Translation, with apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan:

"For I'm called little Dunderhead, dear little Chunderhead,
Though I could never tell why!
But still I'm called Thickasmuck, poor little Shitlesscluck
Sad little Trollingfuck I.

"I've trolled and abused, then been shamefully used
By those who write better than me.
But I couldn't be shamed, though most skilfully flamed,
Because I've the brains of a flea.

"So I whimpered and mewled, I puked and I drooled,
And called it an answering post,
And right up to the end, I still tried to pretend
That I hadn't been crisped to a toast.

"For I've always relied on my thick trollish hide
(In lieu of both talent and wit);
I just cover my ears and ignore my sad fears,
That I'm just an embarrassing tit."
