Song Parodies -> "StupidCallowFrailAutisticWreck;SeeHowLow,VotesUs"

Original Song Title:


Original Performer:

Julie Andrews

Parody Song Title:


Parody Written by:

Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

"Autistic" in the title refers not to that psychiatric condition of unknown origin, but rather to the more general sense of "abnormal self-absorption", "a tendency to view life in terms of one's own needs and desires." No offense intended to those with loved ones afflicted with true autism.

(Also, had a side goal of seeing how closely TOS title could be syllable-matched while still producing reasonably coherent phrases.)

"One", votes he, "pacing", "funny"; "One", overall
"One" is his IQ, dummy; dumb as a doll

Does he think his judgment, stinking, actu'lly demotes us?
Me: the more page hits he gives, the more that he promotes us
He must really like our work, 'cause so much time: devotes, us!

Gripe: 'haps political? Too Left or too Right?
Fine: comments critical; but *logic*, not shite

We work hard on our parodies
When worthy: pride, we post
And if we've done them skillfully
Get good votes, all or most
Creep, cowardly anonymous
(Perhaps a haunting ghost?)
Thinks with his nonsense voting, he
Can turn them into toast!

If he leaves a comment, it undoubtedly misquotes us
"Do us harm", deludes himself, by ramming down our throats, thus
CT scan reveals his "brain" is really made of goat's pus!

You - can do better? Post! Let's see what ya got
Why stay anonymous? 'Cause *you* ain't done squat!

Okay to disagree, or not --
-- To care for what we've done
"De gustibus non disputan-
dum est." Don't like my pun?   [1]
If you don't find it funny; fine!
But perfect pacing: "One"?
Just sign your name and point to all
The errors we have spun!

Finding fine-tuned funnies freaks him out, makes fool frenetic
Someone, grab this goon and harp an hour's homiletic
Plainly wacky; painf'lly lacking sense of the aesthetic!

"Birds of a feather flock togeth-er"; 'tis true
You, Ted Kaczynski: Unabomb-ers, that's two   [2]

TURTLE: [spoken:]

You know, this moron votes all bass-ackwards
But that might not be far enough,
Don't you think?

AMIRIGHTERS: [spoken:]


TURTLE: [resume singing:]

We've many writers, excellent
Whom, proudly, we have hailed

(Three Fives!)

Ignore as moron pours on more
Of votes as if we've failed
He's lucky we support free speech
Or else we'd have him jailed


Um, your opinion?



Been hoist by own petard, retard!
By Tommy Turtle, *nailed*!


Oh, scum's a sad sack of sh*t, too!

TURTLE: [resume singing:]

Doesn't matter: good or great, or even if outstanding
Ev'ry one, he'll lowly rate, his vacu-ous blows, landing
Nor has he a higher bar, or standards more demanding
Just that doltish dummkopf is devoid: vocab, commanding

We shall carry on our fun, his One-bombs, notwithstanding!

[1] Ah, go look it up, ya lazy bums!

(kidding! ... "There is no arguing about tastes.")

[2] The "actual", original, Unabomber, as described more fully in the intro to this one

It's nice that you put a disclaimer at the top, that you were not poking fun at autism stricken people. :-) Having Asperger's Syndrome myself I can certainly say it's no picnic in the park! But as for the use of it in your song, it was a really great idea! and worthy of a triple set of 5's! Great Work!! :-) 555!

Wonderful job. Maybe he just hates certain NAMES. If that's the case, be prepared for a new author here...Taras Bulbasaur! ;D

LOL @ bass-ackwards & following line. I agree with the "If you don't find it funny..." 4 lines

Latin? Latin?! Only 1 parady author I know would think of that.

Still and all, thou knowest *my* favorite line: "Finding fine-tuned funnies..." [Well, that and "doltish dumbkopf"] :D 555

As always, TT, you nailed the pacing! Yeah that's the issue with those unabombers. I get them once in awhile myself, but I feel it's more of my fault and thought that I should work hard on parody writing. But this gets 5's always! Talented satire for a talented turtle!

