You leave a place, you lose touch. But hey, that’s what the people left behind are for. And besides, being late doesn’t make “Lazy Muncie” any less amusing.
Not recommended for dial-up. Brief profanity, more than leavened by humor.
(My favorite was the khakis-and-blazer. Yours?)

I don’t know. It’s tough to beat the original–so crazy delicious!

Loved it. It took me back to 1997, when I was sent up to Green Bay to cover “Packermania.” Folks up there had come up with the usual array of bad parody songs celebrating the team (the worst: The Packerayna), most of them lame at best. One was positively brilliant, though. It was produced by three kids from Neenah. Wisconsin, a town much like Muncie. It was a parody of “I’m a Loser” as in “I’m a Loser baby, so why don’t you kill me.” It was so good I actually bought a copy and can still hear the words now: “Oooh gosh darn it doncha know. I’m a Cheesehead baby. The pride of Wisconsin.” I recall lines much cleverer than that, of course. But there’s nothing like good old small town smart alecks.

We’re the last family in Fort Wayne that is still using dial-up, or so my kids tell me, so I’ve not got the patience to wait. I can imagine, though, just what it is all about.

john, iirc, the correct title to the song to which you refer is just “loser.” that’s the song by beck, right?
the song “i’m a loser” is a beatles number, sung and mostly written by john lennon.
and the comic paul gilmartin has a song bit called, iirc, a dying packer fan’s last request. hilarious.
