Parody Song Title:

"Have Ablutions"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

You say you never have ablutions—
Smell you, woe!—
We all wish you'd bathe, you churl.
You tell me that it's devolution,
Smell like roe!
The stench will make somebody hurl!
And when you talk about olfaction,
No one needs bloodhounds to sniff you out.
Don't you know you're making me all rhin?
All rhin, all rhin?

Well, there is a simple solution—
Smell your toes!—
Why don't you just take a bath?!
There could be a pong retribution.
Hell hath no
Fury like nasal wrath.
You think it is funny that some people simply hate
Your smell, much like sushi well past the freshness date.
Don't you know you're making me all rhin?
All rhin, all rhin?

There's got to be pong diminution.
Smell pillow!
I think you never change the bed.
You say it's just for "rest"itution.
Well they grow!
What's that that's crawling on your head?
Truth is, you smell like a picnic of carrion cow.
You ain't gonna make it; you're like eau de garbage scow.
Don't you know you're making me all rhin?
All rhin, all rhin?

John Barry, I officially challenge you to post 23 parodies in a single day. If you do so, I shall post a JPG of a special GOLD MEDAL to officially recognize such a historic Amiright event! I place that challenge here because posting 23 parodies in a single day would truly be Revolutionary!

JD, thanks for the vote. I'll mull over the challenge. Not sure if the members would appreciate it, though.

Perhaps as people read this parody's comments in "Latest Comments", they can chime in here with their opinions on the challenge. I think it's possible that if you did it just once (post 23 parodies on the same day), the members would appreciate it as a very impressive and hilariously funny one-time over-the-top stunt. But more than once, well, no, probably not.

I think I'm gonna do it, for a once-only as you suggest. Then a couple of months of R&R.

I don't really have an opinion on JD's challenge, but I must say that I can totally relate to this parody. I quit smoking in July, and my sense of smell came back with a fury! It almost makes me want to start up again...

I think it would take me 3 months of compiling to write 23 parodies...and then I could submit them all on one day...

I started a new topic on the Song Parodies messageboard on www.inthe00s.com to track this history event!
