I'll hate myself in the morning, I'm sure... but you started it...

But I know how to exclusive-or
And I think if I just did it more
What a wonderful code this would be

Don't know much 'bout anonymity
I'm only surfin' the vicinity
Don't know much about elliptic curves
Discrete log'rithms make me swerve
But I just invented Vigenere
And I think that if I use it here
What a wonderful code this would be

Now, I don't claim to be an 'A' student
I've got nothing to prove
Though maybe by being a real 'A' student
I could get by without peer review

Don't know much about modulus
I've got a small one, what's all the fuss?
I never heard of this guy Louis Freeh
How come he's asking me for my keys?
But I just invented ROT-13
Nobody's broken it, it's really keen
What a wonderful code this will be!

Have you found errors nontrivial or marginal, factual, analytical and illogical, arithmetical, temporal, or even typographical? Please let me know; drop me email. Thanks!
