The zero bucks we earned last year alreaddy ecxeeds what most internet startups made.

A week later, Granfather called up Prodigy screaming and holloring with jeallousy. So they said, what the hell, and gave the old bastord a free ID too; (just as long as i prommised to keep the grisly coot out of the chatrooms).
Well, all of the free accounts are ending. They told me that if I want to continue with a free account, to contact the people who gave it to me in the first place to re-authorrize it--but they are no longor with the company!!
To stay on Progidy I will have to enroll back into the payment plan I had. Since I have offors for free site hosting all the time, I descided not to renew.
Ive gotton to know many prodigy users plus allot of enployees are fans of my site. (Also ive been to Internet world and Comdex and allot of other expo's, and you KNOW its true: The Progidy girls are always the cutest).
Yeah, Ive had ocasional outage problems with my website and other minor pains in the ass, but when you look at a whole 2 year's time with any ISP, their record is pretty good. My Progigy dialup conections always worked 99% of the time, AND Prodigy never censored a user web page that I know of--And these are 2 things that CANNOT be said for ANNOTHER large national ISP company who will GO UNNAMED.
...(OK, i'll give you their initials: A.O.L.)
I wont beg them, but if Prodigy decides its in there interest to extend my complommentery account, then certainly, ovbiously, I will stay. But they have to make a living too, and keeping too many freeloaders like me and Granfather "on the tit" as they say wont pull the tugboat.
In any case to comemmorate my thanks, Ive written this heartfelt tribute to them entitled "PRODIGY". it is to be sung to the tune of The Beetle's "Yesterday". (Granfather also wrote a verse--the regulor plain itallic text is me singing it; for the BOLD ALL CAPS verse, to get the full effect of Granpy, please scream the song out in a rural Texas accent at the top of your lungs with a cigarrete clenched tight in your teeth.)
I cant tell you what you mean to me
All those hours we spent happily
Oh i will miss my Prodigy
I'll no longer get your screens for free.
I'm to proud to ask you waive your fee,
O woe is me, O, Prodigy
Youre sad i must go,
And I know,
Youre shedding tears.
Please dont cry like when you lost IBM and Sears
(now it's Granfather's verse, so start screamin in his voice)
LEAVIN' YOU IS SAD I WILL AGREE
ALL THEM TIMES THAT YOU PUT UP WITH ME,
A SUB-HUMAN ANOMALY
SMELLY GRAMPY WONT BE HERE TO SEE
AND YOU WONT HEAR NO MORE SCREAMS FROM ME
WHY WE HAVE TO LEAVE,
ITS NO SECRET, PRODIGY.
I JUST WANT TO HEAVE
FROM THIS DREADFUL
(now its back to my voice)
Look at me:
I'm your Bill and your my Hillary
But now you want to mail that bill to me.
O, this is why, I have to flee.
There were times when we did not agree
But I have nevor loved an ISP
Until I logged on PROD-I-GEEEE.
