Song Challenge! 2.0 - Fit 3

Welcome back, Challengees! This week we have a twofer, about a subject near and dear to all of our hearts -- er, bums -- ridiculously expensive toilets.

The first by way of Amergin:

Have a million dollars just lying around, and not sure what to spend it on? why not a used toilet? That's right, kids, for just a million dollars and an ebay account you can wow all your friends with the ownership of a used toilet? Now you may ask yourself what could be so special about a toilet, to cost a million bucks...does it surf the net, play video games, chess, or even wipe your ass for you? Well, no. Well, then what's so special about it? Well this toilet was owned and used by JD Salinger and if you listen and smell closely you may even hear the ruptures of gas and smell the ghostly remains of the shit that once graced this bowl. (eBay listing here)

The second from an old Challenge! of the past:

Hong Kong jewelry company Hang Fung's golden toilet is certainly not the first toilet to become a tourist attraction: New Zealanders even make a contest out of interesting public bathrooms.... But Hang Fung's golden toilet is certainly the most valuable toilet you'll ever come across, as it's made out of solid 24-carat gold. (Full story here)

Let's see what you can doo, Challengees! (like that pun? I've got a million of 'em) Get crappin' -- er, crackin'!

Whether it cost you a million,
No matter if pot or gold.
We all have to use the toilet,
(particularly when cold).
Who cares who's used the thing before,
When you want to crap or pee.
Just get yourself to the nearest one,
Average Joe, you and me.

Genie's song from the other thread:

Milion-Dollar Potty

Tune: Million-Dollar Baby
Parody lyrics by Genie

It was a throne to match my shower,
And Salinger owned it before,
I found a million-dollar potty
At the online e-Bay store.

The smell continues with some power,
And grunts are heard there near the floor
Around the million-dollar potty
That ol' JD used before.

He was writing novels
And when he had to go,
He'd keep writing novels
As inspiration flowed.

If you should need to use my toilet
Just step inside my bathroom door
And smell my million-dollar potty
From the online eBay store.

That loo will not do
For that loo is far too new.
It's not the kind of loo
I long to own.
I like to contemplate
The motions of the great
Who have sat in solemn state
Upon my throne.
I can't abide a loo that's got no mystery
I've got to have a loo that has a history.
Where the memories crowd by
Of the Catcher in the Rye
Or young Lucy in the Sky
Or Judas Priest
So my loo must be old,
With stories to be told,
Or be made of solid gold
At very least.

Yay! Quick off the mark, this week's Challengees are rarin' for some Silver BLOBs! And here they are -- a Silver BLOB to:

Young Buchan for the unfortunate:

She's piddled in her petticoatie:
Can't afford a can!


Georgiansilver for the very earthy:

Who cares who's used the thing before,
When you want to crap or pee.


as well as for the very frightening:

Imagine there's no toilet,
It's easy if you try.


Genie for the punny sequel:

You may call me party pooper,

Genie also for the TMI:

He was writing novels
And when he had to go,
He'd keep writing novels
As inspiration flowed.


and finally the great McGrath of Harlow for this grunter groaner:

I like to contemplate
The motions of the great

Second Hand Rose


The sweet little lady
who lives across the way
goes online shopping
nearly every day.
She portions out her fortune
to the sellers on ebay
and that's why all the gentlemen say

Second hand booze
Second hand car
(she even bought a used cigar)
Women say she's clever, the fellas think it's hot
that Rose installed a second hand pot.

She comes home from the drive-in
in Roy Rogers' car
pours a glass of whiskey
found in antarctica
lights up the cigar and while she's smoking that
she takes a seat where Salinger shat


The whole town's charmed by the things she's bought
and now she has a second hand pot

Kudos to Young Buchan for the reference to Robert Burns's poem Comin Thro' the Rye!

All I can offer is:-

"all that David Copperfield kind of crap"

J D Salinger
On his crapper would linger and linger;
After laborious contemplation he concluded, with his customary insight and wit,
"Life's shit!"

Writer's Block; for JD with love and squalor

Of all the ills of the universe,
Constipation is one terrible curse;
You sit on the throne for hours and hours,
Calling on all the heavenly powers.
O move along, get along, move along, get along,
Go! Move! Shift!


