Stand up, stand up...dammit!

NEW YORK (AP) -ABC, CBS and NBC will air a simultaneous one-hour fundraiser for cancer research ["Stand up to cancer"] in prime-time on Sept. 5. The three network evening news anchors—Katie Couric, Charles Gibson and Brian Williams—were to announce the plans on the network morning news shows Wednesday, but word slipped out earlier.

*Stand up, stand up to cancer

Stand up, stand up to cancer,
You anchors Big Three, now
Pandering for ratings
Since Fox has cleaned your plow.

Divert from orphaned maladies
That need the funding more;
Stand up, stand up to cancer,
You fading di-no-saurs.

*To the tune of "Stand up for Jesus," the hymn written by Rev­er­end Dud­ley Tyng just before he perished in a tragic incident of mule-fondling.
