The Very Model of a Pagan Intellectual

Nothing about Wikipedia in it, but Brendan Myers has a little fun with Gilbert and Sullivan: “I am the Very Model of a Pagan Intellectual.”

And if that does not make you chuckle, you need to acquaint yourself with the original, from HMS Pinafore.

Of course, rhyming “Wikipedia” would be a challenge.

  1. I have to find a set of words to rhyme with “Wikipedia”.
    I’ve searched my dictionaries and assorted online media;
    My straits are growing desperate, my needs are getting neediyah,
    To want more than these four lines? I can think of nothing greediyah.

    (For reasons that should be clear, I threw out “encyclopedia”…)

    We see him near. We see her there.
    We Pagans see them everywhere.
    Are they in circle? Are they of that ilk?
    Those demmed, elusive Pagan filks!

    A modest offering, for two voices (to the tune of “The Streets of Laredo”:

    “I see by your jewelry that you are a Pagan.”
    “I see by your jewelry that you’re a Pagan, too.”
    “We see by our jewelry that we are both Pagans.
    If you get some jewelry you can be a Pagan, too.”

    Could substitute “djembe,” “tee-shirt,” “tattoos,” “book shelf,” or the traditional “outfit” for “jewelry.” Thanks to the Smothers Brothers for inspiration. And the Gilbert and Sullivan version is a kick.
