Oh, horrible! Catastrophe appalling!

Since today is Leap Day, I'd say it's about time for another one of these.

    srah

Universal!

    Universal Pictures
Who calls?
    srah
Your favorite blogger!
    srah blah blah
And I, her little blog!
    Universal Pictures
Oh, mad intruders,
How dare ye face me?
Know ye not, oh rash ones,
That I have doomed you to a life of boredom?
    srah
Have mercy on us! Hear us, ere you bore us!
    Universal Pictures
I do not think I ought to listen to you.
Yet, you are the greatest blog and blogger ever,
And so I will be merciful – say on!
    srah blah blah
You may remember months ago,
We sent you word about this flick
According to our custom old,
This music style we picked.
But all in vain the email sent,
We still have got this movie yen,
Until to somebody occurred
To blog it all again.
    Universal Pictures
Blog it again?
    srah blah blah
Blog it again,
Ingeniously we'll blog again
Nothing to lose and all to gain
And so we'll blog it all again.
    All
We'll blog again, we'll blog again,
Ingeniously we'll blog again
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
We'll blog again.
    srah
You know our taste for curious quips,
For cranks and contradictions queer;
And yet you don't release this film,
We want our friends to see.
We said, "If we could show it them,
How our friends would the film adore!"
And so we write another post
To tell you a bit more.
    Universal Pictures
You'll blog again?
    srah
Blog it again,
Ingeniously we'll blog again
Nothing to lose and all to gain
And so we'll blog it all again.
    All
We'll blog again, we'll blog again,
Ingeniously we'll blog again
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
We'll blog again.
    srah
For some ridiculous reason, to which, however, I've no desire to be a snitcher,
Some person in authority, I don't know who, very likely Universal Pictures,
Has decided that, although for such a beastly film as Bring It On IV, a DVD release is needed,
One film in all these thousands is ignored and sadly goes unDVD-ded.
Through some singular coincidence - I shouldn't be surprised if it were owing to the agency of an ill-natured fairy -
I am the victim of this clumsy arrangement, wishing to watch it in leap-year, on the twenty-ninth of February;
And so, if you look at the Universal catalogue, you'll surely look askance,
For though they've released Barbie as the Island Princess, yet they've never released the delightful The Pirates of Penzance!
    srah & srah blah blah
Ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!
Ho! ho! ho! ho!
    Universal Pictures
Dear me!
Let's see!
Yes, yes; with you my catalogue agrees!
    srah & srah blah blah
Ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!
    Universal Pictures
How quaint the ways of Sarah's blog!
Skip one film in the catalogue
And she writes in just to complain
Perhaps we should release it, see
Yes, we've decided now to deign,
Yes, we've decided now to deign,
To put it out on DVD!
    srah & srah blah blah
They'll put it out on DVD!
    All
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
We blogged again, we blogged again.
Ingeniously we blogged again.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
We blogged again.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Hooray, we blogged again!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Good thing that we have blogged again!

Unfortunately this is only wishful thinking!

And for anyone who would like to sing along or is wondering what this has to do with Leap Day...

Oh my God. Brilliance! I think this may be the first blog post to ever get stuck in my head...

I am confused. And dancing. And confused about that as well.

These are the least tough pirates ever.

Yes. And also the best.

They also drink sherry, sing an ode to Poetry, long for marriage and domesticity, are loud and boisterous when they're supposed to be quiet and sneaky, and have several loopholes in their piracy rules that result in them being terrible pirates:

King. Well, Frederic, if you conscientiously feel that it is your duty to destroy us, we cannot blame you for acting on that conviction. Always act in accordance with the dictates of your conscience, my boy, and chance the consequences.

Samuel. Besides, we can offer you but little temptation to remain with us. We don’t seem to make piracy pay. I’m sure I don’t know why, but we don’t.

Frederic. I know why, but, alas! I mustn’t tell you; it wouldn’t be right.

King. Why not, my boy? It’s only half-past eleven, and you are one of us until the clock strikes twelve.

Samuel. True, and until then you are bound to protect our interests.

All. Hear, hear!

Frederic. Well, then, it is my duty, as a pirate, to tell you that you are too tender-hearted. For instance, you make a point of never attacking a weaker party than yourselves, and when you attack a stronger party you invariably get thrashed.

King. There is some truth in that.

Frederic. Then, again, you make a point of never molesting an orphan!

Samuel. Of course: we are orphans ourselves, and know what it is.

Frederic. Yes, but it has got about, and what is the consequence? Every one we capture says he’s an orphan. The last three ships we took proved to be manned entirely by orphans, and so we had to let them go. One would think that Great Britain’s mercantile navy was recruited solely from her orphan asylums – which we know is not the case.

Samuel. But, hang it all! you wouldn’t have us absolutely merciless?

Frederic. There’s my difficulty; until twelve o’clock I would, after twelve I wouldn’t. Was ever a man placed in so delicate a situation?
