I appreciate the response I have thus far recieved, and might I add
that 'tis most gratifying to know that I yet retain the capacity to surprise
others -- such as when I recently performed Richard III's "Now Is the Winter
of Our Discontent" soliliquy /sans/ preparation for a few associates.
Taking into account the suggestions, I hence proffer Mark II:
It's time for ShadowManiacs!
And we're posting to the max!
So, set your keyboards in your laps
You'll type 'til you collapse
Come join the Fearless Leader
And his Dread Executor, too
They're the ones who admin this crazy mailing zoo
They bring their carps down,
Whenever things come unglued,
But threads break loose
And now you know the mood!
Hayden is cute while Doom give threads the axe.(1)
J.D. Falk packs away the FAQs
While Bill Clinton plays the sax.
Meet Damion and Gurth, both named "guru" on a lark,
Cornholio demands t.p.; Doom thwaps him with a carp
Whistler grumbles daily, and then the arguments start
Oh, no -- FASA's goofed
Here come the spoofs
See how the rules can warp!
We want play-test-ing contracts!
We're discordant to the max
There's contention on the facts
*You'll never be the same-y!
*(insert gripe book) sure is lame-y!
*Who's to blame-y?
*Go ahead and flame me!
*Our SysOps complain-y!
*The Dark Lords maintain-y!
*Not Quickenings AGAIN-Y!
Those are the FAQs.
(1) This is a reference to Hayden's solicitation for (and reasons
meriting) votes. As I recall, there was a task force proposed
to journey to Mankato and determine if, in fact, the adjective
was fitting, but I believe the measure died in committee.
>Now, can you do one to Don McLean's American Pie?
I enexorably recollect the rejoinder submitted by Deep Thought when inquired
as to THE question (of Life, the Universe, & Everything):
