    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Less of a eulogy, more of a spiteful elegy. I've got the tune of Apu's 'Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart' from The Simpsons from somewhere, so I'm going with that

    We're gathered here today to mourn the passing of a friend
    One who didn't know his life was at an end
    I know we all have memories of the way he lived his life
    Up and down, in and out riddled with trouble and strife

    When he first appeared he was right as rain
    A misplaced bracket was all his pain
    But offense was taken on innocent words
    Turning his heart from gold to turd
    Order lost to the Indian name
    As the forum played the Turbo C game
    Insults left, front, right and centre
    VirtualAce's response was the only winner

    Who needs that stinking thread?
    Now that it's stone cold dead
    Isn't it always the way
    Who need that stinking thread?
    Now that the OP's fled
    Just because he misread
    Thought we'd called him a dunderhead
    Left the answer totally unread

    Who needs that stinking thread?
    Not me
    Good riddance now it's dead
    There's nothing left unsaid
    Off to something else instead
    Who needs that stinking thread?
    Not me

    Oh that's so... I'm so... that's beautiful!

    Oh my god! Please bring it back! Whyyyyyy?


    Yes. I need somewhere to calm down from my grief. At whose place will we be gathering after this? Whose bringing the beers? Is Laserlight going to bring his cute workmate?
