The Lyrics

If there's one blog that you ought to read
Among all others read
Among your habits reading blogs
On the Information Stuporbahn,
There's one, eclectic as it gets,
With a touch of bombast, too;
"The Exaggerator" 'tis its name,
And comment its claim to fame....

You may recall the 'toon prequel
"A Pup Named Scooby-Doo,"
And its frequently referring to
A supermart tabloid
By name and stylee known as The
National Exaggerator;
And, no doubt, that inspired the name
Of this particular blog!

Its opinions are in free form
And for free-thinking types,
As well as the open-minded, too,
All to scare the wits out
Of Zealots and True Believers in
Neo-Conservative thought
And other threats to liberty
And our own soverignty....

Because its blogger is, himself,
On disability,
And said benefits can only go
So far with each new month,
He has online shopping thereon
To suppment the income;
He'd appreciate your online trade
Because he can't quite stand scams!!

In any case, why not make time
For the bombastic sort
Of satirically-inclined blogging
"The Exaggerator" hath?
You'll get a kick out of reading same,
And, if not careful,
Maybe learn something in the end
All thanks to this kind of blog!!
Here's where the blog in quesion is found online ... and, if you prefer, its RSS feed as well.
