The Lyrics

Hay Fever is an allergic reaction to allergen in found in the air. They're usually more abundant in Spring and Fall. These allergens include pollen, dust, or animal dander. It's usually not as serious as some people make it out to be. Case in point...
Verse 1: Oh I could die, from each sneeze
Deadly dust specks in the breeze
The air of which I breathe, cause me to wheeze
First my lungs, then my eyes
They swell up to twice their size
Go get the Benadryl, if you’d please!

Chorus: Heal up, Sneezy Jean
Don’t make such a scene
Just a hay-seeded fever
And an-tihistamines

Verse 2: We’re out on the farm
Just to enjoy nature charms
Now my throat’s collapsing, be alarmed!
My bad our good times had to end
Please stop laughing, some best friend
So how much torture counts as harm?!

Chorus: Cheer up, Wheezy Jean
Oh, I’m not that mean
Just a hay-seeded fever
With no increased degrees
Buck up, Wheezy Jean
Don’t be so obscene
From a hay-seeded fever
And a lot of caffeine

Chorus: Cheer up, Sneezy Jean
Now the world has seen
You with hay-seeded fever
Acting like snotty teens
Cheer up, Sneezy Jean
Just look at the screen
Cuz that hay-seeded fever
Has made you a queen!

Not bad. Allergy season is approaching... At least I hope it is. Hate winter. Can't wait till spring!

@Jonathan -- An average of 9 parodies a year and 9 little butt-kissing puns a day. Start contributing, if you can.

Second verse was clunky to me, but still some genius work in the choruses and dropping antihistamines in the rhyme mix.

@Irritated -- What a miserable wretch of POS you are for bashing Jonathan. This website is dying because of lack of positive energy that Jonathan contributes. I personally have lost all desire to contribute anything to this place, and it's certainly not because of Jonathan

^ Thanks Lennie and as for Irritated while I'll concede that my puns often DO suck I'm not going to pretend to dislike a parody I found enjoyable just to appease him/her/it!

What Agrimorfee & CML both said. To Irritated, I suggest you leave amiright & never come back. That would improve the atmosphere here immeasurably.
Irritated - January 07, 2015 - Report this comment
I goosed Jonathan because it's bland back-patting like his that stinks up the atmosphere. I want to see parodies and commentary which are edgy as well as constructive. As far as I can see, Jonathan never saw a parody here that he didn't acknowledge with content-free high 5s or an occasional 4. He just can't keep from seeing his name in print. I've shown heroic forbearance till now. With "Hay there! 5's," I broke. I snapped. I ran amok verbally by stating the obvious. So CML and Phil, have I blasphemed? Are you excommunicating me? On today, of all days? Freedom of speech! Freedom of the Internet! No personal attacks like "POS!" Liberté, fraternité, égalité! Vive la France!

I also agree with CML on Jonathan's contributions to AiR. I think he is a reputable parodist who takes the time to fairly evaluate most of the parodies daily. And he doesn't auto-5 everyone. I've gotten many 455 and other less than 5 votes from Jon as well as hecka funny comments that leave myself and others chuckling. If anything, Jon is Mr. Positive on a declining, miserable site filled with pompous, hypocritical, incompetent, A-holes who parade around as judges of other people and not their works. The 500 Gang doesn't bother me at all, but leave Jon alone. He's a good guy and deserves praise for tolerance within this infighting mob.

O.K., Brother Rob, but I was the only one with enough heart to descend from the elite perch and encourage Fack Sabbath with positive comments and 5s. All you prols ignored or one-bombed him, even though he said, "I'm trying my best."
Phil Alexander - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
@Irritated - I think I disagree on almost every point: it's not the back-patting that stinks up the atmosphere, it's the pseudonymous petty carping and negativity, especially by those who think quantity of parodies alone defines contribution. In continuing to read and comment on parodies, even when not posting, Jonathan is contributing far more than, well.. you are for example. "Heroic forbearance"?? Twaddle. And then to compare a simple request to leave with twelve people murdered? Get over yourself, man, and lose the victim complex

You said:
"An average of 9 parodies a year and 9 little butt-kissing puns a day. Start contributing, if you can." which parody author are you? That is not a comment which could reasonably be made by anyone who wasn't submitting parodies on a regular basis. Show a little honesty and own up.

