Limited Edition Item: Lumberjack

Share:

UPDATE: There is more to the description than I knew. Thanks to Mark Allan, it comes from Monty Python. Who knew?  Go here to see the Lumberjack Song.
There is a new Limited Edition item available in the Marketplace. The Lumberjack has stats of 176/103 and costs 35 reward points. Whoever writes the descriptions didn’t put a lot of thought into this one. “He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay” is good for a laugh because the underlying meaning is “I couldn’t think of anything to say about this guy”. If they want players to get excited about their loot items, they need to do better than this!

Actually, it's a reference to the classic Monty Python Lumberjack sketch where Michael Palin begins by singing a "manly" ode to lumberjacks:

"I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay; I sleep all night and I work all day"

The rest of the lyrics, as expected from the Python troupe, are quite silly.

I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay. I sleep all night and I work all day. (Corus) He's a lumberjack, and he's okay. He sleeps all night and he works all day. I cut down trees. I eat my lunch. I go to the lavatory. On Wednesdays I go shoppin' And have buttered scones for tea. (Corus) I cut down trees. I skip and jump. I like to press wild flowers. I put on women's clothing And hang around in bars. (increasingly bemused Corus) I cut down trees. I wear high heels, Suspendies, and a bra. I wish I'd been a girlie, Just like my dear Papa (Corus stops singing and throws dead fish at him).
