|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,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:
it's Y-O-U S-U... C-K.
My balogna has a second name,
it's A L-O and T.
I hate you,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.
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.
Current Mood: nostalgic for the days when I was easily amused by myself
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!!
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.
