Employees Must Wash Haiku

Journeyman is a fantastic restaurant. If you haven’t, go eat there. In the bathrooms at Journeyman you won’t see signs that say “Employees must wash hands”. You’ll see some pretty damned funny haiku nicely framed on the wall which meet the same legal requirement. When I read these haiku I thought one thing: Classical music comedy.

These three videos feature haiku by Mindy Klenoff, Georg Lauer and myself. The original Facebook thread on which they were written and the walls of Journeyman’s bathrooms have many more. As for performers: Elisabeth Halliday is singing, and Lorna Krier is playing a really cool piano/synthesizer hybrid. Those hands washing themselves belong to my uncle, Brian. Enjoy!
