Song Parodies -> "Mike Hunt Quite Tagged Is He"

Original Song Title:

"My Country 'Tis of Thee"

Original Performer:

Traditional

Parody Song Title:

"Mike Hunt Quite Tagged Is He"

Parody Written by:

Guy DiRito

The Lyrics

According to Wikipedia Samuel Francis Smith wrote the lyrics to "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" in 1831. It was also know by the song title "America" and served as the US National Anthem until "The Star Spangled Banner" was adopted as the official national anthem.

The original piece contained four verses. A fifth verse was added to celebrate Washington's Centennial. Two additional verses were written by Henry van Dyke sometime later. I wrote a four verse version of this parody a few years back. Since I learned its history I rewrote the parody into a full seven verse version. I used a bit of verse from the original write but mostly it's all new. The Brits have their own version to this song entitled "God Save the Queen" If the reigning monarch happens to be a King then the words referring to gender is changed accordingly.

Mike Hunt quite tagged is he,
Pete, Stan or Jeff-er-y; did no one think?
Planned poor your father plied,
Should name of William tried?
With every tout so snide, he'll need a shrink.

How naive can one be?
To name so notably, thy name is snubbed.
They rub and mock so shrill,
Why could they've named him Bill?
He gets the picture chill, how he was dubbed.

While musing shall they tease,
Like stings from bumble bees, keep beatin' on.
The chortles flung do make,
Mike Hunt to seethe and ache,
Don't mock, please silence make, their hounds un-fond.

A call came from up front,
And quipped, "You seen Mike Hunt"?
"Excuse me, m'am"?
"I've seen a lot of stuff,"
"Don't think I've seen your muff,"
"Get your-self in the buff,"
"I'll take a scan."

His father's oddity,
He named him horribly,
Did he not care?
Mike once had hair galore,
Bald now, his hair's no more,
Rememb'ring times before,
Mike Hunt had hair.

Mike Hunt, we quiz at thee,
Your name phonetically,
Of humor thinks,
Fan of your father's bride,
Slammed by that name applied.
With ev-er-y comment snide,
This name pun stinks.

Mike's name made him quite coy,
Mike Hunt is not a toy,
His name detests.
That name caused him despair,
Like someone’s derriere,
Covered by underwear,
That's why he's stressed.

You put new spark in the old name joke..funny and clever work..Great DE..
Guy - July 21, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks Farce - I was wondering if anyone was going to say anything good, bad or indifferent about this write. I know if I had that name I'd either use a middle name or insist on being called Mikey, Mickey or Michael.

Yeah it's an old joke but I tried to do something original with it. I get off on stupid titles. Like if your last name is Parts and you enlist in the Army you will immediately be known as Private Parts. And don't even enlist in the Navy if your last name is Stains. Fill in the blank. Thanks for commenting.

LOL!! Hilarious! You're such a riot! I've enjoyed your parody lots! I remembered back in school, I made a petition on adding French language to the curriculum. Those are the names of some students I found on the list in my petition: Anita Bath, Helen Earth, Mike Hunt ;), Eric Shawn, Seymour Butts, Connie L***us! Instead of feeling insulted, I was actually laughing! Of course I didn't show it to the teachers 'cuz I know for sure I would get in trouble. It was actually a fake petition anyways. Can't stop laughing at your parody, though! 5's! Any parodies based upon name puns are funny!
Guy - July 21, 2009 - Report this comment
Christie - I knew that there were folks out there today that get off on PUNishing names. I have a collection of them as well as a collection of a whole lot of oxymorons and some of the most PUNishing pun jokes ever. And don't forget about Connie's sister. Annie... =;-)

It's only dirty if you let your mind run through the mud. I'm glad that you enjoyed this so well. Thanks!

Fiddlegirl - Thanks for autographing my parody. I really appreciate comments. =;-)

Timmy - Yeah I should poke fun of names. When I lived in Nebraska there was a local potato chip company named Guy's and then there was Doritos. It was the only time that I was ever really in the chips. Thanks!

Blackjack - If you run into anyone who is looking for this parody tell them to look up Mike's wife Helen. Please tell them to go to Helen Hunt for it. Comment appreciated - thanks!

Mr. Hawk - Do you even have a clue? =-:) Thanks!

