Subject: SONG CHALLENGE! Part 35
From: Áine
Date: 23 Jul 00 - 11:39 AM

This Challenge! was suggested by sophocleese (thanks!). If you're getting those summertime doldrums (or wintertime doldrums, if you're one of our NZ/OZ friends), here's a frisky little Challenge! that ought to blow those doldrums right away (hehehehehe):

So A Man Walks Into A Bar With A Fox Under His Arm And... -- "This whole story has been blown out of all proportion," said a spokeswoman for the Over and Sons garage in Aspatria. "It's true that last week a man walked onto our forecourt in the Market Place with a fox under his arm, pushed the nozzle of the compressed air line into the animal's rectum, put 20p in the slot, and pumped it until it exploded. But what the newspaper reports didn't mention was that the animal was already dead."

The spokeswoman explained that the garage had been under siege for several days following reports about the incident. A report appeared in the local paper, talking about 'this sickening and horrible act,' and next day the nasty phone calls started. Animal rights activists even threatened to make reprisal attacks on the garage, and more staff were called in.

But what had really happened was that an amateur taxidermist had brought the dead fox in, and asked if he could pump some air between the fur and the skin, to loosen the pelt. After apparently 'overdoing' it a bit, he then ran away in embarrassment. The garage's spokeswoman continued, "It ought to be obvious to anyone that the animal couldn't have been alive. I mean, it's hard enough to even hold a live fox, let alone insert an air-line up its rectum. I should imagine."

Police later confirmed that they had spoken to a man about the incident. "We are convinced that no criminal act has taken place, but we did warn him about the inadvisability of inflating animals in a public place."

Go for it, Challenge!rs!!!

To the tune of Irish Washerwoman (since so many people are a little tired with that tune anyway - see "most unfavorite session tunes" thread)

Well, I went to the bar ordered ale in a glass
Brought my fox, he was dead, pumped some air in his ass
Too much air, he exploded, then a piece of his rear
Was seen floating around in the foam of my beer.

Reminds me of the guy in Cervantes' Don Quixote who used to grab dogs off the street, insert a long piece of cane into their rectum, and inflate them like a balloon. Then he'd give the dog a thump on the gut and say to the horrified passers-by "You think your life is hard? Well TRY THIS!" He was from Seville...

Parody on a DT Song, FOX HOLLOW SONG by Richard Wilkie

This makes little sense unless you first read the original (which I have stolen nearly line for line because I am tired and lazy and it is the quickest way to get a song posted!!!!)....

The dunderheads were sitting on the barstools down below
It was raining in Fox Hollow, and the people would not go.
I came to this tavern to hear some people sing
But I won't go home this evening til I see that 'dermist's thing.

He comes over from the valley, to this city by the sea
To show us how it's done (gives classes monthly and biweekly).
Uses every kind of instrument that I have ever seen
On every kind of critter (even roadkill turning turned green).

But I never saw him blow one up, and now I wonder why!
I've never seen him lose his touch and explode one to the sky!
We know the world keeps turning while we are singing here
And we hope to have the fox put back together in the summer time next year.

Soph beat me to that last suggested challenge. How about completing this blues (suggested as a beginning by someone who was being sniffy about the 20's blues in an article recently, presumably a cross between Empty Bed Blues and Mean Ol' Bed Bug Blues):

I don't know why we are all bothering when Spaw can and should trump us all.

Speaking of weasels, tho, I once heard someone say they didn't have an inner child, but rather an inner weasel.

Then there is good old Billy Barlow. Surely someone can add a few verses to that one in honor of the unfortunate experience sustained by the late fox.

RtS, all I can think of in response is, "You coulda blowed my mind baby, but it wasn't enough...."

How do you defrag an entire mind???

"Over and Sons Garage in Aspatria"

Nobody has spotted Ass-patria?????

Isn't that a special technique for returning foxes back where they came from?

Seems to call for a syncopated shuffly little thing, "Aspatriate the Fox"

Or of course a foxtrot.

Over and Out at Over and Sons.

Not nearly enough dancing around this damn place. Think of the improved community relations if we would just dance each other around once in awhile.

I guess I'll have to start things off:

We Blew It In The Wind
(Tune: Blowing In The Wind)

How many times did I say 'hold the hose',
Before the fox tail flew by?
Yes, and how many times did it slip out its nose,
Before we gave its bottom a try?
The answer, officer, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Why did we think that this trick was gonna work?
At the time it seemed real fast and real quick,
Didn't we know we'd both end up looking like a jerk,
And the PETA people waving their sticks?
The curses and stones are flyin' in the wind,
And we're runnin' like we're flyin' in the wind!