I have already forgotten about Jonathan. He's just the kid who hangs around the big guys on the block, basking in reflected glory, trying to qualify as mascot. No animus unto him, but he contributes little but annoying blurts. Of course, I have a high quantity of parodies; I'm in the game, spend a lot of time at it, and naturally resent the freeloaders who advertise themselves with cheap puns and ingratiate themselves with brown-nosing flattery of their betters. That is why I favored the disturbed, but better man, Fack.

Phil, my "pseudononymous petty carping" and alleged negativity have certainly proved a challenge to you and enlivened the discourse herein. You recommended to me that bit of jingoistic foolishness: AIR: love it or leave it. I related that lightly to the events of the day, perpetrated by murderous fools. How could you not see that as being in the spirit of parody? Where's your wit?

Guess my identity. I love to write and I am rather prolific. But I do not obsess over quantity as does a contributor to this thread. All the best. I am a colleague, but I have sharp elbows.

Phil, Rob, CML: I've enjoyed this flap "immeasurably," but now it's back to executing my joy in creating the parodies which are now only fragments in my mind.
Phil Alexander - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
The ego has landed

..what makes someone who reads & comments on parodies any more of a freeloader than those who post them? None of us pay for amiright, we're all freeloading here. And as for "basking in reflected glory", sorry, I just don't see that at all. Maybe you'd like to direct me to your best ever work, and we can see just how much glory there is to reflect?
Abbott Skelding - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
I'm gonna ignore all the negative energy and focus on the spoof at hand. Blaydeman, this is a pretty solid piece of work...although, it was kind of weird to have a character tell the other to "get over" their hay fever. Seems awkwardly confrontational (like the majority of the comments in this thread). Pacing was spot on and the rhyming was great, but the storyline seemed kinda weird.
Blaydeman - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
So @Irritated.... Did you or did you not like my parody? ;)
Rob Arndt - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
@Irritated, not accurate at all. I have encouraged Fack to drop the obscenity routine and told him he held promise. I also told him I liked his "Paperback Abba" and parodied that!!! Get your facts straight. I have given 5s to FS more than you know... even to my detractors here. Don't assume anything about me.
Irritated - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
Blaydeman: I thought it bounced along nicely. How about a Gentleman's 4, rather than an Obsequious 5 or an Ambiguous 3 or a Disheartening 2 or a Malicious 1? There! Done! Your overall ratings weren't affected. By the way, isn't hay fever a Fall phenomenon associated specifically with ragweed? And isn't the Spring allergy caused by grass?
Blaydeman - January 08, 2015 - Report this comment
Well Irritated, I'm glad you asked. "Hay Fever" is a common term for a condition called allergic rhinitis which is cause by any pollen, dust, or animal dander that elicits and allergic reaction of the respiratory pathways. There is no baring on season, however when caused by just pollen it's called pollinosis, and when caused by grass pollens (such as ragweed) it's labeled as "hay fever".

This is one reason I never use the 555 rating system. I want to see comments that indicate the reviewer has actually read the parody, and maybe even attempted to sing it to him/herself. I've written a parody to "Daydream Believer" based on personal experience. I've also experienced cold and allergy symptoms as described here. The parody is well-paced and accurate. A humorous look at a familiar topic. That, to me, is what parody writing is about. That is what we should encourage.

(Artistry) Pretty good parody, but it took a bit to realise that the verses and choruses where from two different perspectives, that could've been a bit clearer. That aside, 555 snot rags!

When it comes to having a sick feeling, this parody provides a perfect relief.
