Catfish rampant.With two, catfish combatant.Catfish hauriant!

Combatant catfish?Only if they are fighting!*Respectant* catfish(unless, of course, oneis the notorious Bay State Blue).Sorry -- thats a tanka, not a haiku, but I had to expand the theme *just* a bit (tanka are similar to haiku, but slightly longer, and are 5-7-5-7-7).This thread is being way too much fun :thumbup: So:Catfish is grinning:It *knows* you want special ink.Warden or Bernanke?Ruth Morrisson aka inkstainedruth



Thank you for telling

us about Tanka, yet more

poetic license,

to extend our knowledge and

to give more lines to play with.

Warden Bernanke

in a bad jail film.

Catfish rampant --Five of Pens.

Any charge, facing itself, rampant, is combatant; they may be drilling or loving. Facing each other. Probably won't be in the catfish tarot.

Catfish hauriant, a fish standing vertically.

There's a whole language (mostly French?) about this.

It's mostly Norman, or Anglo-Norman French (i.e., early medieval, as opposed to modern French). Actually, to be more specific, "hauriant" swimming upwards (as opposed to "naiant" (swimming horizontally) or "urinant" (swimming downwards).
Combatant *only* refers to two critters rampant (which is the two front legs outstretched, with one back leg downward and the other also outstretched or partly outstretched) and facing each other. If they aren't specifically rampant, but still facing each other, they are said to be "respectant". And neither are heraldic postures for fish....
Wow. I'm teaching heraldry on FPN (all my SCA friends will probably laugh and point when they find out...; especially my friend in North Carolina, who had to draw a "heraldic" catfish one time a few years ago). :roflmho:
We now return you to the previously scheduled haiku competition....

Heraldic Catfish:
naiant or urinant
or hauriant.

Sadly, the only human language I know is American English.

Well, i've been doing book heraldry and heraldic research in the SCA for over 30 years at this point (and have been a heraldic artist for about 25), so I know the jargon pretty well.... OTOH, when I go out to dinner with my husband and his friends and they start in with the computer geekspeak my eyes start to glaze over.... As do theirs, when I start talking about pens. :rolleyes:

Different jargons;
even in the same language,
they separate us.

The SCA brings a smile to my face whenever I hear of them. Geeks of today, geeks of yesteryear, geeks of tomorrow, geeks forever! That that language has not been lost is something to rejoice, I feel.

Heraldic geek-speak
Centuries of daily use,
centuries ago.

Who now remembers
Programming Language One or
FAST FORTRAN to core?

Playing with words unites
Minds across the internet

and order it rare.
