Parody Song Title:

"Crumbs (The crummiest diet ever)"

Parody Written by:

Ethan Mawyer

The Lyrics

"Crumbs have no calories" (my mom) It makes almost as much sense as atkins as a diet plan
I've tried lots of diets that made me want to die
Weeks doing Atkins just caused me to fatten
I so crave a cheeseburger and fries
My mortar and pestle will make them safe for me
(Got to have oreos I got to have oreos)
Now these sweets are my pal since they do not have calories
( Lots of raw cookie dough I love that raw cookie dough)

I eat tons of crumbs, each one has no fat
So I can go wild while my gut gets flat
I am a genius, I am just so shrewd
I'll be so healthy and eat lots of food

Why'd you say that my math is fuzzy?
Millions times zero is plainly none at all
I'll write a book and make lots of money
But how can I stretch ten words to that size?
(That's not too hard you know, it's not really hard you know)
I can make the book thick using fake statistics and lies
(That's not too hard you know, it's not really hard you know)
And I'll use some of the bucks to become liposucked

I eat tons of crumbs I don't really care
That they think I'm weird for crushing a pear
It is such a mess, but I do not mind
Since I will decrease my giant behind

And I hope
It's a messed up scale since
I sure hope
I don't weigh 215 when I just was two hundred and two

I've become so plump this plan clearly failed
Since the fault is mine it is not the scale
I am no genius I am just a fool
I am too obese to go in a pool

I've become so plump this plan clearly failed
I really need to start exercising
I've become so plump this plan clearly failed
I really need to start exercising
as far as i know no one has ever gone on the crumb diet

It doesn't matter if the diet plan is successful, so long as the book sales are! Particularly love the idea you used for this, Ethan.

Probably the best parody of "Numb" yet! Straight 5's!

Hehe...love the idea, though the diet failed. Good entry for ABC comp.

Fave line: "Weeks doing Atkins just caused me to fatten."

Yep - the bucks line was a good 'un!

Very nice. Let her know: adding an infinite number of infinitessimal pieces gives a finite sum (that being the theory behind all of calculus ;-)). Anyway, this song was very well written. You get 5s.

Wicked stuff, rippin' on your mom and all; I like it.

The pacing pn this song sucks and some of the lines make no sense at all. This was pretty good though sonsidering its probably one of you only parodies.

(ABC) Ethan - DKTOS, can't access Messageboard to see if you posted a link, I'm getting an error there this morning when I try. I know I'm late here on the "ABC" contest - my apologies, been a bit under the weather this past week and haven't done much of anything except sleep, wake up, moan, pull in the morning paper, check my mail & e-mail, eat a bit and go back to sleep. Feeling better this morning. I'm trying to at least comment and vote on all the ones where I know the originals.
neminem - May 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, everyone is getting that error. Anyway, I have it down to three, and I'm leaning towards this one. Also, you should probably have Chucky check whether those 10 ones are all the work of that Nevermind person.
ethan - May 16, 2004 - Report this comment
i was pretty shocked to find the 10 ones too... and i think i probably know the pacing of this song better than most people considering how much i had to listen to it to write it. Anyway, i can't get the messageboard either i guess maybe that's why there were so many votes missing when i counted the votes friday evening. I already announced that claude won the round i'm probably going to let that stand and push the voting back a bit for the next round depending on when the messageboard comes online.

I really liked this! Extremely clever. 4-5-5, I only noticed one or two pacing mistakes.

Forget the rest of the parody - the real star of this parody is the chorus. The best chorus parody ever, I can hear Chester sing this now....
