I don’t know what it is about this song, but it seems to inspire the greatest living sardonicists to greater achievements in sheer over-the-topitude than have ever been seen this side of Kadath Through The Looking-Glass.
First there was Kiki and Herb‘s heartrending story of transgendered love gone awry and tragic loss.
