Please vote and comment on THIS version of "The Prion Sleeps Tonight" , not on the other version which I will be asking ChuckyG to delete, thank you ..................................... BSE = Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy = "mad cow disease" .... CJD = Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease = the human version of "mad cow disease" ..... "prion" (pronounced the same as "lion") = the protein that is currently thought to cause both BSE and CJD.

Johnny, you're lucky that I just finished reading a fabulous book about a prion that causes a world population threatening epidemic... or i wouldn't have felt close to smart enough to even read this. but since i did...and since i get it...there is nothing for me to do but to give you all 5s...great job!!!

All 5s SOMEBODY's got wayyyyyyy too many IQ points around here...ever think of sharing some? Nice job. The song doesn't offer a lot of leeway...so you've got to say a lot in a little space...and you did. Good job.

SNL, if it wanted to be funny, could use this on the Weekend Update...I mean, if they REALLY wanted to be funny....

I shoulda steered clear of this one. There's more than one definition of "bad taste"!

There's no bull in this parody. Excellent job, JD.

While some call it a "PRY-on", others call it a "PREE-on"...it's kinda weird, one of those toMAYto/to-MAH-to things. I chose "PRY-on" though and thus give your parody many props.
