The poetry of tags . . .

Spot has started using Technorati tags on some of his posts. In the course of using them, and observing their use by other reprobates like Mr. Sponge, it occurs to Spotty that a new, and up to now mostly latent, literary form inheres in tags. For example, here is Spot's favorite so far:
Walmart Jesus Saves Katherine Kersten
Of course, additional mischief is possible because of the fact that the tag and the tag label that shows in the post don't have to be the same. So, you could link a label "Clueless Boob" to posts about George Bush in the Technorati database.

It's a little like haiku in that the form challenges the writer.

Go to it people.