Why didn't we stop when the gage hit ten pounds?
Why did we keep going 'till fifteen?
The sound that it made was just like amma rounds,
With fox schrapnel buzzin' inbetween,
The little furry bits went flyin' in the wind,
The furry bits went flyin' in the wind.

I agree, officer, it was not a brilliant plan,
For saving energy and some time,
Our school project failed, it's as flat as a dime,
We can't turn in something 'small as a dime,
It's summer school for us, 'cuz we blew it in the wind,
No final grade, we blew it in the wind.

BLOWNAPARTS RETREAT

{sung to blow the man down}

Come all ye young students of taxidermy,

Way hay blow the fox up,

I'll tell of the fate that has befallen me,

Give me more pressure to blow the fox up.

As a hobby I stuffed little critters you see,

Way hay.........

From Kudu to raccoon to fish from the sea,

Give me......

One day a man brought me a big wooden box,

Way hay......

I lifted the lid & inside was a fox,

Give me....

He said "I just bagged him way out in the west",

Way hay....

"I want you to stuff him cause I hear you're the best"

Give me......

"I am pretty good tho myself do I say",

Way hay.....

"Why I once stuffed a mermaid all the way from Norway",

Give me.....

"This little grey fox ain't no challange"I said,

Way hay.....

"And I won't have to kill him cause he's already dead",

Give me....

Now the first step you see is to strip off the pelt,

Way hay....

And to use some air pressure was the best way I felt,

Give me.......

So it's off to the forecourt with a fox in my arm,

Way hay.....

"I'll just use a little, it'll do him no harm",

Give me......

There was a knot in the hose,somebody had kinked her,

Way hay....

I got it untied & shoved it right up his sphincter,

Give me......

I thought this a good time that I could inspect um,

Way hay.....

While the air hose was pumping the pounds up his rectum,

Give me.........

His eyes started popping his belly was swellin,

Way hay.....

His body was getting as big as a mellon,

Give me......

Before I could stop it that critter let loose,

Way hay.....

And fur was a flying like crap through a goose,

Give me.....

A crowd gathered round, about they were millin,

Way hay.....

Then someone shouted "A fox he's been killin",

Give me......

Another one shouted "He's gotta be nuts",

Way hay.....

As I stood there all covered in fur & in guts,

Give me......

I ran for my home & I didn't look back,

Way hay......

Because that angry mob was about to attack,

Give me......

So hear my stern warning you lads & you lasses,

Way hay.....

Don't ever pump air up small critters asses,

Give me.......

Find a safe hobby that keeps you close to your homes,

Way hay blow the fox up,

Like joining the Mudcat or collecting garden gnomes,

Give me more pressure to blow the fox up.

Ron.

That was the only thing I could find that looked like there might be a story hiding in it. Unless you want the Sawzall Snowboard Team. They're out there too.

There was also one product review that said a sawzall in use always indicates someone's mistake being corrected, but there were no details. I suppose you could make that the challenge, what was the mistake and how did the sawzall undo it.

(Say, does Aine really check out the stories we give her for challenges? Or can we make up and file our own stories and she will run with them? I mean, Aspatria???? Now Purgatory Correctional in Hurricane was real, I checked that one, but...)

I need to know!

As regarding the sawzall -- Unfortunately, the Keeper does not see the humor and/or drama needed for a good Challenge! is this particular renovation narration. However, She would be interested if an appropriate article mentioning the aforementioned power tool could be found. So there's a challenge for all you sawzall fans -- go find a great story!

Another one shouted "He's gotta be nuts",

......

As I stood there all covered in fur & in guts,

......

I ran for my home & I didn't look back,

......

Because that angry mob was about to attack,

......

I locked my front door & I thanked god in heaven,

......

As granny stood guard with her 357,

....

Locked myself in the john & as I turned the key,

.....

Thought,"I coulda been dead like my uncle Harry",

......

I'm locked in my bathroom cause I'm riddled with fear,

.....

I'll just eat M&Ms & drink Osaka beer,

.....

So hear my stern warning you lads & you lasses,

....

Don't ever pump air up small critters asses,

.....

Find a safe hobby that keeps you close to your homes,

Way hay blow the fox up,

Like joining the Mudcat or collecting garden gnomes,

Give me more pressure to blow the fox up.

Aine told me to write some more words for this song,

Way hay what is it all for,

Time to drink Wild turkey cause it's getting too long,

I can't stand the pressure,can't write anymore.

Ron.

Aine,

FWIW--

I think this should be re-issued as a new special Challenge! to newer members. My theory is that the rest of us are just desensitized to the whole ass-blowing thing from our exposure to the world of Cleigh O-Possum.

