 From a radio sketch comedy show over in Oz some years ago, after
suggesting that Greenpeace release a CD of sea shanties as a
fundraising idea:

    The Rainbow Warrior was our finest boat
        (Hey, ho! Blow the ship up!)
    But the French were determined that she would not float
        (Hey, ho! Blow the ship up!)

    These criminals must pay for their dastardly crime
        (Hey, ho! Lock the frogs up!)
    But two years in Club Med isn't exactly hard time...

I have no idea what relevance that has, I'm just flabbergasted that
I remember it verbatim after hearing it once, and once only, what
must be by my estimation over 10 years ago.

The mind is a funny thing.
