Preamble: The delightfully savage and clever took it upon herself to enter my challenge, and took some little shots at me in the process. So here is my full rebuttal. short and not so sweet?


Ol' Cathy, our Canadian buddy, a national legend

Trudeux's lover under his command?


With glaring eyes, we see thee rise

Top Story again, sublime and fiercely funny


From Boundary Peak 187 to Cape Spear

Ol' Cathy, they speak of your majesty


Keep Princess Abigail well-fed and content

Ol' Cathy, for we know you owe it to her


Ol' Cathy, for we know you owe it to her


Thanks for reading!

Author's Notes: I'm sure we can all agree, Cathy is a necessary part of the Vocal community, but I felt I had to snipe back a little and using the national anthem and Princess Abigail felt like a great way to do it.

    This is the kind of Vocal beef we need more of around here

    Paul... I have so much appreciation for not only you taking it like a Champ but also for you going full hog back at her!! I love this "feud" that started between the two sassiest people on Vocal!! This was so much fun!!

  • Hahahhahahahahahaha I'm so happy that you added Princess Abigail! Not completely unrelated but I hope you remember that I am Princess Dhar-Sheena and Professor Red. My hybrid name is Princess Professor Red. Kbyeeee 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I see you found the secret song of Canada. well done

  • I anxiously awaited your response & you did not disappoint, Paul. Carla Tortelli Lebec ("Cheers") would be so thrilled with your tribute to "O Canada".

    Hilarious...been waiting for the rebuttal since yesterday! I agree a very neccesary part. Still waiting for her to compile 'Abi-Tales' though...definitely owes it to her!