This calls for Newbie energy. Maybe they are especially shy about doing these Song Challenge!s and need a prod as ONLY YOU can give. Like retitling the thread to grab their attention.... SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY FOR NEW MEMBERS... maybe explain what is a song challenge... I know, we should all know this by now but....

Well, here goes my entry....to the tune of House of the Rising Sun...

Old Over And Sons

There is a place in Aspatria
They call ole Over and Sons
It has been the ruin of many a poor fox
And me, oh, God, held one

I walked into the car garage,
A dead fox held within my arms.
I asked to use the air hose, Oh Lord
In the garage in Aspatria.

Oh I dabble in taxidermy
I though I knew what I am about;
I stuck the hose up the rectum, Lord
And pumped him full of air…

I filled the fox at 20 psi
Between the fur and the skin
All I had wanted was to loosen the pelt
Instead I blew him up

Fox bits went aflying
All over the car garage,
And everywhere was blood and gore
On the floor of Over and Sons

One foot in front of the other
I took flight from that damning shop
And hid inside my little house
Outside of Aspatria town.

I'm going back to Aspatria
To confess what I had done;
I'm going back to mop the floors
of old Over and Sons.

The Taxidermy Fox Boom Polka

Oh how I want to be a Taxidermist
'Cause stuffing dead mammals is my bag
I like to work with the scalpel and the fluff
Even though formaldehyde will make me gag

Oh one day I found some tasty roadkill
A fox that was perfect for to stuff
But I had to get the pelt off the rotting carcass
Without ripping it, I tried not to be rough

But the stupid pelt would not come off
Though I tried with all my might and main
I was about to give up on the smelly little bugger
When a light blub flashed on in my brain

So I loaded the fox in my car
And to the Garage down the lane I flew
And there, it was! The big compressed air tank
Which would see my endeavour through!

So I fed the air line up the bunghole of the fox
And 20p in the slot I did drop
But the carcass oh so smelling, just kept on a-swelling
And I couldn't get the thing to stop!

And then
And then
And gentlemen, and then...

Like a hot-air balloon on a cactus farm
Like your fist on the clock when it rings it's alarm
Like a pressure-cooker that too long has sat
BOOM it was over just like that!

Like a pretty girl with a wink of her eye
Like fireworks shooting up in the sky
Like a woopie-cushion on which someone has sat
BOOM it was over just like that!

Like a bratty kid who won't behave
Like a hotdog in a microwave
Like a cheese-laden trap and a big grey rat
BOOM it was over just like that!

Fox guts exploding all over the place
And the Animal Rights folks callin' me a disgrace
You're a Song Challenge! topic in seconds flat
BOOM it was over JUST LIKE THAT!

Ok! I'll give this a try. I should be doing other things but...

Honey, I blew up the fox!
To the tune of "The Fox Went Out On A Chilly Night"

A fox was slain on a moonlit night,
Swerved left on the road when he should have swerved right,
Got crunched under wheels that he tried to bite
And wound up dead on the road-o, road-o, road-o
Got crunched under wheels that he tried to bite
And wound up dead on the road-o.

A taxidermist put him into a box,
Was happy he had found a dead fox,
While he was out and about on his walk,
And he took it home to stuff-o, stuff-o, stuff-o
While he was out and about on his walk,
And he took it home to stuff-o

He opened the box while in his shop,
Looked in side and then he stopped,
There's got to be a better way he thought,
To skin this poor dead fox-o, fox-o, fox-o
There's got to be a better way he thought,
To skin this poor dead fox-o.

He looked at his knives and his scalpel too,
Considering the messy job they'd do,
He thought some high pressure air would do,
To easily peel the skin-o, skin-o, skin-o
He thought some high pressure air would do,
To easily peel the skin-o.

To Over & Sons he made his way,
In the Market Place in Aspatri-ay
And in the box the dead fox lay,
As he made his way to the town-o, town-o, town-o
And in the box the dead fox lay,
As he made his way to the town-o

He picked up the end of the air hose,
Tried to fit it to the animal's nose,
But even duct tape couldn't keep it closed
And it fell out on the ground-o, ground-o, ground-o
But even duct tape couldn't keep it closed
And it fell out on the ground-o.

So he laid the fox out on the ground
Studied the problem while wearing a frown,
But the answer came from a person in the crowd,
Stick it up his arsehole, arsehole, arsehole
But the answer came from a person in the crowd,
Stick it up his arsehole, arsehole, arsehole

So he stuck it up the fox's sphincter,
All the while his face got pinker,
And the coins into the slot went clink,
And the air began to pump-o, pump-o, pump-o
And the coins into the slot went clink,
And the air began to pump-o.

With the air the fox swelled and swelled,
The taxidermist tapped to loosen the pelt,
He wondered what it was he smelt,
When the fox blew all a part-o, part-o, part-o
He wondered what it was he smelt,
When the fox blew all a part-o.

