No Quarter

Excuse me, but *I* had to listen to the whole song, ya know, to make sure things didn't get weird or anything. [Okay, yes, I admit, "weird" would apply to the Nickname Song chorus sung by that high-pitched guy in the ___ tee. I meant weird like obscene or kinky weird.] The point is, as the song's poster, I felt I had a *duty* to listen straight through to the end. You, on the other hand, listened to the whole thing of your own free will? I mean, even after a line like this? "Before I get things started, I'll keep it real. I don't have a nickname. My name is just Neil." That's at the 0:30 mark. That's all I could be held responsible for, so let's see, at your stated rate, that'd just be about a quarter--- Wait! Forget it! No quarter! With a word game specifically designed for literary snobs, this is all the fault of whoever used NARC!
