Parody Song Title:

"A Witty Song Can Be Very Fun"

Parody Written by:

Rick Duncan

The Lyrics

More site-related G&S--- Or is that B&S?
A witty song can be very fun
As broad as the written word
An overrated tune should be ripe for a lampoon
A trip to the absurd

If prose you can't
Even sort-of write
You'll still chip in
With a poem tonight
Ideas should come
A creative spurt
You might even also wind up
On a tight T-shirt

Your brain should think in an oddball way
Sarcastic be your wit
You never should refrain
When your friends think you're insane
And your spouse doesn't quite "get it"

Your rhymesshould scan
And should always mock
Your work should probe
Even sometimes shock
Though there's no cash
It's a hobby rude
And you can even do it
When you're in the nude
When in the nude (pose)
When in the nude (pose)
When in
The
Noooooooooode!

:-) I was wondering if you'd be dropping in for this G&S extravaganza, Rick.

Remember when Picard, Worf and Data sang this OS in "Star Trek: Insurrection"? Let's just say it wasn't a classic of Klingon opera.

I'd call it " D & S " for " Dilbert & Sullivan ".