Bits and pieces flew here and there,
Some on the ground and some in the air,
The crowd was splattered on their shirts and hair
And began to get quite mad-o, mad-o, mad-o
The crowd was splattered on their shirts and hair
And began to get quite mad-o

The taxidermist they began to chase
But he had his running shoes well laced
And he ran into the policeman's place
And begged them to protect-o, protect-o, protect-o
And he ran into the policeman's place
And begged them to protect-o

They spoke to him in voices stern
He had, they hoped, his lesson learned,
When again his inspiration burned,
He'd not inflate a fox-o, fox-o, fox-o
When his inspiration burned,
He'd not inflate a fox-o.

Hose up his bum ... Fox On The Run... written by Tony Hazzard

He walks to the forecourt at the garage
He picks up the airhose and puts in his change
He was trying to do his own taxidermy
but when he was done it was too rearranged
With a hose (with a hose with a hose) up its bum

He put in the hose and the fox it exploded.
When asked by the cops he said if I had know ded
This may seem rude to you may seem rather crass
But I wouldn't have put that airhose up his ass
If I had only know that it would soo affect him
I wouldn't have pumped pressured air up his rectum
I'm glad the SPCA didn't take me for no rides
And I'll find another way to seperate the hides

He goes to the station to speak with the police men
The cops all call a son of a gun
The say next time better be much more careful
And not to attempt it when he's drinking rum Stuffing fox (Stuffing fox Stuffing fox ) on the rum

He'll drink a glass of wine boys to toast the good policemen
He'll learn more about the way to stuff a fox
And if tries to blow them up with air then
The next durned time he'll keep it in a box

With a hose (with a hose with a hose) up its bum

This is a wee bit of a diversion ... the song is to the air of "Reynard" from Sweeney's Men's first album. It's set in the area surrounding Derrymacash in the hinterland of Lurgan, County Armagh.

THE MONTIAGHS FOX HUNT
My name is Joe Doyle, I'm the master of hounds
We hunt for the foxes around Lurgan Town
From Castor's Bay to Slantry and west to Charlestown
We're the scourge of every fox who puts his head above the ground
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

Few are the foxes who slip through our net
But one fox remains, we're determined to get
I know him by his canter and the way he holds his tail
And I've made it my ambition, his dirty pelt to nail
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

We rose him at Muckery, one fine winter's day
Out towards Trasna, the fox made his way
His speed as fast as lightning, when he reached the Bannfoot Road
He glanced behind and sneered and changed his tack for Derrycrow
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

At the Devil's Elbow, he made a veer once more
There was some of us that thought that he was bound for Derryvore
But Reynard had us flustered, while we bickered he made hay
He headed back for Trasna, and thence towards The Bay
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

We followed at a distance, not making up much ground
At Derryveen his brush was seen and the horns did loudly sound
And out towards the High Moss he galloped like the wind
Two hundred hounds and forty riders galloped after him
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

The Rillagh and The Rallagh, the fox did circumvent
And out towards The Reckie, the hounds were on his scent
And just when all hands thought that he was bound for Portadown
He set off for Ballinary with no sign of slowing down
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

At Venagh Lane, yet again I blew upon the horn
To round the hounds, whose heads were down, their attitude forlorn
The news had come, they'd seen him run up Wolfs Island Hill
So buck up boys, let's make some noise, we're closing for the kill
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

In a classic pincer movement we split to left and right
And chased him up through Ruddle's Bogs we had him in full flight
When he reached the River Clauset, he was well and truly damned
No advance and no retreat, he had to make a stand
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

Well met my cunning Reynard I've cornered you at last
My hounds are poised to kill you but before you breathe your last
Have you any words of wisdom for those who've chased you down
Before you're ripped asunder by the pack of baying hounds
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

If you think you'll ever kill me, you'd better think again
None here could get the best of me, no dogs, no horse, no men
Before I would surrender to the huntsmen and the hounds
I will jump into the river, and it's there that I will drown
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

And in he plunged, which made me scream "Huntsmen, drag him out"
Water dripping from his brush, and dripping from his snout
He lay there cold and lifeless, he'd outsmarted me for good
I gathered up his carcass and I made for Silverwood
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

At McCaughley's garage, 'neath the sign that reads free air
My hands shook as I stuck the hose inside his derriere
They heard oul' Reynard popping at the Head of the Plain
And bits of Reynard's body next day littered Kiln Lane
Tally-ho hark away, tally-ho hark away
Tally-ho hark away me boys, away hark away

Derrymacash - BRAVO!

I especially like the fact that without the last verse it is a song I could use at ren-faire...
