The lights dim. A few minutes later they come back on. Then suddenly the theater is plunged into darkness. A lone violin is heard discordantly playing a long note, followed by the sounds of a lone violin being grabbed out of someone's hands and smashed against the floor of the orchestra pit. The curtain flies open violently, revealing the stage, bare except for a large set of hand-cut cardboard waves, painted various shades of blue. Inspiration, dressed in a Captain's outfit, strides to center stage, where ke stands, apparently in the middle of the rolling ocean.

INSPIRATION (sings): Oh I am a mod of the Sluggy Boards

RANDOM SLUGGITES (pop out from the wings): And a right good moderator too!

INSP: You are more-or-less good, and be it understood, I command an OK crew.

RS: We are very very good, and be it understood, you command --wait, who said anything about command?

INSP: Though not many of you can tell,
I know how to read and spell,
And take a boot to the head

It's not an ego trip
I've appeared in The Strip
And I never, never lock a thread!

RS. What, never?

INSP. No, never!

RS. What, never?

INSP. Well, Hardly ever!

RS. Ke hardly ever ever locks a thread
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the well read mod of the Sluggy Boards
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the mod of the Sluggy Boards

OOG: Ok I believe this is my first published filk on sluggy.net (although I've attempted several over the years) so please be gentle. I mean, rhyming bookerdash with aquarius? Really? Anyway, This is a rather obvious choice, but I am woefully unfamiliar with the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. (I don't think I've ever seen one of their operas. I haven't even read Booty Pirates of SLUGzance. For shame!)

On a technical note I'm open to suggestions about replacing "mistress" with something that isn't gendered or master even if Inspy preferred that.

Squeakymewmew emerges from the crowd of random sluggites, and walks to Down Center stage, while Inspy moves to Down Right. The random sluggites remain standing at Right Center and Left Center.

SQUEAKYMEWMEW: Inspy is the very model of a modern sluggy moderator
Sluggites all agree that ke's a very smooth operator
Ke's talented at filk, puns, poetry and bookerdash
Ke's in Padlock of DOOM and even surpassed Llefser's Aquarius
Though banned themes make ker quake and shake in real life
Ke'll execute a dst bunny with not lot of pain and strife.
Or is that thread possibly a reference to my under pants?
Kitoba, If you want old school style you should watch ker quote SLUGzance!

RANDOM SLUGGITES: Ke's mistress of all things literary
And ke'll quaff a varnish bloody mary
Just don't let ker in your closet,
For ke's the very model of a modern sluggy moderator!

Squeakymewmew returns to the crowd at the side, and an unnamed sluggite takes ker place.

UNNAMED SLUGGITE: Ke is a connoisseur of TheNewAuk's old WGARS rants
'Tis a mod's duty to read every thread though so it's not by chance.
Even other mods bow down because ke is S. C. Staff
Her famous love of feet of course is ker one big gaffe.
There is no denying that ke's quite a pal
Though I must point out that ke's married to that David L.
Yes it's true that we all hold ker in high regard
Kullervo, I'd be willing to bet she's even read ker Kirkegaard.

RS: Ke's mistress of all things literary
And ke'll quaff a varnish bloody mary
Just don't let ker in your closet,
For ke's the very model of a modern sluggy moderator!
