I also am distressed to hear of the damage to the Imperial Oubliette. In an attempt to brighten the spirits of the Imperial Torturer and Assorted and Sundry Other Things, I have composed this little song, to be sung to the tune of "Ain't She Sweet".

Note: "Oubliette" is a word of French origin.   Considering that French is the laziest language in the world, and that it's often impossible to find any correspondence between how a word is written and how it is pronounced, "oubliette" is probably pronounced by native speakers of French as something like "uh-bluh".   But for the purposes of this song, we shall pronounce it "oo-blee-ett". Okay?


It's so dingy dank and wet
Have you ever seen a place as creepy as

If you haven't been there yet
There's a few surprises waiting for you at

Just take a look at what's around you
The rats and fleas, they will astound you

It's as bad as it can get
And we hope that you enjoy your stay in our
