Disney's The Little Mermaid

Parody Song Title:

"Yum, Deities!"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

big Big BIG props to Kristof Robertson, who both inspired this parody with his "Jesus on a Bun" parody and gave me the song and title sub for this one. And the Thor/smores rhyme is his.

Be warned: There is serious pun overload on this one, so if you have a weak mind, you might want to read this in doses :-)

And if I disparaged someone's religion here, well, sorry, but you'll have to get over it.
Some folks see face of Jesus
In their morning pancake stack
Madonna in their grilled cheeses
Or Allah in midnight snacks
They speculate their creator
Is reaching out from beyond
But me? When I make my supper
I see entire pantheons

Yum, Deities!
Yum, Deities!
Image of Loki
Here in my gnocchi
How can this be?
The chariot of Apollo
Shimmering in my lime Jello
There’s Izanami
In the salami
Yum, Deities!

At night when the fridge I’m Raiden
To see if the fruit’s still fresh
Diana, that huntress maiden
Is in the babaGanesh
It never got on Minerva(s)
To see all the things I saw
Like Set in the plate I’m served of
Those veg’tables in the Ra

Yum, Deities!
Yum, Dieties!
Sweet Aphrodite
Dressed in a nightie
In my Wheaties
Visions of Indra and Kali
Formed by the cream in my coffee
The Holy Ghost is
In my Post Toasties
Yum, Deities! (Yum, Deities!)
Yum, Dieties! (Yum, Deities!)
On the wine bottle
And in the cheese
Mohammed’s pate in my pâté
Jehovah’s face in my Yah-whey
Is that Poseidon
In my boiled onions
Yum, Deities!

There’s Thoth in the broth
And Zeus in the mousse
Anu in the stew
Poured on my couscous
There’s Ki in the brie
And Tyr in the beer
And Frey-filled filets of sole
There’s Thor in the smores
And Pan in the bran
Both Lugh and Guan-Yu
In tuna fish cans
In choc’late fondue
Ukko’s in the fish roe!

(Musical interlude while I re-read Bulfinch’s Mythology)

Yum, Dieties!
Yum, Dieties!
When Nike’s seen
In the collard greens
I feel quite at ease
All of the many forms of God
Can be located in the baked cod
Now I see Ares
In the raspberries
Yum, Deities!
This hunk of Gouda
Sure look like Buddha
Yum, Deities!
My Belgian waffle’s
And my falafel’s
Shaped like Demeter
(I guess I’ll eat her)
Lastly, Fridge Penguin’s
In my fried chicken
Yum, Deities!

Ack! It's supposed to read "Some folks see *the* face of Jesus" Never a good sign when you flub the first line.

Fine lesson in comparative religion, fine rhymes, fine puns. Mighty fine all around.

Way too many good lines to mention (though I especially loved "Sweet Aphrodite/Dressed in a nightie")... don't worry too much about the first line: I found it worked as is if sung in Sebastian-like tones. Definitely a SOTM contender, IMO

Just an excellent idea and well done. So many Gods and much little time. It sends Shivas up my spine

Genius, McK! I'm so proud to have been the inspiration for this...literally too many puns to manage in one sitting, but rich and creamy with zany humour. As Phil said, definitely SOTM worthy. 555+++

Too much Sea food diet - (See food and eat it) - You twit, you should be auctioning your Quetzalcoatl off on E-Bay not eating it. I've heard of food and fun but this is just pure food and pun. I once saw Neptune in the security code background and the security code was H2O, Way over the top. OUTSTANDING!

alvin - Goofy? I was gonna use Pluto instead of Ukko, but I didn't want to exclude the Finns.

JB - Just fine? :-) And I guess Kristof gets some second-hand inspiration credit.

lCC - Glad I could learn ya some

MrMac - Hopefully it can be THE best of the month...

Phil - Now how did I know that was gonna be your favorite line...

Ann - I'm a religious pundamentalist, can't you tell?

Transparent One and Dee - Shiva/liver was one of the many rhymes I didn't use, like Athena/weiner and Ishtar/Mars bar.

Kristof - I can't thank you enough for the idea. I would never have thought of using Under the Sea. Since I live in Orlando, I try to block Disney from my mind as much as possible.

