The great thing about making filksongs is that you never really know A) what form your initial inspiration is going to take, or B) where that initial inspiration is going to take you. So it was with this one: while Rhianna's 'Umbrella' was playing on the radio, my mind idly placed the phrase 'workin' my calculator' in there instead (helped by the fact that Rhianna turns umbrella into a four-syllable word by pronouncing it um-ber-ell-a); leading me to begin pondering what kind of person could possibly be singing a song with those words in it. Well, an accountant, obviously. Someone obsessed with facts and figures, who would find slogging through a mountain of paperwork not a chore but an epic quest to wrest order and chaos. Ah, of course - the SuperGroup's resident poindexter, Pocket Protector!
