Song Parodies -> "Hyperlink"

Original Song Title:

"Yesterday"

Original Performer:

The Beatles

Parody Song Title:

"Hyperlink"

Parody Written by:

Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

"HTML" = "How's That Muthah Look?"
Hyperlink
'Cause too many footnotes make it stink
Neater reader "meter made", methink
No more: foot-note
Just hyperlink

Suddenly
Red Ant jumps; dumps lumps from rump on me
Blasts fell: "My Shell's"" "footnote-ocity"
Not cosset, he:
Verbosity

De-... -fi-... -nitions, lead;
We can read, while footnotes shrink
Cite ... songs; ... other work;
"Click-ly" lurk
In hyperlink!

Easily:
Shift, left bracket, "a," space, "h-r-e ---
-- f", Then: "equals, quote", "h-T-t-p..."
Paste URL:
Ctrl + V

Close ... quote ... angle right;
Paste on "Site name": name of site;
An-... -gle.... bracket left,
Front slash, "a", then bracket right!

Hyperlink
It saves time, space, and, if printed, ink
Always underline in blue, not pink
Now, you're "'N Sync"
With hyperlink

Blink and wink, a hy-per-link

5s just for correctly fitting into the song (pacing, rhyming) how to construct a link. I guess I thought incorrectly about hyperlinks being allowed in the parody field: until the last few from you the only ones I had seen were internal (i.e. AmIRight URLs) links for completed parody albums.

What Red Ant said, I thought there was a script or something like that to stop links to spam, or political sites, or porn, or stuff like that. I mean, just imagine what parodies from William Tong or that Linda Whatshername would look like if they had links to facts or what they consider to be facts supporting all their this and that in every line. Or my Star Trek parodies. Hmm... come to think about it... maybe it's time to get really nerdy! :-)

Red Ant, Agrimorfee, alvin rhodes, Dee Range, Peter K1, thanks.... Rex, I don't know how to create style sheets... still learning this stuff myself, as per bio that should post in a few days... Adagio, AFW, Stephen Harrington, John Barry, carol, thanks.

Everyone, when I first got here less than three months ago (seems like a lifetime! lol), only the "bottom comment" (or "outro") section of a submission allowed links, so that people could link to their own website, etc. There appear to have been software changes recently, allowing links in top comments ("intro") and in the parody itself. I noticed this and started using it in my submissions posted since Monday of this week. I emailed ChuckyG that I thought it was a huge improvement, for the reasons given in the above parody, and that I hoped it would not be a problem.

Can we "self-police" and commit cyber-cide on anyone who misuses this valuable new tool in the ways that Peter K1 mentioned, i. e. spam, commercial (profit-making) attempts, porn sites, etc., so that we don't lose it???

I believe that the "comments" box for others to comment on youir parody allows links inside AmIRight.com, which is cool, and not outside, to prevent spambots from using it, which is also very cool. Legitimate references by us illegitimate Righters lol can be done like this: ht**tp://www.whitehouse.gov, where the reader copies the URL, takes out the **, and pastes into browser, or like this: 3w.whitehouse.gov, where you have to pass an IQ test to paste into browser.

Kudos to the best Webmaster in the world (ChuckyG, of course), for continually evolving this site to keep getting better and better.

Correction: the "voter comments" allows you to quote a URL from AIR, like this: http://www.amiright.com/parody/authors/tommyturtle.shtml, but not to create an actual HTML hyperlink.

Clever, 555, but what about a self-referential hyperlink? Time for Mobius to disrobe.

Chucky G put one on my name after the song name. You missed the grand announcement, "A Bio, Please". ... http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/bobbydarin22.shtml
In addition to that bio, there is a website with pics at geocities dot calm slant tommy the dancing turtle.

A burlesque-y dancer, a pip
Named Virginia could peel in a zip
She read science fiction
And died of constriction
Attempting a Möbius strip.

Johnny D, I forgot to put your name in my previous reply, in case you don't check back here (Why wouldn't you? Got a real life, or what?) but see the last 3 days' comments, or Google or whatever.

BTW, I just Googled your nick as I wrote that, and you came up on the first page out of 605,000 hits. How cool is that???
Andria - April 20, 2009 - Report this comment
I liked the parody and the highly original subject matter, although I doubt I'll ever need to put a hyperlink into one of my parodies unless I need to put an audio or audio/video link to an OS if I do a parody of an obscure OS. (Probably the most obscure OS I've ever parodied was "Fallin' In Love" by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, which is well-represented on Youtube and occasionally played on oldies stations and regularly on the Music Choice 1970s channel but is not nearly as well-known as, say, the OS of this parody.) BTW, I couldn't get onto the site Larry linked to. w w w dot andriagivesyou5sforthisexcellentparody dot com.

Andria: Who says turtles are slow? Why, I replied to your very kind comment in less than a year! So, there! ;) ... lol.           Seriously, thanks for reading and v/c-ing this three years after it posted, and for the nice v/c.

I do hear "Fallin' In Love" by HJFR occasionally, but that's because I'm locked onto the oldies channels. ... Larry's site was taken down by the FTC for having sheep-pawrn, which is why you get the 404 error:

but *your* site is great! So, www.tommythanksyoumuchly.com, not to mention the real site,

Thanks for the nice reply... I have been hearing "Fallin' in Love" more often since '09 now that one of my local radio stations has been playing more 70s pop on their HDRadio channel (I have been getting to hear HJFR, Alan O'Day, Jennifer Warnes, Starland Vocal Band, and lots of other good underrated artists along with more common 70s/80s pop songs), and I have been working on a two-part parody of a VERY OBSCURE 2-part OS ("Schlock Rod, Pts. 1 & 2" by Jan & Dean) about curb-stomping.

I like how educational you can be with not very much song to work with. That's way harder than you make it look. Well done TT. This should be mandatory for those who submit here on a regular basis.
Tommy Turtle - March 31, 2012 - Report this comment
Glen S: Very fine compliment, thanks. ... as for "mandatory", some have complained when parodies have *too many* links -- like, say, this one:

http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/marymcgregor1.shtml

Also, have since been asked by ChuckyG not to put *off-site* links in the parody lyrics themselves, but only in the intro and outro. Links to other AIR songs are always cool, of course! ... Thanks for v/c.

Could you do one about special characters? I used to keep an ASCII chart on my wall, but haven't had it for years now and completely forget how to make them... ;)
