Mountains o' Etowah

[Sung to the tune of “Mountains o’ Mourne”]

Oh, Eric, your place here’s a wonderful sight
With bloggy folks drinking by day and by night
They stand by the grill and they watch you cook meat
It’s more fun than rolling around in the street
And in your garage here, it’s just a bit warmer
Playin’ pool with a guy who likes Chicken Korma
With these fine Online Writers, we’re so glad to be
At the home of Straight White Guy here in Tennessee.

We believe that when writin’ you use them ellipses
To the point where your readers all feel kinda tipsy
And let’s not forget them italics. They’re keen...
It’s a style that you learned as a young Marine
“Great American Novel” material? Maybe...
But why pay when we read your bullshit for free
With these fine Online Writers, we’re so glad to be
At the home of Straight White Guy here in Tennessee.

There’s beautiful girls here, Caltechgirl and Bou
Lovely Princess Fiona, and Morrigan, too
Say hello to That 1 Guy, and Yabu, and Dax
And that Elisson, writin’ ’bout chunks of earwax
They’re out in the back, drinking single malt scotches
And telling V-Man to stay ’way from their crotches
With these fine Online Writers, we’re so glad to be
At the home of Straight White Guy here in Tennessee.

You remember the Old Grouchy Cripple, of course
He rolled his ass here with the rest of the force
And let’s drink to Zonker, the Mulleted One
Who never writes posts but who always has fun
Let’s not forget Jimbo, who came down from New Joisey
(I heard him complaining, “Dese crickets is noisy!”)
With these fine Online Writers, we’re so glad to be
At the home of Straight White Guy here in Tennessee.

I was wondering where I was until I saw "fine Online Writers" which totally lets me out. Heh.

Is Eric coming back soon?

Bullshitted by Erica on May 16, 2007 07:02 PM

Excellent wordsmithing per usual, Elisson.

A few more excellent posts like this will hopefully make up for the whole ManBoobs thing.

that post still makes me laugh. and its always good to see it in print, because when you were singing it, there was so much laughing I think I missed something here and there. ;-)
