The Lyrics

Congratulations on Number 1,000, Alvin! Welcome to the magic circle!
Some say laughs, they make you quiver
but still, they're what you need.
Some say laughs, fire like a laser
they come so hard you bleed.
Some say laughs, for these we hunger
an endless, aching need.
I say laughs, they're Alvin's flower.
We're thankful for the deed.

It's the laughs, they've been so many
in light on through the dark.
"50 Ways That They've Killed Kenny"
from show that's called "South Park."
"Faded Plaid," but fives ain't fading.
Many plaudits has he got.
At home in bed, the Z's we're catching.
Maybe 'cause... we're numb on pot. *

When the night has not been silly
and you need Amiright thrills
"Bakin' There At Quiznos" still, he
says no, "Don't Mess With Pills."
Just remember that he's a winner
and I ain't talkin' in codes.
Try the songs, you'll find some you'll love
in the works of Alvin Rhodes.
* "At Home In Bed, Catchin' Z's," and "Ain't No Thinkin' When I'm Numb On Pot." The rhythm of this song didn't fit, those words but both the songs and the titles are strokes of genius.

Great tribute to an author I did a tribute to for his consistant brilliance. In fact, I could be talking about either of you there. 555

Had to chime in on the other tribute parody of the day, nice inclusion on the "50 Ways They Killed Kenny", good parody by a good parodist. . .now the question is--is my comment about Alvin or Michael--or both. . .
