I've wrote this for Another Blasted Trouble Hole, and was asked to repost here. So I have, rearranged slightly for the benefit of AFP.

Oh, if you don't recognize anything in the spoken bit, take a gander at <http://www.lspace.org/fandom/afp/timelines/index.html>

Usenetter Song

I never wanted to be a lumberjack! Rabbiting on about hanging around in bars wearing women's underwear,

I wanted to be...

An Usenetter!

Leaping from thread to thread, as we post to the magnificent tree of Usenet groups,
The mighty Temple-thread! The Casting, the Gold,
The Great Laundry Debarcle, The Stupidity Contest, The Annual Awful
Alliteration threads, Stone Circle Operating Systems, Jehovah's
Innocent Bystanders, The Holy Anorankh, The rare and interesting
Annotations! The untagged and confusing newbie posts! The
Bibliography! The all powerful Tagging guide!

With my Forte Agent by my side, we'd Post, Post, Post....

I'm an Usenetter and I'm OK, I post all night and I sleep all day,
(He's an Usenetter and he's OK, He posts all night and he sleeps all day,)
I follow threads, I post replies, I read while drinking tea, I archive
all the postings that my server lets me see

(He follows threads, He post replies, He reads while drinking tea, He archives all the postings that his server lets him see)

I'm an Usenetter and I'm OK, I post all night and I sleep all day,
I follow up, I cut the quotes, I go on IRC. My .sig is nearly six lines, and post some UCE

(He follows up, he cuts the quotes, he goes on IRC. His sig is nearly six lines? and he posts some UCE?!)

I'm an Usenetter and I'm OK, I post all night and I sleep all day,
I post the spam, I've never read the freaking F.A.Qs
I like to troll most newsgroups, and flame those who are new!

(He posts the spam, he's never read the freaking F.A.Q's?!

*pause*

He's an Usenetter and He's OK, He posts all night and he sleeps all day,
He's an Usenetter and He's Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay,
He posts all night and he sleeps all day)

Here endeth my second ever filk :)

Do mine ears here the rattle of a fine-jar on the wind?

* Aquarion makes a break for the docks

Yours in total sincerity,

Aquarion
