"Tossing Nukes"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

To the brink...
Tossing nukes,
Insanity?
Redline crossed by DPRK
Both sides won't budge,
Kim Jong Un is such a fool,
President Trump falls for it too...

Tossing nukes,
Not pretty,
Guam's a target of the North Korean regime
Trump won't budge,
"Fire and Fury"... from the hip he does shoot,
But WTF is he gonna DO???

Drop the bomb!
Drop the bomb!
Drop the bomb!

From stalemate to a W!!!
MacArthur, we miss you...
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. ~ Edmund Burke

Evil begins when you begin to treat people as things.

Hey Terry, go treat Kim Jong Un with kindness. Give him a hug, and maybe this crisis can be averted, you loony! I have no sympathy for the enemy. Do I have to quote Clausewitz to you, you prissy, liberal nobody? You belong in Pyongyang when it it's either carpet bombed or nuked.Or on Guam, in S Korea, Japan, or included in any N Korean IRBM or ICBM nuke target circle radius. Threats need to be neutralized NOW. You're buddy Obama dropped the ball and diplomacy is a joke with a tyrant. Military action is long overdue and is legal preemptively. A foreign dictator has threatened to nuke both Guam and the Continental United States. He has both the nukes and delivery systems. Pull your head firmly out of your ass.

No one is more evil than the idle war enthusiast who loudly calls for strangers to die in the inferno for his own safety, comfort and entertainment.

History lesson for Terry: Crimes committed by the United States historically: Chattel slavery (African Holocaust), the attempted genocide of the Native American people (small pox blankets murder, and all), the continued terror of the domestic Ku Klux Klan and Southern Whites lynching, beating, multilating, bombing, and assassinating Black leaders and people plus other minorities for another 100 years and more. Same for homosexual and now transsexual people. The rape of 200,000 German women up to and after VE-Day, the torture of the CIA and Gitmo, illegal detentions of alleged foreign insurgents in third party nations (without due process nor trial). The use of child slave labor in Third World nations for American consumer goods, the dumping of toxic and atomic waste in Third World nations, and continuing to consume up to 40% of all the world's products and services to keep us living a materialistic, instant gratification, morally bankrupt lifestyle. Wanna talk evil more? Just say so you ignorant F-ck.

Btw, the Founding Father's were largely occultist Freemasons and many owned slaves. "All men created equal" meant White men from the old countries. Blacks were considered work animals and other races as subhuman inferiors. Gee, sound familiar? More evil...

The evil of others does not reduce or excuse the evil you do.

Evasion noted Terry. It's actually patriotic to support the President and to actively protect your nation... even if that means preemptive strike in the face of a clear and present danger to the United States. You, by comparison, are living in denial and are weak, liberal, and of no worth whatsoever. Granted, that's just my opinion ;-)

Rob - you do realize Terry Pratchett's dead? And while the first comment was an actual Pratchett quote, I don't think the others are. Someone's trolling you.

let me get this straight. This Barney parody has 10 lines which is the minimum required lines. It also has awful pacing errors in it. It' also has a point of view that nobody agrees with. And yet there are 18 high fives for this, which would make it one of the best liked parodies at Amiright. One line has almost twice as many syllables as the Original, but EIGHTEEN people think the pacing is perfect

HH, if I didn't know better, I'd think you were questioning the unimpeachable integrity of the GREATEST PARODY ARTIST IN AMIRIGHT HISTORY. The numbers speak for themselves. It's not His fault your puny intellect cannot conceive of His greatness. Now shut the hell up and let him revel in His hard-earned glory, for He is the Way, the Truth, and the Sh-I mean, Light....wow, this is way more fun than kissing Spaff's ass

Crazed Pule, I'll have to swallow my pride and admit that it is you who are the greatest parody artist in Amiright history. No kidding: I have already e-mailed one of your gems to my contact list. Your comments hit the spot, too, and it's been a long time since my spot has been hit.

