Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Jehovah's Witnesses at my door
Your ideaology is a bore
Don't want to join your dumb cult
Don't trust your crude biblical insult
Why do you tell lies about God
Supporting Adolf Hitler was odd.
Best off if you leave right now,
Don't come in - I will bite like a sow.

Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witness

Jehovah's Witnesses at my door
Misquoting the bible even more
Clad in brown polyester suits
And wearing, black army surplus boots
Don't let them in, I plead to myself;
There's a lot wrong with their spiritual health.
They like to isolate you from friends
Here they come, it feels like the bends

Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witness
Jehovah's Witness

I need to sic a Rottweiler on then
So they will go away
I do not care if it seems so rude
They just get in the way

Oh... Jehovah's Witness
Oh...Jehovah, Jehovah
Oh oh no

Chucky; why do you allow religious attack parodies? This is simply in bad taste and to Tim Hall; you're a sick little puppy and your parody is just plain stupidand totally unfunny. What' the matter? Couldn't you find some dirty sex content to write about or some toilet humour? which are more your speed...

Tim - Nice job. I would hope that we don't get to a point here where certain genres are banned. Steve, I respect your opinion, you voted low and left a comment - please don't request that content be regulated.

They always seem to knock on your door on Saturday morning when you are sitting around in your undies drinking coffee. Must say that this is an accurate assessment of their culture. Great parody.

Freedom of speech is what drives this website and ultimately, the United States of America. This means that Steve up there has a right to his opinion, but so do I and everyone else that submits to this website from all over the world Dont think twice, vote Bush out in 2004!
Bob Gomez - November 19, 2003 - Report this comment
Tim, my applause. This is not an attack, it is satire. By going over the top with your exaggerated descriptions, you have effectively poked fun at a subculture that deserves to be ridiculed for its proselytizing. You nailed this one--or should I say crucified it?--the suits line and the Rottweiler were my favorites. d;:^)

Satire is one of the great forms of writing, Bob. Thank you!

Nothing gets a reaction like "having the appearance" of mocking ideologies. I say that because you don't even have to really do it. That's how Lennon got in trouble. I wanted to dip my toe in that water a few days ago when I did "This God Is My God", and Holy Cow! And mine was directed at the same people as yours. I have found a solution to the J. W. problem. Just answer the door naked. You can even act real interested in what they have to say, and they'll leave.

This parody is simply hate propaganda. This site is becoming a public forum for personal attacks on anything and everything and a showcase for verbally pornographic garbage that I don't what my children to read nor do I want to read. If parodies like this are considered to be "making fun of music" then those who are running this site must agree with the sentiments expressed in it because it was allowed to be posted here. This is the last time I click into this site.

verbal pornography OH GOD! silence this. i mean you cannot allow people to write things i dont like! what is this world coming to when a man cannot tell everyone how to act or talk!! you almost think we were in AMERICA!

"those who are running this site must agree with the sentiments expressed in it because it was allowed to be posted here."--Do you realize what a ridiculous statement this is? Robert said it best but it bears repeating--you voted low, you left a comment, you've been heard and I'd hope that would be enough. No one is going to agree with everything they read (i hope). You can ask for stuff to be removed, I can ask for stuff to not be removed. Please don't remove this; I'd be offended if you did. Good job Tim.
Guy - November 20, 2003 - Report this comment
I agree. Even thought I favor the right, I favor the first amendment more. Steve seems to be pushed so far to the right that he gives the appearance of favoring fascism. These rights work like this:

I have the right to swing my fist. The right to swing my fist ends where your nose begins. We can write or say whatever we like except things like yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theatre when there is no fire. For someone to impose their will to dictate what can and cannot be expressed amounts to the same thing. No one has the right to punish another for their expression, especially when they have not done something like screamed 'fire' in a crowded theatre. I do not see this occurring at all in Tim's parody.

Diva - November 20, 2003 - Report this comment
No one hates Jehovah's witnesses as people. Most think their tactics of preaching are questionable. To go to a persons home uninvited is rude! Religion should be taught by example . Their approch seems as cheesy as a telephone marketing.

I don't get all the hype on this one song about JWs. I wrote one a few month's ago that I called 'Lady Watchtower' and got zero criticism. Tim, I think that Steve person just doesn't like you. :D

Oh, well. If it wasn't for his emotions, this song probably would not have received the large amount of attention that it has.

Hi folks! I am a frequent visitor of this site, eveen thuogh im not much of a parody writer. Let me first clarify that i am not Steve in disguise or anything like that. I do have to agree somewhat with Steve though. This site has become more of a "bashers parody-site" so far I have seen. I know that Chucky do not accept personal attack parodies, but isn't attacking religious groups or personal beliefs actually a personal attack? I am not a JW myself, but i do know some. As a matter of fact a relative of mine is a JW and I do respect their beliefs, as any others. I think they're very peaceful people and they certainly seem to know what they're talking about, actually better than many priests i have hearing while attending church in my own community. So folks don't get to harsh on Steve, He probably wasn't against Mr. Hall in person at all, maybe he felt upset and felt jumped on for his own personal reasons (maybe beliefs). I think there is more than meets the eye here.
Robert J. Pagliaro - November 21, 2003 - Report this comment
Name Witheld: Steve is entitled to his opinion and whatever way he wants to vote. What I object to is his calling for the parody to be taken down. He doesn't have to visit the site, he doesn't have to read a parody that he disagrees with - these are choices he can make. However, by censoring or removing a parody, I am deprived of reading it - by somone else's choice. Placing restrictions on content defeats the whole purpose of parody and creative writing. Freedom of speech means all speech. And, if Steve is interested in stifling creativity, then I am interested in making sure he doesn't.
Busted! - November 21, 2003 - Report this comment
Knowing that a lot of folks here go straight to the latest comments to see what's goin' on ( if anything), I suspect that Tim may have actually started this thread himself and that he's actually the "Steve" who got the fire stirred up in the first place to get everyone looking at his parody. After all , it was the very first comment made on this one. Hmmm...What a cheat tactic! But worked really well Tim! Bravo... ( I have done this kinda thing before myself to pander for votes and see if it worked, so I smelled a rat here)

