Newsgroup Personality


To be sung to the 'Pirates Of Penzance' tune 'Modern Major General' (author unknown):
I am the very model of a Newsgroup Personality I intersperse obscenity with tedious banality. Addresses I have plenty of, both genuine and ghosted to, On all the countless newsgroups that my drivel is cross-posted to.
Your bandwidth I will fritter with my whining and my snivelling, And you're the one who pays the bill downloading all my drivelling. My enemies are numerous, and no one would be blaming you For cracking my head open after I've been rudely flaming you.
I hate to lose an argument (by now I should be used to it). I wouldn't know a valid point if I was introduced to it. My learning is extensive but consists of mindless trivia, Designed to fan my ego, which is larger than Bolivia.
The comments that I vomit forth, disguised as jest and drollery, Are really just an exercise in unremitting trollery. I say I'm frank and forthright, but that's merely lies and vanity, The gibberings of one who's at the limit of his sanity.
If only I could get a life, as many people tell me to; If only mum could find a circus freak-show she could sell me to; If I go off to Zanzibar to paint the local scenery; If I lose all my fingers in a mishap with machinery;
If I survive to forty, which is somewhat problematical; If what I post was more mature, or slightly more grammatical; If I could learn to spell a bit, and maybe even punctuate; Would I still be the loathsome and objectionable punk you hate?
But while I have this tiresome urge to prance around and show my face, It simply isn't safe for normal people here in cyberspace. To stick me in Old Sparky and turn on the electricity Would be a fitting punishment for my egocentricity.
I always have the last word; so, with utmost finality, That's all from me, the model of a Newsgroup Personality.

A real hoot. And for the record, a ditty from one of the many operettas by Gilbert and Sullivan. Now how about maybe a take off on "let the pnishment fit the crime..."?

If I remember correctly, Gilbert wrote the lyrics, and Sullivam wrote the music.
And very well done too, Congratulations.
