The Lyrics

Inspired by one of my favourite of many brilliant XKCD cartoons Duty Calls
One way I get my kicks
Is arguing relig-ee-yun or politics
Especially if I've had a drink or two
And it's always very easy to find someone who

Wrong on the internet
Wrong on the internet
Wrong on the internet
Wrong on the internet

Man thinks he can use science to show
The world is only six thousand years old
Both of us think, we're gonna win
So we both have to get the last word in
But he's


Guy in a chat-room, he
Was saying it's effective, homeopathy
This one, know I'm gonna win it
His argument is so dilute there's nothing in it
Yeah, he's


I remember some guy who
Said if you argue with a fool
Make sure that he isn't too
He'll drag you down, to his kind of dense
And then he'll beat you with experience

I know it's past the time that I should go to bed
But I gotta write a counter to what that guy said
3am, still going strong
Know that I'm right, and I know that he's wrong

He's a wrong dumb sucker on the internet
Wrong on the internet
Just a stupid wrong cretin on the internet
Wrong on the internet

Never invade Russia or China, never call Boomer Essiason "Norman," and NEVER get in flame wars with an idiot on the 'net!

The problem with blatantly wrong facts on the internet is that for every one you see through there's an ever weired and harder to belive AFK truth popping up, like today when Obama was rewarded with the Nobel Peace Prize (I just don't get it. For sending more troops to 'Stan? Not closing down Guantanamo? Not lifting a hand to preserve democrazy in Honduras? Pissing of North Korea and Iran even more than before?).

I would never get into it with someone on the internet - there are a bunch of crazy people out there - oh, wait a minute, isn't this part of the internet and I'm voicing an opinion. Enough said.

It's never wrong to be right, no matter how long it takes to prove it! ;)

Phil, have you tried Wikipedia? Just curious. :-D ... Five flippers up, and TThanks for reminding me that I haven't checked xkcd this week.

I could have ignored this parody and not given it a five, but that would have been wrong.

:-) Thanks all. Tried playing this one through, but I think it's going to be a bit boring as a performance piece, to be honest. Too much chorus that you really can't do all that much with. But I could be wrong.