Guy - I still have the wine bottle. Bidding is up to 10,000 Venezuelan Bolivars! Unfortunately, that is less than 5 bucks.

it's lucky Fridge Penguin's got a sense of humour, McKludge, or I wouldn't want to be eating ham at your place for a while (unless you're Jewish of course and wouldn't be eating it anyway) - but as it turns out FP has a wonderful sense of humour and is waddling round in circles in his little cubby cackling aloud at this gagfest - beautiful puns, none better than the Minerva one - lol - loved the whole thing though - 555
McKludge - December 12, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks, Stu, though I didn't know that penguins cackled. The Loki/gnocchi couplet is my fave.
EmiLoca - January 09, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Geez, you are religious guru and a witty couplet mastermind. The title alone is spot-on hilarious, and I loved the pate/pate thing. And the Minervas. And Holy Post Ghost Toasties. And... it's going to do a lot of good for me to quote the entire thing back to you. I haven't seen much of your other stuff lately, I need to check it out posthaste.

SOTM - Noone has yet mentioned how you rounded things of with the dessert "Shaped like Demeter, (I guess I’ll eat her)" so I'll snatch that part as my private favourite! ;-P

SOTM - Pretty inventive parody done to a tune from the company who has created a magical land where the deity of choice seems to be an 80 year old mouse. hmmm...

Stan Hall - January 29, 2008 - Report this comment
Heavenly, Valhallaic, ... etc. I always love tese catalog songs, and this one's gods/goddesses theme really pinged a funnybone primed by having just days ago seen a performance of director Mary Zimmerman's marvelously whimsical staging of her play "Argonautica" (adapted from the Greek myth re Jason & the Golden Fleece).

(SOTM) I think this one wins the world record for 'Most Puns Squeezed Into A Single Parody', hands down! Nice how you worked in the Fridge Penguin right at the end. 555 for sure!

(SOTM) oh yes, they cackle alright McKludge, in fact they snap cackle pop whenever they see the other deities getting the mickey taken out of them, and that's twice in half an nour I've laughed at a Buddha line vis "This hunk of Gouda Sure look like Buddha" - this also gets the "great use of food" award, McK

(SOTM) How could I not love this? And I'm glad it's doing so well in the comp....well-deserved plaudits, dude (hey, where's my cut, huh?) ;-)

(SOTM) McKludge, this is the best parody by you I've ever read, and should be running among the top contenders this month (I'm sure it probably is) This song hasn't been beaten as bad as some other Disney tunes (at least not yet), so Congrats on an all around classic.

Okay, now I see what the fuss was all about. Excellent job with a tough song, and an obviously funny topic (didn't hurt to see the topic twice this round)

SOTM- This was very punny. Definitely one of the best I've seen for this round. Great job, McKludge.
McKludge - February 01, 2008 - Report this comment
Thanks for the love, folks. I must give thanks to Kristof for the inspiration and OS choice, he deserves a wedge of my medal. Abd I also must thank James M Ward and Robert J Kuntz, the authors of the Deities and Demigods book from 1st edition Dungeons and Dragons. That's where 80% of the god's names came from. Who knew being a D&D geek in high school could get me where I am today?

Emi - Well, if you want to feed my ego, go ahead and quote it all back to me. I won't mind :-)

Agri - Holy Jeezum Crow? I knew I left one out.

Matthias - You've never head of turducken?

Peter - It was a reminder for people to pronounce it "de-MEE-ter"

Michael - The don't worship the mouse at Disney. They worship the almighty dollar.

Stan - Thanks for adding "Valhallaic" to my vocabulary. Could have been another couplet "Valhalla/challah"

Bobpie - I used my old garlic press.

Stu - Well, gouda is awful round. Does cheese have a Buddha nature?

Kristof - I can't thank you enough. I promise to vote you in my top five in all future comps. Shouldn't be a hard promise to keep.

And thanks to all the other voters.

Brilliant, and enough puns to make Jeff Reuben freak out... But I gotta say McKludge this one was a bit over my head. Now that's an idea for a good "Under The Sea" parody.... Heh, heh, heh... I might work on that one. Anyways... Everyone loved this one, so don't let my lack of knowledge of religions bug you.

Yes, but how many Corn Flakes have you found shaped like the state of Illinois? =) Top notch work, McKludge, extremely funny. 555++

Matt - I knew most people wouldn't know more than 20% of the gods names. That's why I put the glossary at the end. I know that most humor doesn't work so well when you have to explain it, so I was amazed this did so well in the comps. Red Ant - Never had that, but I had a brick of cheese that looked like Wyoming, and some Jiffy Pop that looked like Oklahoma (well, upside-down it did)
