Some seasonal filk

Postby Dave » Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:17 pm

I have a confession and an apology to make.

Years ago, I made a pun in the comments section of a Wapsi Square strip. (I realize that most of you will be shocked by this).

After being fairly judged, and condemned to death-by-suffocation in the Pun Jar for my crime... I punned again. I insisted on the singing of a particular hymn at my wake.

I really do feel that I need to apologize, in that I didn't provide the Gentle Readers with the full libretto of the hymn. As the Christmas season is here I thought I should correct that. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an official copy of the lyrics anywhere... I suspect that MIB may have erased the online versions, after an enraged mob burned the last of the palimpsests.

So, I've had to try to recall it from memory. I think what follows is close to correct (for some strange values of "correct", that is).

Punsters, We Have Seen Them Try

♫ Punsters, we have seen them try
♫ twisting words 'till brains do fry.
♫ Shaggy-dog tales lurking near,
♫ snarling Pun Jar they must fear.

♫ Glooooooooooria, an asphyxis day, oh!
♫ Glooooooooooria, an asphyxis daaaaaay, oh!

♫ Twisted jokers, brilliant fools,
♫ double meanings are their tools.
♫ Warpéd humor they do bear,
♫ There's no pun that they won't dare.

♫ Glooooooooooria, an asphyxis day, oh!
♫ Glooooooooooria, an asphyxis daaaaaay, oh!

♫ In the Pun Jar they must go,
♫ Verbal peace we soon shall know.
♫ Jar them up and seal the lid.
♫ Of their jokes we'll soon be rid.

♫ Glooooooooooria, an asphyxis day, oh!
♫ Glooooooooooria, an asphyxis daaaaaaaaaaaay, oh!

Now, imagine this as it's properly supposed to be sung: by Ted Cassidy.

I'm not sure if that deep, resonant, rhythmic sound is the Pun Jar tapping it's metaphorical foot to keep time, or the rising bile as it readies to surge towards you!

Ted Cassidy could sing? Sadly, I'm at my dad's place, and HughesNet is too slow for casual YouTubing. Must check that out when I get home.

Last verse of that filk is most droll. There ain't enough brain bleach, Dave. *Salute* :mrgreen:
Saccharomyces cerevisiae is the linchpin of civilization.

Dave, how about some seasonably appropriate filk(that way I can wind up the bard{Shneekey} and get him to make some new Holiday filk because I'm bored) please and thank you?
Yanno how some people have Angels/Devils for a conscience? I have a Dark Elf ShadowKnight and a Half Elf Ranger for mine. The really bad part is when they agree on something.
