Comment Recognized piece of nerd humor. Circulated during the sixties at MIT and could be much older. I vaguely recall that the character Jason in the comic strip Foxtrot may have sung it once. I hardly think it's worth an article, but it might be worth a mention in an article on nerd humor if we had one. (...So, he cut the tree into short lengths and built a rustic table out of them and put the snakes on top of the table just like the wise man advised. And, a week later there were dozens of little snakes! So when he asked the wise man why, he said... "Everybody knows that adders can multiply with a log table!")

Merge with 99 Bottles of Beer, if in fact it is true, as dpbsmith claims, that this has some notability. Doesn't need its own article. 23skidoo 04:34, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Merge -- don't simply delete. It does have some pop-cult notability, and was employed in the TV cartoon version of the Dilbert comic. --Christofurio 13:47, Jan 20, 2005 (UTC)
Delete. I have now included an adequate mention of it in 99 Bottles of Beer. It's not in such widespread use that anybody would be likely to look it up by name; global text-searches should do well enough; no need for a redirect. Dpbsmith(talk) 15:26, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Del, merging anything that hasn't already been merged. --Jerzy(t) 05:06, 2005 Jan 23 (UTC)
Delete, blurb on 99 bottles if you want. Zellin 05:22, Jan 23, 2005 (UTC)
