Zinging sasquatch

Providing more evidence that he is the weirdest of the Beastie Boys, Adam Yauch has written a Sasquatch-themed haiku, titled "Lady Mountweazel's Lament," to help kick off a haiku contest to promote the book Carnivorous Nights: On the Trail of the Tasmanian Tiger by Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson. (Crewdson and Yauch are old Brooklyn Friends School mates.)

Yauch's haiku is:

sasquatch o sasquatch
stricken down with crotch rot; BOOF!
old yeti ya-ro

Asked by New York magazine if he might go professional with the haiku, Yauch replied, "Are there professionals? That would be an interesting job. 'Honey, I had a hectic day at the office today. My second line had six syllables, and I just couldn't make it work.'"
