Hello, althought this filk won't mean much to a lot of you, I've decided to post it anyway. I chat regularly on #AFP and #ICQ, and on the latter I have been subjected (almost every day) to the punishment[1] of becoming the topic by saying things that seem alright when I say them, but incredibly strange out of context[2]. So I dedcided to strike back and try to encourage others to be topic'ed once in a while. This filk is to the tune of "Shake Your Tailfeather" by The Blues Brothers feat. Ray Charles from the film The Blues Brothers[3]. Here goes...

Point Your Topicfinger

Well I heard about the people you've been chattin' with,
All over the irc,
Well why didn't you chat to me baby?
And why d'you keep on topicing me?
Well I know that #afp is out of sight,
And the #icq's the thing tonight,
Well there's nothing to this topicing baby,
