    Wayne Tempus faciendi, Domine.

    Simply brilliant. One wonders if he took away greatly from his studies . . .


    The composer/artist/scholar appears to be a TEDS graduate. He then went to the UK for grad work. Can't find what's happened to him since.

    The video was something he posted to his blog back in 2011 and it has been sitting there all this time and is only now in circulation in our larger circles.

    What about Nebuchadnezzar's Nightmare Song ("When you're lying awake with a dismal headache and repose is tabooed by anxiety...")?

    Sorry about this but G&S get me going (if you only knew what I've resisted posting!).

    I was surprised that the word "Pseudopigrapha" didn't feature.

    To be true to the G&S original, the last verse needs to go into failings ... "When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery."
