The Funny Lyrics:
A bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down
and won
and it was 12 o'clock before I realized I was having
no fun
Why They're funny:
He was stared down by a bowl of oatmeal

John Prine's, "Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore"
The Funny Lyrics:
While digesting reader's digest in the back of the dirty book store
a plastic flag with gum on the back fell out on the floor
well I picked it up and I ran outside and slapped it on my windshield
and if I could see old betsy ross, I'd tell her how good I feel
Why They're funny:
He's digesting reader's digest...
and he's reading that in an adult bookstore instead of porn
