"Lost My Lunch," Matthias parody of "Lost In Love,"Air Supply, Comment by Eighties Kid Report this comment
I actually liked the OS. It was the start of the 80s. I liked the acoustic guitars, electric pianos and synths. Good song. Unfortunately, Air Supply's subsequent releases smacked of Jim Steinman / Meat Loaf bombast and pretention and that made me LOSE MY LUNCH ; ) Great job.
"Nazarene in the ISIS," Paul Warren parody of "Anarchy in the UK,"The Sex Pistols, Comment by American Anti-Christ Anarchist Report this comment
You need to read up on some books, and I don't mean the psychotic Ann Coulter crap either. "Allah" is the Arabian name just as "God" is the English name for the same Deity. The problem is not Islam or Christianity or such - it's the fanatics. All religions have them just as they all have true practitioners. This parody appears as an ignorant, immature piece of garbage that some school kid would put out in order to appear "macho" and wanting to ride the "badness" train for "major coolness". This ain't the Sex Pistols, it's the Sux Pistols.
"(Mohammed Told Me) You Better Chop 'em Down ," Callmelennie parody of "Shop Around,"Captain & Tenille, Comment by How Long? How Long Must We Sing This Song? Report this comment
With all the stupid fanaticism and pettiness and violence and corruption that has engulfed practically ALL religions today, the last thing we need is some cheapo parody that reinforces horrible stereotypes and cheapens and trivializes all the violent ugliness and ignorance and mindless hate. Yes, ISIS is evil and rotten to the core but after Saddam Hussein was ousted all these scumbag groups came out from under the rock. Saddam was a despotic tyrant and a douschbag but getting rid of him didn't improve anything. Sorry, but there ain't nothing funny here. This parody is CRAP.
Uh, so, how's that whole "absolute moral authority" thing coming along, hypocrites? Does anybody even remember who Cindy is anymore? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Buuueller?

I've never been a huge video game guy, especially most Nintendo games with characters like Kirby. The pacing seemed to be spot on (even for a crap OS like this haha). While you seem to know your stuff, most of this was over my head. Nice work, though

I think the pacing was spot on, and while the rhymes were a bit repetitive, this was still pretty solid. Sadly, this is all I can say about this spoof because even though there are plenty of versions of Alice in Wonderland...I haven't seen any of them. I know the names of the characters and that's about it haha. Not your fault, but mine for being not up to date with basic references in pop culture. Nice work!

Perfect match up of OS with parody topic. The complete randomness of the song lends itself to a "Hangover"-esque type of feel.

You've got that Barry-esque and Turtle-esque ability to shoehorn in all kinds of semantic information with minimum expenditure of syllables, using all sorts of jerry-rigged grammatical constructs. Not many here can do that; I can do it occassionaly, but I'm always running into the problem of one too many syllables

God was angry because Onan broke Levirate Marriage by having intercourse with Tamar but refusing to get her pregnant by pulling out. He disgraced himself, Tamar, and the memory of his slain brother Er. This example has been misused by the Catholic Church against contraception and by Rabbis and some Christian denominations against masturbation. Both are false. Onan was disobedient and evil in denying Tamar a child. YHWH struck him down. Btw, God is a spirit and has no blood to boil. Jesus (the Word made flesh) was not born until 7 BC during Tishri. FYI

Thanks, JAB and RDA (LOL). My original idea was to say that Smokey Robinson had converted to Islam and changed his name to Ibn Duzhaan (Son of Smoke). But then it hit me -- did not the Seventies-era, Gorgonzolan cheese-fest that was "The Captain and Tenille" also do this song, setting, in the process, the gold standard for wholly unnecessary and wholly unappreciated song covers? And would not the visual of Toni Tenille, she of "Muskrat Love", singing about mass beheadings send this post into here-to-fore uncharted territories of hilarity? ... Surprisingly, the Tenillian gender switcheroo wasn't any problem at all. All I had to do was switch "hon" for "son" a few times

So far Islamic immigration has not been a problem as it has been in Sweden and Norway, but I won't hold my breath. Anyway, those ISIS guys are worse than Mongols - they want to just kill, rape and loot while the Mongols wanted to reign and put up an orderly state. For Mongols, violence was just means; for ISIS, it is the purpose in itself.

