The Lyrics

Every time Joe Biden opens his mouth, his feet go in. When he gives a speech, it's pass the popcorn time! He is such an ignoramus.
It was the 20th of January, a cold and windy DC day.
Obama was inaugurated but Joe had something he wanted to say.
His handlers started shakin' not from the cold but from his speech.
They realized his mouth was just a place for Joe to put his feet.
Then he said he hangs with friends at Home Depot for latte around ten.
Today VP Joe from Delaware's foot is in his mouth again.

Michelle said to Barry, "Do you think it's foot-in-mouth disease?"
"Well, VP Joe never had a lick of sense. Pass the popcorn, please."
"He said that when I met King Abdullah I didn't bow."
"I had misspoke when I picked Joe for VP but it's too late now."
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Union Street.
Today VP Joe from Delaware's mouth is all around his feet.

Big Brother said just how he wants the porkulus money to be spent.
Spreading wealth around makes money look like it's heaven sent.
Joe said you better not mess with him, he's absolutely serious.
Obama's looking like he's ready to throw someone under the bus.
I saw Joe yesterday in Congress pretending to be casting votes.
Today VP Joe from Delaware is just the butt of righteous jokes.

And Michelle said to me, "You know, that bozo's gonna get us hosed."
"He's been talkin' all morning and his pie hole is never closed."
"That racist preacher, Rev'rend Wright, dropped by today."
He said, "G-damn America." "I love it when he gets that way."
When Joe said, "That's patriotic," all the people laughed at him then.
Today VP Joe from Delaware's foot is in his mouth again.

A term has come 'n' gone since we heard the news 'bout VP Joe.
The B.O. failed re-election, his socialism had to go.
No one wanted any type of a single payer health care plan.
So we flagged ourselves to show patriotism - Yes we can!
Now "Carter's Second Term" is gone and we're happy to see him go,
There's just no one to make fun of like that bozo named VP Joe.

Nice bit of reporting on this one - good title switch for your parody.

A song to please the old "Gentry" ;D

Agree 100% with the message, and many of the lines were very good. Unfortunately, out of 30 lines, the only lines that *did* pace correctly to the original were 7, 11, 18, (22 if you put two syllables in "child"), and 25. Not matching the final, theme line in each stanza save one, well, hmmm... Probably the lowest percent of line matches in this writer's experience. 1-5-3.

Geez, I hate to keep plugging this, but TT's Tips To Perfect Parody Pacing, which has to be moved soon due to Yahoo shutting down Geocities free hosting in late October, would have nailed this and made it a solid 555. For the next few weeks, it's at

Gut cut off there. The guide:
geocities.com/tommythedancingturtle/Pacing_Page_1.html

btw, ignore the 111 votes. Those are automatic from people who disagree with your politics, and have nothing to do with the quality of the parody. They'll do that to one that's perfectly paced, as well..

I'll echo TT's comments, but score a 2-4-3. I'll *always* laugh at a VP parody. Heck, I'll laugh at him even without one! ;)

Let's see, who have the Republicans nominated for Vice President? Richard Nixon. Spiro Agnew. Bob Dole. George Herbert Walker Bush. Dan Quayle. Dick Cheney. Sarah Palin. Joe Biden's not in their league as a gaffemeister. And only a fool would predict an Obama-Biden defeat in 2012. Seriously, who ya got? Ya got nobody who can beat him.

Mr. Pacholek, you *are* aware that I spoke of Roosevelt going on TV in 1929 to reassure the public after the Crash of '29, despite the fact that (a) Roosevelt wasn't President then, and (b) Television wasn't available for public broadcast then. And that I claimed to hang out these days at a diner that was closed 20 years ago. Etc. I think those alone easily beat your other gaffe candidates -- or did you not know about these? Or refuse to read about them?

If you're scoring a 2-4-3, why are there no 2s for pacing or 4s for funny showing? Forget to vote? ;) ;) ;)

Oh, fine. Shine a spotlight on every single one of my flaws in front of an international audience. You are fortunate indeed that *I* am not nearly so vindictive, Mr. Typo-Turtle.
