Can't really say it matches the pacing, but who cares? If only we could do "If George Carlin Wrote... " but I don't think Chucky would allow all the profanities. Though I did once try "The Lesson of Baseball and Football."

This is untypical of me, but the parody was MEANT to be stupid and fit Q-Bert's character. It therefore does not have to follow conventional style at all since the character speaks incoherent, incomprehensible curse language of its own!!! I watched "Wreck It Ralph" last night and Q-Bert was in it, so I threw this together for FUN only!!!

If I said - Robert D. Arndt JR. plays on a different level than most ....That wouldn't be quite true...He's the Level Knevel of all rhyme.....and seen his share of broken poems in his spare time

Incoherent cursing is the native language of Wyandotte County, Kansas. I speak it as a second language, after Vulgar Slang. High School Spanish is my third language.
