Clay's Influence Felt Across the World

Clay's influential creation of Baritonia is reverberating across the choir world. How do I know? Because I've sung baritone before.

Nick and MBV have given us a taste of their on creativity . . . Nick with the flag to the left and a rather small list of why it's great to be a tenor. Nick's best contribution? The homophobic name of the country: United Straights of Tenor.

MBV has not provided a flag (yet) but gives a wonderful response to Clay with her "reasons why sopranos are better." My favorite? The one about Sigmund Freud (a baritone) . . . but I won't quote that here in the interest of good taste . . . but it is very funny.

My other favorites in a list full of creative jabs:

Sopranos can resurrect the dead. They choose not to, however, because the dead sound like baritones after they've been in the ground for a while. The world is fortunate that Sopranos are also merciful.

When we get tired of singing the melody, we sing the descant.

Sopranos can impregnate men with their voices. The baritones still think they've just been developing beer bellies.

Baritonia's (all hail BARITONIA!) official response has been posted on my website.

if there was to be an altoland, i think it would be left to me... or holly. as it stands right now, i'd say we've pretty much been conquered before we even started.

I have to say that I think that God is a bass through and through. He is not like any of those pansy baritones...

I love it! Sopranos are the best....If we were men, we would be the better versions of the baritones. Even though we should sing tenor, we'd sing lower just to show them up...

At least we sing the right words, Janey...er, Sam.

Dare I join in? :S... Baritones aren't all that special because they could easily be replaced by a tenor or a bass.
