Computer Science/Graduate School Parody Lyrics
In my old department, UW CSE, we held a holiday party every year. (You
can scan through the UW
CSE departmental history site to learn more.) Every year the
graduate students put together a holiday party skit which includes
parodies of well-known songs. I actually co-wrote two years' skits
but perhaps my proudest creations are parody song lyrics.
I plan to keep up the tradition, inspired by the Great Quux's example,
and have already co-authored a planned three-part series of songs
commenting on the tripartite duties of a faculty member. Now what? (What's
next turns out to be two children and an 8-9 year hiatus, followed by a parody
about quicksort. When I get older, I will have more time to write parody lyrics.)
Enjoy! Reuse! Modify! Correctly attribute authorship!
Many thanks to my numerous co-conspirators for assistance,
inspiration, scansion help, and laughs.
