The Lyrics

I was in a supermarket the other day and I ran across an instant pasta salad product from Betty Crocker called "Suddenly Salad" And since I really loved the movie "Little Shop of Horrors" and the song "Suddenly, Seymor" (a great spoof of the Broadway showstopper tune, BTW) it shouldn't come as a surprise that I would essay this
(Husband)
Tear up that spice pack, mix it with mayonnaise
Here boil this pasta, drain that water away
Prep me a side dish as cool as the morning
Your salads were teh suck
But now they're OK
Suddenly Salad is there for partaking
It don't take no Einstein
It don't take all day
Suddenly Salad spares your head aching
From sweet Betty Crocker
Salad today

(Wife)
Nobody ever made it so easy
Dad never showed me, Mama was dumb
I'd chop for hours till onions did blind me
Serve it to hubby, and he would down thumb
Suddenly Salad .. is there for partaking
It don't leave me clueless, it don't time expend
Suddenly Salad, it spares my heart breaking
From sweet Betty Crocker
Betty's my friend

(Husband)
Tell me this Caesar's will last until din' time
Tell me the Bacon Ranch is still fresh today
(Wife)
Please understand, that it's still strange and frightening
For a prep cook's who's all thumbs, those kind words you say
(Both)
Suddenly Salad, it satisfied me
Suddenly Salad, it showed me I can
Learn how to be more
The prep cook inside me
From sweet Betty Crocker
From Sweet Betty Crocker
From sweet BETTY CROCKER!
Salad's the plan

Please understand it's all strange and frightening, for an Amiright newbie .. these words that you say :-D. Seriously people (;-D again) I puttered around all week with this before I got it right. I knew that I nailed it cause I was laughing my ass off even as I was writing it. The key was to satirize the underlying premise of this product -- that tossing a salad is just so damn complex and time consuming that you need to have one prepackaged for you

Of course, the fact that my satirical point dovetailed perfectly with the character of Audrey, who was a complete ditz probably didn't hurt

Tossin' salads in prison is a bit different and less complex ;-D
