Original Song Title:

"Zestfully Clean"

Original Performer:

Zest TV Commercial

Parody Song Title:

"Weapons Obscene"

Parody Written by:

Robert D. Arndt Jr.

The Lyrics

Syrian armed forces dropping cruel weapons on the Rebels, aided by Russia.
Western military observers complain:

Weapons obscene,
Weapons obscene,
Barrel bombs, 1000 kg
Tear apart most buildings

Napalm burning!
(2200o)
Clusters hurtling!
Thermo oxygen-taking*!

And Sarin was a thing,
Assad remains the King

... of atrocities

[No signs of stopping]
* Russian thermobaric bombs, highest destruction apart from tactical nukes

careful, Rob. apparently, there's some new rule against parodying commercial jingles in place... 455

Jon, AG isn't Chuck. Heck, if that were the case even children's nursery rhymes would be banned and many short traditional songs as well as the short Beatles songs like "Dig It" (9 lines), "Wild Honey Pie" (9 lines), "Maggie Mae (6 lines), and more from many artists.

AG, you're wasting your time. Chuck had already noted that a few commercials by freecreditreport.com and a few songs like WHP submitted by a few authors in bulk had to end years ago. But Chuck is the one who reads all the parodies everyday and accepts or rejects them under his guidelines and HIS flexibility. I submit everyday. Nothing is new with any song or other material 10 lines and under; besides, all those Beatles songs and many more by various artists and by various authors here would have to be eliminated. Go look them up. The whole site would be affected, not just me. Now run along and submit some parodies of your own... if you can.

AG, how is being a troll constructive to this site? Btw, I am in no danger. My IPASOY and OTRA parodies (both longer than 10 lines) number over 900 and I have over 650+ individual artists. You saw that when you went down my exhaustive page, right? Your threat of conscious is nonsense. There are over 600 authors here from 10 to JAB's over 4300+. Most of us have done short songs as well as nursery rhymes, tv theme songs, traditional short songs, some commercials, a few hymns, maybe a poem here and there, or some other bizarre song material. I'm truly sorry that you're conceptually bankrupt. I write everyday off the top of my head and will continue to not only write for myself, but to inspire others here and get inspiration from others.

You talk about inspiring others, but is that to be done by breaking the rules? What kind of role model are you to impressionable youths like Jonathan and Larry? You are rending the fabric of this once-noble site, and that is your contribution to the moral disintegration of society as a whole. Thus did the Roman Empire fall, with incremental acts of corruption. (See Bullwer-Lytton.) In their day the Great Philosophers of Greece and Rome were called "trolls" for laying the moral, legal and logical precepts of an orderly society — and you, you are the bearer of hemlock to all that is meet and proper. The Gods are angry, my son. Repent. There is no comfort in your brand of numerology. Self-delete before you are set upon by the Furies.

This would make an interesting commercial 5s

Thanks Jon and Larry. While AG was ranting I reported him to Chuck and then wrote another parody!

I welcome this "Chuck" entering your report on my Permanent Record Card.

I wrote a few IPASOY's myself a couple years ago, mostly to protest the late Tommy Turtle's criticism of my "American Pie" attempts. I also did a parody of "MacArthur Park" in the voice of Screamin' Jay Hawkins to lampoon the mass production of "I Put A Spell On You" knock-offs. All fair topics, I'm sure. I think I even brought up "Wild Honey Pie" in my epic "If Gordon Lightfoot Sang 'Mary Had A Little Lamb'". My total output over the years I've been on the site is around 270, give or take an accidental repeat or two. Also fewer than 10 under a pseudonym. I see nothing wrong with lampooning a short jingle if it is well-known and the writer can make a point about something or someone noteworthy. I don't see much good in grabbing onto a short song simply for the purpose of inflating numbers. But, everyone here has a different talent, source of inspiration, time to devote to writing. I'm grateful every day that Chuck has provided us with the chance to display our writings and to read what others have written. As always, I would encourage anyone who wants to comment on someone else's parody or point of view to make the attempt to do so in verse.
