"Thread-jacked"

The Lyrics

If you've ever seen dozens of comments to your parody which have NOTHING to do with the song or the original artist...personal chatting and debate that goes off on an endless tangent...then you've experienced a "thread-jacking" here. This is dedicated to all the parodists who are as tired of being thread-jacked as we are. (P.S. We're not actually calling Arwen a fool, just using that line as an example of the abuse that sometimes turns up in a comment!)
If you see a parody on the site that you wrote with 'bout 15 comments in one hour...Threadjacked!
I'm headin' on to my paro-day....my comment thread, ran away
It's gone pretty far--yeah, the topic derailed
It's been thread-jacked
A comment last hour, now a hundred and twenty!
They're piling up now; I don't think it's funny!


I'm thread-jacked, it's a waste of my space when they talk s**t together!
Thread-jacked, save me...thread-jacked, save me...
Please save me...from what I get
Please save me...from what I get

Posts say, 'Arwen's a fool, cause cheese rules':
Yeah, it's thread-jacked
Well, I can't turn back when they're way out in left field
it has just been threadjacked and I can't get it back


Chatter 'bout The Matrix
Chatter 'bout the highways
Chatter 'bout the Flintstones
Chatter about Amway


I'm thread-jacked, it's a waste of my space when they talk s**t together...
Thread-jacked, save me...
Thread-jacked...that's what I get
Yakkin' and a chattin', yammerin' and mumblin'
sayin' next to nothin'
Now they're talkin' bout plumbin'
Hey, who's Jack Jimmy--hey, who's Jack Jimmy?
Goofin' around and around
Everybody's mooin', what the heck they're doin'?
Save me...
Posts rackin' up onscreen, scrollin' on down...
Everybody's mooin', what the heck they're doin', save me...
Freakin' thread's been jacked, freakin' thread's been jacked


Log on the site--sure, the threads are derailed, I can't make head or tail
A comment last week, now three hundred and twenty!
Please hurry, Chuck--delete them, it's not funny!

Five-five-five--oh, no more? Save me!
Page is getting crowded--save me!
Five-five-five--oh, no more? Save me!
Say what, you goof?...Busted!

Thread-jacked! Save me...thread-jacked!
Just save me...from what I get!
Mumblin' and a grumblin'.......yammerin' and ramblin'
I've been thread-jacked!

This was pretty good. I expected something a little different when I read the title, and was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong. Good job. And, of course, Cheese rules! =)

Yes, this was good and all that...555 etc etc....but what I REALLY want to talk about is my cat, Delores...only kidding; great job!

555! This parody is brilliant, you two! Well done! Now let me tell you about how I still need to get my electric lawnmower fixed, and how I need to replace the Brita filter at my kitchen sink at home, and how my brother likes pugs, and how Walden Pond is overrun with chipmunks this year, and ......

I went to the comments, and of course left no name;So nobody knows who to blame:In the comments, they just can't figure your name, and sometimes I think it's a shame. Na, na, na na na na, na na na, na, na. 555 for a great take on a personal peeve.

Funny! There was a parody Jake did awhile back - ended up with maybe 3000 comments, they were pretty funny tho' if you had the time to wade thru them.... :-)
Jared - October 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, Merry.....I remember the "wedding plans"...that's the ultimate case of threadjacking, and one of the cases that inspired this parody.

Irritating? Inspirational? Heck, the only way I could clarify this is to drift off onto intangible tangents... ;) Loved the parody and selfless plugging of

I mean, really, you didn't have to go and quote
http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/ rickymartin14.shtml
as the straight-jacket of thread-jackedness.

By the way, http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/rickymartin14.shtml is currently on 459 random comments. If you'd like to bring that up to a round 500, I swear to end my ploy to woo Arwen with the impressive length of my threads.

Oh don't do that, Luke...you're so very close to having me 100% wooed!

*pumps fist in the air!*...literally. I'm so lonely I have an inflatable fist. *cringes*
Arwen - October 28, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL! Luke, you are hilari...

Oh DEVIL! Do you realize what we're doing? We're defiling the comment thread on the song that vilifies comment thread defiling! OH, the irony! Perhaps we should chat on the TOTTM.

You're right. We really should do that. We really REALLY should.
