Parody Song Title:

"Shit Power!"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

A paean to the Science Museum's attempt to use what's left behind by their millions of visitors in fourteen toilet blocks every year - use it to generate electricity.
Shit power!
Generated from fourteen toilet blocks
Excrement rocks!

Then transmit power
Power that's oh, so brown, it's green
An eco-wet dream

The sign on the loo will invite you in here
They'll love it yet more if you've got diarrhoea
For instead of pouring it down the drain
They will make methane, it's

Shit power!
Converted in microbial fuel cells
To cut down their bills

The Science Museum don't charge you a fee
So go and help them make electricity
Cut down on chemicals, water and bleach
Practising what they preach

Yes, it's shit power!

Produced from your shit!
Right... no shit

Bad parody! 0-0-0!
Phil Alexander - April 12, 2005 - Report this comment
OK, Mr Potty Mouth - tell me: why is it a bad parody? Because it mentions the word "shit"? which even you'd have to admit is in context under the circumstances. Or could it be that you saw that word in the title and didn't even bother to read the parody?

Actually, I produce a lot of crap from going to Outback right here in America. Outback Steakhouse, that is. I tell ya, if I could take the coconut shrimp from outback, the salads from Ruby Tuesday, the steaks from Charlie Brown's, and the desserts from Old Man Rafferty's (a non-chain restaurant here in New Brunswick, NJ), I'd really have something.

Phil: On behalf of Mr. Potty Mouth, I think it is a bad parody because it uses an uncensored swear word. That kind of thing should be banned on this site.

What I find interesting is the power some folks allow mere words on a page to have over them. It is not as though the author actually dropped a load upon your person, you know...and I know of many people who lead good, productive, moral lives who happen swear...there are times when swearing can be considered inappropriate...mostly because it is being done or used as a matter of intellectual laziness...not taking the time to look up or think up a correct descriptive term. When "Sh*t" is part of the story-line or idea the author is trying to project or describe it seems to me that avoiding it or using a euphemism is rather pointless...You have a point to make and this is the word that most directly describes your point to the reader EFFECTIVELY...what is the problem with that? BTW, I'd like to thank the latest complainer for pointing out this nice piece to me. If you actually READ Phil's work here it happens to be an interesting and quite informative, positive piece of work. Based on Science...Just think of the awesome untapped potential if excrement could actually be turned into a viable and usable energy source. For example, wouldn't it be wonderful not have to kow-tow and dance around with all those Middle-Eastern Tyrants and Theocracies in order to satisfy our endless energy needs and desires? I'd make a daily "loo" donation towards that goal...sign me up, man...Good Sh*t, Phil...keep it flowing...5's ~ ~ ~

Yes, but sh*T is a naughty word. I still think it should be prohibited. Sorry if you think I complained; it was worth it.
Phil Alexander - July 29, 2005 - Report this comment
As I tell my children: there is no such thing as a word which is of itself naughty, merely words used in such a way as to be naughty (or offensive, etc). Your monicker to your comment is a classic example of a pointless euphemism: how can the word "Dick" be considered offensive when, in context, it's somebody's name? You can't try to ban a word you don't like in all contexts in which it could possibly be used. Face it: shit happens.
Paul - Thanks :-) I kind of like this one, for much those sorts of reasons. It's sad that there's some people who can't read past the first word, and judge it based on their prejudice. But, hey, it's their loss.
Penis Van Lesbian (Dick Van Dyke) - July 29, 2005 - Report this comment
It used to be autocensored on the messageboard. The name "Dick Van Dyke" would always come out as "dip van ****" even though Dick is more commonly a nickname for Richard than it is a derogatory term for penis. I'm sure that if I used the "report inappropraite comment" link on your comment, Phil, and typed "cuss words" in the message box, then Chucky G would be more than happy to remove it.

Saw this on via the plug in the political section topic I started. Love the OS. I couldn't get some of this to scat, err, scan, but overall a "solid" parody. "Converted in microbial fuel cells": human waste is often broken down by digesters: basically, they are big tanks which are heated and recirculated so that all the harmful elements are organically broken down, and of which methane is a by-product.
