That's Awful

Note to madfilkentist: I should mention more to you about the Milwaukee filk bunch of the late 1970s and early 1980s, but we'll see how that goes.

What the West Coast referred to as "showstoppers", the Milwaukee crew referred to as "awfuls". They were mini-filks of one kind or another, but usually painful.

Having listened to a lot of filk in the car yesterday, then more music when I was listening to The Tooles concert, the most god-awful mashup popped into my head when Julie wandered into the bedroom at a pre-dawn hour today. Hydraulic pressure probably helped catalyze these lyrics and I don't think it will take most of you long to figure out the tune:

Oh, for just one time, I will take the northwest piss tube
And watch with some amazement as Stan takes the other two,
Sending three warm lines through the tubes down to recycling
As I'm standing with Stan Long there in the loo.

(Apologizes to Stan Rogers and Joe Haldeman, ducks, and runs for cover.)
