paean to Tesla

You're probably familiar with the The Oatmeal's classic "Why Nikola Tesla was the Greatest Geek Who Ever Lived"—an unabashedly biased argument in favor of Tesla-as-superhero, with Thomas Edison as the supervillain. Give the comic strip a read if you've never read it before.

Well, thanks to a coworker, I just learned about the song "Nikola Tesla Dood" on YouTube, animated by the guy who draws The Oatmeal and sung by Sarah Donner. An amusing (and I think well-spent) two minutes of your time.

Keep in mind that there are websites that defend Edison. Peruse those for balance's sake.
