Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Self-immolation:
n.
Deliberate sacrifice of oneself, especially by fire.
..as sung by an uncertain suicide bomber...
[Spoken:]
'Ere, lads... not sure this is such a great idea

'Cause I got self-immolation anxiety,
I got self-immolation anxiety

'Cause I got self-immolation anxiety,
I got self-immolation anxiety

Put on your dynamite and don't be late
Though you'll be late when you detonate

Now I don't say this simply out of fear:
Stayin' alive seems a better idea

But to self-immolate
Ain't a survival trait
No entry in the Darwin 'wards for me - see?

Do my virgins wait
There at Heaven's gate?

'Cause I got self-immolation anxiety,
I got self-immolation anxiety

'Cause I got self-immolation anxiety,
I got self-immolation anxiety

Very clever title here, Phil. I didn't realise immolation included detonation as well. Suicide bombings are (or should be) excluded from all Darwin Awards - intentionally doing something that has 100% fatality rate is... what's the word I'm looking for... well, all that comes to mind is "f***in' stupid", but I suppose that fits well enough. I've got a link that you may find somewhat amusing, reply #14:

Good job Phil! I can't stand these idiots. They take all the joy out of letting US blow them up instead.

very funny Phil - watched the Italian job recently no doubt - goes well with Michael's cockney rhythms - 555

Red Ant - TBH, I'd say that the one thing that suicide bombers do deserve, it's a Darwin Award - but I'd agree 100% with your idea on a right down to the full-scale test training camp for 'em
Rick - Damn right. The US should maybe supply 73 virgins, too - then they might change their mind.
Stu - Yep. Had the OS in my head for days before writing this :-)
