Gluing some gears on it does not a steampunk make. One Sir Reginald Pikedevant, Esquire takes serious issue with those too lazy to really know what steampunk is and wrote a little ditty about it. He says the song is “Inspired by the category “Things That Are Not Steampunk” on Regretsy , and (of course) those peerless purveyors of Euterpean epopee, Professor Elemental and Mr B, the Gentleman Rhymer.” Heck, he got a fire burning under my butt. I mean, hot steam. I don’t think I’m doing this right.
