Fishbowl, the Glass-Walled Cluster

(Sung to the tune of Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer)

There's the Building 12 cluster and
four-one five nine,
thirty-eight, SIPB, and
But do you recall
The most famous cluster of all?

Fishbowl, the Glass-Walled Cluster
Had a very wooden owl,
And if you ever saw it,
You might even say it scowled.

All of the other users,
Used to laugh and call it names,
They'd never use poor Fishbowl,
To play anything in /mit/games.

Then one laggy finals eve,
Schiller came to say,
"Fishbowl, with your screens so bright,
Won't you run my shell tonight?"

Then how the users loved it,
As they shouted out with glee,
"Fishbowl, the Glass-Walled Cluster,
You'll go down in history!"
