Contents Change Frequently

The strange doings of celebrities drop in and out of the public consciousness. Therefore, whenever there is actual content on this page, it probably won't stay for long. If this page is empty, then check back here the next time a celebrity does or says something stupid in public.

I have attempted to identify the copyright holders and the effective dates of the copyrights, as noted below. If my information is incorrect, please let me know and I will fix the attributions.

I do not grant permission to redistribute the contents of this page. When people start passing this kind of thing around via email, some schmuck invariably decides to “improve” the content. (That's what happened to Gene Ziegler's poem, “A Grandchild's Guide to Using Grandpa's Computer”.) Also, I'm a software developer. That means that anything I write is liable to be updated to a later version some day. So if you want to share any of this content, just pass around the URL, not the actual content. That way everybody gets to see the latest version, and I don't have to track down somebody who ruined my work in the name of improving it.

You can send me suggestions for improvements and additions if you like, but if your suggestion consists of more than a few words, I won't be able to use it. Otherwise, we'd wind up with multiple copyright holders, and I just don't want to deal with that. Sorry.

A Day in the Twitter Account

Sung to the tune of “A Day in the Life” (copyright © 1967 by the Beatles).

I read a tweet today, oh boy,
About those lucky anchors at CNN.
It said their news was rather fake,
But I just had to laugh.
I read the epitaph.

He blew our minds with crazy deeds,
Misogynistic tweets from his account.
A crowd of people running scared,
Are Russians on the beach?
Nobody was really sure
If someday soon he’ll be impeached.

I saw a press conference, oh boy.
The Prez had just met with that Russian dude.
A crowd of people holding mics,
But I knew what’d he say.
We’re all gonna pay.
I’d love to have him gone.

Woke up, turned on the news,
Insulted women, blacks, and Jews.
Found my old cell phone and sent a tweet,
Oh it was sweet, but I must get to work.

Walked in the door, waved to the spooks,
Looked at the button for the nukes.
I won’t press it yet, but maybe soon,
Maybe high noon, maybe sooner than you think.

I read a tweet today, oh boy.
It said that John Podesta is to blame.
And though the tweet was rather strange,
It isn’t hope and change,
Now we know how many tweets it takes to seem like you’re deranged.
I’d love to have him gone.
