Alrightey then, Challenge!rs -- Are you ready to combat the whims and wiles of Mother Nature? Has your dog/cat been looking askance at you lately? Has your budgie become suddenly sullen? Here's a Challenge! for you then -- You have a choice to (1) pick one of the stories for an entry song, OR (2) go for the big doggie biscuit and incorporate all the stories into your entry song.

These are all true stories, so if you hear the pitter patter of claws or paws behind you some night, you might just wonder

What The Heck Is Going On Here?

Chicken-Duck "Troops" Battle Locusts (Xinjiang, China) - Twice a day, over 700,000 trained chickens and ducks chow down on locusts at the foot of Tianshan Mountain in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, northwest China. By nightfall, the chicken-duck troops can devour nearly 100 million locusts, making a welcome dent in one of the region's worst locust plagues in years. Locusts have affected 2.6 million hectares of farmland in the northwest China region. To fight back, the region has brought in some 100,000 ducks to join the locust-killing bio-troops made up of chickens, migrating starlings and microspores. The bio-troops have helped kill locusts on over 270,000 hectares of land and the region has decided to double its number of ducks and chickens for its fight against the locusts next year. Ma Yonggang, a herdsman on the northern side of Tianshan Mountain, is breeding 5,000 locust-killing brown ducks.

Battles On the Sanglochon Line (Var, France) - Marauding bands of "sanglochons" -- a cross between a wild boar (sanglier) and domestic pig (cochon) -- have been wreaking havoc throughout the Alpes-Maritime region Var, a picturesque county in south-east France. Marcel Laugier, a local wildlife officer, said: "They're everywhere. It's like a plague. They come into inhabited areas and root through bins and dig up lawns and drink out of swimming pools. They're extremely greedy. I get a constant stream of calls from people complaining about them." Sanglochons were first bred in Belgium and north-west France at the end of the last century. The breed gradually died out, but was resurrected in the 1980s when farmers again began rearing them. The experiment didn't prove successful, however, and, unable to find a market for their pigs, many farmers simply released them into the wild. Their fast breeding rate has meant that over the last 20 years their numbers have increased by 600 percent, and it is now estimated there are over 10,000 of them roaming the Var alone. "There's no doubt that if they get into the wild they can be a real problem," says Michel Van der Oost, a sanglochon breeder from Neufchateau in Belgium. "They can be very naughty and willful, and aggressive too sometimes. Mind you, they make wonderful sausages."

(From McGrath of Harlow) Don't Monkey With Us, Monsieur! (Paris, France) - With pitbulls, dobermans and rottweilers under fire from the French authorities, youth gangs in the depressed city suburbs have discovered an alternative way to intimidate their rivals - with attack monkeys. "They're ultra-fashionable," said Didier Lecourbe, a police officer from the depressed Paris suburb of Aubervilliers. "There are dozens of them. Kids take them out on leads, and even carry baby monkeys around in nappies. But these animals can be very dangerous indeed." Imported illegally through Spain from Gibraltar, Morocco or Algeria, the Barbary apes are known for their powerful limbs, sharp teeth and short tempers. Veterinary experts say they can be turned into frightening and effective weapons. "Removed from their natural habitat, they can become highly aggressive," says Marie-Claude Bomsel of the natural history museum, "They bite, and their favoured method of attack is to hurl themselves at people's heads." Police believe as many as 500 Barbary apes may have been smuggled into France in the past two years. "Now the authorities have cracked down on pitbulls and the rest, apes look like becoming the new weapon of choice," said Mr Lecourbe. "We've heard of monkey-fights being run in tower block basements."

Monkeys See, Monkeys Threw (Jarratt, Virginia) Three monkeys hurled bananas and crab apples at cars on Interstate 95, then fled into the woods, police said. Police believe the monkeys escaped while being taken to the state fair in Richmond or a circus in North Carolina. State Trooper Mike Scott was flagged down Sunday by a driver who had pulled over near Jarratt. "When I walked up to the car, it looked like a banana had been smeared on the side," Scott said. The woman told him a monkey had thrown the fruit about a mile back. "I started laughing," Scott said. But he drove to the scene of the attack and found a van and a station wagon on the side of the highway. "A man said, 'I know this sounds crazy, but a monkey threw an apple at our car,"' Scott said. Just then, something hit the van. "Lo and behold there were three brown monkeys in an oak tree throwing crab apples," Scott said. The primates jumped down, ran across the highway and escaped into more trees.

Go For It, Challenge!rs!!