(ABC) I kind of disagree with Aggy, in that this isn;t one of my favorites from you even of recent. Yes, the Ludacris parts were great and you hit a lot of good references in those portions, but the Taio parts were so repetitive. You rhymes "heart" with "tart" way too many times, and I started to get bored with it. I'm looking for a lot more creativity than this from you. Especially since you come up with some of the most unique ideas I've ever seen. The rhyming in this one just seems really lazy. Sorry, I really liked the concept, but I don't think you did enough with it.

(ABC) The OS is so frantic, it was almost exhausting. I could easily match the OS to your concept. It's a solid parody. The pacing is great and the rhymes worked well, but I don't know if the oddness of the OS helped you or hurt you in the comedy area. Yeah, it gives the spoof the right tone, but I think the lyrics suffered a little bit. I just didn't find it all that funny to be honest. Sorry, 545.

Real good. Great, even. A rap with longer sentences means you have a lot to work with, but you faced it head-on, matched the pace very well, and chose a subject that had some built-in humor.

Starts out matching the pace exactly, but loses a little bit as the song goes on. It's mildly funny, but it didn't make me giggle at all, really. You're good with words, though, so maybe it's just the subject matter that's a little dull. Good choice of song to parody, you've had enough to work with, and you did a pretty good job. It just could have been funnier.

I entirely agree with Agrimorfee. This parody is one that could have been very good, but you put a minimal amount of effort into it. If you haven't rewritten this by now, then that's a shame.

I got lost trying to follow it in parts, so there are parts where the pacing is wrong. It did make me LOL once, though, so I'll give you that. The repetition is painful in the original song, and that pain is shared here as well. You've kept some of the original lyrics, which is also generally a bad sign. I think you can do better than this. I hope you've improved since 2008.

This is a difficult song to parody, so I admire your choice and I think the attempt was a good one.

It had the same effect on me as a child when it first came out, Jonathan -- it would almost make me cry, possibly because I had lost one of my grandmothers just a few years before. Could be the reason I cracked myself up when I sang "Eleanor Rigby" to the tune of "Paperback Writer." That jarring juxtaposition which provides relief from a bad emotion is fundamental to humor ..... And if you need to do penance for laughing at "Lonely Bat Rigby", then check out my "Whotles" parody "Baba O'Rigby". It's every bit as depressing as the original ;-D

Most of the WW2 U-boats did run on the surface until the Dutch Snorkel was confiscated and improved by the Germans. By 1943 it was damn dangerous to be spotted on the surface. Air attacks and destroyer depth charges made singing of the "Golden Times" a thing of the past. The Type XXI gave the Germans back the edge, but it was too late by 1945... 70 percent sang "Down, Down, Down, We Go!"

Nice one Suzanna- 555! I haven't used direct voltage to cook a sausage yet, but there's nothing like a pulse jet BBQ or cooking eggs and bacon on a sizzling hot car hood in the desert either! We have lots of people who also eat roadkill over here Suzanna, how about in Finland?

Let's say that techies and especially students of my alma mater are prone to invent all kinds of hacks on borderline of insanity - such as barbecuing a sausage by leading the electric current directly through it. When you got lots of intelligence, strange sense of humour and very little wisdom, innovations like that are sure to pop out.

The ohmic sausage is actually a working and quick way to barbecue a sausage, but it is also extremely dangerous - if you touch the sausage when current on, you will get potentially lethal electric shock. Also if the electrodes are not tightly attached to the sausage, an electric arc and subsequent fire will ensue.

I have done my fair share of hacks, but I've never tried ohmic sausage. Most people do have enough common sense not to try to electrocute their food. My father-in-law once did it, and he said there was a significant side taste of ozone.

Yes, the American 120 V / 60 Hz will produce similar results. No insurance will cover any damage to people or property if something goes wrong.

Not only are Eleanor Rigby and Paperback Writer a matched pair, they're a pair that are also perfect subs, pace-wise for each other. I sensed this even as a kid, as I would sometimes crack kids up by singing out -- Eleanor Rigby ... Eleano-o-o-or! ...... And I am truly humbled to be mentioned in the same post as the Terrific Terrapin. I still think the greatest feat of song parodying legerdemain I've ever seen was when he smooshed "American Pie" into "Wreck of The Edmund FitzGerald" and then did the reverse smoosh, all on the SAME DAY!! ....... And as long as we're on the subject of Turtle-related smooshes, Patrick, you should take a bow for your own smooshing of "Happy Together" and "Wreck of the Edmund FitzGerald" -- "Imagine ship and crew; ore, too" Classic!

