The Lyrics

When I first wrote this parody, I was faithful to the original song and wrote only one verse. Lifeliver commented that the result was too short and that I should have courageously written two or more verses. I have obliged with a second verse. It tells of the fate of the scientist Giordano Bruno, who was burned at the stake in what is now a bustling, chic open-air market in Rome. A grand statue of Bruno, who audaciously described our sun as a star, marks the spot of the burning.
You’d be so nice to come home to,
You’d be so nice by the fire,
Though the scent of you
Was like barbecue,
It’s your brownish hue
I’d admire.
Over coals in a hibachi,
Rotating on a spit, done to a turn,
You'd be so dark,
You'd be Joan of Arc
To come home to and burn.

He offends God when blaspheming,
He repents now at the stake,
Crowds in terror see
That his heresy
Was an error We
Must unmake.
In the Campo de' Fiore,
Where now a statue stands, Bruno is killed,
He is so charred,
Now he turns to lard
As our Church has him grilled.

Thanks for obliging, Al. People like Bruno deserve commemoration. They changed Joan of Arc from a witch to a saint in 100 years, though she was neither. Had I lived then, I shudder to think what they would have done to me. Maybe somebody's still going to. Hibachi was a nice touch.

LL, I find it amusing that this site will tolerate potty references and cunnilingus, but as soon as black humor (immolation) or religion (even the medieval Inquisition) are mentioned, the folks here seem scandalized. I would strafe them with a parody of the Messerschmitt Bf 109, but instead I am contemplating the G&S Nightmare Song. My subject for this lengthy patter: a man can't sleep because he's plagued with right-wing conspiracy theories. I'd love to know what the Inquisition would do to you, and why. As for me, my cartoons would get me tied to four horses going in different directions.

Cheers, Al. As most contributors here seem to be American, it's only natural that the viewership reflects the nation's social mores, and that includes the political sensitivity of religious faith and those who profess a lack thereof, an issue which is lukewarm at best in the rest of the 'West'.

The key is tolerance. If you can see the POV is ideologically distasteful to you, just move to other parodies, unless it's particularly outrageous. Even then point-scoring won't change much and I think there are other sites better suited to such dialogues.

I think black humor is well-received here on the whole, at least by those who recognize and understand it, the same people who will judge your work on its technical and creative merits rather than its content alone.

Certain issues will always polarize and are unlikely to be resolved in the foreseeable future - abortion, gun control, the death penalty, religious faith, communism vs capitalism to name a few. If you broach one of these, you just have to be prepared to cop the flak.

I wouldn't 'love to know' what the Inquisitors would do to me but I'm sure it would be a fate similar to or worse than yours. For me, blasphemy is a kind of arcane hobby, but I tend to tone it down here. Though I like to draw and sketch, I don't make cartoons, but I'm fond of taking old religious art and putting racy captions on them, posting them on appropriate sites. And one thing I do know is my recently deceased devout mother is not looking down disapprovingly from heaven.
