Thread Name: Greenfields of France parody...
Subject: RE: Greenfields of France parody...
No: sorry, Jim, just can't. I fear I am of the school that thinks there are things beyond the scope of parody, mockery, burlesque, travesty, spoof...
I can't raise a smile at Springtime For Hitler ~~ & yes I know a Jew wrote it; and I know its alienatory play-within-the-play get-out, supposed to be the most tasteless ever but amazing smash-hit. I have, honest, heard of irony.
& I know all about soldiers singing in the face of danger to cheer themselves up ~~ but they are there, and smartarses in folk clubs aren't.
I have clearly had a SOH·ectomy. And you know what? It didn't hurt a bit, & I can still live with myself after it.
Don't know what, as some have speculated about above, Eric thinks or would think about it. I only know what I do.
