Song Parodies -> "Kris Is Absurd"

Original Song Title:

"Grease Is The Word"

Original Performer:

Frankie Valli

Parody Song Title:

"Kris Is Absurd"

Parody Written by:

Stuart McArthur

The Lyrics

sorry mate, but somebody's gotta tell ya (and to the tune of this OS no less) - oh, and Chucky, this of course is an affectionate roast, in the manner to which Kristof has become accustomed
I read his parodies with sheer delight
I like the...way he thinks, it's kinda not-quite-right
The way he takes his stories way too far
his little details are...so very pe-cu-li-ar

Kris is absurd

He writes about canaries quite insane
oh wait, was that his hens? (I must read it again)
and Kristof seems to think that monkeys bluff
and that Tarzan's depressed - and that his dates have handcuffs

Kris is absurd
(he's absurd, yes absurd is the word)
he is clearly crazy
Kris is a genius, mad as a hatter
who uses the term "whoopsadaisy"

[instrumental]

He writes of polyglots on Aer-o-flot
and of the singing class - es that he gives his dog
I guess it's usual to have bubblebaths
but with Cameron Diaz?
(he doesn't do things by halves)

Kris is absurd
(he's absurd, it's inferred in his words)
the full parody parcel
Kris is an Aussie - it's obvious 'coz he
can "couplet" Newcastle and arseh'le
he has a dog he calls Lendl......AND a sans-meat,
Calvin-Kleins-wearing Ken-doll
(do-ya-see WHAT I mee-ean?)


It's not too sunny In Vermont, okay
which, for a Wagga boy, would make him stay away
I guess the cloudiness would make him morose
like watching Arnie shag
Maria Shriver I s'pose

Kris, you're absurd
(yes, absurd - it is SO SO the word
...in the nicest of meanings)
mate, you like strippers
from Mars, and oddsbodkins
and Tina (when she's trampolining)

(instrumental)

Where are you head-ing, Pinocchio's wedding?
you SURE you're invited?
maybe the friction (you walk with restriction)
has made you get over-excited

Kristof's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd
he's absurd

Hey Stu, I think this is a really good parody! Nicely done. But uhm... I do believe TOS is simply titled "Grease". You still get a perfect 5 5 5 from me.

Was that all you could come up with? Sheesh....;-) Joking aside, I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with this, mate; funny, incredibly well written and sadly, mostly true. And boy howdy, did you do your research! You referenced parodies that I can barely remember...once you get past 200 they start blurring together....btw, I prefer the term "psychiatrically special" to "absurd", for future reference. I'll finish off with a stereotypically Aussie "BONZA!" 555+++

yes it does, Matthias - round 62 - thanks :-)

thanks Rick - hmm, good point, Kris Kringle is quite absurd as well - bit of a toss-up over who's absurder

thanks AFW and alvin - too true, and proudly

yup, 2Eagle, ya got that right bruther ;-)

I know, Song Title cop - sorry - and thanks for the 555

glad you liked it KR - I had a bit of fun trawling thru your old stuff - an excellent way to brighten the day - I recommend it - and whattaya mean "mostly"? (the exceptions being?) - and you say "psychiatrically special", I say "blandnessly challenged"

Well done, I'll have to go back to Kristof's webpage and check out some of the references. Good song choice.

Excellent (polite) roasting of Kristof, Stu. Lotta research here. 5s
Stuart McArthur - August 15, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks Jeff - it's a bit like heading off into one of those spooky Disneyland theme rides
Stuart McArthur - August 16, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks Red - polite? d'oh!

(I just can't get seem to get this nasty thing happening)
Red Ant - August 16, 2006 - Report this comment
After seeing Lisa Lamponelli roast Jeff Foxworthy, this is "polite". If you went her route, you would have gotten a rejection from whatfreaks (RIP), or set a new record for "most asterisks used in a parody".

LOL!

FYI - 2Eagle is a below par golf handicap.
Stuart McArthur - August 17, 2006 - Report this comment
ah, so (and this stuff intrigues me) it was either "2*below par =*Eagle" - or it was named after your exclamation at a 4-par, when you chipped in for 2, and cried "2! Eagle!" - I'm hoping it was the latter ;-)

(ABC) A parody about one of my favorite parodists by another one of my favorite parodists!

(ABC3K) See above, and I enjoyed the "Newcastle and arseh'le" line more this time around.

Hmmm, never thought of this idea, mate: a parody in which the writer lampoons himself.----MM
