Yes, indeed. The slow escalation of Strange is so very impressive. By S5, detonating a hydrogen bomb to achieve time-travel really does not seem a stretch. Thanks for commenting!

A concise, accurate, and funny as h*ll summing up of the 5th season--and it is quite scary to realize how much bizarre it now takes to seem odd on this show. I'm embarrassed to admit, though, that although it demands to be sung, I can't work out which tune it should be sung to. *Hangs head in shame.*

Many thanks! I am delighted that you enjoyed it.

The tune I had in mind was "One Man Went To Mow". Here is a version of the original (although when we sang it in my youth there was less percussion):

As you will see, the later entries in my version are expanded from the simple "Four Men, Three Men, Two Men..." pattern of the original, but it was traditional when I was a kid to allow longer insertions as long as they retained the rhythm of the original.

Thanks again!

Thank YOU for giving me the tune! I somehow escaped learning that one, but now it will forever be associated with a geek and his nuke, plus a crowd of identical twins trying to mow a suspiciously-short meadow with lawnmowers (the cattle aren't going to be impressed with your hay, boys).

I see what you mean about the extra words fitting in as long as they follow the rhythm--I can almost hear the band drop out and leave just the drum to accent the syllables, and then come back in when the chorus resumes. *Exeunt, singing*

Exactly.

Thanks again! That is a splendid icon, by the way.

I'm glad you like the icon, but I should give credit to Will Manley for the idea. His article "The Truth About Catalogers" in American Libraries back in the day claimed that as the second-favorite epitaph among catalogers. If I were better at graphics, you would be able to read it better, but I'm still learning how to use all this stuff.

Happy Thanksgiving (in the US) or Happy Thursday (outside it)!