Dr. Doolittle's Answering Macine Message
by Alex "Mousethief" Riggle

Thank you for calling Dr. Doolittle
We're sorry he can't take your call
The doctor is out of the office today
And probably will be all Fall.

First he's off to Xinjiang, China
We hope you'll wish him luck
They've thought up a new, clever way
To fatten Peking Duck

They want him to train their birdies
To eat their locust pests
One million strong they'll march to war
Then march back to their nests

Then he's flying out to Paris
Where monkeys are running loose
They jump on ladies' bonnets
And bite them in the caboose

They French hope he will stop them
We're really not sure how
But just to be safe, he's bringing a case
Of Purina Monkey Chow

Then he's off by train to the Alps
Where pigs are raising hell
They breed like rabbits on Viagra
They're rude and greedy, and smell.

Of course the French are used to that
This is a tourist region
But American tourists come in small groups
And not in a porcine legion

Then the doctor flies back to the states
To Florida, where windshield wipers
Can't clean off the fruit that monkeys hurl
There's jealousy among the snipers

They're hoping the doctor can make 'em stop
And I don't think he'll refuse to
And once he's done they'll go back to their guns
Like the people there are used to

So we're sorry the doctor can't take your call
But you see how very busy he's been
But he'll return your call if you leave your name
--If he ever gets back here again.

WELL I'LL BE A SON OF A PITCH

Way down in far Virginia
Along I ninety five
There's monkeys chucking fruit about
That threatens limb and life

Now Trooper Scott was on patrol
When summoned to the scene
His first thought was "what a**hole
Is making fun of me"?

When he got there a woman
Said a banana has been thrown
Its gone all over my engine
Thrown by a monkey, brown

He still found this amusing
In fact it was a hoot
Until the band of monkeys
pelted him with fruit

and one of the apples was spot on
and caught him in the rear
the next one curved and fluttered
and caught him in the ear

He summoned up reinforcements
Of men with guns and nets
And doctors with jabs for tetanus
And JenEllen and her vets

Now the apes have been recaptured
But one has a new job today
He's to pitch in professional baseball
And the Cardinals have a Primate to play

Here's a brief one I did earlier, as they say on a gun law thread some time back, but it seems apposite,

The "right to bear arms" is a right I disdain, the "right to arm bears" is the right I proclaim, and the "right to arm possums" out there in the timber and give those brave hunters a time to remember.

THE MONKEY MAFIA

(Sung to Riders on the storm by the Doors)

We're the monkey mafia,
Watch out or we'll get ya,
Your kneecaps we will break,
And your money we will take,
We terrorize ol'gay Par'ee,
It sure beats swingin from a tree,
We're the monkey mafia.

We're the simian wise guys,
Don't dare look us in the eyes,
On a leash we will be led,
We will jump right at your head,
We are very much in vogue,
If you are a young french rogue,
We're the simian wise guys.

We're evolutionary thugs,
With our banana eatin mugs,
We used to swing on vines,
Now we're enjoyin better times,
When you're held up by an ape,
There's little chance of an escape,
We're evolutionary thugs.

We're the Paris primate clan,
We'll steal & rob all that we can,
We're the gorrillas in the mist,
Pray you're not on our hit list,
In your town we'll throw a fit,
In your streets we'll go apeshit,
We're the Paris primate clan.

We're the monkey madness crew,
And we're out to strongarm you,
When you see us better hide,
Got Jane Goodall on our side,
We're the darkside of Darwins dreams,
And we're scheming up new schemes,
We're the monkey madness crew.

We're just apes that are no good,
And we're comin to your hood,
We're monkeys with bad attitudes,
We're just knuckle draggin dudes,
We're takin over on your street,
Cause we got thumbs on all our feet,
We're just apes that are no good.

Ron, first instalment.

I Got An Ole Brown Ape

The Monkey Came Back

The Revenge of The Animal Fair

I tried to incorporate all of the animal related challanges past & present into this one. Hope I didn't miss any.

OH,OH,WOE IS ME
(sung to Home on the range)

I was sitting at home,
And thru my channels did roam,
On my tv there in the den,
There on CNBC,
The man said to me,
The world's ending, details at ten.

(Chorus)
Oh,oh,woe is me,
I'm afraid that we're close to the end,
Wildlife has gone mad,
And they're acting real bad,
And the Mudcat's been my only friend.

There's ducks & chickens in China,
And there ain't none that's fina,
They eat locusts that are feeding on crops,
But the locusts are winning,
And the crops are all thinning,
But they'll eat until the plague stops.

