Following with the Pseudo factual theme of the main page, Sophia is the gnostic deity of Wisdom, sort of. In our case, the potato is hereby named Sophia. Unless, you guys have a better idea. --Chronarion 15:36, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)
I like it. In addition to her potato-based heraldic mythology, she should perhaps be credited for inventing the haiku in the early 18th-century. (Which explains why haikus are so frequently written in her honour.) - Flaneur
I love this page. Whoever did the formatting afterwards, props. --Chronarion 14:23, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)
Nice formatting, but
Broken at places

Sofia's first line
And this is her second line
And this her third line.
as not being a Haiku, but it does follow the 5,7,5 syllable rule (line is one syllable due to the silent e) --Towr 02:22, 11 Mar 2005 (EST)
Hmm, cool. I corrected the spelling too. --Chronarion 02:34, 11 Mar 2005 (EST)
If it was the first line that got my haiku marked as none-haiku. Pure is one syllable. It it was the second verse, I did indeed miss a syllable, but 'a' was easily inserted. If I missed something else let me know --Towr 17:27, 13 Mar 2005 (EST)
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Would not "Sofia's first line / And this is her second line / And so to her third" provide a more elegant version with the elision of the second repetion of "line" neatly evading the trap of sounding like a class of schoolboys learning their times tables. (If in fact they still do that). But I do think it a little cruel to mark your effort as a "none - haiku" which has the suggestion that your haiku pointed to some existential crisis of meaning, when in fact it celebrates orderly and natural linear progress, and points to the possibilities of gains by humble incremental progress. myles325a (firstname.lastname@example.org) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
of haiku, smites the wicked
with a big red stamp
listed under "Not Haiku"? So/phi/a / god/dess (5) of / hai/ku / smites / the / wick/ed (7) with / a / big / red / stamp (5). --Rcmurphy 22:51, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)
Yes, that is a Haiku. It introduces the section about non-haikus, as well as the practice of stamping them with a big red stamp. The concluding haiku is also a haiku, once again reaffirming that the last non-haiku really wasn't one.
Basicly they're in that section because they are about the topic, and I felt they fitted there better than elsewhere
--Towr 05:21, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
- I knew that, I just wanted to see if you knew. Alternate explanation: I'm just dumb. --Rcmurphy 17:46, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
- Yeah, that's pretty obvious, Murphy. -- 18:28, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Does anybody know where Sophia is from? I'd like to think she is a Prince Edward Island spud but I don't want to presume --Pnorf 11:42, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
It hasn't been established where she's from. But note that Sophia (the gnostic Deity), isn't the potato (mascot of uncyclopedia). The latter is named after her, because potatoes are the symbol of her wisdom (or something like that).
(Also, I suspect that big red stamp she marks non-haiku with is made from a potato. Because potato stamps are cool)
--Towr 11:51, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
Its Italian (sophia Loren)
I'm not too happy with the latest restructuring. Some haikus were supposed to go together, and others depended on the order. Now it's just a mess of loose haikus..
hmm.. Maybe I'll try to figure it out later, and group haikus appropriately.
--Towr 05:14, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)
I've re-restructured the article. If you don't agree it's any better, feel free to revert it (I haven't added anything new, except structure and grouping)
--Towr 10:50, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)
I thought it'd be nice to do make the table of content haiku too. But I'm stretching it a bit at some points I'm afraid. So if anyone can improve on it, please do so.
(And now back to thinking up Haiku, for the honour of Sophia)
Hmm... i'm not sure how much I like the new format, the old one sort of let you find the new ones at the bottom, and seemed more like a joke gone bad. But, it's kind of elegant-er now. --Chronarion 17:01, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)
- The new ones didn't only appear at the bottom though. I suppose there's something to be said for the "joke gone bad". And we could always make a seperate page if we want to 'seriously' devellop the mythology of Sophia (or other related aspects. The meta-haiku f.i. might fit better on the haiku page).
--Towr 05:53, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
Well, I liked mine better, but I suppose that is because it was a cleaner format than this one. To each their own. Also, when I did the formatting I added a few and turned the non-haiku into haiku and dropped the retarded ones, like the one with the labia and the suppositories, those things shouldn't really be listed cause of sheer suck.
Nmontague 22:35, 30 Mar 2005 (EST)
My biggest problem with your formatting was that several haikus that went together got pulled apart. And at the very least I think it might be good to seperate the myth forming haiku from the others (actually I had thought we had more of those than turned out to be the case. We need more!)
As is the nature of a wiki, nothing is permanently lost, so we can vote on it. I'm willing enough restore it in any layout agreed upon (adding also additions from after the reforms).
--Towr 05:32, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
- It's fine really, I just prefer simpler things when there is so little, your system is better if the haikus grow, mine just made the small number there look less like an endless list. Plus I didn't like leaving the non-haikus in the haikus section so I tossed or converted where I could.
