I like it. :) And how interesting! The haiku form depends on the netspeak LOL being pronounced as one syllable. I'd never even thought about there being a pronunciation before, but if I had I think I would have spelled it out, "el-oh-el" - but three syllables don't work.

I've always said it as one syllable. In my head, that is; I don't think I've ever actually said it out loud. I do have some dignity, after all.

Now that you mention it, the pronunciation in my head has been inconsistent: I thought LOL would be spelled aloud as three syllables, but I thought "LOLcats" would be two syllables.
