This week will be devoted to festivities, contests, and parades honouring Wikipedia. We'd like to take the time to show our lovely parody how much we appreciate her hard work and how much we respect what she does. We also think that Wikipedia Admins are underappreciated and deserve our praise and adoration. Please join us as we celebrate these noble workers of good.
Often the unsung heroes of Wikipedia, an Administrator is simply a Wikipedian who can access the few restricted Wikipedia software functions: deleting articles and uploaded files, protecting and unprotecting pages and blocking and unblocking IP addresses. They tend to be friendly folks that are willing to help you, if you post on their "talk page".
It's easy. First, you need a User Account. Then, make useful edits over a period of time. In this way, you prove to the community that you are here in good faith. After several months, a special CABAL meeting is arranged and selected Wikipedians, or friends of existing Administrators, are nominated, and after a fair and just consultation the User just may be Sysop'ed. Remember, be sure to use your new "powers" with caution!
Oh, Danny-boy... the pipes, the pipes are chiming...
From Glenn to Glenn, and rushing to the sea...
The... song... may sing... a song of... restitution.
And bring an end, to singing by the sea.--<<>> 21:34, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
He's our man!
If he can't block 'em, no one can!--<<>> 21:42, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

And your fourteen sockpuppets
Who you use
To edit the goat-fucking articles
And vote together on sciencecruft deletion
And use for flamewars arguing with yourself
Have just caused
The University of Iowa dorms
To be blocked for six months. And you should see the email from your sysadmin.

Night Dreams of the Infant Sysop
The average admin's a humorous bastard;
Drinks wine by himself and he posts when he's plastered.
At a quarter to three he's still pounding away
Instructing the newbies to "do like I say."
Editcount stuck on the edge of the screen,
He has an incentive to make sure he's seen.
He dreams that one day, as soon as he's able,
He'll be given the nod to be one of the cabal.
The boots and the cape make a peacock display,
Oh how he dreams of that glorious day!
Tiara in place, he rises, he speaks!
And kisses the GodKing on both of his cheeks.

Ballad of JayJG
Let me tell you all a story about a man named JayJG
Couldn't write an article without massive POV
Then one day he was reverting Palestine
When Jimbo comes along and says "ArbCom is mine"
(His that is - Mr. Wales. He owns the servers)
Next thing you know, old Jay is kicked upstairs
Some people complain, but see if Jimbo cares
He done his thing to get his crony on ArbCom
Skippin' the old way without even a nom
(Nomination that is - voting - democracy and all of that)
Next election comes around and Jay is on the slate
Looks like a sure thing, but just a sec and wait
Lotsa folks opposing him make his rank too low
So he's bailed out once again by his pal Jim-bo
(Wales, that is. Bomis porn sites. Hayek, Ayn Rand.
Y'all get lost now, y'here?) -- Applehead 06:53, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
