After this week's FCC ruling ending Net Neutrality, Twitter users barraged Eric Idle for him to update his song. And -- to most people's shock -- he not only replied directly to many of them...but obligingly added a new verse!
Here's the original song, for those of you who don't know it, followed by the words he posted on his website. Again, the language here is not for the faint of heart.
And that brought about his tweet this morning that brought about tremendous surprise and probably even greater joy to his fans --
As I noted, he posted the lyrics for the new verse on his website. They go --
Fuck you very much the FCC
For kindly ending net neutrality
The Country’s in the toilet
Now that Putin took a dump
All over your democracy
And left you all with Trump
So a bunch of greedy bastards
Can steal everything they see
Fuck you very much the FCC.
