11:50 pm - Kinda young, kinda wow. Unh!
This won't be as funny in the morning, but I'd like to award twenty eight points to anyone who knows where this image comes from:



If you got it, you need to do "seventeen Hail Marys and five minutes outside." No one is going to steal it, but I encourage you to do so anyway.

For the rest of you, I know I've said before that I hate it when people post lyrics in their journals (I usually say it when I'm posting them in my own), and though I ought to be the last person listening to songs from Veggie Tales ('cept for The Bunny Song, which is hardcore (or would be, if I were in the habit of saying "hardcore" (what a run-on sentence this is.))), the song is too much fun not to. Here are the lyrics to The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, as performed by Relient K. Thanks to evil_jim for getting it stuck in my head. No, really. Thanks. I like it.
Arrrrrr......

We are the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything!
We just stay home and lie around.
And if you ask us to do anything, we'll just tell you...
We don't do anything!

But I've never been Greenland
and I've never been to Denver,
and I've never buried treasure in St. Louis or St. Paul,
and I've never been to Moscow,
and I've never been to Tampa,
and I've never been to Boston in the fall.

'cuz we are the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything!
We just stay home and lie around.
And if you ask us to do anything, we'll just tell you...
We don't do anything!

And I never hoist the mainstay,
and I never swab the poop deck,
and I never veer to starboard 'cuz I never sail at all,
and I've never walked the gang plank,
and I've never owned a parrot,
and I've never been to Boston in the fall.

We are the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything!
We just stay home and lie around.
And if you ask us to do anything, we'll just tell you...
We don't do anything!

Well, I've never plucked a rooster
and I'm not too good at ping-pong,
and I've never thrown my mashed potatoes up against the wall,
and I've never kissed a chipmunk
and I've never gotten head lice,
and I've never been to Boston in the fall!

Pirate Captain's log, 2002:
Who be this band, Relient K,
and why be they so full of contradictions?
We don't know what he did,
but we're down with Captain Kidd.

We don't wake up before lunch,
but we all eat Cap'n Crunch.
We don't smoke, we don't chew,
we watch Captain Kangaroo.

And I've never licked a spark plug
and I've never sniffed a stink bug,
and I've never painted daisies on a big red rubber ball,
and I've never bathed in yogurt and I don't look good in leggings...
And we've never been to Boston in the fall!

Ladies and gentlemen, let's give 'em a big hand!

We are the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything!
We just stay home and lie around.
And if you ask us to do anything, we'll just tell you...
We don't do anything!

We are the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything!
We just stay home and lie around.
And if you ask us to do anything, we'll just tell you...
We don't do anything!


***EDIT*** It occurs to me that unless you've seen the movie that picture is from, you don't realize that the crucifix is an intercom which blinks in rhythm when it conveys an announcement. Like the picture says: Catholic girls are scary.

That's way off, but I can totally see how it'd fit. Now that it's been an hour since I posted that, I realize that it's not a funny picture out of context. The crucifix is an intercom.

Anyway, I won't be around for your celebration tomorrow, but have a good time!

Yarrrr!!!

Now that you mention it's an intercom it sounds very familiar. It's gonna bug me until I find out (or forget about it.) I keep thinking of the Penguin but it's been a while since I've seen the second Blues Brothers movie.

I'm glad you like the song. After I found it I listened to it at pretty much every opportunity up until the Pirate Party. It's infectious that way.

It's an extremely catchy song. Have you heard the original version? I didn't realize there were two versions and the first one I found was sung by the cast of the show. The lyrics are a little different (and just as funny). I can play it for you sometime if you don't find a copy on your own.

As to the movie, we watched it together a few months back, but you might have blocked it out.

I'm just guessing but, is it from A Handmaiden's Tale?

No. I haven't seen A Handmaiden's Tale, but I'm guessing that it's probably a good movie. The image comes from a movie that you may not have seen, not because it's obscure but because it's erroneously regarded as a really bad movie. I think the studio went about marketing it the wrong way, so after it was generally panned by critics who couldn't pidgeonhole it into a specific genre, moviegoers either didn't see it, or were disappointed because they expected something else.

Either that, or I have incredibly bad taste.

The reason I probably haven't seen it, might be because I've not known of its existence them.... I might actually enjoy it.

My favorite veggie tales song is the the polyamory/cheeseburger song.

Something tells me it's not intended to be about polyamory?

Well, seeing as how it's supposed to be a Christian kids show, I'm guessing not. Benny and Wendy have it on dvd. I have it on a cd. The official title of the song is "His Cheeseburger." It's about the cucumber's desire for his unavailable cheeseburger and his torrid affair with bacon and eggs. It's really good. You should see it. Seriously.

It's a squash, not a cucumber... but yeah, same difference.

Are we talking about Larry? I always thought he was a cucumber too, not that I'd know.

Larry is a cucumber... The characters in "His Cheeseburger" are both yellow squash. I don't remember their names. They're the same two guys as in the Pirates who Don't Do Anything though.

Isn't the squash singing about the cucumber though?
