OK, I’m not a big literature or theater geek (but I make up for it in other geek areas) but when this song came over the feed from The FuMP I just about fell out of my chair laughing!
The song is a simply brilliant spoof on Shakespeare to the tune of Don McLean’s masterwork American Pie by the hilarious Robert Lund.
The lyrics are hilarious and wonderfully crafted. Here’s just a taste:
“So to be, or to choose not to be
That’s the question I’m digentin’ in my soliloquy
And when fortune aims it’s slings and arrows at me
Tell me how I’m going to live through act 3
Answer please iambic-ally”
Listen to the whole song, right here, right now, and check out The FuMP for more along these lines!
Unfortunately their site makes it nearly impossible to link directly to the video, but if you go to their morning news page you can find it in the Morning News Video section titled “Surfin’ the Net, My Cubicle Parody”.
The video is fairly boring, but somehow fits a song about how boring it is to work in cubicles. I’m not even sure the people in the video knew they were being shot.
Thanks to espressoshots (a reader) for commenting that this site made the news!
