The Lyrics

More pet food, please.
Eatin' Rover
Come take a bite and you will love it
No leftovers
Just yesterday he was out markin' trees
Now we're eatin' Rover
And now it's our turn to go bite him
Have a toe, there
And pass another rib on to me, please

He's the kind of dog you must eat
When you want some free meat
So now come and get it
You'll never pet it
Used to play around and leave poo
Now he makes a great stew
Better come get it
Now that you've met it

Oh, it's rare and tender, so serve it, so serve it
Have a steak cause he's so much more fetching
Then we'll make ground round
Out of that hound

Eatin' Rover
Come take a bite and you will love it
No leftovers
Just yesterday he was out markin' trees
Now we're eatin' Rover
And now it's our turn to go bite him
Have a toe, there
And pass another leg up to me, please

You're the one that bought that dumb ass
Dug up all the nice grass
You never could make "stay"
Now he's an entrée
Now, I think we need another
Next week comes my mother
And my aunt Polly
Go get a collie

Oh, it's rare and tender, so serve it, so serve it
Have a steak cause he's so much more fetching
Then we'll make ground round
Out of that hound

Now we're eatin' Rover (Yes, we're eatin' Rover)
Come take a bite and you will love it (get a plate for you)
There's no leftovers
Just yesterday he was out markin' trees (no more marking those trees)
Now we're eatin' Rover
And now it's our turn to go bite him (he won't feel it)
Have a toe, there
And pass another rib on to me, please (is there any more to freeze?)

This was just not funny at all. I seem to recall a parody that was posted here last November called "Pig Time", which got deleted from the site because it had subject matter such as this, except it dealt with a different kind of animal. Still, I believe this paordy has a cruel (for lack of a better word) message, and I think it should go.

That parody was by my buddy/ sometime-partner Johnny D, and I believe it is still here. I used his parody to start a discussion of why it is okay for most people to munch away at pigs, but not dogs, especially since they are very equal on the intelligence ladder. If you aoid, are a vegetarian or animal activist, then I understand your objection to any meat parodies; don't read them. But there are certainly hundreds of funny "eatin'" works on this site, and I don't see a distinctive offensiveness to this one. If I had written about eating my wife's beloved pussy, would you have objected?

I'm not an animal rights activist, but writing parodies about eating your pet could make people lose their lunch. I'm thinking that was a double en tendra (however you spell it) that you made in your last comment. Anyways, DKTOS.

Rick - Pass the tabasco, please. Tasty stuff (uurrrppp!), 5's. But I think there is a critical differenece and distinction in your discussion about "edible" animal friends in the comments section. From the parody it looks like you would be willing to share the dog with your friends but you don't seem to make that offer about the pussy. Rather selfish of you...

Hey, aoid, let me ask you something here - not being facetious. What DO you find acceptable, funny and amusing in parodies? Seriously...parodies make fun of stuff...sometimes in ways that one would not in another format. Sometimes writers use it to bring up subjects that people will not discuss in other more "polite" or "politic" venues because the topic deals with a cultural taboo. For instance, discussing celebrities personal quirks and habits USED to be off-limits for the media. I mean totally off-limits (this does go back a ways, but it's true). For instance, many, many people were aware that Rock Hudson was gay, yet it was NEVER discussed in the mainstream press until his announcement that he had AID's. I'm not using that example and saying that it SHOULD have been written about, just that at the time IT WOULD NOT have been. A lot of things are still considered "inappropriate" for "polite" conversation or publications. But that doesn't mean they don't exist. I don't think anyone here is going to read Rick's parody, go home from work today and say, "Hey, honey, I just read this cool parody today about eating dogs. You know, I'll just bet Fido would be absolutely scrumptious if he were marinated in teriyaki sauce, and served over a bed of rice.

People take things WAY too seriously. AmIRight is supposed to be fun, isn't it? Between all of the holy wars, gang wars, and animal rights wars you almost forget that this website is supposed to be for entertainment. Lighten up folks!

Hey, that could be my dog you're talking about. And to think that we were going to kill her for being a pain in the ass, and we didn't even think of eating her! What a waste that would have been.... 555

Are you going to make a korea out of pet-eating songs?
And have you looked at this one (it's one of my favourite Claude Prez songs): http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/bachmanturneroverdrive2.shtml

Phil - not a "korea" but maybe an album? He could call it "Pet Sounds Going Down" ??
Rick D - June 18, 2004 - Report this comment
Phil- yes. You can post now.

Aoid is right, this is not the least bit funny or amusing.

To the person who posted as "Pig time" (on June 17th at 6:41:57): that parody is called "Snout" and is a parody of the Tears For Fears song "Shout." The one I was referring to was a parody of "Big Time" by Peter Gabriel. I know for an absolute fact that that one is gone.

I probably should have said this a while ago, but I do agree with what YWN said in the first sentence of his comment.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