(chorus)

Now they've got problems in France,
With an odd circumstance,
Wild boars are running rampant & free,
And from monkeys imported,
There's been trouble reported,
On the streets in the town of Paree'.

(chorus)

And the fun never stops,
Monkeys throw fruit at cops,
Here at home along route 95,
They seem to be so inclined,
To have revenge on their mind,
Now they're wanted dead or alive.

(chorus)

Now who woulda thunk,
That a raccoon that's drunk,
Could possibly cause such a fuss,
But it's just as I fear,
Too much Osaka beer,
He took the boat cause he missed the bus.

(chorus)

I was driving one day,
And while on my way,
I stopped for a tankfull of gas,
And what did I see,
Sitting there next to me,
Was a fox with a hose up his ass.

(chorus)

And I heard in Norway,
There's a moose there today,
That likes to dance on the hood of your car,
And she's real she's not fake,
Swimmin round in her lake,
Dear Selma's become a real star.

(chorus)

The little honey bee,
Flies around don't you see,
Makin honey & doin his things,
He was not meant to be,
A lab rat you see,
Or a flying transistor with wings.

(chorus)

Now the worst of them all,
Is mankind in the mall,
When they dress in a big bunny suit,
Supposed to be meek & mild,
But they're crazy & wild,
They'll turn ugly when supposed to be cute.

(chorus)

And in London each spring,
They do the strangest thing,
I can't hardly believe my eyes,
They spit out the poo,
Left there by the Kudu,
To see who goes home with a prize.

Oh,Oh, Woe is me,
I'm afraid that we're close to the end,
Wildlife has gone mad,
Mankind's acting real bad,
And the Mudcat's been my only friend.

Ron.

Wonderful.Wonderful. Maybe there is a spin-off opportunity for Marlin Perkin's "Wild Kingdom" show here... Anyhoo, here's my contribution, composed while listening to sea shanties and eating animal crackers.

I'm a man of the world, well travelled am I
There is no place that I've not wandered
But now I'll ne'er leave home, no never no more
I'll not leave, not for love, gold nor plunder

Join me now lads and stand me a glass
And my stories of woe to you I will pass
These are tales tall but these tales are true
Just as sure as I sit here drinking with you

As I lay with a comely lass in a mountain meadow in France
A stampede of wild boars scared her back into her pants
Quickly back into her pants
I'll never hike those meadows again, lads, for it is no place for courting
The coitis there is interrupted by the rooting and the snorting
The pigs in France they do hinder romance, it isn't very sporting

A fair mamselle in Paris I did meet, sweet and long did we embrace
Her husband did discover us and tossed a monkey in my face
A scurvey scratchy monkey in my face
I'll ne'er go back to France again, my friends, for the customs there are strange
Six months in the hospital, my handsome face to rearrange
Six months in the hospital, my handsome face to rearrange

I met a girl in China she was bright and sweet
Her job it was to train the birds the locusts for to eat
the plague of locusts for to eat
I'll ne'er go back to China, boys, as I found it strange to see
For the chickens and ducks in China they go to university
The chickens and ducks in China are trained in university

A lovely Virginia girl and I were parked along the interstate
A gang of monkeys pelted the car just as things were going great
But our love will have to wait
And I'll never return to Virginia, boys, for it's surely not amusing
The monkeys in Virginia there my lust they were defusing
With apples and bananas they throw to interrupt seducing


Peace,
Bardford

Well done to all the above challengers - a good set of songs. We seem to have a soft spot for animals, but as this is the Mudcat, I suppose that's understandable.

This wants a French cafe-style accordion accompaniment - something like 'Those Canaan Days' from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat'
Sanglochon Saucisson

There's a restaurant I know of in Var, France
In a back street in a quaint old French town
We found it completely by bon chance
It seemed just a little run down

Still the menu was tempting good value
The aroma, it sang of great food
We entered and sat at a table
An aperitif made us feel good

Each course as it came was outstanding
Les escargots with garlic a treat
Daube de saumon, Boeuf Bourgignone, tarte Tatin
The best that I ever did eat

We sat back, replete and contented.
'Mes compliments to the patron!'
'Monsieur, 'e will come in a minute'
From the kitchen came a sanglochon!

Imagine my startled reaction
ButI spoke to the piglike chef still
'Your cuisine, my dear sir, is amazing
Pray, why do you cook, if you will ?