18.104.22.168 13:19, 31 Mar 2005 (EST)
- Hm, personally i'm not sure. I'm impartial here. But this is one of the artsier pages :) --Chronarion 00:50, 1 Apr 2005 (EST)
Hmm, I liked how it was earlier, it looked more artsy martsy, but this is ok,get rid of the table of contents though. It breaks Sophia's heart --Nytrospawn 18:46, 4 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Is there any way to do that such that it's still possible to edit the different sections seperately? --Towr 04:59, 5 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Another wiki vandal just wasted our page for our goddess of wisdom --Nytrospawn 01:06, 9 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Use the tag line for
Blessed by Sophia
This is a haiku if you adopt the Middle English (Shakesperian) pronunciation (bless-ed).
- Or if you say So-phi-a. ---- 02:15, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
- What, people were pronouncing Sophia some other way? How else would any literate person pronounce it?
The "Not Haiku" section is totally empty, and we now have non-haiku's in the haiku sections. Maybe we should put a header saying "Only Haikus". And someone get back those non-haiku's because some of them were actually funny.
Too late. --18:28, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
O dear sophia
(5-7-5, man, 5-7-5! Also, the table of contents is haiku as well)
When I wrote it, I kinda intended 'dear' to be two :( , but it makes more sense as one. Plus extra uber poetic points!
- Or it can be O / dear / So/phi/a. That's five. ---- 02:15, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
my first effort
Am new to UP and don't know where this one belongs, but if anyone likes it then place it appropriately. Manning Bartlett 01:48, 6 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Haha... all you have to do is go to the Sophia page, click edit, scroll down to ==Here's to Sophia==, and put it there, formatted like the rest of the poems. --04:44, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)
With all due respect to Nytrospawn, the Sophia Loren picture is funny.
In fact, it is extremely "FUCKING" funny.
Steve Johnsenson 02:01, 13 Sep 2005 (UTC)
What is Sophia?
A person, or a concept?
Sophia is... HOT!
She really was quite something back in the day wasn't she??
Someone should make fakes of her
- Egad, that would be creepy. --Chronarion 05:35, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)
- Who needs it? The picture on my talk page is sultry enough. Rawr... --—rc (t) 02:59, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Can we get an actual article?
Not to insult the haikus and all, but the page ought some other content on it too. I once added a timeline of Sophia's life, documenting events such as her invention of boobies, but it got deleted, simply because it wasn't a haiku. What's the big deal about the haikus? --Nintendorulez 00:52, 1 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Maybe...but we'd have to put it on a different page, like Sophia's article or something...and that was you who made the timeline? I deleted it - sorry. Put it somewhere else, like on the Haiku page or the Poetry page, but not on Sophia.
insted of adding an actual 'article' to the Sophia page, why don't you just make a new entry and call it 'Sofia', becuase the Sofia's of the world are far more important then the Sophia's of the world.
Criteria for Deleting/Altering Haiku
What do you think? I believe, in respect to our sacred Sophia, that we should list reasons why Haiku should be deleted.
1. Horrible or just plain dumb
2. Too obscene. Licentious is all right, but try to keep content at a "featured article" level. We don't want the page of our beloved founder to become a shock page ("shock site" material).
Here are reasons why haiku should be altered:
1. Obviously careless incorrect spelling (where changing it does not affect word-play, # of syllables, other junk)
2. Incorrectly placed category. Just change the catergory! "Not haiku" can be considered a catergory, but people should not add directly into it. This is because purposeful defamation of Sophia's name is a near-felony act.
3. Should Sofia be made into Sophia? I don't know.
I will, with discretion, add back my haiku, which 22.214.171.124 deleted. This IP seems to have an interesting taste in editing distasteful articles, as seen by some of their earlier edits. I'll add my haiku back in one week, unless someone responds against it. It said:
Sophia means what?
Well, "sohpia" means knowledge
In the Greek language.
It's not especially good, but it describes the very cornerstone upon which Uncyclopedia was built: knowledge. Right?
This is all for the greater glory of Sophia. (Versimilitude is fun.) -Gracenotes 01:05, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
I would add it back! --Chronarion 06:21, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
Those are all great ideas. Now, what happened to "Empty Section" near the bottom? ----22:45, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Bottom of the page
Is it okay if I restore the bottom of the page to its old form? ----21:41, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
Wikipedia says that Sophia is the potato. Somebody rectum-fy this. 126.96.36.199 16:09, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
- The potato's name is Sophia, but it's named after Sophia, the agnostic goddess of wisdom, who is our muse. The potato and the goddess are separate but share the same name. —rc (t) 16:19, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Everything they just SAID was non-non-non-satirical.. Master Ninja Repku-sama 04:46, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Should we put this so it's...
featured on UnCyc's birthday? It hasn't been featured, so I thought it would be a good idea to put it up on our humble site's birthday. Colin ALL YOUR BASEHeaney! Casa Bey Superfly Portfolio 03:08, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

These contributions by "Sznscand" in Chinese do not have 17 syllables in 5,7,5. Therefore please do not consider them as haiku.
In Chinese, one word = one syllable.
Is Sophia real? I'm not entirely sure If you'll respond, see?
