The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
There on the stovetop, a ribbon of black
Right where I spilled easy cheese and mac
I cut my finger but it's almost healed
Trying to get the carrots peeled
The french-fried potatoes went up in a flash
There was nothing left but an unedible ash

My taster sighs at my pork-n-bean pie
My tries are twisted, just a cooking misfit, I

Smoke is pouring from the oven, it seems
You cry a warning, I ought, I ought to do something
I grab a hot pad and pull out my scones
They've turned to charcoal and hard as stone
So did I mention, I'm learning to fry
I'm so confounded but determined to try

You gag and cry from my roast ferret thigh
My tries are twisted, just a cooking misfit, I

You want to ban 'em, say my wings need a prayer
Cooked up in Karo, they make you flail and they make you swear
You say no more but I will always try
Come by tomorrow for a bubblegum fry*
My roasted kitten is a real delight
But you say no and call my food a real fright

There's no sensation to compare with this
My culinary rations, they all get dissed

Please won't you try my grilled tsetse fly
My tries are twisted, just a cooking misfit, I

* One of the featured foods at this year's State Fair of Texas is fried bubblegum. I kid you not.

This sounds like my own "learning how to cook" days.

Those are some pretty nasty combinations. Fried ferret, fried kitten, fried tsetse fly, FRIED BUBBLEGUM?! I actually want to try the last one. Well done. You passed with "flying" colors.

This must be the same guy who was cooking in my "Just What Have I Eaten?" (/shameless self plug!). Lovely rhyme subs throughout.

(Artistry) After reading this I got really hungry. So I sampled a pu pu platter of all the delicious delictables you listed in this parody. HAHA! Fried ferret was SCRUMDIDLEE-UMPCIOUS! Awesome job!

Uh . ..Yeah, fried ferret and fried kittens, ferrets and flies are all pretty nasty, but it was actually fried gum that made my stomach turn. . .the odd thing here is as strange as it is, America has been on a 'fry everything' kick for years and its only getting worse. Fried pickles, fried ice cream, fried Dr. Pepper, fried pigs butt---all of these I've seen first hand at fairs, restaurants or others. . .but fried bubble gum, that's just gross. . .believable but gross :)

(Artistry) It's not easy, this cooking thing, is it? My bro cut himself making tinned spaghetti, for cryin' out loud! Still, this parody was most delectable, my compliments (and 5's) to the chef!
