The Lyrics

"Super Size Me".... Yeah, that's exactly what that food does just as Morgan Spurlock...
The warnings live on of those cheeseburgers downed
In the film that they call "Super Size Me"
That food, critics said, well, it may make you dead
With the pies, and the burgers, and smoothies

With a load of lard stored, 26,000 kilos or more
Thus the Ronald McDonald weighted heavy
That fatty fast food, had a bone to be chewed
So a guy who's named Morgan came gnawing

That food made us wide all the Americans whined
Starting back with some grill in Wisconsin
As the big people go, we were bigger than most
With our food, and drink fountain well seasoned

Excluding the germs of the Happy Meal firms
Well, they weren't fully happy, but peeved man
And later that night down Spurlock's fangs
Could it be the heartburn he'd been feeling?

The fat bought by buyers made their arteries impound
And a wave of nausea they're spraying
And every man knew, as Morgan did too
Twas the glitch of the Mickey-D's slaying

The spawn of new date, with the breakfast on his plate
With the tail of some hog in McMuffin
Soon the afternoon came, and he binged again
Stuffed his face with the fries like they're nothing

When suppertime came the main cook made a wreck
Serving fellas "though quite tough to feed "em
At 7pm the bad gassing waved in
Due to Big Macs and the Fries of Freedom

Then Morgan wandered in he had hunger once again
Though his doc said, "Your health is in peril"
And later that night, his scale gave him a fright
Thus the wreck of the Ronald McDonald

Does anyone know where the creatures God chose?
When it comes to the food Chick McNuggets?
Researchers all say they still look to this day
Yet they can't find a bird in these targets

Morg might have thrown up with his stomach capsized
He might be a creep wanting slaughter
Now all that remains of past traces and remains
Of his life are his buns and hamburgers

Now Morgan "rolls" superiorly
Thus the ruins of McDonald's contraption
Size 28 jeans were a young man's dreams
Now ice creams, and pies are for Morgan

The point of this show? Hell, I dunno
Take note that fast food won't surrender
As the war of food goes, the dieters all know
They're impaled with hamburger dismembered

In a medical hall in Detroit he laid
At the Suppertime Healers Hospital
The heart buzzer whined, keeping Morgan alive
Weird, This man didn't sue that McDonalds

The warnings live on of those cheeseburgers downed
In that film that they call, "Super Size Me"
Superior it's slays never gives up till dead
With it's pies, and the burgers, and smoothies

It wouldn't be an official Edmund Fitzgerald parody if I didn't at least comment. A few mistakes, but some of the puns were atrocious enough to cover for them. (Come to think of it, I'll have to remember the word "atrocious" the next time I write one.) Five all-beef patties.

Excellent work, Matt. I try to watch that movie once a month just because I eat better for a while after I watch it. But my personal life aside, excellent use of the original in here. That's some serious attention to detail. TMGLTM, but "With the tail of some hog in McMuffin" and "Starting back with some grill in Wisconsin" were inspired.

Captures the "flavor" of the OS well. You deserve a break today: 555
Matthias - March 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks; AFW, PD, SH, JB, AR, Cat, SM, MP, 2nz, and TT.... glad you enjoyed it... Glad you actually saw the original film must be a pretty popular film... May you all stay healthy and far away from Mickey-D's

I have to second pretty much all comments except Step-chans (I do KTOS). You had 5s just with the title, the rest was great too. ;-)

This is high-calorie humor. You should look at my "Too Much Cholesterol At Breakfast-time", but this one took more work.

(ABC3) Funny stuff, a little too much poetic license on the rhyme schemes for me.

(ABC3W) Nice skewering of the fast food industry, Matty. I've seen the film and havent been into Mickey D's since. Burger King, on the other hand...;-) 555 p.s: My security code for this post is KFC...honest!

(ABC) A pleasure to revisit after all this time! Oddly poetic for the subject matter, and I liked how it kept the slant rhymes of the OS.

They once found a Ronald McDonald "statue" on the side of the Highway near where I grew up, ditched like a mexican drug war victim or something, so the cops called the local MDs (both of them)... but theirs weren't missing. One week later it was revealed that one was missing in a town 800 kilometers north. To this day noone knows how it got south and why it was ditch in that particular ditch (except for the perps I guess).

Love the concept, and some very tasty lines, but a little more time spent could have made it flow more smoothly. Still, pretty impressive work for the Matthias of 2006.
Blaydeman - June 27, 2011 - Report this comment
(Artistry) A little choppy in some lines, and other lines were perfectly paced and pretty funny, and I realize you've come a long way since this was written, so great job!

I don't know, it didn't help that I disagree with the content (I don't believe its McDonald's fault that people don't know when they've stopped, I eat McDonald's and I'm not "Super Sized") but I don't know, the original song and content just wasn't terribly funny to me, though you did a much better job rhyming than I did. . .which is why my parody of this AmIRight loved song isn't in this contest. . .Overall 545, it is a good parody, even if I don't agree with the opinion presented and was far from convinced that someone eating at McDonald's far more than a reasonable person would represents what McDonald's does overall, all food is okay in moderation I truly believe that.

(Artistry) A fair amount of the wording here confused me, so this wasn't as funny to me as I was hoping. Still good, worth 5's, I just didn't get bits of it.
Syncronos - July 05, 2011 - Report this comment
Wow...this is a good read. I share the same sentiment with B.A.D. as far as Super Size me is a crock...but I KNOW a guy like Morgan, so this struck me as kinda funny. Have some 5s with that, Matty
