In honor of the EU’s horrific “Article 11” and “Article 13” — In the hope that they don’t pass, and that these lyrics don’t come to pass as reality.

“The EU’s (Internet) Island”
(To the tune of “Gilligan’s Island”)
Lauren Weinstein – 11 September 2018
Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip.
When the EU tried to wreck the Net,
And just sunk their own sad ship.
Their ideas were a link tax few would pay,
And content censorship tools.
So the EU voted to proceed,
With a plan made by fools,
A plan made by fools!
(Lightning and Thunder!)
It didn’t work out like they hoped,
The world cut the EU off.
Fake claims filled the content filters fast,
And EU users were lost,
The EU users were lost!
Now the EU’s been chopped from the Net,
Like a lonely desert isle.
And Brussels too,
And yes Strasbourg!
The Hague as well,
And the rest,
Are here on the EU’s Isle!
