Limerick Disclaimer for each new version of the PD
« on: January 13, 2009, 10:46:51 pm »
As Regret and I discussed on IRC, the continuing annoyance of Discordian new-comers mindlessly repeating tired old meme's in an attempt to be funny or to 'fit in' needs to be stopped. Given that they are getting these meme's from the PD, we thought it wise that every new version of the PD released should carry this small disclaimer at the beginning. We composed it in the form of a limerick, so that it can be matched to a catchy tune or sung in a silken voice at a whim. It goes as such:

"There once was a girl who was bored
She decided to try out discord
And quoth her each meme
Even ones that were lame
Until we brutally stabbed her multiple times in the chest for being so annoying, breaking both her major arteries as well as her poem's rhythm. Fnord."



We thank you.
After all, wasn't it Oscar Wilde who was arrested for sodomy? Sorry, I'm not quite sure why I said that...

"Meme" and "lame" don't rhyme.

But she found instant fame

There once was a girl, quite bored
whom everyone always ignored
She thought she broke free
When she found the PD
But she showed up here and we treated her like crap, because her real problem was that she was an uncreative twit, which is why most people ignored her to begin with,
because you can't fix lame with FNORD.

Quite possibly the better version. Mittens to you, good sir. Now to get this in print...

Her memes, were but lame

Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

I think this version loses some clarity about the repition of old memes. Not bad though.

There once was a girl, quite bored
whom everyone always ignored
She thought she broke free
When she found the PD
But she showed up here and we treated her like crap, because her real problem was that she was an uncreative twit, which is why most people ignored her to begin with,
because you can't fix lame with FNORD.

Also pretty cool, but the same loss of message.

"There once was a girl, quite bored
She decided to try out discord
And quoth her each meme
Even ones that lacked awesome-cream
Until we brutally stabbed her multiple times in the chest for being so annoying, breaking both her major arteries as well as her poem's rhythm. Fnord."

how about that one?

It turned out to be IANAR,
So we just kind of ignored her until she went away.
