    Fight Song for the Men of LitNet
    by mono

    Kindly, gentlemen, of the LitNet, lend me your ears,
    Even you, our Creator Admin, and hold up your beers,
    For a time has come that we keep our thread alive,
    And we, the men of LitNet, will surely survive!

    Come Atheist, Virgil, JBI, Brian, and kilted alike,
    And bazarov, and Silas, and Taliesen, we can do as we like,
    And we can speak in masculine tones that we connive,
    For we, the men of LitNet, shall certainly survive!

    Come skib, Lokasenna, and crisaor we cannot forget,
    And Comedian and Aimus, we can do like we shall never regret,
    And librarius and NikolaiI, let us make this our testosterone hive,
    Since we, the men of LitNet, can definitely survive!

    In other places, we can speak of literature and poetry,
    Or of religion, or quotations, and even philosophy;
    Here we may collect and let our manlyhood drive,
    Hence we, the men of LitNet, do indeed survive!

    Let us roar, and boast, and brag of sounds from our orfices,
    And fantasize of secretaries working in our offices,
    Since our endowed competitiveness cannot let this thread dive,
    Because we, the men of LitNet, are to survive!

    We can argue and parade of our various sports,
    And leave the women to volleyball and tennis courts,
    Yet as the very best we can always strive,
    But we, the men of LitNet, come here to survive!

    So hold up your ales, your lagers, and I’ll have my porter,
    Since among we men, we can have no hoarder;
    Bless us with a “Cheers!” as we have brought this to life,
    For we, the men of LitNet, will of course survive!

    Pffft I know some of you boys drink girly cocktails.

    Very impressive poem mono, however it seems you feel oppressed by our female presence? Or perhaps--threatened?

    If you have to ask, you're not too familiar with men.

    This thread is a ball of laughs.

    Nah, not at all!
    If I ever ended up as one of the members of the Little Rascals, I would have seemed more like Alfalfa than Spanky, Buckwheat, or Stymie - the one who still has an affinity for women, despite co-owning the "He-Man Woman Haters Club."

    Chuck Norris?

    We're men, not neaderthals!
    Go to work, get married, have some kids, pay your taxes, pay your bills, watch your tv, follow fashion, act normal, obey the law and repeat after me: "I am free."

    Chuck Norris really died fifty years ago, but the Grim Reaper is too scared to tell him . . .
    sorry. I couldn't resist!


    I must say, though, Mrs. Higley has it down pretty close to pat. Kudos! You are close to understanding a mans purpose in life.

    Oh good!
    I can remove my foot from my mouth now.
    Now, gentlemen. What other topic of extraordinary manliness shall we discuss?
    1)the hair on our chests
    2) our manly vehicle
    3) our bench-press maximum
    4) our . . . )think of something manly)
    5) . . . .
