Original Song Title:

"Superstition"

 (MP3)
Original Performer:

Stevie Wonder

Parody Song Title:

"Euphemism"

Parody Written by:

The Comedian

The Lyrics

Very euphemistic
"Body Count" in war

Very euphemistic
"Shrinkage" in a store

"De-ni-al Of Service"
Hacker clicks a mouse

Real estate that's "Cozy"
Size of a dog-house


When you believe and think,
That what's unpleasant's banned,
Then you buffer...
Euphemism is the way


Very euphemistic
Beggars "Handle Pan"

Rid me of a problem
Hire a "Hit Man"

Wasting time in daydreams
"Chill Out" or "Kick Back"

Laying waste to Baghdad
"Shock-and-Awe" attack


When you believe and think,
That what's unpleasant's banned,
Then you buffer...
Euphemism is the way
Yea, yea, yea, yeah-hey


Very euphemistic
"He underachieves..."

Very euphemistic
"...'cause he has A.D.D."

"Col-la-teral Damage"
"Sleep With", "Fool Around"

"Sanitation Person"
Bad guys "Go To Ground"


When you believe and think,
That what's unpleasant's banned,
Then you buffer...
Euphemism is the way
Hey, hey, hey, hey-hey

Excellent! I have grown weary of all the euphemism in life today. People are just to damn sensative these days! 555 :)

DKTOS, but I know your pacing. This one on "Euphamism" is rather strange after reading one about 'burping a worm'....lol. This was very good. 5's

Initiated a risibility response in my cerebrum, or fucking hilarious!

Anybody who doesn't like this, well, they just inhale -- if you know what I mean. I mean, they're a few fries short of a Happy Meal. And they give off unpleasant odors.

Thank you, Cap'n Pacholek !

So tell me, Johnny, which chapter of Mensa are you in anyway? Another brilliant parody. In fact, let's just make that an official abbreviation - ABP. I want to save some typing time later. You've got a Ken Jennings streak going on here. 555

Thank you, Stray Pooch. Who is Ken Jennings?

I guess this came when you sat and tried to, so to say, fill a cup with new euphemisms for j*zz, not that you probably figure you have Chucky banged to rights about the already existing ones... ;-)

To be euphemistic: this was the best parody ever! Anyhoo, DKTOS and I must say I am proud of the angle you took on this. I must say I was expecting a barrage of purile innuendo, but we all know that you're above that now.

Thanks, alvin, (and thanks for the "Jeopary" info, too).

Johnny, you have acheived 'exceptionally parody gifted' status...

Forgot to add, this is a great improvement over the OS, which always made me want to engage in an involuntary protein spill... ;-)
Johnny D - July 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Merry .... is that "involuntary protein spill" another way of saying "counteralimentation of your former injesta" ?
Meriadoc - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
That is correct Johnny. I stole it from George Carlin, tho'.... ;-)

Geez Merry, you hate every song that I like! And I never know the ones that you parody... Johnny, I love the original, and I love your parody.

Missed this originally, JD...think I was house-sitting for my friend who does not...OOPS...make that ...DID not have a PC or InterNet connection...he does now...so when I house-sit for a month this upcoming June I will be able to get over here with much more ease. Very expeditious work here, my friend...5's...

(ABC-E) I just wish they'd say what they mean so I'd know if they meant what they said. Missed this first time out JD. I think this parody must have been hiding in plain sight.

(ABC-E) A parody on euphemisms from a euphemism expert. Nice.

(ABC) nice job JD
2nz - May 15, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, those euphemisms can get real tiring. As Lewis Black said, "Why do we need a color-coded alert system? Why not just have three alert levels: 'Oh my God', 'Jesus Christ', 'HOLY F&*#'".

Also it annoys me greatly when someone uses 'cause he has A.D.D.' in place of 'he's lazy'. If he's lazy, say he's lazy, and if he's diagnosed with A.D.D. THEN say he has A.D.D. But where was I... 5s JD.
