SurveyFail filk! NEEDS MORE VERSES, PEOPLE *hint*

So [personal profile] ithiliana over on LJ was asking who impudently dubbed this the PervySurveyFail. *raises hand reluctantly*

Oh, but she liked it! Well... in that case. *is inspired* Also, IZ NOT TL;DR TODAY, JUST BAD RHYME!

Remember Mother Goose and "Georgie-Porgie, pudding and pie"?

I give you:
"Pervy Ogi"

PervySurvy, Ogi and Sai,
Polled the fans but told a lie.
When they asked about the fail,
Pervy Ogi started to bail.
When the fangirls came to play
PervySurvy ran away.

There once was a man, name of Ogi,
Who along with a friend was a fogey.
Fandom thought they were pervy
Once they'd posted their survey
And told them quite loudly, "Nokey!"

(Yes, I know the last line is horrid.)

Other option: 'hoagie' reference.

But I really wanted the limerick to be cleaner than the source material, so...

If it were me, I'd go with "rogue-y." Rhyming nonce words are always good for a laugh.

I'm not familiar with that one, but here's one to Carole King's "Tapestry":

There once were these two researchers who thought they had a clue
A never-changing vision of an everlasting crew
A web of all desire they wanted to weave and hold
Stereotypes to feel and see, spelled out right there in bold.

Once, amid the internet, and sites to make you sigh
With plot lines, authorship and wit, the fannish nerds did cry,
"I do not fit your labels, and you are not on my side,
Your ignorance is willful, which I will not abide."

They moved with some uncertainty, as if they didn't know,
Just what they'd gotten into, or whether they should go.
Once, they reached for kindness, hoping for sympathy
But their words came off empty.

Soon, amid the internet, the acafen arrived
Querying their methods, and how they had derived
Their predetermined hypotheses, which did not work too well
No one wept to see them suffer, they'd ignited their own hell.

As fandom watched so cynically, they quickly disappeared
Abandoning their "research" and their new-begun careers
In times of deep despair, at least, we know they won't come back
Their "survey" lost them all their cred, we won't trust them with jack.
We won't trust them with jack....

(My extreme apologies to Don McLean and Weird Al)

My my this here 'researcher' guy
Wrote a pervy kinda survey
but his shame, it was nigh
And the fandom girls will laugh at him 'til they die
Saying "His theories we surely deny.
His theories we surely deny!"

Oh, you should see the bits I worked on after I logged off last night.

I must learn to keep my rhyming dictionary farther from my bed. I must also learn not to filk without access to the syllable counts of the original lyrics.

Already Linkspammed, but it deserves to be mentioned here because, well, hey, it's a filk: [personal profile] tablesaw asks "Ogi, Where's Your Trousers?"

Yeah, I gave into the urge last week, and I've been fighting off filk ever since ("Tom Bombadil" to "Come As You Are" might be—arrgh, stop it!).

I actually rejected another failk today, but that was just because it was too apt, there were no words that needed changing:
Do the new things you know
Bring you happiness now?
I don't know;
But I hope so.

If I've been unkind,
I hope you don't mind.
I don't know;
But I hope so.

The melody we hear,
The melody we fear,
Is only August's Ogas song.
The original can be heard on Myspace. I suppose I could do the second verse, but I'm in Vegas right now, so it'll have to wait.
