Really don’t like Glenn Beck? Write a poem about it.

Such is the conceit of Haik U Glenn Beck, a crowd-sourced collection of hundreds of haikus dedicated to the conspiracy-minded Fox News host.

Ticked off by a recent exhortation by Beck to listeners of his syndicated radio show to “run” from churches that employ the term “social justice” on their Web pages, Jewish Funds for Justice created a site that allows witty Beck-haters a creative outlet for their dislike.

Some of our favorites:

And Jesus said to
All his hungry disciples
“Hands off my fish, chumps”
By drudgedevo

Hurling expensive
coffee at the expensive
TV screen now, Ahhh.
By Christopher Buckley
