... I am the slave of doody.

You may be interested - nay, fascinated - to learn that I have just been granted posting privileges at the humorous list-based blog lists(dq). You can all rush over there immediately to read my hilaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarious first post:

Lines from The Pirates of Penzance That Would Be Funnier If The Word “duty” Were Changed to “doody”

It is a very mature and thought-provoking topic, and unfortunately I am also pretty sure that it marks the apex of my career as a humorous list-maker. It will all be downhill from here, folks! Many thanks to Alfie, who laughed with me in the car on the way home from seeing Pirates last weekend and inspired me to accept Chad's invitation.

As an special bonus to srah blah blah readers, I give you an addendum to that list:

Lines About Duty From Other Gilbert and Sullivan Productions That Are Not Quite As Obsessed With Duty as The Pirates of Penzance Is, But Still Talk About Duty A Fair Amount

  • Hail, hail! gallant gondolieri, ben venuti!/ Ben' venuti!/ Accept our love, our homage, and our duty.
  • Oh, philosophers may sing/ Of the troubles of a King,/ But of pleasures there are many and of worries there are none;/ And the culminating pleasure/ That we treasure beyond measure/ Is the gratifying feeling that our duty has been done!
  • We sail the ocean blue,/ And our saucy ship's a beauty;/ We're sober men and true,/ And attentive to our duty.
  • For duty, duty must be done;/ The rule applies to every one,/ And painful though that duty be,/ To shirk the task were fiddle-de-dee!

I'd like you to know I was watching TV last night and on one of the shows they kept saying "duty" and all I could think of was you and your doody. Thanks.

Now everytime I see the word "duty" I think of you and can't read it correctly.
