Subject: Lyr Add: CONFOUNDS THE SCIENCE (Don Caron)
From: GUEST,Bradfordian
Date: 29 Aug 18 - 06:39 PM

This has been around for a year or so, from the Parody Project.

(Written by Don Caron – Music by Simon & Garfunkel)

Hello darkness my old friend.
It’s time for him to tweet again,
but first, he’ll have to check in with fox news
‘cause that’s the only place he gets his clues.
That’s how things get planted in his brain,
where they remain,
and it confounds the science.

The problem is he’s not alone.
He tweets to people on his phone
that global warming is a giant hoax
perpetuated by the liberal folks,
and he hires people that all think the same,
Who play his game
and it confounds the science.

When he talks to crowds of four
he sees ten thousand maybe more,
believing they all think he’s god on earth
and was the product of a virgin birth
and if you disagree you’re the victim of fake news
or feminist shrews
and it confounds the science.

“Fools,” says he, “you do not know
it makes me smart from so much dough.
I know exactly where the problems are.”
But his solutions are beyond bizarre
‘cause his words never quite a sentence make
and thus he spake
and it confounds the science.

No limits on pollution now.
There’s not a thing we don’t allow.
Dump the garbage in the waterway.
Spray the toxins where your children play.
All the signs say that life on the planet is headed for a downward fall.
Go to the mall,
And still confound the science.

No idea to which fart this might be referring!!! But I love a great parody.

Now there's a sequel:

(Written by Don Caron – Music by Simon & Garfunkel)

We know darkness will descend
Precisely as the signs portend
When all but three percent of scientists say
we should have taken action yesterday
a collision of corporate greed against the earth
our social dearth
and it confounds the science.

There’s air pollution overload
from life in fossil fuel mode
And while solutions are within our sight
We’re doing nothing to avoid the plight
A catastrophe like we’ve never seen before
stands at the door
and it confounds the science

Extermination of the bee
where once ten thousand now there’s three
they’re disappearing at a rapid clip
“I don’t use honey,” all the morons quip
We should remind ourselves that without bees there’s no food
and we’ll be screwed
and it confounds the science

Our cancer rates are through the roof
as to the cause there’s never proof
the chemicals that we spray on our food
and other toxins that we’ve gladly chewed
the consequences of our choices we minimize
yet supersize

and we confound the science

And the people bowed and prayed
to the money god they made
While the earth is flashing its warning
about disaster that we are forming
We argue back and forth over meaningless issues that we fabricate
til it’s too late
and even then it confounds the science.


This video is being posted on August 16th, 2018, exactly a year since the first video was posted to the Parody Project Channel . . . and the first video was Confounds the Science (Parody of Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel) which is still the most popular video we’ve done, with the Twelve Days of Trump’s Mess running a close second.

So I thought it would be fun and appropriate to post a sequel to Confounds the Science today, on the first anniversary of Parody Project. Maybe it’ll be an annual event, since there seems to be plenty of material that “confounds the science,” and that probably won’t change.

I missed this thread when it opened, I love it

The Parody Project

Parody Project on Youtube

If it can be made fun of, we'll make fun of it. Nothing's off limits with the Parody Project.

The Parody Project was founded in August of 2017 by Don Caron and Greg Gower. Parody in our contemporary culture is often largely misunderstood and is sometimes viewed as shallow sniping or cowardly criticism – and parody can certainly take that form. That’s not what we’re up to here, however. Parody has been an active and important part of contemporary culture for centuries. Whether in literature, theater, film or art, rarely does a day go by when an example of a parody is not widely visible. And it can be seen as ridicule but it can also be viewed as flattery. How you choose to view it says more about you than it does about the parody itself.
