More celebrities should be forced to do interviews in verse: Alton Brown did a whole interview on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in haiku. While the Food Network host/champagne swordsman/fashionista did have to count syllables on his fingers (what, like you wouldn't?), some of his responses are pretty clever. For example, in response to "When you cook at home, are you a mad scientist or a normal cook?" Brown says:

When I cook at home / I never don a lab coat / But things do explode

When asked if there is anything he won't eat:

I typically like / Any dish that I am served / Raisins optional

Oh, there's more where that came from:
