Thread Name: Anybody else hate parodies?
Subject: RE: Anybody else hate parodies?
Funny! There are a couple of lines that would be a tad upsetting to an Amish person- for instance, they don't allow themselves to call someone a 'fool'. Somewhere in the Bible it says that a man who calls another a fool is in danger of hellfire- a slight paraphrase, I suppose.

But I do know they'd find the 'local boy kicked me in the butt' line very funny.

The newsletter I do - and the next one is going out the week after Christmas- goes out to about 65 people about half of whom are Amish- and I'm going to include this parody in it. I can guarantee you they will NOT have heard of Weird Al.

Weird Al Yankovich has done a concert in Juneau several times in the years I've been here but I never went to see him. Sounds like I should have!

Thanks for the lyrics, guys.
