One request:

Please don't start a discussion here because the idea is just to listen and laugh (or not). Apparently everyone (upstairs) at Proz knows about this, so it only seems fair for all on the site to get a chance to hear it. It's very clever and deserves to be heard-it's in the spirit of the songs Tom Lehrer used to write.

It is the lighter side of things and being able to laugh about it could lighten the atmosphere a bit as well.

Those who don't like satire should click to another page -now.

Bravo Jul 16, 2006

It does remind of Tom Loehrer

Apropros, do any of you remember that classic about Werner Van Braun which had the line:

"Once the missiles go up who cares where they come down; that's not my department says Werner Van Braun.

Let's just say that I live in northern Israel....

too catchy for my sake Jul 18, 2006

I found myself humming this melody on the way to the grocery store today...and I've only listened to it twice! Definitely the markings of a genuine showZtopper
