Code Monkey

In episode 54 of Cast On, Brenda plays a song by Jonathon Coulton called Code Monkey.  I love this song!  You can listen to it on his website and it is hilarious!

Code Monkey get up get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
Code Monkey have boring meeting
With boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very dilligent
But his output stink
His code not "functional" or "elegant"
What do Code Monkey think?
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write god damned login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy, just proud.

All his music is on the website, thanks to the Creative Commons license.  It's unusual to see an artist happy to do this.  You can also buy the separate tracks from several CDs, and there are a bunch of free downloads too.
