An Ode to SOPA/PIPA

In honor of Official SOPA/PIPA Blackout Day, I thought I’d bastardize some well-known song lyrics.

(To the tune of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”)
(As if I had to tell you. This is the freaking internet!)

We’re no strangers to the web
You know the rules and so do I
But heavy fines are what you’re thinking of
Kill the whole internet to save some copyrights
I just wanna tell you how I’m feeling
Gotta make you understand

SOPA’s gonna mess us up
PIPA’s gonna let us down
How it works, you haven’t got a clue
Only gonna make us cry
As ROFLRazzi says goodbye
Fill our DNS with lies to wade through

We’ve been online now for so long
Your wallet’s bulging from the
Kickbacks you’ve been taking
Inside we both know what’s been going on
Your greed and bigotry has us shaking
And if you ask me how I’m feeling
Don’t tell me you’re too blind to see

SOPA’s gonna mess us up
PIPA’s gonna let us down
Won’t even bring in experts to argue
Only gonna make us cry
As Memebase says goodbye
Fill our DNS with lies to wade through

SOPA’s gonna mess us up
PIPA’s gonna let us down
No more parodied episodes of “Kung Fu”
Only gonna make us cry
As YouTube says goodbye
Fill our DNS with lies to wade through

(Ooh, mess us up)
(Ooh, mess us up)
(Ooh)
SOPA’S gonna mess, PIPA’s gonna mess
(Mess us up)
(Ooh)
SOPA’S gonna mess, PIPA’s gonna mess
(Mess us up)

We’ve been online now for so long
You laugh at YouTube vids but
You’re too shy to say it
Inside we both know what’s been going on
We know the game and we’re gonna play it

I just wanna tell you how I’m feeling
Gotta make you understand

SOPA’s gonna mess us up
PIPA’s gonna let us down
How it works, you haven’t got a clue
Only gonna make us cry
As YouTube says goodbye
Fill our DNS with lies to wade through

SOPA’s gonna mess us up
PIPA’s gonna let us down
Won’t even bring in experts to argue
Only gonna make us cry
As YouTube says goodbye
Fill our DNS with lies to wade through

SOPA’s gonna mess us up
PIPA’s gonna let us down
Won’t even bring in experts to argue
Only gonna make us cry
As YouTube says goodbye
Fill our DNS with lies to wade through

Seriously though, SOPA and PIPA both are poorly worded and will do more damage than good to the internet as a whole. Take a minute to write your representatives here if you’re a U.S. citizen and ask them to oppose SOPA and PIPA.