You plead and beg with desperate howls,
For the emancipation of your bowels;
While your intestines their duty shirk
At your own evacuation of Dunkirk.
O move along, get along, move along, get along,
Go! Move! Shift!


While purgatives of every kind
Within your stomach provoke great wind,
Emitting odours of intense repulsion,
But nothing close to an expulsion.
O move along, get along, move along, get along,
Go! Move! Shift!


Still as the years and ages roll on,
Nothing at all gets past the colon:
And while you yearn for just one small plop
Peristaltic motion comes to a full stop.
O move along, get along, move along, get along,
Go! Move! Shift!

Yay! Let's hear it for this week's Challengees!

(waits for applause to subside)

(continues waiting)

(waits a bit more)

Yes, aren't they excellent! And now here's the moment you've all been waiting for, the presentation of the Golden Cow Chip Awards!

(waits again for applause to subside)

First, the Golden Cow Chip Award with Harp Ribbon (given for being able to make the Judges fall on the floor laughing OR make them short out their keyboard with tears) is awarded to:

   Young Buchan for "O Jenny's a' weet, poor body"
   Georgiansilver for "Whether it cost you a million"
   Genie for "Milion-Dollar Potty"

   Matthew Edwards for "Writer's Block; for JD with love and squalor"
   
Next the Golden Cow Chip Award with Mt. Rainier Medallion (awarded to the parody that most closely and hilariously follows the pattern of its original) is awarded to:

   Georgiansilver for "Imagine there's no toilet"   

Next the Golden Cow Chip Award with Memorial MMario Silverplated Spittoon (awarded to the Challenge! entry which evokes an instantaneous bubbling up of frothy mirth from out of the lips of the Judges and onto their monitor screen) is awarded to:

   Genie for her continuation of Georgiansilver's "Imagine there's no toilet"
   GUEST Jane for "While he tarried with adverbs and vowels"
      
Now, the Golden Cow Chip Award with Shamrock Cluster (awarded for a very high level of imagination, imagery, and/or creative use of language in a song) is awarded to:

   McGrath of Harlow for "That loo will not do"
   
Turning now to the Golden Cow Chip Award with Two-Fer-One Coupon (awarded to those Challengees who use two or more Challenge! topics in one song), this is awarded to:

Woohoo! Let's hear it one more time for our great Challengees!

And farting like a vicar in the pew

It smells just like dairitic poo

I think i'll phone NHS Direct
And tell them what's wrong with me
But I drop my mobile in the bowl
Oh my god, this is a case of dysentree

Oh

The fog on the bog is all mine
The fog on the bog is all mine all mine

I stick a tampon up my arse
That will do the trick
Until I do a great big fart
I feel so feckin sick

MILLION BUCK JOHNNY
Tune: Frankie and Johnny
New Words: Trapper (Al Boyce)

Frankie and Johnny were frantic
Oh Lordy, Where could they go?
Eight hours trapped in a Greyhound bus
And their bladders were set to blow
Where was the can? They couldn't wait very long...


The Greyhound pulled in to the station
Their seats were stuck way in the back
They twitched and jerked as they waited
For their turn in the depot shack
They needed the can - already waited too long....


The Men's room read "John out of order"
The Women's said "Under Repair"
Where could this desperate couple go
To find a toilet chair?
They searched for a can - soon it would be too long...


Frankie turned left out the doorway
Johnny he hung a sharp right
Frankie ran into the jewelry store
A museum was in Johnny's sights
They prayed for a can - they wouldn't need it too long...


Frankie ran past silver bracelets
She sprinted past fine diamond rings
A 24 carat golden stool
Was in the center of the thing
She'd found her can - now it would not be long!


John found the museum packed with people
They parted, what did Johnny see?
JD Salinger's porcelain pot
He ran, and prepared to pee!
It was his can, for however how long.


Frankie and Johnny reboarded
Both grateful for their good luck
For each of them found a place to go
That felt like a million bucks!
A million per can - that's the end of my song!

Trapper, we missed out originally, now the Golden Cow Chips are gone. We must take the earthenware, if not the feces. Anyway, I'll have a go as well:

Let for your solace this be told:
On this our most imperfect earth
to be a million dollars worth,
you need not be of solid gold.

It well suffices that one day
some famous arse upon you sat,
some famous arsehole on you shat,
which swiftly then has passed away.
