The Lyrics

"Quotes That Are Addictive!"

All the old sayings on the tube
They are addictive don't you know
If they're said too much (o-God-no)
They're on the nerves mega big time-o

The ol' "Whazzzzuuup"?! gals on the phone
"Hasta la vista baby!" - yeah!
"Don't have a cow, mannnnn!" o-man
"They fall and then just can't get up!"

Writer types wid'da big paychecks say-

(Chorus)
"Yah- way to go, Go write-a-quote
Oh! big-pay-o, New catch-phrase-Whoa!
Quotes that are addictive"!


The blank mindless ones learn each phrase
They eat it up and then look for more
Stays in their heads o-blah-o
So nit-wits talk like a brain washed bore

The T-V buffs get stuck on "hooks"
Like -"Let's do lunch!" and "Where's the beef?"
Then the buzz words ring! o-boy-o
So cool to blurt a quotation!

All the dudes in the writer's seats say

(Chorus)
"Yeah way to go, Go write-a-quote
Oh! big-pay-o, New catch-phrase-Whoa!
Quotes that are addictive"!

Whistling...lalala

Slide yer tongue up the quotes - let 'em crack!
Shape your mouth then spit them out!
Life's so dull ya know o-yeah-o
So smirk a quote -"Deed I doo thaaaat?!"

So if ya wanna repeat the quotes
"My babies' been eaten by dingos" - Yo!
It's clever verbage?- no-way-No!
Shout it out -"Let's all boy-cott the blow!"

All the Japanese - they've their own
And smarty pants in the Krem-e-lin
And the Chinese go "Oh-AW-SO!"
They all have ethnic quotations

Let's all say - "Go ahead make my day!"

(Chorus)
"Aw No-way-NO, Don't write-a-quote!
Oh! big-dum-o, No more -please-NO!
Quotes that are addictive"!

"Quotes that are addictive!"

It would have been funnier wirhout using God's name in vain...4,1,1

This was really funny 5-5-5.

GodDAMN that was funny! (Okay, it was just pretty funny, but ones for saying "God"? That's harsh. So I gave you fives)
Smurf - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
God??? What the Hell?! Is that a bad word now too? There are so many other more colorfull words that a body could complain about... And by the way, Adagio, God is merely a title - not a name.
Guy DiRito - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
Smurf - Using God's name in vain is offensive to some people, so if you use it expect to get dinged on it. I avoid using it in vain always and for several different reasons. I get dinged on a lot of other things I use and say, so I just roll with it when it happens.
Guy DiRito - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
TJ - Wise up. You look like a jerk with this kind of ranting out here. Keep it up and no one is going to talk to you. Think of what you are doing to the site. Do you do this sort of thing at home?
Smurf - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
Spindler is no doubt one of those fanatical religious types ..you know..the kind that are easily turned into terrorists... watch out for him..
Adagio - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
Guy, I was just going to explain the difference between addressing God, the Father and using His name as a cuss word. You kind of beat me to it. Yes, Smurf, (and Claude), it is offensive to me.
Claude Prez - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
Well, at least you're up front about it. I guess from your point of view one offensive word could ruin any enjoyment of the parody so I apologize; you actually did vote fairly. But Jesus, you're sensitive.
Guy DiRito - October 08, 2003 - Report this comment
No Claude her first name is not Jesus. How can she take your apology seriously after that comment?

