I wasn't kidding about "collaborative" in the tagline

Elizabeth, R-Bro and I need one more stanza (but will happily accept any number) for the ditty we're writing, inspired by Kara's comment that the list of candy disposal ideas made her think of Paul Simon's "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover." I've got a closer and I'm dying to use it.

Next, I will lead us all in a rousing Chicken Dance. After which, we can sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" in a round.

You never know what's gonna happen in the comments around here.
