Oh we never took it
No, we ain't never took it
Oh we persist in our refusal to take it
Nevermore!

We've had the right to choose it
There weren't no way we'd lose it
This is still our life, this is still our song

Now you've got me wanting to "write" the rest of these songs' lyrics.

Pretty sure that's from one of my very favorite websites, McSweeney's Lists.

Well, yes, and yes. The ultimate link that triple points to is John Moe. And the submitter of that list to McSweeney's is John Moe.

So, it's not entirely unlike citing an Isaac Asimov story as being attributed to Asimov, and then having someone point out that it also appeared in the New Yorker.

attribution retribution tribulations

I do pride myself on proper attribution, to the point that I'll usually cross-reference with a google search to make sure the existing chain of citations is accurate before I'll refer to it myself. It's not often done in personal web publishing such as journals and blogs. There was a good study done on that recently; someone be a pal and google the link to it for us.

I'm actively looking for tools that make attribution easier.

Incidentally, here's the link to the piece as it also appears in McSweeney's: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/lists/onehit.html

That 'lists' conceit is pretty awesome, nobodobodon, thanks for pointing to it. McSweeney's has that tasty Onion-flavored dry humor to it; you can't eat just one, but after a bag-full you get thirsty.
