The Lyrics

I didn't mean to do this song again, honest... but after reading this thread on the Tim Minchin fan forum (and a bit of the eponymous dissertation mentioned), this kind of got stuck in my head. If you're after a bit of truly mind-numbing idiocy, have a read of this
Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation
Is a mix of ignorance and biblical relation
And it has less science in than Lampoon's First Vacation
Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation

Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD
Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD

I guess he wasn't taught to think when he was just a lad
Expressions of critical thought were looked upon as bad
But then one day he found the pseudo-science of ID
You don't need to be taught to think to get a PhD, whee!

Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation
Reckons that things biblical need no corroboration
Doesn't look at evidence, nor experimentation
Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation

Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD
Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD

It's full of strawmen, crap and lies and loads of other shite
And it is obvious the chap who wrote it was not bright
If you must quote the second law of thermodynam-ics
Try and understand it so you don't look like a thick - prick

Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation
Frankly comes across to me as mental masturbation
PhDs for unsupported Truth by Revelation?
Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation

Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD
Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD
Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD
Hmm.. wibble drivel wibble, ooh! PhD

You could read it backwards, and it would probably make as much sense

But when that prat is looking dumb, there's no need for dismay:
The global flood is what made the Grand Canyon look that way?
And dinosaurs died out because, of course, they couldn't swim?
So everyone: thank God that you are not as thick as him, oh

Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation
Basic'ly it's waffle in support of God's creation
Don't you wish he'd spent a bit more time in education?
Creationist Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation

This is why I never bothered to get my Ph. D. .....

(btw, link points to his dissertation.pdf, but when clicked, goes to wilkileaks and a fund-raising appeal. Where's the pdf, and was there a typo in the link?)

:-) Thanks all

TT - looks like it must have gone/wikileaks problem (when I click it, it goes to a "gateway timed out" error). That was the link I used to download the thing to start with. I'm sure it'll be googlable (is that a word?), though.
