b.) the greatest school of satirical verse since at least the 1740s
c.) to poetry what Jeff Koons is to sculpture

e.) the future
f.) nostalgia for the present
g.) garden-variety camp
h.) scrambling corporate internets
i.) sponsored by Google ™
j.) a smile for literate people in the post-literate age
k.) all of the above.
If there are any results, they will be posted at this site.
