Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

If you're going to ban canned Crisco
Be sure to wear Canola flowers in your hair
If you're going to ban canned Crisco
Cholesterol won't lead you to despair
All those who come to ban canned Crisco
Summertime will be a lard-in there
In the streets they've banned canned Crisco
Shortening won't be long once you do compare

All across the nation
Healthy lubrication
Keep hearts in motion
Here's a recommendation
Monounsaturation
We like canola
Make mine Mazola

All those who come to ban canned Crisco
Be sure that oil is used in your cookware
And once you've gone and banned canned Crisco
Dropping fatty acids will be the turn-on there

Procter and Gamble sold off Crisco to another company, so they no longer manufacture it . BTW, interesting juxtaposition of San Francisco and Crisco, especially when it applies to the Castro District.

Don't forget the Crisco kid - he was a friend of mine, but cholesterol did him in. Nice parody Michael. This one is well oiled. Your cholesterol count is 555.

Very good title, Jan! "San Francisco" = "Ban Canned Crisco", yeah!! Good job. I like yours, and I actually did a similar parody awhile back:

The parody was only worth fours, but the title is a five and a half.

I take it PAM and Crisco are American brand names for cooking or stir fry oil? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong or enlighten me further if I'm just near.
