As you may have heard, Justin Bieber had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week last week, fueled in part by paparazzi fatigue.

To the rescue is Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle with a Jonathan Coulton-esque response to the Bieber/paparazzo brouhaha that borrows heavily from Wheaton's Law to make a self-evident point in short-song form.

"You don't have to leave Justin alone," Darnielle croons pensively, "but don't be an asshole."


Considering how catchy "Short Song For Justin Bieber and His Paparazzi" is, hopefully the message will endure — and not just for Justin Bieber and his paparazzi.
