The Lyrics

I've noticed a recent rash of parodies about flatulence here on amiright, so I decided it was time to put things into perspective. Why do so many people get so many laughs from such a stinky, and frankly quite mundane, activity? Probably because it's such a stinky and mundane activity! Sir Frederick Gas lives on......
What's the matter with the spoofs I'm writing?
"Can't you tell that you're such a prude?"
Maybe I should try my hand at old Ray Stevens?
"Well, you need to be a lot more lewd!
You've gotta look at what amiright has brought us,
Lotsa parodies about somebody's flatus."
Everybody's laughin' 'bout some dude gas-passing,
but it's still smells like poop to me.

What's the matter with my sense of humor?
"Can't you tell that it's out to lunch?"
Should I poke some fun at Governor Romney?
"Don't you wanna write the song of the month?
Nowadays you can't be too old-fashioned,
Your songs need to be all about gas-passin'."
Hot wind hijinks, even so, it all stinks,
It still smells like poop to me.

Oh, it doesn't matter what Yankovic is doing,
'Cause we sing about the same old farts.
There's a new fad in town,
But you get the same sound from eating too many pop tarts,
It takes less than average smarts!

How about a pair of hot burritos?
I soiled another pair of pants!
"You could really be like Spike Jones, baby,
If you just give it half a chance.
Don't raise such a fuss about the back-end leakers,
You get more odor from a old pair of sneakers."
Stinkbomb, bad gas, indigestion, dirty ass,
It still smells like poop to me.

What's the matter with the food I'm eating?
"Don't you know that it's way too bland?"
Should I try to stick to the South Beach Diet?
"You gotta think beyond your glands!
You gotta be a part of the new revolution,
All you need to do is create air pollution!"
It's the bad-ass, new rage, gas craze, anyways,
It still smells like poop to me!
Everybody's laughin' 'bout some dude gas-passing,
but it's still smells like poop to me.

Afraid I'm one of the offenders, often singin' scat'. Fine job.

Maybe we just need a diversion from religion and politics.

Fart and body-function humor is at least as ancient as the classical Greek authors of antiquity!

Toilet humor started it all and will always be around, those who do it get flack from those who don't appreciate it, but I can't help it--my top performer is a gas parody, so 555 for you---just make sure you wipe afterwards. . . .

This parody was a GAS! (I can't believe nobody said that before me.) Certainly, Mike Myers and Larry the Cable Guy would like it. Instead of the Order of the Garter, we award you the Odor of the Farter. And why not write a parody about Mitt Romney? He deserves it. And his dad was an old fart, too.

SOTM - I'd hold up a lighter, but I'm afraid that would count as suicide, and then you wouldn't be able to count on my fives. :-)

(SOTM) This gas pass passed muster! 555

(SOTM) (Sung to the tune of another familiar Billy Joel song) What is that smell? You're the Burrito Man... Eat up your beans tonight. And we're all in the mood for some flatulence, and nothing is smelling quite right. Oh, Pppp! Pppp! P-Ppp! Ppppt! Fart! Fart! Fart! Fart! This parody is, in fact, a gas. I ate it up like a burrito. 555

SOTM-Great

SOTM-I must say I am SO happy to see a gas parody that takes on the matter of those who automatically loath it because of it's topic. Oh, and the song you did it too. . .terrifc, bravo. Unlike many of the casual commentors and as I said in my non-SOTM comment, toilet humor has been around since. . .forever. . .It may not be the most creative (although I've read quite a few) but everyone, including Yankovic, has done it at some point. This is getting tougher, with ten parodies to go. . .I've not really eliminated anyone. . .two more tomorrow.

(SOTM) Well, I love this OS...but I have to admit, the pacing was a bit off, and I was sorta hoping it would be a little tongue-in-(butt)cheek. ;) At AmIRight, one shouldn't be so deadly serious, even the crudest of topics can be funny if executed in an intelligent manner! But people who write about farting for its own sake, yeah, that can get old.

(SOTM) Wait, when did Yankovic do a poo parody? I can't remember that one...anyways, great job Michael!

I hear ya brother! I'm also Anti-Poo!!! If I was running for president "No Poop Left Behind" would be on my platform!!!
Red Ant - January 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) This had me laughing from the opening comment ("I've noticed a recent rash...") all the way through the comments left by others. Given the subject matter, I really hope this wasn't tongue-in-cheek...

(SOTM) very funny Mike - good idea and well-executted, and I loved the "Don't raise such a fuss about the back-end leakers, You get more odor from a old pair of sneakers." couplet - perfect OS for the material too - 555
Kristof Robertson - January 29, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Despite the pacing being a tad shaky in places, this was a well written commentary on toilet humour, Michael. My own personal take is that any topic, if done badly or overdone, loses its appeal. But...I enjoy a good bodily-functions parody, and contrary to what you wrote, I believe it takes a LOT of skill to make a juvenile subject funny. 555

(SOTM) What an aroma around this joint! ;-) Loved it!
Phil Alexander - January 31, 2007 - Report this comment
Maybe as a follow-up you could do "Stink Bomb" to Tom Jones' "Sex Bomb"... I think Kristof summed up my view on this (but I'd just like to add that it takes a lot of skill to make a juvenile subject funny other than in a South Park "He said fart! hgg hgg!" sort of way)

I didn't know flatus was a word, so thanks for educating me. I enjoyed "Hot wind hijinks, even so, it all stinks" and the 'leakers/sneakers' couplet the most but you can't really go wrong with fart parodies. Well stated.
wannabemustangjockey - February 01, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - With all the farting, this could almost pass for a lost song from Nickelodeon Idiot (remember the butt references in every '90s cartoon?) It's not my favorite, but it's still good.
