Jingle bells, Batman smells…

leave a comment »

Lyrics of a popular song updated with modern day sensibility:

Jingle bells in Arkham’s cells: Total disarray!

Harley Quinn and Joker got their hands on Penguin’s toupee


Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin does ballet

Alfred’s drunk and he confirms that Bats and Robs are gay!

Solomon Grundy

leave a comment »

In tribute to Batman: Arkham City:

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

Solomon Grundy

Took a sickie on a Monday

Got in late at work on Tuesday

Fired on Wednesday

Went job hunting on Thursday

Paid child support on Friday

Drunk and disorderly on Saturday

Released on bail on Sunday

This is the (mundane) life of Solomon Grundy

Run Sonic Run

leave a comment »

Run Sonic Run (to the tune of Flanagan & Allen’s “Run Rabbit Run”)

In ’91, every gamer

Needed to own a Sega

To play the game that ev’ryone’s talking ’bout

On the Green Hill Zone, this icon runs flat out


Run Sonic, run Sonic, run! Run! Run!

Run Sonic, run Sonic, run! Run! Run!

Get a hundred rings to earn a life

Run Sonic, run Sonic, run! Run! Run!


Run Sonic, run Sonic, run! Run! Run!

Give the player lots of fun! Fun! Fun!

Beat Robotnik and his evil goons

So run Sonic, run Sonic, run! Run! Run!


Listen to the famous 1939 “Run Rabbit Run” song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVdoZNxtL8k

Nintendo mascots

Nintendo mascots (to the tune of Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana”)

His name is Mario, he is a plumber

He is a big-time champion in the Mushroom Kingdom

He’d save the Princess from meanie Bowser

Stomping Goombas gives him thrills, leaping over Bullet Bills

Collecting coins as loot in his Tanooki suit

Our portly hero eats magic mushrooms for his food


He’s a Nintendo, Nintendo mascot

A popular video gaming god

A Nintendo, Nintendo mascot

Fortune and fame as the star of his game

Nintendo mascot: That’s Mario!


Its name’s Pikachu, electric rodent

Many battles it has won against other Pokemon

Its skin is yellow, what a strange fellow!

But be careful not to mock, it’ll give you a Thundershock

Pikachu may be cute, but it has an attitude

Send it out against Team Rocket: “Pikachu, I choose you!”


It’s a Nintendo, Nintendo icon

From an era where battling is bygone

A Nintendo, Nintendo icon

There aren’t many others starring on mag’zine covers

It’s an icon: that’s Pikachu!


His name name is Donkey, he is a monkey

Throwing barrels at Jumpman, he’s got a short attention span

He’d capture Pauline, then climb a ladder

He was a villain in the game, then went on to clear his name

He never quite belonged, has no sense of right or wrong

When you annoy him he will shout: “It’s on like Donkey Kong!”


He’s a Nintendo, Nintendo idol

Though sometimes he gets homicidal

A Nintendo, Nintendo idol

No other game craze owns a famed trademarked phrase

Nintendo idol: Yes, Donkey Kong!
