Not laugh out loud funny, but pretty well done. I just sent it on to the four biblical philologists in my life.

Almost better than this one for me. I posted the philologist link for my two historian friends, one of whom I may have beaten to it.

See, I knew that there were people out there who just had to see this, I just didn't know where they were. But I guessed that MetaFilter would know.

Good golly, how did I not notice until just now that -- speaking of philologists -- Tolkien's Errantry fits Modern Major-General perfectly? And so, I guess, would Eärendil Was a Mariner.

It's nice to hear the borderline silliness of Gilbert & Sullivan put to such good use. Clever!
