A filk, based on Sixteen Tons as sung by Tenessee Ernie Ford

Some noders think that gods is made outta gel
Others say they're spawned in a censorship hell
But gods're made of toilin' and blood and fire
A will that's strong and a burnin' desire

You nuke sixteen nodes, what do you see?
A new pile of downvotes and a link to "Nazi"
But you keep right on shovelin' that crap away
E2's gonna be perfection someday

I logged on one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
I killed fifty write-ups 'fore the clock hit nine
I nuked a hundred nodeshells, took a break at ten
And then dem bones said "now, just do it again"

You nuke sixteen nodes, what do you see?
A new pile of downvotes and a link to "Nazi"
But you keep right on shovelin' that crap away
E2's gonna be perfection someday

I logged on one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
To a new bunch of insults bein' hurled at my name
But I was raised in the nodegel by Lord Brawl and dannye
Cain't no loud-mouthed troller make a weaklin' of me

You nuke sixteen nodes, what do you see?
A new pile of downvotes and a link to "Nazi"
But you keep right on shovelin' that crap away
E2's gonna be perfection someday

If you're nodin' drivel, better step aside
A lotta folks didn't, a lotta nodes died
The gods are made of iron, the editors steel
If the first lot don't get you, then the next one will

You nuke sixteen nodes, what do you see?
A new pile of downvotes and a link to "Nazi"
But you keep right on shovelin' that crap away
E2's gonna be perfection someday