"anguish that Westerners don't know" and "Scorn us for being hot for war" are nice echoes of the original. "Galway Bay" was one of my father's favorite songs. He also liked a parody with a line "When she talks, she doesn't speak in Gaelic, but in a language that the clergy do not know". That may have been one of my childhood introductions to the concept of parody. Your version is a nicely topical rendition.

Drove through a neighborhood similar to this in the no-man's land between Kansas City, Missouri and Independence. Officially, it is known as "Blue Summit", but the locals call it "Dogpatch".

I recall seeing this plane parked at the St Louis airport on my way to somewhere else about 40 years ago. This aircraft was made to order for the "Mile High Club". Which raises the question: what club do you join if you do "it" on a train?

I found a shorter video in which the sausage was sliced before the electrodes were applied. The meat actually began to make a whistling sound, just before it burst into flame and began emitting clouds of smoke. The cook used a 230 Volt outlet. But, I imagine a US 120V would produce similar results. Is this a popular method of cooking in Finland?

"ISIS is the Scum of the World," Susanna Viljanen parody of "Woman Is the Nigger of the World,"John Lennon, Comment by Patrick Report this comment
I'm sure I've heard the John Lennon song, but don't really remember it. In US, a song with "Nigger" (known colloquially as "The N Word") would not be broadcast on radio or TV. It is the most "forbidden" word in English. The "F" word is mild by comparison. Hell, or should I say "heck", there is a local TV station that deletes the word "Jap" from movies made during the Second World War. Your sentiments about ISIS are correct. The Western world needs to develop a sense of its own superiority and survival and eliminate these pests from the face of the earth. Other than perhaps Vladimir Putin, I see no head of state (I shan't say "leader") whom I would trust to carry out such a mission, dare I say "crusade".
"Nazarene in the ISIS," Paul Warren parody of "Anarchy in the UK,"The Sex Pistols, Comment by Callmelennie Report this comment
ISIS is an acronym for the ENGLISH translation (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) of "al Daula al Islamiah al 'iraq wa al Sham" So the fact that ISIS matches the name of the Egyptian goddess, Isis, is pure coincidence. If these monsters were to put an acronym to their chosen name, it would come out as DI'S ......... In Arabic, the word Iraq does not start out with the vowel "I", but with a consonant, that sounds like a camel clearing its throat and is not found at all in the languages of normal humans

Susanna: Nasty, yes; what drew me to TOS were the third line about sunset and the last stanza about afterlife. The other three stanzas took some work.
CML: Those Northern Irish rebellions had a strong religious (Catholic/Protestant) rivalry along with the politics. That's analogous to Sunni/Shi'a conflicts.

One of my great grandmothers, whose maiden name was Lynch, was from Galway. I'm told that the Lynches had the run of the place -- a couple of them were even mayors of Galway. And yet, even though I was an Arabic linguist for the US Army in a previous millenium, I never made the connection between Galway and Middle East radicalism ........ until now

"There's a guy works down the corner shop's in ISIS," Phil Alexander parody of "Chip Shop,"Kirsty MacColl, Comment by Rob Arndt Report this comment
555, although I disagree with your Introductory comments to the extent of Euro terrorist recruitment by ISIS. France and UK have many Islamists and mosques that support ME terror and which recruit foreign extremists. But as for Germany, the trend is more terror-tourism. Germans are known as much for love of vacationing as for weapons and killing in war, chemicals, heavy machinery, and luxury cars. Probably the best example is hip hop artist Desu Dogg who changed his name and is fighting for ISIS. Other examples are former Bundeswehr that are pissed that the German Govt is reluctant to send German troops into regional wars apart from Peacekeeping. True German foreign Islamists that support medieval warfare are rare. The former E German Soviet weaponry was interesting, but sold or given to E European nations. Germany even gave away their MiG-29s. So joining ISIS gives access to these types of weapons, travel through the ME, and a channel for German aggression under the surface. I base this on German independent research reported by German news. It is not my sole opinion. Der Spiegel also has reported on Nazism alive in the Bundeswehr at many levels and with KSK. FYI

Phil, this reminded me of the skits in Monty Python episodes where Brit neighbors were interviewed about a recently unmasked criminal, and all said he had been a nice normal boy. And your multi-lingual farewells highlight the national and ethnic diversity of these novice jihadis who convert to Islam and join the holy cause. 555
