"Parodies We Write"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

In Strange Folks: Amiright (another parody to this tune), Tommy Turtle suggests we're all wasting our brainpower and ingenuity with all these parodies. My contention is that a brain is like a muscle: the more exercise you give it, the stronger it gets. So this is by way of a reply... read on, fair reader:
Please let me explain
And I'm not wrong, uh
If you use your brain
It just gets stronger
I used mine again
To write this verse to you

Therefore what we write
Our little ditties
Here at amiright
The upshot, it is
We become *more* bright
(that's unlike W)

Parodies we write, keep neurons firing
Our brain cells they excite: they're not expiring
Whether words be good or shite
Heavy tunes or light
Ain't it kind of fun though, our
Augmenting our brainpower...

While titillating guys
With double entendres
Pretending we're so wise
(Like Alexander's)
Geniuses cite
This site at AmIRight


You can improve your IQ
By writing stuff like wot I do, so

Howe'er bright you are
Make yourself brighter
Write something bizarre
Or impolite.. yeah
Grab that pen and write
Then post on AmIRight!

I have to concur...I actually got stupider over the past couple of months as I was taking a "break."

Alexander's brain
Is full of something
No one can explain
But it's a fun thing
Readers he delights
When parodies he writes

JB - if I'm right, then I guess you're going to be coming up with a unified field theory to link quantum mechanics to general relativity... or at least, writing a parody about it :-)
Arwen - I don't believe it for a minute
JD - :-) Thanks.
PMS - is there an echo here? ;-)

Phil is 100% correct about the brain getting stronger the more one uses it. I have been posting parodies here since last March and, just had an IQ test. It's increased 2 points in that short time span. I'm up to a 26 now! (fives, by the way)

Could PA and TT BOTH be correct? I mean, there are lots of worse or less productive ways we could be spending our time, but aren't there also some better, more productive mental exercises we could be performing?

As TT said to AFW after turning the latter's "Safe Sex" into the former's "Lab Test", "Continuation is the sincerest form of flattery." (so is plugging, of course). Thanks, Phil, and well spun. 555
BTW, everyone, I do agree with Phil's harmonic; "Strange Folks: AmIRight" was written tongue-in-beak.

P> S. Phil, you ever gonna answer last question asked in our dialogue at "Superflu-ousparodies etc."?

Yeah, it's the new amiright song. 555's!
