Valve has made it very clear that they’re not ready to talk about the next installment of Half-Life, let along admit that it’s currently in development, but that doesn’t mean that studio head Gabe Newell isn’t above having fun with fans who e-mail him asking about the game, while stirring the pot in the meantime.

The story goes like this; a Reddit user reportedly sent a tongue-in-cheek e-mail containing the following Haiku to Newell:

Do you like haikus?
I like to write them sometimes…
Episode 3 soon?

And here’s Newell’s response:

Haikus are neato
They have a rigid structure
Episode 3 ships in

When? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHEN? Newell you cheeky bastard you…
