BALLAD OF DAN RATHER

(Sung to the tune from the Beverly Hillbillies)

Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Dan,

The documents were fake and he didn't give a damn;

He put 'em on the air, an' he thought he'd done the job,

But up from the web come a howlin' mob.

Blogs, that is.

Web logs.

Checkin' facts.

Well, the first thing you know ol' Dan's a-runnin' fast;

Made a false report an' it bit him in the ass;

He said 'dog-gonnit, I done thought I'd get away!'

But it turned out to be his a-reckonin' day.

Busted, that is.

Red-faced.

Mud in the eye.

Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Dan and all his men;

And they would like to shoot you folks for turnin' them in;

You're all invited back next week to watch the Evening News,

And see which correspondent's picked to fill Dan's empty shoes.

Y'all come back, now, hear?

That reminds me of the Lorena Bobbitt song
"Next thing you know there's a Ginsu by his side
And Lorena's in the car taking Willie for a ride"

Oh, but darlin', "Y'all come back now, heah?!?" is THE single most spoken phrase south of the Mason/Dixon.
What's so nice about it is that, MOST of the time, we actually mean it.

Bless your little heart, baby!
