Why, Meg? Why?

I already adore Meg Cabot. So why does she keep doing things that make me like her even more?

Meg watches the new Battlestar Galactica. And Bones. And likes Serenity.

I bet that if I started singing, "Jayne, the man they call Jayne, he robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor" Meg would totally say, "stood up to the man and gave him what for."

In honor of Jayne and Serenity and Meg and Joss Whedon all that is good in the world:

The Ballad of Jayne

Jayne, the man they call Jayne
He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne

Our Jayne saw the mudders' backs breakin'
He saw the mudders' lament
And he saw the magistrate takin'
Every dollar and leavin' five cents
So he said "you can't do that to my people"
He said "you can't crush them under your heel"
So Jayne strapped on his hat
And in 5 seconds flat
Stole everythin' Boss Higgins had to steal

He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne

Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I
The man they call Jayne
He turned 'round his plane
And let that money hit sky
He dropped it onto our houses
He dropped it into our yards
The man they called Jayne
He stole away our pain
And headed out for the stars

He robbed from the rich
And he gave to the poor
Stood up to the man
And gave him what for
Our love for him now
Ain't hard to explain
The hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne.

Lyrics by Joss Whedon, Firefly, Ep: Jaynestown
