Should you put haikus in your handouts?

On Saturday morning I heard a story on National Public Radio about a dozen new traffic warning signs in New York City that were written as haiku poems. That’s an interesting approach to a typically dull subject. My versions for two of them are shown above.

Haiku might be used as headlines or titles for graphic slides. Better still, they could be used in handouts. I Googled the combination of public speaking and haiku, and found the following excellent one in an August 2009 blog post by Angela DeFinis.
