Ikea: More Than Furniture for Divorced Men

Canuckflack found a wonderful tribute to Ikea, that mix and match University favorite, that humble Swedish department store....

Long ago in days of yore
It all began with a god named Thor
There were Vikings and boats
And some plans for a furniture store
It's not a bodega, it's not a mall
And they sell things for apartments smaller than mine
As if there were apartments smaller than mine

Ikea: just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen
Ikea: selling furniture for college kids and divorced men
Everyone has a home
But if you don't have a home you can buy one there

(You can also get $1 breakfast on weekends.)
