In a discussion of Needs More Wanger on ARK, Stacia (author of the Pigskin Loofah lyrics) wrote:

    I have no comment on "[[Pigskin Loofah]]", because I am still horrified that people used their mighty musical talents on lyrics so spectacularly lame. They could have been doing something useful, like playing solitaire, or planting geraniums, instead. 

Doctroid liked that last sentence and responded with lyrics for a song called "Planting Geraniums". Stacia responded

             _________________

which, coming from Stacia, is probably high praise.

"I think I was aiming for something that, while not punk, at least had some of that old countercultural angst to it. Tongue not entirely in cheek, though not entirely out either." -- Doctroid

Planting Geraniums lyrics by Doctroid Doctroid Holmes

They all irritate me Talking on their folding cell phones Instant message from the back row And they aren't really here

They all irritate me With their precious little theories Make us happy little robots All with happy self esteem

   And they could have been
   Doing something useful
   Doing something useful
   Planting geraniums

They annoy me now Driving like they're crazy Cross the double yellow Just to stop first at the light

They annoy me now Standing clapping at the concerts Yelling when I'm trying to listen To the guys up on the stage

   And they could have been
   Doing something useful
   Doing something useful
   Planting geraniums

They're all criminals Bleeding dry the corporation Hiding in corrupt accounting You won't take your pension home

They're all criminals All their lies and their hypocrisy Amend the constitution Just to win one in the fall

   And they could have been
   Doing something useful
   Doing something useful
   Planting geraniums
