Alrightey then! I've let you all rest for a couple of days now, so I'm expecting great things from my Challenge!rs -- This Challenge! was submitted by Amergin:

Reality Intrudes, Let's Hope It Doesn't Bite! -- NBC's top entertainment executives confessed this past June that they had misjudged the public interest in so-called reality shows and that NBC was now committed to finding a reality show of its own for next summer or sooner.

One such show the executives talked about extensively, though they said they did not yet have a deal, is called "Chains of Love," which consists of one young woman selecting 4 men she would like to date from a pool of about 100, and then being literally chained to those four men for several weeks, discarding them one at a time until she selects one winner. Garth Ancier, the president of NBC Entertainment, called it "a relationship show."

Go for it, Challenge!rs!!!

Chain of fools!

Perfect song already exists!

How about if we have to weave in Amos' worship idea?

Nope Kim...I heard it too. My initial thought was of those old Sylvester and Tweety cartoons where the cat and the bulldog get chained together at the pound and spend the whole time trying to get unhooked. The only way I'll watch this show is if they fall off a train trestle into a garbage dump, and end up hopping off into the sunset with their legs canned together.....

Well I just sent in my entry form.....

Here's my entry:

On A TV Show

I see the audience all clapping
As I speak in the microphone,
And there to watch me are my momma and my poppa
On the stage there stands my sweet Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's so good to have my own TV show.

cho: Yes, they'll all come to see me,
Laughing gently and hand aclappin',
It's so good to have my own TV show.

Our new house is so pretty,
And the paint is freshly dried,
And there's an old oak tree that I nailed the swing on.
Down the road I walk with my sweet Mary,
Hair of hold and lips like cherries,
It's good to have my own TV show.

Chorus:

Then I awake and look around me,
At the four people chained all around me,
And I realize that I was only dreamin'
'Cause there's a host and a TV camera,
Shackled together we'll walk at daybreak;
Because I'm on a damn reality showBR>

(final chorus)
Yes, they'll all come to see me
Eyes glazed, and mouths adrooling
As they watch me on a damn reality show.

Drawn and Quarter'd for Love

She wanted fame
She wanted fortune
She wanted love with
That "Special" guy
She had no luck
In the bar-rooms
Why not give TV a try?

She was drawn and quartered for Love
With a shackle around each limb
She knew what she wanted
But damn, they didn't tell him!

One went east
And one Went west
And though she tried
and tried her best
She couldn't go
two ways at once
And so they pulled her apart

She was drawn and quartered for Love
With a shackle around each limb
She knew what she wanted
But damn, they didn't tell him!

Two wunnerful, wunnerful, songs to start us off! Amergin, here's a Silver B.L.O.B. to you for:

Yes, they'll all come to see me
Eyes glazed, and mouths adrooling
As they watch me on a damn reality show

And MMario, here's a Silver B.L.O.B. to you for:

And though she tried
and tried her best
She couldn't go
two ways at once

Well done, both of you! And SINSULL, I'd love to see the song you could write about being chained to Cletus & Co. -- Go for it!!

Assume for the moment that the young lady select is named Clare (for purposes of the song!!)

Well there's four who share the chains
And we work hard for the Lass.
Gotta go but they're all sleeping,
I hope the feeling will pass.
Well it's a long Chain from Clare to here,
Well there's a few chains tween Clare and Here
Well it's a long long way, we get riper by the day
wish I could lose my chain from Clare to Here.

Now the only time I feel alright
Is when I'm into drinkin
It eases up the chain a bit
And it filters out the stinkin
Well it's a long Chain from Clare to here,
Well there's a few chains tween Clare and Here
Well it's a long long way, we get riper by the day
wish I could lose my chain from Clare to Here.

The tune is 'Scots wha hae'.

Here's the latest TV show
Find a girl to have a go
Chained to four guys, now you know
TV reality
One by one eliminate
Till at last, by will or fate
Just one is left. Now is this great
Or chains and slavery ?

For the winner there's a prize
That's why I'm chained to four guys
But in their plans they've not been wise
To practicality
To four guys chained is bad enough
But there's all the other stuff
Cameras, lights and mikes with fluff
Nowhere for me to flee

Where I go, I go with four
Like shadows follow on the floor
Where no man has gone before
Four guys go with me
All for one, and one for all
But when I hear nature's call
Turn your faces to the wall
While I have a wee.

Every day and every hour
Like a prisoner in the Tower
The same companions, and no power
Away from them to creep
Five in bed might sound like fun
But there's nowhere I can turn
All attentions I will spurn
For I need my sleep

Then at last the show is done
I don't care who lost or won
Now I'm free to have some fun
Revenge is sweet and free
Director, with his camera crew
Are chained together in the loo
They'll be there for a week or two
I've thrown away the key.

15 MINUTES OF FAME

{sung to Folsom Prison Blues}

Andy Warhol told me,

I'd have 15 minutes of fame,

But he forgot to mention,

I'd be tied up with a chain,

I was only searchin for love,

I can't believe my eyes,

Cause I gotta share my true love,

With 3 other guys.

The boys in the big office,

Thought this show would sell for sure,

But the more I hang around here,

It smells more like cow manure,

I was only searchin for love,

East,West,South,& North,

I can handle sloppy seconds,

But not thirds & forths.

Now I am the sole survivor,

The other 3 are done,

Looks like I found my true love,

I guess she'll be the one,

Now we'll spend our life together,

Just watchin our TV,

They said they can't unchain us,

Cause they can't find the key.

Ron.

OK so we got NBC and reality T.V. This song is about a couple of wannabe actors, who could ACT enough like real people to get on the show. BTW, the parody is from NBC's Number 2 rated show.

Song: I'll Be Chained to You Artist: The Rembrandts (sort of)

So no one told you television had be this bent You had to take this sillly job to pay the rent It's auditions just aren't paying off But you took this job too so don't you dare to scoff

I'll be chained to you (When the cameras roll) I'll be chained to you (But don't treat me too cold) I'll be chained to you ('Cause I get to choose)

You're still in bed at ten we all got up at eight We've had our breakfast, but buddy you are late. You shouldn't have stayed up playing parchisi Youcan stay buy will have to get down on your knees

cause

I'll be chained to you (When the cameras roll) I'll be chained to you (But don't treat me too cold) I'll be chained to you (and I'm chained to you too)

Someone to be chained with, oh you're such a pain with All the things you know about me but can't yeu see Someone to play pretend with, someone to see the end with Someone I always laugh with Even at my worst you won't tell on me

It's like you have the producer's ear And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

Take these chains from my heart, said number four
It's plain you don't love me any more
You spend less time with me
Than with one and two and three
Take these chains from my heart, said number four

Take these chains from my heart, said number three
It's plain you don't care a fig for me
Numbers one and two
Are the ones you want to woo
Take these chains from my heart, said number three

Take these chains from my heart, said number two
I'm no longer in favour dear with you
It's clear that number one
Is more your idea of fun
Take these chains from my heart, said number two

Take these chains from my heart, said number one
I don't want you to be my honeybun
You're a heartless bitch, and me?
I'm just some bimbo on TV
Take these chains from my heart said number one
