So, what has a blogger to do
To become one of Time's timely few,
When their "Person," this year,
Is an Internet peer?
Seems they overlooked me and chose you!

The cover that could have been

Person of the Year: You
Yes, you. You control the Information Age.
Welcome to your world.

Determine the fate of Kanyevel ®,

To say Kanye's a creep
Who's intentions toward Evel were evil.

Kanye made me look evil - Knievel

Now that Bush has been labeled "the Menace?"

The new standard

In Cleveland we're jumping for joy
Now that Heisman belongs to our boy.
For most of those polled
This Buckeye was gold.
Now, all talents are measured on Troy.

He's Cleveland's man, OSU's man, Heisman

Knock, knock, knocking on Robert's door

The Senate would hold no debates
Before casting our lot with the Fates.
After Donald from Hell,
What's an easier sell
Than Heaven lies just beyond Gates?
