The Legend Lives On...

Today marks the 30th anniversary of a sinking that doesn't involve your money into an out-of-control black hole school district.

I am, of course, talking about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

To commemorate this somber event, and honor those mariners who parished that cold November evening, we reproduce for you below the Gordon Lightfoot classic, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Sing along if you remember the tune:

The legend lives on from the west side of town
Of the big lake they called Minnetonka
The Vikings, it's said, like to go and get head
When the bye in October comes early.

Wait a minute... That's not it.

OK, let's try this again:

The legend lives on from the Founders on down
Of the high court they called ‘the SCO-TUS’
The court it was said, was a co-equal branch
Until the Warren Court stuck it to us.

Oh for cryin' out loud! That's not it either.

Alright. Here's the correct version, I think:

The legend lives on from the MOB on down
Of the blog they call ‘The Kool-Aid Report
The blog it is said never lets moonbats live
When they write moron letters to duh Strib.

No no no no NO! Damn it.

[tapping fingers on desk]


There's something about "Gitchie Goomie" in there, I know...



And "some mill in Wisconsin," I'm pretty sure...
