He has done his duty. I will do mine. Go ye and do yours.

The movie version of The Pirates of Penzance is now available on DVD, thanks solely (I'm assuming) to my efforts to publicize the shameful oversight. However, despite my enormous triumph, I find that I can't entirely enjoy this joyful occasion because it means that I don't get to write any more Gilbert and Sullivan parodies complaining about it.

Allow me to tell you about it... in song.

To the tune of: When the Foeman Bares His Steel - The Pirates of Penzance

    srah (backed by a chorus of dancing policemen?)

Now that Pirates is released, (Tarantara! Tarantara!)
This here blog had better cease, (Tarantara!)
For there's little left to say, (Tarantara! Tarantara!)
On this Talk Like Pirates Day, (Tarantara!)

For our dreams have all come true, (Tarantara! Tarantara!)
And there's little left to do, (Tarantara!)
Now the DVD is out, all the Pirates fans will shout,
All the Pirates fans will shout:
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Tarantara, ra, ra,
Tarantara!

Go, ye now and place your orders,
Visit B and N or Borders
Drive your car not back, but forwards,
Go and buy your DVDs!

Go to Amazon or Ebay,
Overnight it or wait two days,
You can get it any old way,
Go, ye viewers, go and buy!

    Chorus of Universal Executives

Go, ye viewers, go and buy!
Go, ye viewers, go and buy!

    srah

Though to me it's evident,
Tarantara! Tarantara!
This excitement is well-meant,
Tarantara!
Such expressions don't appear,
Tarantara! Tarantara!
Calculated me to cheer,
Tarantara!
Whose blog's content is now moot
And who needs a new pursuit.
Tarantara! Tarantara! Tarantara!
Still to me it's evident
This excitement is well-meant.
Tarantara! Tarantara! Tarantara!

    Alfie

Go and hold some viewing parties,
Make new fans of all your hearties!
They will like it if they're smarties,
Show them all your DVD!

    Chorus of Universal Executives

Show them all your DVD!
(Though we'd rather that they bought 'em
If you pirate you'll be foughten
Yes, alright, that pun was rotten,
And not worth the made-up word)

    srah

I observe that you are thrilled,
And that I should feel fulfilled,
But I'm just a bit aggrieved
That my wish has been achieved.
For that means I must reroute
All I usually blog about
I must find a new pursuit
Since my content is now moot

    Alfie and Universal Executives

Yes perhaps you should reroute
All you usually blog about
And should find a new pursuit
Since your content is now moot.

    srah

Yes, I need a new pursuit
Since my content is now moot
New pursuit
Content's moot
New pursuit
The content's moot!

    Alfie

Go, ye now and place your orders,
Visit B and N or Borders
Drive your car not back, but forwards,
Go and buy your DVDs!

Go to Amazon or Ebay,
Overnight it or wait two days,
You can get it any old way,
Go, ye viewers, go and buy!

Go ye viewers, go to Amazon and buy
Go ye viewers, go to Amazon and buy
Visit B and N or Borders
Drive your car not back, but forwards,
Go to Amazon and buy!
