The Lyrics

Disclaimer: The satire in this written work applies only to those who mean to do the rest of the world harm through terror and is not intended to defame any particular ethnic or religious group. If you meet the criteria in the parody then you know what you are.


There be a Bedouin with ricin,
On the bubble, out to slay.
I see hearses, wakes; it's frightening,
I see mad crimes dismay.

They're just so bound to fight,
In the ground so ends your life,
From the sand dunes come these guys.

Where is that Al Hussein a goin'?
Crawlin' out of some hot sand dune.
I hear gibber and a crowin',
I hear the rage from this Bedouin.

They're so impolite,
As they over dress the wife.
We, this Bedouin despise.


Scope your shot gunning and tether,
Dope, he's quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in a ghastly fretter,
One guy can make ten thousand die.

Please go and self ignite,
Spare this round and take no life,
Back in Khartoum are his ties.

Lock you a round and fight,
Or just down him with your knife,
Bid that Bedouin demise.

In the hubbub that has limited my amiright time, I can't believe I've missed another important and welcome development...Guy's back!! (And not a moment too soon!!Q) ;D

*Very* clever title switch, and appreciate the disclaimer -- there is too much prejudice already. Well done, Sir. 555mg of nicin' ("nicing"), the icin' on the cake.

Been meaning to tell you since your return, that you were prominently featured in a group tribute during your absence. I don't regard this as a shameless (or shameful) plug, because you earned the high standing among those tributed by your prolific contributions to the site; I'm just sorry that you missed it.

Ribber - How nice of you to visit my page. Yeah I've had a rough time for about six months and I need to be back here writing before I flip out.. Actually it was Tuesday that I came back, exactly 8 monthssince my last post. Coincidentally Tommy Turtle came back on the same day and no we did not plan to do that. Thanks for your review of my satire.

TT - I took a look at that tribute parody that you wrote. What a piece of work! Check your email for a message from me. You may find it somewhat interesting. I haven't sent you email in so long that I hope you still have the same email address.

And yes there is way too much prejudice and I wanted everyone to make no mistake who the target of the parody is. I don't consider it prejudice when you bash an enemy combatant. They will kill us all if they were able to do so. This is all about the bad guys.

Thanks much for reviewing and commenting on this write. Ciao mi compare.

You could do one of your mob related ones to this - I see the mad goon a-slicing

A fine piece of parody craft, as per your usual standard... (and brilliant title switch.) 555

Andy - What a great idea for a parody. I already have 45 parodies with the CCR OS. Why don't you or Townsend take a "stab" at it? Something like this could also work for a Norman Bates parody. Go for it. I like reading the mob stuff as much as I like writing them.

FG - If you really listen to the beginning of that song it almost sounds like my first line in this parody. The same is true of Proud Mary. It almost sounds like "Primary". - Too late I already did "Primary". I swear Fogerty sang with rocks in his mouth. Thanks for your comment.

When the word 'ricin' came to mind, it got me thinking about potato ricin to make hash browns. Anyways, you put up a good fight with this one!
Guy - June 25, 2010 - Report this comment
Christie - I've never heard of potato ricin. To me hash browns involve either cutting a potato into very small pieces or running them through a grater and frying them until they are brown. What is this ricin stuff that is used in the preparation? Anyway the ricin in this parody refers to a protein that is extracted from the castor bean. 500 micrograms of ricin is lethal. 500 micrograms is about the size of a half grain of sand. Eating anywhere from 5 to 20 castor beans is lethal. It's some really nasty stuff.

I vowed to never forget 9-11 as so many Americans have. I write these types of parodies partly to try to remind people of 9-11and to show the bad guys that some of us will not tolerate them. I have gotten death threats over some of these parodies. I thought they were funny. One said in part that "I don't wish to dirt my tongue to talk with you". Chucky G removed the comments because of the hate content. I wish he would have left them out there They made me LOL. So Christie, my thanks once again for your attention to my writings.

Nice. Enjoyed the 'impolite' line a lot. 5's.
Guy - June 26, 2010 - Report this comment
Warren - I think that chorus was inspired about a week ago while I was in a Walgreens™. There were two mid east women in clothing that one would wear here in the winter. Their male escort had on light pants and a tee shirt. The outside temp. at the time was around 93 degrees. It's part of their culture so who am I to judge how they dress in the heat? It was just that image that rolled into my mind while writing this piece.

A friend of mine at work whom I call Geek Girl giggled at that part when I had her read a draft before publishing. I consult her often with drafts before I publish.

So glad you liked it WB. Thanks.

SirGuym here in NocRAL it soon will be fhasionable to dress like a 'nun' in full habit, sir ! . . You can hide a lot under a nun's habit, SirGuy ! a la 'ArabGrab'

AFW - Early to Bedouin and early to ricin. Thanks for viewing and commenting.

Lady of the tiny host wafers - It is definately not a stretch . I once knew a guy who had a fetish for nuns - He had a three nun a day habit.

I don't usually hint about what I'm coming out with but since you brought up the nun subject I have an upcoming parody that will feature nuns. It is nun too serious. THanks again for your support of my habit with satire.

Nice to see you back, Guy. Hopefully your wife is doing OK. Anyhow, onto the subject of the parody, it was well-done and funny, and is a fresh take on the OS. 5s.
Andria - June 27, 2010 - Report this comment
Thank you for asking about my wife. Her worst injury appears to be one of mobility. She has no paralysis but the strokes left her legs very weak. She can walk unassisted for short distances but she has a powerchair and walking canes that she uses when needed. Her mental agility is about back where it was. She still has problems remembering a few words. This is a vast improvement than when she first came out of the fog with her vocabulary. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd rate her an 8.5 for regaining what she initially lost. I have the good Lord to thank for that. She inspired me to write a parody yesterday and also helped some with the lyrics. She improves a little each day. It could have been far far worse than it was. I am now again able to write parodies because her condition has improved and I have most of my sense of humor back. I missed the social networking of this site. It is good to be back and I hope to stay back for a stretch.

And thank you for reviewing my work and putting your seal of approval on it. So many of the writers on AIR have welcomed me back with open arms. This is a good feeling. You've made my day Andria and that is most appreciated.

Yikes! - Andria I put your name where mine should be in the last comment. So sorry for any confusion that any reader may have over this gaffe That's what I get for being up so early on a Sunday morning.

You're welcome. Wheelchairs and canes aren't necessarily a bad thing, and I'm glad to hear that she's doing well. God is a great power, a miracle worker and a good source of inspiration, and I am glad to see you, AFW, Tommy Turtle and Michael Pacholek back in action. Now all we need are blackjack21, OMR and Stan Hall, and we're totally back in business. I'll be writing parodies again as soon as I can overcome my writer's block.
Guy - June 27, 2010 - Report this comment
Andria - Hope your block dissipates soon. My wife inspired the parody and helped me out with the lyrics, so you see that her keen mind has not been impaired. I'm sure some of these authors will return. One can get burned out writing these almost every day. It has happened several times to me. And to quote something John Jenkins once told me - "We all have a love/hate relationship with this site". Ciao piasana.
Guy - June 27, 2010 - Report this comment
Andria - I goofed again. Let me clarify. The parody that my wife insired is the one that should post tomorrow, June 28, 2010.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