Alvin - Maybe he changed his last name to Hawk? LOL There must have been some funny moments back in your school days with that poor fellow. Thanks buddy for weighin' in.

Good job putting something new into a really crappy old joke. Perfect pacing, and very funny, 5s.
Guy - July 22, 2009 - Report this comment
Silver - Yeah - it is kind of an old joke - it probably preceeds the 50's TV series of "Leave it to Beaver". Thanks. =;-)

I love guys with names like that. Over the years I've worked with:

Mike Cox
Peter Came
Dick Luce (pronounced loose)
Major Poon (Air Force Officer)
Guy - July 22, 2009 - Report this comment
McKludge - ya gotta keep a sense of humor with people who are tagged like that. Major Poon, Huh? USAF. Huh? I was in the USAF and there were two officers that I always dodged. They were General Nuisance and Major Disturbance. Thanks for your comment and a view at some strangely tagged folks.

Short story about Peter Came.

The company I worked for hired a bunch of contractors, so we suddenly had 50 engineers who didn't know anyone. A few weeks later, an email went out announcing that Mr. Came was being promoted to a Group Lead position. One of the women sitting near me responded to the email by announcing loudly, "Who's Peter Came?" To which a coworker answered, "Not mine, I'm dry."

M'Lady - Under where hast thou been in the employ of such notable characters? I am at most impressed with thine resume. I bid thee my utmost appreciation for your most candid review.

McKludge - You know that I would be the guy that would reply in that manner to that innocent question. I've quipped things like that and have on occasion been sorry for it but I still laugh like hell about it. I love it. Thanks.

Since you wrote your "Mike Hunt" parody and AFW his "Jack Goff" parody a few months ago (or was it last year?), I might have to do a parody about Seymour Butz, Al Coholic, I.P. Freeley or one of those other poor gents who have been reduced to little more than a sleazy joke. 5s for you.And as for your references to Guy's and Doritos chips, I have been a little more "fortunate", thanks to a lingerie shop in my hometown, an obscure brand of steak sauce apparently found only in the St. Louis area, a fish-and-chips shop in Ventura, California and a Greek play all having my first name affixed to them, and a city in Texas with my last name (but no family relation) as its moniker. Maybe the lingerie shop, steak-sauce bottler and fishmonger should start paying me royalties? :-)

Hey Guy, just wanted to let you know something about your naval comment about the surname "Stains". That name would have been a pic-nic compared to a poor unfortunate of my acquaintance. A lad by the name of Jimmy Drinker. A fine name for a frat boy, or a poker buddy, or even a member of any OTHER branch of the service. But NNNOOOOO! Jimmy had to join the Navy. I think he thought it would be funny. And it probably was, the first couple hundred times. But after that... Hoo boy!
Guy - July 24, 2009 - Report this comment
So I see man. =;-) And it didn't do much for the rep that the Navy has in this regard.
Guy - July 24, 2009 - Report this comment
Andria - there are more of these kinds of PUNishing names than one can shake a stick at. Go for it - I'll read it - I'll laugh - I'll comment and vote. We have such a thing in the IT field called "Proper Naming Conventions". Obviously this does not apply when parents name their children.

Quite the achievement to carry out the humor so well through 7 stanzas with the same meter. 555

Thanks Ag - any positive comment from you means good job because your parody writing discipline is so high. If it passes the Ag test then it's good to go. Now if I could just get you to get your head wrapped around "guyspeak" would be the icing on the cake. Thanks buddy.

(ABC5) My opinion on this parody can be summarised thusly: who the crap is Mike Hunt? I don't know the OS either, and I'm kinda pressed for time to click the handy link at the top.

@bobpiecheese - This is why I vote early so I can give everyone an even break. Your comment is kind of terse - ouch. Anyway I'm glad you made your deadline. And I'm sorry that the message of the parody got by you.. Mike Hunt has a cousin named Mike Hawk. See you next round - no hard feelings.

There can never be enough Mike Hunt parodies. Very funny, Guy, and better than the first one (where I distinctly remember making an ass of myself in the comments).

Peter - Good one - But I had to work it out by using the shortened form of Stuart - It works well if the first name is Stu and not Stuart. That's it right?

It's like being named Richard Liqueur - You have to work out the nuances on this one as well. Thanks. =;-)
