The Lyrics

Personally, I just don't see it... daahling!
Great sing along version here.
Pun man — welcome to Am-I-Right®
I said, pun man — you'll fit Right® in 'our site'
I said, pun man — 'cause our pacing's so tight!
Can you see — where — this — is — head-ed?!

Pun man — let's all mock Barrack's 'Hope™'
I said, pun man — then spoof Palin-as-Pope
And when done, man — we can play 'drop-the-soap'!
O - kay, *now* — we're — mess - in' — with — ewe!

[ Farce! - Farce! - Farce! - ARSE! - PARSE!]

I'm wondrin' why you think — Wry Men Seem Gay!?
'Cause perfect penmanship's — Très macho, eh?
Sure, each write's a huge fuss—
Of elab-or-ate-nuss—
But our I.Q.s are hu-mon-gous!

I just can't fathom why — Wry Men Seem Gay!?
Our past subjunctives are — butch—total-la-ay!
We're the Luthors of Lex—
Flaunting tropes n' waxed pecs—
With a fetish for Al Trebeks!


Some men — don't get fancy-pants wit!
Where-as pun men — can trans-pose "fissy hit'
But n00b pun men — we expect you'll 'submit'
To our — ri - gor - ous — 'peer' — re - views!

Pun men — write for Will and dis Grace!
I said, pun men — often post on MyFace™!
Robust pun men — homophonics embrace!
Or at — least — own — pos— ters — of - Cher!

[ Arse! - Farce! - Parse! - YERS? - OURS! ]

I'm Gaga-livid that — Wry Men Seem Gay!?
C'est très confounding moi — Wry Men's Seem Gay!?
Hard at grooming our posts—
Fluffing phenomes all night—
Hoping fabulous fans will bite!

I'm just so peeved you think — Wry Men Seem Gay!?
I'm gushing 'huffy' like — Lib - er- a ch - a-ay!
'Cause we're *totally* FIERCE—
Feel my piquancy's pierce?—
We're as manly as Ambrose Bierce! *

Wry - Men - Seem - Gay?
WHAT - *EV* — Ren-ee!


* 19th century American writer and satirist, best known for his short story, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge". Also legendary for "...encouraging young talent"!

Laughing so his-ter-ectom-ically by the fifth and sixth lines that it was, uh, "hard" to "finish"! Fave lines? I'd have to reprint the entire parody. They're ALL waaay over the top! Why, every "clause, it" spurts wit (dreams)! Blow to the "head" of the cl-ass! ... I think these Fives would look mah-velous on you, Dahling, but really not enough - maybe a few pink accents?

John--Thank you kindly sir... and funny!
Phil--Thanks... I know its not to everyone's taste, but it tickled my fabulously ticklish (really, Mase-esque) funny bone!
OMR--Appreciate it, guy... but you're definitely *no* village or any other kinda idiot (Though, admittedly, based on my limited information, you could be an idiot savant (heavy on the savant)!
FG--Thank you kindly, ma'lady... but I hope you don't now think of me as some sort of V.D. Pal'in'sir!