Smurf - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
My apologies to any on this site who may take offense at seeing the word God in this parody. But the way that the word was used was not as a cuss word. it was used as an appeal to the almighty that no more stupid quotes should be allowed to be dumped on the public...these buzz words and quote lines are purposely created for commercials and in movies in order to hook folks into repeating them and thereby reminding people to buy that product or see that movie. Basically, It's a gimmick to make money. I hope this clarifies my intentions for using the word GOD in my parody.
Phil Alexander - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Don't let the God squad get to you, Smurf - I'd have thought an omniscient, omnipotent being would have been able to look out for himself (herself? who knows). Though I still haven't been smitten yet (see http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/americanbreed1.shtml for details)
Smurf - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Dr. Phil. I am the kind who will not go down without a fight! That's truthfully because of my German/Irish heritage, but at least I don't use my heritage as an excuse to bash folks like Spindler who have tried to offend me by calling me a bunch of dum names.
Smurf - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
And thanks Phil also so the link. I read your parody and thought it was well written. I also have very strong opinions about this subject. I have very deep beliefs in God and this may surprise some here who maybe thought that I didn't. I was raised as a Christian and still am trying to live within those principals, although I admit I fall short in many ways. Thanks again.
Claude Prez - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Guy--I was apologizing for implying she voted unfairly, not for offending her. This may surprise you, but some people are as offended by religious grandstanding as religious people are by blasphemy. Plus I thought it was funny.
Guy DiRito - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Clause, I fail to see where she was grandstanding if you are indeed meaning Adagio with this statement. She merely commented that this offended her. Grandstanding implies much more than making a statement about being offended. And Smurf has clarified what was meant in the parody and I respect Smurf's declaration of being raised a Christian. I made no bones of the comment other than someone took offense to it. So what I see here is your attempt at humor by pushing Adagio's buttons by continuing to blaspheme the Almighty in your comments is insensitive toward another parody author.
Adagio - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Smurf, I understand your intention now. But the other people saying stuff like God-squad, grandstanding, etc.? No excuse for them.
NOTOFFENDED - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Adagio and Guy--your buttons are too easily pushed and it's getting wearisome--why don't you start up a website for parody writers who are of the very same persuasions as yourselves--you can censor everything that's said.
Claude Prez - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Guy--This place is supposed to be fun. If indeed there is an "Almighty", my guess is "He" would be secure enough to take a joke. It's curious that you and Adagio seem to think you need to protect "Him" from little ole me. Just what is so offensive about someone not sharing your beliefs? If someone wants to engage in public hand-slapping over it, they should be prepared to have those beliefs challenged. Hey, I bet if we really apply ourselves, we could have this discussion go on longer than that Alien Ant Farm fiasco.

Is there any doubt that "Gayme Boy (-me)" = "T.J. Spindler"? The kid never learns. It's time to block his IP address.

hey observer. when was the last time you wrote a parody?
SMURF - October 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Apparently, there is a big idiot here on this site. The intolerance by some of the ideas of others is just sooooo immature and self-righteous and arrogant! I don't think Chuck appreciates those who try to spoil it for others on his site. I hope he blocks Spindler's IP address. This is supposed to be a FUN site. This fanatic is a zealot with blinders on to the rest of the world's opinions and thinking. He thinks that HIS is the only way--- And for those who think they must complain when they see something in print they don't agree with...or bring the score down with a 1-1-1 vote..what jerks! If ya don't like it, is it sooooo hard to just pass on to the next parody??? Well if would make a complaint for everything I saw in the parodies here that I could take offence to - it would be a lot of typing! I have decided not to sumbit anymore parodies to this site. I really enjoyed most of the stuff here and there are a lot of decent folks here, but it's just NO fun anymore. The jerks have ( as usual) spoiled it for others. I have better things to do than fight off imbeciles and their pin-headed opinions and be called obscene names over such a innocent remark. Afterall, all this started with one small reference to GOD in my parody! All this crap is UNBELIEVEABLE. I've had to delete a couple of comments now over this- by a dick who is a huge hypocrite!!! He whines about how he hasn't been to church in four years and tries to tell others that they need to get to church! BOO HOO for you a**hole!!! Run and cry your sissy ass all the way to church and beg GOD for forgivness for all sins your evil deeds!!! :-P And BTW..get some anger management help T J before you pop a vein...

You know what? When youíre ten, your train of thought is the ONLY train of thought. By twelve you grow out of it. I mean, some people donít, but you can tell that they would be great leaders for us all because they donít back down. Unlike our President. Not like smart alecs who try taking peopleís images and bending them how they want. Sure, IP addresses can be blocked. But if TJ goes, I go, and we already have a site. A smurf turns red when you choke it, I guess.

