Poe would do no such thing. He is not of this century.

And my own rendition:

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
After studying, bored as always, I then secured all the doorways,
Just to fetch my fav`rite porn mag hidden under my chess board.
`I`ll just peep`, I promised hastly, `Just one peep just one before -
I`ll get some sleep, nothing more.`

Ah, never did I quite remember, the beauty of Miss December
How did she awake my member, made it aware what it`s for.
Eagerly I pictured naked every girl I ever dated
`Till I almost came and fainted as I couldn`t cope with more -
For the girls of centerfold could not amuse me anymore -
I`m in love with rough hardcore.

Pretty funny, but I still prefer:

Once upon a midnight dreary,
while I websurfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurious website of hot chicks galore,
While I clicked my fav’rite bookmark,
suddenly there came a warning,
And my heart was filled with mourning,
mourning for my dear amour.
‘Tis not possible, I muttered,
give me back my cheap hardcore! —
Quoth the server, “404″.

@Davymid: I concur regarding Kitteh. She`s amazing. In fact, I recently wrote an ode in her honor, which I`ll repost now for your enjoyment (and her embarrassment).

~Squrlz fumbles for a folded piece of paper in his vest pocket and tests the microphone~

Ode to Kitteh9lives

O fair Kitteh, who surfs the electronic aether,
Bringing us untold, strange WTF peculiarities
From which we cannot avert our gaze--
Come, lay down by this furry creature`s side.
Safe in our little white oak hollow,
Buxom feline and fluffy tree rodent,
Together, surfing the interwebs,
Chuckling at bizarre shtuff
Whilst the winter winds outside howl.

~Squrlz bows dramatically and scurries offstage~

@Squrlz - No, I haven`t read The Selfish Gene, though I am aware that the word meme comes from what roughly translates as "something imitated."

For that reason EAP`s original Raven is a meme. The content of your post, all other merits aside, is not a meme.

Please understand I didn`t mean my comment personally - I didn`t even register who had posted it. It was a snap reaction to what I perceived as misuse of a word.

As much as I`d love to take a bow, your praise should be directed to Kitteh9lives. She basically keeps this site running, on her own dime, for free, by loading us up with great content. She`s the one that trawls through the submitted links every day and picks out the good stuff, and yet she`s humble on the forums and hardly says a word. Thanks Kitteh!

Good stuff Squrlz4Sale, keep it coming and don`t mind the haters. Haters gonna hate, as they say. You learn to grow a thick skin after a while. Try being an IAB Mod someday - it starts off with elation (yay! I`m a Mod!), quickly turning to extreme depression (F*ck, that submission I approved was posted a week ago, and now I`m getting flamed in the comments for a repost, and rightfully so), and then it turns into a very thick skin after a couple of weeks (f*ck it, let`s just get on with the job). Kitteh will know exactly what I mean, we`ve all been through it.

A site like I-A-B (and many others like it) live or die on the quality and quantity of user-submitted content. Keep it coming, fellow I-A-Bers!

Just know that your helpful submissions are being filtered through a collection of functionally retarded individuals (like me and Kitteh, and, well basically all of us), and that we sometimes f*ck sh*t up. Keep it coming, and we`ll keep I-A-B trucking.

Don`t let all the asshats get you down. You can`t please everyone all of the time.
You contributed to the site, it helps us out, be happy.
P.S. Never sweat the small stuff. Everyone misspells something sometime in their life. Just look at Madest...amirite? JKLOL

@Kitteh: My apologies. I`m sorry--I really didn`t think I`d done that! ~Squrlz hangs head in shame~

Thank you for the correction, Kitteh. And I`m glad you liked it. :)

@QueenZira and Zanki: Thanks you two. I really appreciate it. I just know that meme made me LOL when I saw it, especially the aviator sunglasses.

Update on the misspelled middle name: I`ll e-mail the mods to see if they can correct it. I revere Edgar and owe him that much.

@razbitom: Uggh. Way to kill a joke with overanalysis that is, I suppose, intended to impress.

I studied for my master`s in American lit at the University of Virginia, and paid several visits to the room Poe lived in when he was a student there. That room on the UVA Lawn is probably the setting for the poem.

I didn`t put this meme together, I simply found it online. But I think it`s hilarious--sorry you did not.

Fail right from the beginning.

It`s Edgar ALLAN Poe.

If you`re going to insult one of the all-time greats for a cheap bro joke, at least have the decency to spell the man`s name correctly.

Troglodyte.

but it was a bird tapping and it was at the window, not the door. the girl in question was dead, though the protagonist seemed belaboured by the hopeful belief she might, beyond all reason, come back.
and really if anyone were ever clingy it`s certainly the speaker in the poem, not the lost lenore. he`s the one obsessing over her.

sorry.

@Swash: Funny, I`m thinking the same thing about you. Have you ever read Dawkins` *The Selfish Gene*, where the word was coined?