Ah, like a reverse "1s" guy. I'm convinced the 1s guy is probably a parody writer. Well, it's a theory that I hope is not true. However, if true, it doesn't take away from the fact that the parody was a good one.
Guy - November 21, 2003 - Report this comment
Hey Busted!, how do we know that you even write parody since you are using an alias? Only one who could easily know this for sure is someone with admin privs on the site who can view the IP you are sending from and possibly track you this way if you always use the same IP and/or same box. What you are saying here can only be confirmed by site admin or some cracking technique and I doubt that site admin would tell us anything about who did what, so it's a nice theory but I'm not convinced.
Diva - November 21, 2003 - Report this comment
I don't believe your theroy Mr. busted. How do you plan to prove this accusation of yours? Mr Hall has never been know to be a cheater, or to pad his comments or votes to my recollection.

Yeah and why did CG post what he did above if this Steve guy was indeed TIm? Not likely.
David Chrenko - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
I think Tim is simply attacking the door-to-door approach of Jehovah's Witnesses (OK, and some doctrinal differences.)However, there are a lot of more religion-intolerant parodies, where if you insert the term Blacks or Jews, etc. in place of Christians, Muslims, Morman's or Jehovah's Witnesses - you'll find a lot more opposition to your message. Why is it so necessary to hurt others in order to find material for your parodies? It's no substitute for talent.
Moose - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
No David, I don't think he's simply attacking their approach...he's attacking them with his Rottweiler. That's nasty. I have spoken several times to the JWs and they think that going to your door is the most personal approach they can have. Otherwise why not telemarket their religion and just call people up? But i do agree with you that picking on others (esp minorites) to throw out a parody can be lame and not very clever. BTW David, your parodies are very intelligently written and I always look for your stuff.
Squirrel - November 29, 2003 - Report this comment
Maybe the JWs are aliens. Maybe Busted is Name Withheld. Maybe the 1s guy is a woman, or not always the same person. Maybe Tim is Tom and Larry is Barry. Maybe Gov. Arnold really is the Terminator. Maybe we should move on.

Thanks Moose, To be honest, I was looking for a way to give Tim the benefit of the doubt. In all honesty, I'm taken back by the simplistic behind-the-barn combination of religious and racial stereotyping, school boy sex inuendo, and overall lowbrow comedy I find here. I've said it before, this is a poor substitution for true humor. "Tee -ee -ee, I can say M*sterb*te, and sh*t, and b**bs...ooh, goody goody! My-my, ain't I a clever boy!" Isn't it about time we grew up, invest some thought in what we write, and compose parodies of high calibre, instead of continually wallowing in the mud?
David Chrenko - November 30, 2003 - Report this comment
Should clarify, previous comment wasn't entirely about Tim's parody, but an overall assessment of where we're heading on Am I Right. Tim generally writes very good, smiley face parodies, so it's upsetting to find this one among the gems.

Thanks for the compliment, David. I didn't think this parody would raise this much controversy, but I guess it did.

I know many JW's, I have worked with them and I have talked to them when they visited my home on their preaching rounds. I have found them peaceful people who know their bible very well. They are very consciencious, hard working family-oriented people. And that comment on Hitler is historically inaccurate, Tim Hall should have checked his facts. They were visciously persecuted by the NAZI's and exterminated in their thousands. In fact, I remember seeing a documentary on British Television showing letters of strong protest sent to Hitler by their senior members, warning him that God's judgement was coming on him. The documentary concluded by saying that the Jehovah's Witnesses were the only christian religion in Germany to publicly make a stand against Hitler, while major Christian religions like Lutheran and Catholic were supporting him.

If they were family oriented, they wouldn't shun family members for bringing up doctrinal inconsistancies. >And that comment on Hitler is historically inaccurate, Tim Hall should have checked his facts.

A quote to light up your day. Yearbook Of Jehovah's Witnesses, 1934 p.134 http://quotes.jehovahswitnesses.com/nazi_conciliation.htm The greatest and the most oppressive empire on earth is the Anglo-American empire. By that is meant the British Empire, of which the United States of America forms a part. It has been the commercial Jews of the British-American empire that have built up and carried on Big Business as a means of exploiting and oppressing the peoples of many nations. This fact particularly applies to the cities of London and New York, the stronghold of Big Business. This fact is so manifest in America that there is a proverb concerning the city of New York which says: The Jews own it, the Irish Catholics rule it, and the Americans pay the bills. >The documentary concluded by saying that the Jehovah's Witnesses were the only christian religion in Germany to publicly make a stand against Hitler, while major Christian religions like Lutheran and Catholic were supporting him. Wrong again. http://hometown.aol.com/baronvanc/christia.htm A quote from that site Thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses lost their lives in the camps for refusal to submit to the regime. Many other religious sects, such as the Mormons, non-denominational Christians, and others took an active stance against the regime. Likewise, many within the Jewish community protested Nazi policies despite their being its primary targets. Information regarding these individuals and groups will be posted on this site at a later date.
