02:05 pm - Barney & Oscar Meyer: a match made in heaven
There are few things more annoying than kids who have just discovered the concept of parody, though this one -- concocted by an eight-year-old -- amuses me:
My balogna has a first name,
it's Y-O-U S-U... C-K.
My balogna has a second name,
it's A L-O and T.
Meh, could be worse. When Barney was new, my parents had friends whose kid was three years old and absolutely loved that show. We babysat him a few times but once was enough for me to write my own version of that damn song:
I hate you,
You hate me.
I think I'll blow up Barney.
Then I'll pick all the pieces up and send them straight to you,
tonight we're having Barney stew.
I'm not proud of these lyrics, but "Barney stew" is a pretty entertaining idea, provided I'm not the one who has to eat it.
Current Mood: nostalgicnostalgic for the days when I was easily amused by myself

No, thank you. I'm glad to have the validation, because if I've learned anything, it's that the things that crack me up aren't necessarily funny.

Twisted Versions of the Barney Song

The version I heard from a charming 7-year-old girl in 1994 was and I quote:

I hate you/You hate me/Let's get a gun and shoot Barney/And a shot rang out and Barney hit the floor/No more purple dinosaur!!

Another version:

I hate you/You hate me/We're a dysfunctional family/With a slap to you and a slap right back to me/Aren't you glad that Barney's dead?

Re: Twisted Versions of the Barney Song

It's too bad that seven-year-olds are the only ones who really appreciate parodies of that song because the eloquence of lines like "no more purple dinosaur" is wasted on people that young.

I'm reasonably sure that I'm fairly serious about that.

...slightly... different version

I hate you
You hate me
Chasing Barney up a tree
With a .45 caliber shoot him in the head
Aren't you glad that Barney's dead.

Re: ...slightly... different version

That's pretty close to the one that was popular when I was in school, except that the ".45 caliber" thing is different. I don't remember what ours was, but it sounded clumsier than your version. It had a couple of extra syllables, I think.

Hey boys & girls, let's sing the "Imagine" song.

"I" is for "Imagine,"
"M" is for "Me."
"A" is for the letter "A,"
"G" is for "Gee."
"I" is for .. "Imagine,"
"N" is for "Nice."
"E" is for "Egad! I said 'Imagine' twice."

It's from an episode of Animaniacs called "Baloney & Kids" (not very useful link)
Garmonbozia for the soul.