Spindler seems proud of being German. Didn't the Germans have "GOTT MIT UNS" on the belt buckles of their uniforms in World War II? We know how that turned out. Kinda makes Phil's point.

Hey Smurf, I don't know that you should leave over this. TJ really is like ten years old and he's not too hard to ignore. Your votes are good; there are plenty of people here who appreciate your stuff and you're gonna get some ones for all kinds of stupid reasons. You'll get used to it.
Smurf (Sue Murphy) - October 10, 2003 - Report this comment
It's very annoying to be called names just because of a completely innocent reference to GOD. What will be the next word pile of s**t that I will unknowingly step into? And the the next and next and so and so on? Sorry but I just haven't the patience to bother with this dum crap coming at me from narrow minded bone heads. You're right though Claude. This Spindler and his little boyfriend Static are a real pair of childish morons. I hope they do leave this site anyway or get booted. It sounds like Spindler's been pissin' off many others around here too. To Static: You or anyone else haven't choked anyone here. Your comments just show your low I.Q and you've embarassed yourself for all on this site to see. You GAY(me) boys -(me) should stick together and leave. You'll be the ones choking on your own words.

Question-From Peter Line: If you choke a smurf, what color does it turn? Answer: Well, a choking red-faced person turns blue, so isnít it vice versa? Who knows, but maybe it doesnít change color. Just a thought.

Hey there yíall I have one question. Is it not right to stand up for a friend? I didnít take offense to the word God being used in vain; heck, I barely even noticed it. But what I canít stand is that I was being accused of making fun of Smurf; I was actually (again) pointing to Observer and his comment about TJ. So people donít like it, fine. Thereís always gems and clunkers. There. I said it. Now would you get off my back?

Wow. I have to admit, when I came across all the religious back and forth comments, I really expected more than one line saying "Oh God No". I would have never even considered that to be offensive...I don't see it as using God as a cuss word, but I'm not the most religious person in the world either. I've seen things on the site much more mean-spirited and directed at different groups (gays, different religions) that got much less press. Smurf, I enjoyed it. To the people offended, I respect your opinions, but unless I missed something, I did'n't think it was bad.

This started out with a mild statement and an explanation of a vote.

Quote:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It would have been funnier wirhout using God's name in vain...4,1,1

Unquote:

It is what some others did with this comment that is making it so controversial. So I think the best thing to do with these rabble rousers is to just IGNORE them. They seem to feed on the controversy they have started.

Don't let them get to you. 1+1+1 would have been an inappropriate vote. The fact that Adagio paced you at 4 says she was being honest and fair. It was just her opinion and everyone is entitled to that.
Static - October 21, 2003 - Report this comment
time to break the silence...
4-1-1 is NOT a fair vote because 4+1 divided by 2 is 2.5, so it should be a 2 or 3 overall. okay? sorry to pull a rush limbaugh here but it's the truth.
E-G-E-C-T - October 22, 2003 - Report this comment
Excuse me, but I think 4-1-1 is a perfectly valid vote. Who says the overall rating has to be the avrage of pacing and funny? I mean, I have voted 5-1-1 on parodies that I don't necessarily like. I look at the "overall rating" category as whether or not I like the content of the parody.
Static - October 22, 2003 - Report this comment
How Funny is supposed to be for content too. that's how i hear people do it.
E-G-E-C-T - October 28, 2003 - Report this comment
What I meant was, do I like the subject matter or not? I think of "How funny" as, was it funny or not? I interpret the "how funny" category of the misherad lyrics exactly the same way. If I crack up laughing while reading it/them, then I vote high in the "How funny" category.

On the other hand, if I read a parody that has to do with a serious matter, then I'd vote low in the "how funny" category.

'Nuff said.
Static - October 28, 2003 - Report this comment
Why not call the How Funny category the "How Serious" category? Or "How Truthful"? For serious ones.
