Greg Clow posted this earlier in the month. (I don't know if he made it up or heard it somewhere.)

There was a composer named Glass
Philip Glass Philip Glass Philip Glass
Philip Glass Philip Glass
Philip Glass Philip Glass
Philip Glass Philip Glass Philip Glass

(I even prefer it to the knock-knock joke.)

And with that, good riddance to February.

Imagine a Comments thread from February Zoilus that kept getting new posts, through March and April, all the way into summer. February 28th into summer. That might give a little feeling of Philipian Glassian infinity.

Philip Glass motif to be used in commercials for household items. Example:

(low, staccato voices)
Dir-ty dish-es dir-ty dish-es dir-ty dish-es

(repeat for several cycles)

(lone, shrill upper register voice, double-timed)
Lemon Iv'ry Lemon Iv'ry Lemon Iv'ry

(repeat for 30 second spot)

Here's a variation:

He wanted to fill up his glass:
"Philip Glass, Philip Glass, Philip Glass,
Philip Glass, Philip Glass,
Philip Glass; Philip Glass;
Philip Glass! Philip Glass! Philip Glass!"

I once spent an hour or so (I think it was the fall of '89, in a basement in Winnipeg) writing "Is Philip Glass popular? Why is Philip Glass so popular?" over and over in my notebook until I was satisfied. Making it a limerick would have saved me some time.
