I just realized that "Hey girl, when you gonna let me tap that?" is in iambic pentameter. I'm going to write a poem...

But soft! What ass on yonder dance floor shakes?
it definitely is iambic pentameter. win!
whoever says otherwise is stupid, I've studied shakespeare for years.
I wanna see the poem now..
it's actually trochaic pentameter. stressed/unstressed. iambic is unstressed/stressed.
Everyone who recognized this person's Iambic Fail has restored my faith in humanity. Thank you.
doth she maketh it clap, 12:43
Haha, funny concept regardless.
For pity's sake... What are u people? the grammar/lit police???? The posts on here aren't meant to meet some editing standard. They're just funny stuff people text (usually when drunk) The flaws are what make them so funny... Geez
If you let "girl" be two syllables, gir-uhl, then you get a nice iambic line with a feminine ending, which I think is appropriate to the situation.
People who argue over this shit on this website are are so annoying. Just say if it's funny or not you fucking idiots. Jesus Christ
This is beautiful.
You all have made an English teacher very happy today.
I think I know who sent this. Either that or one of my friends is pretty un-fucking-original
For reallllll! total stanton kid.
I <3 12:43...so amazing
hey GIRL when YOU gonNA let ME tap THAT... no
no it does work as trochaic pentameter, HEY girl WHEN you GONna LET me TAP that
11:41 (1) is right...
It's trochaic pentameter, you ignoramus. Go take Intro to Lit again.
4:15-- Agreed!... But to those who think that it is trochaic pentameter have restored my disdain in humanity.,
Apparently 12:15 never covered poetic meter in school. Nor did he/she learn to use his/her indoor voice.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE YELLING ABOUT
Iamb does not good poetry make.
Ahahahaha FAIL!!!!!! Hahaha
I love this guy already.
I found that fucking hilarious, regardless if it was in iambic pentameter or not. Bud its so hard to write in iambic pent though. Seriously you'll get stumped after 30 lines trust me.
Iambic pentameter is 10 syllables.
FUUUCK IM RAGING. THATS NOT IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER.
THIS IS GOING TO FLIP ME THE SHIT OUT FOR THE REST OF THE DAY.
Just because it has 10 syllables doesn't make it iambic. And I am embarrassed for the English teacher that praised this without scanning it first.
Iambic pentameter is 5, not 7.
A better iambic line: "Hey baby won't you let me tap that ass?".
Just getting it out there...
Hahaha. No. 12.07 is right. Fail.
Trying to be smart when you're not...priceless!
1:03, it's "Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio."
Ahahahahahahahahh never thought I would ever see this out side high school ahhaha
This is awesome. And it works.
Oooooooh my god you guys even though were on a website full of drunk texts lets all just make fun of his wrong knowledge of pentameters lolololol wut an epic fail \n... Grow the fuck up and remember what site you're on
I agree with 6:18.
12:43, you're my new favorite person
Nope, that's in throchaic pentameter
LMAO 2:25 "whore-actio"
shakespeare already used that line in henry VII
Did Ryan Gosling send this?
Actually, other than "gonNA" it makes sense to me.
Lets everyone say it aloud as if it were iambic pentameter:
"hey GIRL, when YOU gonNA let ME tap THAT?"
Now let's all laugh at this person's stupidity.
wrong, but a funny concept all the same.
