SLightly off topic: Poem of the Oracle DBA interviewee

The poem of the Oracle DBA Interviewee....

Hello sir, how do you do?
I'm an Oracle expert,
Let me interview with you!

Twenty years experience here.
Oracle is the one,
that my experience is near.

Yes I'm an expert,
don't you see.
nobody can know databases,
better than me!

What is the SGA you inquired.
his stumbling on the question,
leaves you not terribly inspired.

PGA? What is that you say?
I do not know,
mediocrity is really my way..

But I'm an expert,
don't you see.
nobody can know databases,
better than me!

Explain plan? Oh my!
I think you fix,
your SQL will fly.

Hints, I'm really not so sure,
I think they are going away,
besides, they make SQL un-pure.

But I'm an expert,
don't you see.
nobody can know databases,
better than me!

Normalized design, I've read it seems.
when you have done so,
the database always screams.

What about backups you say?
I Put the tapes in,
I take them out - all day.

But I'm an expert,
don't you see.
nobody can know databases,
better than me!

Have a slow database today?
Hardware is cheaper than tuning,
thats what I always say!

Metalink? I'm too good to go that way.
Tom Kyte, Jonathan Lewis
who in tarnation are they?

Sadly, I look at the DBA, man,
so sad he is...
As I commit his resume to the can.

and in the distance I hear the words...


But I'm an expert,
don't you see.
nobody can know databases,
better than me!

The LDS Church is looking for DBA's. You must be LDS to apply (please don't 
write to me and tell me I'm breaking the law. A church can choose to hire 
members of it's own faith. Look it up if you don't believe me).
