Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Black Pudding is a traditional sausage made from blood & other bits (you really don't want to know *which* other bits... trust me on this), but can be really tasty just the same.

There are many different versions to this OS, but Etta James' has the advantage there's not ten minutes of trumpet and some words put in as an afterthought... and as I believe it's out of copyright, I've put the one I used here
Not made from the finest cuts
But, no "but"s: blood and guts
Buy my black pud
Oh, so tasty, spicy 'n' hot
Sugar is sweet, this is not
Buy my black pud
All those icky bits no one will miss'll
Be included: blood, fat, guts and gristle
Bread or barley, suet or oats
And anything that comes from goats
Black pud! Buy! Buy!

[Swingin' solo as the pud sizzles in the pan]

E-e-e-ecky thumpers use it for martial arts
It causes farts.. and dodgy hearts
Buy my black pud
Black pud has a unique taste
Made from all that bloody waste
Buy my black pud

No one compla-ai-ai-in that it's too icky
You'd better not eat this if you're *that* picky
Ohhhh, what could be better than it fried?
Have a try: you decide
Black pud! Buy! Buuuuuuuy!

Phil, one serious (if stupid) question: does "pud" not have the same slang meaning on your side of the Pond as it does on this one? Just curious... would be an extra level of pud-punnery.... anyway, a tasty appeFiver.

I'm a glutton for your glutenous gastronomic guffaw'ers! 5 heaping servings!
Phil Alexander - September 25, 2007 - Report this comment
:-) Thanks, everyone
TJC - awesomely alliterative
TT - evidently not: if I'd realized that while I was writing, I'd probably have slung in a few double entendres..
Ag - I rather like a good haggis.. it's catching the little pests that's difficult
JD - Naughty? Purely in the mind of the reader ;-)

That's not kosher, but I liked your parody anyway.
Phil Alexander - September 25, 2007 - Report this comment
Well, given that it's blood pudding, and frequently pig blood... if you were to take the non-kosher bits out, you'd not be left with much :-)

(Decathlon 2.0) Instead of making me blush with a parody of yours, Phil, now I need to vomit! Excellent job!

(dec2) "And anything that comes from goats" - LOL - 555

(Decathlon)555, with a side order of haggis and durian.

Decathlon...I think I'll skip the pudding, Phil...but I'm glad I didn't skip this parody...=) Nice work!

You know, I had to sing this dumb@$$ song in my high school chorus. This is the first time I've actually LAUGHED at it. Brilliant work on top of that, but 555s all around.

(DEC 2.1) Despite general disapprobation from friends and family, I actually love black pud...as long as I don't think about what's in it! Fun stuff, Phil...but my goat's now in hiding. 555

(Decathlon2) I, um, will pass on the Black Pud. . .but friggin hilarious, the WOW still stands though, totally unexpected commercial. . .I guess someone has to sell it.

(Dc 2: Attack of the Votes) 5s! Loved it! Remidns me of the story I read where some Australian guy atcually died laughing at some Ecky Thump thing on TV,

I guess the rumor that you have a nice sausage is true :P

DEC 2.1- Never had the black pud, but after reading this.. umm.. I probably still won't, but good work nonetheless, Phil.
