In response to A Song For Prof. Butler, written by Stolzi on January 13, 1998 at 10:17:58
When I can read an essay writ by Butler without ROFLin'
When I can tell at sight a landed baron from a chap-a-lin,
When such affairs as soirees and assemblies I'm more easy in,
And when I sing Italian with pianoforte and violin;
When I know what progress has been made in dancing Regency,
When I know more of Colin than his physique seen from waist to knee,
In short when I've a smattering of couth 'n taste 'n dignity,
You'll say a better fan of Austen (Jane) was never seen than me!
