Clanging Chimes of Doom


To atone for telling Ebola jokes I've pledged to mail a copy of the "We Are The World, We Are Ebola" song to anyone who (1) writes me a letter requesting it; and (2) is currently infected with Ebola.

Update: The deal is off, it turns out "We Are The World, We Are Ebola" is unavailable on vinyl, and vinyl is my preferred format for charity singles I mail to diseased strangers.

  1. Sorry to go off topic, my good Sir, but have you heard the terrible news about "World’s Largest Earwig" (http://newpsalmanazar.wordpress.com/2014/11/19/marginalia-no-344)

    1. Sad, they will be missed. Do earwigs ever actually go in people's ears? I think they've gotten a bad rap.

    1. And yet I don't receive the praise the singers who recorded the "We Are The World, We Are Ebola" song get. It all comes down to marketing, I guess.

  3. Doing good should be its own reward. You don't need praise.

  4. Both you Sir and the Earwig are sadly misunderstood and unappreciated by the General Public.

    1. It's even worse now because soundbites have replaced newspaper paragraphs.

    1. It amazes me earwigs stopping trains is an established fact, but it remains unclear if they actually go in ears.