Wild Child JIN: This writer would *never* make fun of anyone's infirmity, disability, or disease, and has called to task those who have. (no names). As far as your own case, consider the following from the Wikipedia article on AS, which is worth reading in it's entirety:
          "Children with AS appear to have particular weaknesses in areas of nonliteral language that include humor, irony, and teasing. Although individuals with AS usually understand the cognitive basis of humor, they seem to lack understanding of the intent of humor to share enjoyment with others." .... How can you write funny songs and parodies without understanding the basis of humor or the intent to share it with others? Also:
          "In 2006, it was reported to be the fastest-growing psychiatric diagnosis in Silicon Valley children; also, there is a predilection for adults to self-diagnose it" ... I'd be careful about letting oneself be labeled, or about labeling oneself. Such things tend to be self-fulfilling. As for moi, I don't attribute social difficulties to any disorder. I'm just a jerk, that's all. :-D
          Seriously, note in that article that a number of writers claim it's merely a personality difference on the social scale, and not some "disease" that needs to be treated. Not everyone is a bubbly "people-person". If most great inventors and scientists had been, they'd not have been great inventors and scientists. Think Thomas Edison, etc.... Enjoy being who you are, and thanks for the v/c.

AFW: Yep, "sulky", that's moi. :-D ... Thanks for v/c.

Mark Scotti: Thanks! "The AIR National Anthem -- Will you all please rise and sing?" -- I like that! :-D

Old Man Ribber: Who knows what triggers such a person? And who cares? I don't; do you? ... Thanks for v/c,. and I'm changing your name to You'll Grinner! :-D

Andy P: Glad someone went to the trouble of deciphering that! Thanks for v/c!

"Fiddle" Latin-Loopy Lou: Who is that? I'd like to read his/her works! ;) ... (actually, there was a parody done here some years ago entirely in Latin, IIRC. Had an idea and concept to do one myself, but decided it wasn't worth the trouble.) ... Yep, I know m'Lady's faves, and try to a-litter my parodies with them for HRH's pleasure. The usual LOL @ nick (check previous replies to your comments this week), and thanks for v/c!

Christie Marie M: It's NEVER *your* fault. *NOTHING* that you've written deserves a 111. Of course there's room for improvement in all of us, self included, but observe TT comment to your post today: Some glitches noted, but funny, and waaaaay above a unabomb. Keep working, heed honest advice, but ignore the ignorant creep who flat-votes Ones for *every* song. Thanks for v/c!

Loved it... A super skewering of Mr. Nada, AIR's very own masked Zero! Every line clever and perfectly formed... Turns out *you've* 'one' the war!

Tommy T. - I guess you do have a point there, about the humor thing I looked it up right after I posted my comment and found the same thing out too. So I guess I am just autistic-like showing mixed symptoms in the autistic spectrum and do not have Asperger's like I claimed. My psychiatrist did agree that I was autistic-like showing some symptoms in the autistic spectrum, but did not clinically diagnose me as having Asperger's, maybe I should have more trust in my doctors. ;-) Oh, and thank you for caring. :-)

Wild Child JIN: On the other hand, many doctors have a tendency to over-diagnose things, to justify their employment and fees. :)

I'll be blunt: I"m intellectually gifted and socially handicapped. (Whoever or whatever is in charge of these things seems to balance them out, heh heh!; ) That's not a disease. It may be annoying to others,, and surely is at times, but it's not a disease.

Some people are big party-goers. Others prefer to do things either on their own, or with perhaps one close friend. Some like social activities. Some like mental activities, including writing humor. These are the differences that make the world less boring than it would be if everyone were the same.

I like athletic activities. But I would go water-skiing with one other person (gf, e. g.), not a big group. No medical diagnosis there.

"Some symptoms on the autistic spectrum" -- I guess what's written above could be interpreted as that. But it isn't, It's just I, and you're just you, and thank goodness we're all different. Quit worrying, and enjoy life in whatever manner most pleases you!

BTW, probably most regulars here have some of that "spectrum". Else, we'd be out at a party instead of on the Net, or we'd be at Facebook (yuk!) instead of here. :-)

You've very welcome. I hate to see pop psychobabble affect people who are just being one more of the seven billion varieties of humans on the planet. That'll be $555, please. -- oh, wait, you already paid. We're even. :) :) :)