Hey now, that's not "Real Sivl" of you to compliment someone else in the comment section of one of The Great One's parodies. Afraid you're gonna have to do some penance; about 20 Heil Barneys oughta do it

Whoa Crazed Pule, "...wow, this is way more fun than kissing Spaff's ass". You seem to have tipped your hat, and what did Spaff ever do to you? ...FAKE VOTES!

Worst. Disguise. Ever. Also, if Spaff exists, He knows why I don't believe in Him.

@ Crazed Pule, I was just curious. Hmmm, ok. (BTW "FAKE VOTES" wasn't directed at you...) I will leave it at that. You will hear no more from me here.
Crazed Pule - August 17, 2017 - Report this comment
Hey, no problem. I have a feeling we're wildly misunderstanding each other here anyway. Just to be clear, I still think Spaff is by far the best AmiRight author ever, and my only regret about saying it so often is that I'm sure it helped fuel the backlash of jealousy that probably caused him to stop participating in the SOTM. Cheers!

^^How about the best parodist ever, CP Unless there's some other parody site out there with 80K parodies that I'm not aware of, this is THE #1 song parody site in the English speaking world. And I'd say Spaff.com best is superior to anything Al Yankovich did -- even in his current YouTube phase. ........ I also think that if you factor in sheer numbers of very high quality parodies, that Alvin Rhodes might be the best
Claude Prez - August 17, 2017 - Report this comment
Well, I'm pretty sure Spaff would love to have a fraction of Weird Al's success. The man is a parody god, and a great entertainer. I do know what you mean, though -- I was pretty convinced Spaff and Lund were headed for the big time. Just couldn't get the video thing figured out, I guess. I like Alvin Rhodes a lot too, but in terms of the really prolific guys here, I'd start with Phil Alexander and Rick Duncan, with guys like Alvin, Airfarcewon, and Michael Pacholek close behind. Just my personal preference though; they're all quite good.
Peter Andersson - August 17, 2017 - Report this comment
Let's not forget Kristof Robertson. Not sure if he rose to the challenge of Spaff, or if his best years simply ran parallel, but for a while there those two were hugging almost all the gold and silver medals in SOTM and when Spaff retired Kristof dominated for quite a while.

Oh, I'm not forgetting Kristof. Or Peter Andersson, for that matter. When I talk of "really prolific guys", I mean the 4-digit club. If we're talking best ever no matter what, Spaff is #1 for sure and Kristof is on a short list of guys who could be #2 for me depending on what day you asked me. Phil would too, for sure.
CML - August 18, 2017 - Report this comment
I think Al Yankovich, in his MTV heyday, benefited enormously by tapping into a general sense of unease about the success of Michael Jackson. All of Al's greatest MTV hits are spoofs of this extremely talented and extraordinarily bizarre character who was being trumped up by the popular culture as if he was the second coming of Christ ..... For example, "Fat" is not a brilliant parody, content-wise; there are dozens of us here who could have matched that. I remember thinking at the time, "I could have written that." But the situation was so spoof-worthy, in that you had this strange, imp-like creature trying to pass himself off as a bad ass, that even a hack job would have been hilarious.
Peter Andersson - August 18, 2017 - Report this comment
The way I see it early Al Yankovich worked on two levels, with the visual at least as important as the lyrics - music videos were a pretty new thing in the 80s, so the impact of heavy rotation on television/MTV was huge, much more so than today (for both original songs and parodies of them).
Claude Prez - August 18, 2017 - Report this comment
Sorry, CML, we're just gonna have to agree to disagree on this one. Just to be sure I googled the lyrics to "Fat" and read them as I would an AmiRight parody....suffice to say, they hold up well. I mean, I get what you're saying, but that sort of talk has always struck me as delusional at best, even when applied to a writer as supremely talented as Spaff. And yes, Weird Al was in the perfect place at the perfect time, but come on. No need to get carried away here.
Peter Andersson - August 18, 2017 - Report this comment
In all fairness (and/or IMHO) Weird Al is now better than ever lyricswise, his latest album was amazing, I still run "Lame claime to fame" and "Sports song" in my car.
