Nonsense and Some Sense Verse Smackdown, Musical Intermission
According to Parkinson's Law, work expands to fill the time available for it. According to Enbrethiliel's Law, blogging work expands whether you and time like it or not. And editing other people's verse is very expansive work. So while I give myself another week to put the "Funny Four" together, here is another face-off to tide you over.
Noel Coward vs. Cole Porter
If you were around for the "Weird Al" Yankovic Song Smackdown, then you know that there are a lot of funny verses to be found in song. Cole Porter is probably the best lyricist American English has ever known, while the British Noel Coward spread his humourous writing more widely over different literary forms. (By the way, can you guess, without listening, which featured song mentions the Philippines?)
The winner of last week's face-off, with 75% of the vote (which sounds so impressive until you actually count the votes =P) is Louisa May "Queen of My Tub" Alcott!
