The Lyrics

Part of my "Shine Brighter" self-challenge. Throwing things at a bad stand-up comedian is a time-honoured tradition. Also, "flung" is a funny word. Enjoy!
Hand me a weapon, I
I need to set this bastard straight
Dared to call me a moron so I'm in the mood to smash his face
Look, hand me something quickly buddy, like a coffee jar
He's yelling that we smell like asses, want to kick his arse, man
Just give me something painful-like to throw
A glass, a bottle or a chair
He's disgraced the word "comedian"
He's even worse than Mencia, you know
It's about time he shut his trap
So how 'bout a bet: if I throw this
And it smacks him in the groin
You owe me a Coke

It's time
Things were flung
Cause this joker is an arsehole
Wanna throw bottles
At his skull

It's time
Things were flung
This style of jokes can be funny
Not by this dummy
Let's throw junk

Thinks he's funny, he's not
Askin' for pots
Thrown at his head, cause he sucks
I don't think the rest of the bar would blame us
Yeah, they're lookin' mad
Cause this guy's an ass
Before this guy says who he wants to bone

It's time
Things were flung
He's the world's worst stand-up comic
Really moronic
Let's throw stuff

It's time
Things were flung
I want to burst this guy's bubble
So under rubble
He'll be stuck

Bury this guy in shite (Nananananana)
His jokes have no taste tonight (Nananananana)
Throw some crap at this guy (Nananananana)
He's being a twat tonight (Nananananana)

Whole bar is on my side (Nananananana)
No-one finds this stand-up fun (Nananananana)
Those strong guys wanna throw a piano, all right (Nananananana)
I would feel bad for this guy (Nananananana)
But he has mocked our lives (Nananananana)
We came here to forget, so junk we'll throw (Nananananana)

It's time
Things were flung
Anyone got old tomatoes?
Throw some potatoes
At his junk

It's time
Things were flung
And I think we will be let off
Cause I see some cops
All riled up

So if ev'ryone in here throws shit
And it makes this prat shut up
That's real comedy, all right

And that's every song in "Shine Brighter" parodied! Once I've taken care of the songs in the official top 25 that weren't in the mashup (wish me luck on parodying Drake...twice), it's back to the 2010 list.

I approve of this because you don't talk about wasting food like tomatoes or pies that often get thrown at bad stand up comedians in cartoons. A waste of food is a major issue and you can't really maim somebody with produce.

This gets fives for being funny?? Throwing hard objects and excrement at a bad comedian is funny?? Maiming is funny?? To paraphrase Joe Pesci in GoodFellas, "You're funny how, I mean funny like you're a clown, you amuse us? You make us laugh, you think you're friggin' amusing us? What do you mean funny, funny how? How are you funny?"

I'm a visitor. Do I get to vote? O.K., I will.

I became a little disappointed when there was no twist at the end, I think I would have preferred a version where the stand-up guy came back with a really funny "your ma is so..." joke or something to turn the crowd around. Maybe because we're all kind of comedy writers here ourselves, I dunno, that's just how it made me feel. Totally OK otherwise!

I love the OS, but I kinda have to agree with Peter. A little disappointed there was no twist, but still a well written spoof. Goof job!

It was good, not as good as your other works but still well done.

I was really impressed with this TCOP. Not sure why everyone is looking for a 'twist'. The pacing on this is great, and it involves throwing stuff at a guy's junk, both strong positives for a parody. This OS is HARD to match to because of how uneven it is, so excellent work here.
