I spent a long time trying to get a haiku that didn't talk about food consumption and use the word "oy", cause none of them made sense. Like this one.

...and I think I've figured out the script's algorithm for counting syllables. It considers all pairs of vowels to be dipthongs, and counts the number of occurrences of vowels/dipthongs in a word and considers that the number of syllables. Hence, it messes up sometime, counting "wasn't" as one syllable and "medium" as two...

Eating time.

What, you mean medium isn't two syllables? And here I was thinking it was pronounced 'meed-yum'. ;)

English really is quite silly.
