I received this several years ago, and thought I'd share it with everyone to
try to lighten things up a little.  (Seems we're getting a little testy
lately, both in our replies and our responses.  It seems to me that if
someone steps out of line a little, or sends something to HistoNet by
mistake, they don't need to be bombarded by everyone for days at a time.)

Unfortunately, it was sent to me author unknown, but it is a real gem.  I
hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

I Shot A Query Into the Net

I shot a query into the net.
I haven't got an answer yet,
But seven people gave me hell
And said I ought to learn to spell;

A posted message called me rotten
For ignoring mail I'd never gotten;
An angry message asked me "Please,
Don't send such drivel overseas";

A lawyer sent me private mail
And swore he'd slap my butt in jail--
I'd mentioned Un*x in my gem
And failed to add the T and M;

One netter thought it was a hoax:
"Hereafter, post to net dot jokes!";
Another called my grammar vile
And criticized my writing style.

Each day I scan the subject lines
And hope the topic will be mine;
I shot a query into the net.
I haven't got an answer yet...

(As I said above, this is NOT my writing!!)
