If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does that contribute towards global warming?

She’ll be coming ’round the mountain

leave a comment »

Lyrics of a popular song updated with modern day sensibility:

She’ll be coming ’round the mountain, when she comes

Trying to flag down passing cars down with her thumb

She hates making the long trek down

Stupid mountain she has to go ’round

Isn’t there an easier way to get to town?

Ladybug Ladybug

leave a comment »

Logical continuation of a nursery rhyme in the unpolitical correctness of today:

Ladybug, ladybird, which name do you prefer?

Buzzing and whizzing around like a blur

You look like you have a strawberry on your back

The colours ward off predators that want you as their snack!

Sing a song of sixpence

leave a comment »

Lyrics of a popular song updated with modern day sensibility:

Sing a song of sixpence and minted legal tender

Write an anthem for loan sharks and moneylenders

When the borrower cannot pay the loan on time

They’d better hide or be the victim of a heinous crime!
