[To John Rox's "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas", which has long been my favorite holiday song, and not only because it is accompanied by solo bassoon!]
I want a BVT blocking bug for the holidays*A BVT blocking bug I'm asking forDon't want no UI bug, no meas-l-y P4I want a bug that crashes my app like it's never been crashed before
I want a BVT blocking bug for the holidaysOne that brings my computer down in flamesI've already seen thirty, yet they are all much too tameI am looking for one that will make me holler and exclaim
I can see me now in my dev's doorway proclaiming what I foundAnd the joy which fills my eyes will be met with tears and saddened criesAs he sees that his code has run aground
I want a BVT blocking bug for the holidaysIf it only took a few steps that'd be grandI'll trumpet it around, in the halls I will boundIt may take a while before I settle downDo you think I'm too far out of hand
My dev and PM hope I'll stay awayFor I've been showing up in their doors every single day
Why are there so many tri-vi-al bugs?When I find a bad one I will give my dev a hug!
I can see me now chatting with my PM, grinning ear to earFor this feature which she spec'd, it is completely wreckedAnd I'm the one who found out where!
I want a BVT blocking bug for the holidaysFinding one will make my day completeI am hunting high, and I am hunting lowI am hunting one which makes my PC glowPlease oh please yes please give me this treat!
* Feel free to replace "the holidays" with Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Solstice, or whatever your favorite holiday may be!
*** If a BVT blocker was on your holiday wishlist too, I need a tester! Interested? Let's talk: Michael dot J dot Hunter at microsoft dot com. Great testing and coding skills required.
