The Lyrics

Parody author Rex Ungericht was the person who suggested I name my oldie-moldie parody collection "Agrimorfee's Attic". I promised to do "something nice" for him in return, and so, here it is!
Now, the parodies of Rex's
Are ones you've got to see
Though he's not written that much
Quality trumps quantity

He talks of his addictions
To gifts as well as golf
About life as Kwai Chaing Kane
And as a Christmas Elf

He's a quiet kind of writer
But what else can he do?
He leads a life in I.T.
Bet he wishes he were Hugh*

You may talk about your Robert J.
And Johnny D and Arwen, too
But those parodies of Rex's
Should be read by all of you!

You might say it was his Destiny
To write of Pluto's woe,
Or on The Price of Gasoline,
And God Bless Acanico

The Stork, The Stork is coming
Fanny's tender on the bum!
But something worse has happened
Someone has Plundered his Rum!

He's the unheralded writer
Of Amiright's big crew
No rating less than 4.1
Can I same the same for you?

He may talk about his Snacrifice
Among Disasters he could see
Yes, those parodies of Rex's
Make me giggle heartily

Yes, the parodies of Rex's
Should be read ASAP!

Ah, yes. Where would we be without Rex. "Same the same for you" should be "Say the same for you", but still this was good.

I was in a hurry. :) Thanks for the 5s, M.

The circumstances surrounding this parody present a provocative dichotomy. In the first verse, the author claims that "quality trumps quantity;” but, when his lack of quality is pointed out to him, he admits that he was in a hurry. Unfortunately this parody was inspired by Rex picking a name for the author’s collection of parodies that he freely admits are not his best. So, even though the author acknowledges the value of quality, don’t his actions indicate that he is more interested in quantity?
