The Lyrics

Mother Goose always taught the unsavory elements of societal paranoia to the kiddies. Here's a reasonably similar theme I like to call 'Blame the Source'. The fingers all point up the ladder to the top person, just like corporate lawsuits. Of course, the fun is always better when it takes month of troubleshooting an application before you can lay blame to someone or something that is outside your responsibility. Some folks seem to always have that ace up their sleeve when it comes to blaming others.

what a blessing cut-n-paste is, eh Tim? I wasn't sure what to expect but when I cottoned on it was very funny - 555

Great parody, Tim, but where are the mentions of spam? Any website that has forums/messageboards, comment sections and/or e-mail contacts is prone to spam. 5s.
