The Lyrics

About a week ago, Phil Alexander left a song fragment of this hanging out there in the comments, with an implicit invitation for someone to finish it. Now that the door has been opened for Ebola parodies with yesterday's "Ebola" ..... i-i-i-i-i-ts ....
If it jumps West Africa, cause chaos quite systemic
Finding cure for this disease no longer academic

Because I had a runny stool
When I was just a lad
Me father said to me, you fool
You may have something bad
But then one day I heard a word
Explained me bloody nose
The biggest word I ever heard
And this is how it goes, oh

If it jumps West Africa, cause panic quite endemic
Musn't use amoxils, cause source is quite viremic

I traveled thru Sierre Leone
And everywhere I went
They'd run and hide and all would shriek
There goes a vector gent
When epidemiologists
Take blood tests from me
They'd say this special word
And then I'm quarantined, OH!

If it is not brought to heel, could pass plague septicemic*
If research can't find a cure, need miracle alchemic

Now if there's bleeding from your gums
A symptom is displayed
And if they speak to you this word
You might give in to dismay
You will speak it dreadfully
It will impact your life

"For example ...."


"One night I said it to me girl
Now she'll not become me wife (Cough!)
Oh, and a smart choice she made, too"

It's .. Superscarycontagiousebolaepidemic
*Septicemia is a sympton of bubonic plague

Sickening! 5's

Ironically, I rated this a 555 while seeing my doctor!!! Perhaps, CML you could write another long version of the OS about the new long English word Antidisestablishmentarianism!!! The longest English medical word is Pneumoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (something about inhaling particles of volcanic stuff into the lungs)!!! The full version of DNA is of course 207,000 letters and has never TMK ever been printed out!!! German words and titles are the longest of conventional words b/c they are all lumped together...

Well, thanks Rob and Jonathan. For once, I won't carp about these low ratings, because one could argue this is in questionable taste. I would have to say the Amiright jury is definitely still out on this one.... I am surprised at the number of hits, however -- almost 100 in 14 hours. Perhaps I could do this OS with a slightly more agreeable topic and hit the jackpot. Stay tuned

Taste eh, who needs it? :-) But it's nothing like as sick as you could have made it. Thanks for finishing this off, I called a hiatus on Supercaliparodies a few years ago.

I've got one more Supercalispoof polluting the inner recesses of my cranium that I'll need to purge; after which I'll probably call a hiatus as well