'Monsieur, I am happy to tell you
We sanglochons know how to cook
I found out this fact quite by accident
While browsing an old cookery book'

'In a chapter on French charcuterie
I came on this phrase quite by chance:
'Dear reader, note well, the sanglochon
Makes the best sausages in all France!'

(Sorry, couldn't resist the twisted interpretation of the challenge)

Les escargots with garlic a treat
Daube de saumon, Boeuf Bourgignone, tarte Tatin
The best that I ever did eat

The Food Chain Gang

"Well look at all that fodder!" said the locust to his kin,
"We'll just jump down to eat it all and multiply again!"
So into all those fields they flew, excited by their luck,
And never guessed that they'd be having dinner with a duck.

They're low on the food chain ... yeah ...
Way low on the food .. chain .. gang ...
It doesn't matter if you think you're eating mighty fine,
There's someone who might munch on you a little up the line -
Just part of the food ... chain .. gang.

"Well look at all those hoppers!" said the ducklings to their dam.
The next day they could waddle back, just munching as they swam.
Beneath his coolie hat the farmer calmly eyed the flock,
Not one of them thought "Peking Duck!" would that be such a shock?

They're low on the food chain ... yeah ...
Way low on the food .. chain .. gang ...
It doesn't matter if they help you find a better meal,
There's someone up the line who thinks you have some mouth appeal -
Just part of the food ... chain .. gang.

"Well look at those fowl sloppings!" said the porker to his sow,
"Don't let them trick you back into that sty! Be careful now!"
They rooted garbage bins and garden rows but stayed aloof,
'Till Jaques the hunter spied himself some sausage on the hoof.

They're low on the food chain ... yeah ...
Way low on the food .. chain .. gang ...
It doesn't matter if you run and forage for your self,
There's always someone who can see you fit his larder shelf -
Just part of the food ... chain .. gang.

Just part of the food ... chain .. gang.

Just part of the food ... chain .. gang.

Sing the verses with sort of a lazy talking interrupted blues, the kind where the instruments just sort of emphasize the turn of each line (although I can't think of an example right now, darnit) and then swing over to a jazzy chick vocal trio thing with a walking bass for the chorus(es).

(And all of my ideas on how to fit the monkeys into this were waaaay to silly ... McMaybe McMore McLater)

Dear Scotsbard - McWunnerful! ;-) I do believe this is your very first Challenge! entry, is it not? Congrats and cudos for joining the 'gang'. And here's your first (of many, I hope) Silver B.L.O.B.s for:

A Silver B.L.O.B. is a Silver Best Line O' Bull award that is given during a Challenge! to the best bits of verse.

To clarify the 'bull' reference, check out the Song Challenge! Winners page and the names of the 'real' awards ;-)

Dear Song Challengers,
My name is Bardford and I'm a Challaholic. I woke up in the middle of the night with this cavorting in my head (Fans of T-Rex-the band, not the dinosaur- might recognize Bang a Gong):

Sanglachon
On my lawn
Sanglochon

Then this, for which I apologize publicly to Eric Bogle whose lovely and lyrical song is the basis for this tasteless attempt. The song, of course is Willie McBride, or Green Fields of France, although my version is entitled:

Spleen Things on his Pants

Well how do you do, I see by your side
Some creature has rendered a gash in your hide
From the angle of entry it looks like the horn
Of a pig or a boar your belly has torn.

And I smell by your campfire you've something to roast
Did you cause the mad pig to give up the ghost?
I hope your wound heals quickly and that it heals clean
There is nothing so horrid as bacillus porcine.

CHORUS:
D'you cook sanglochon slowly, in pieces or wholly
Do you marinade first, in beer or in wine?
Did you learn to cook here in the forest
Would you copy the recipe for us?

Verse 2:
The sun shines no more on the pigs here in France.
They've sniffed their last truffle, they've danced their last dance
No sanglachons wild the land will allow
No rampaging swine, no boars or sows now.
Because of one man who dare take a stand
Against the wild scourge marauding the land
Dispatching the herd with a single hand
The whole crossbred lot spitted & panned.

CHORUS

Verse 2:
Well, I can't help but wonder now, though I have tried,
Is how can you eat with the hole in your side
One would think that with the size of your wound
Any foodstuffs partaken would end up on the ground.
Perhaps your cooking was all done in vain
For eating the food must cause you some pain
I hope you don't collapse under the strain
And recommend you acquire some novacaine.

CHORUS

Verse 3:

And ere I go off to leave you behind
Would you mind sharing a taste of the lovely pork rind?
Although with wild meat I'm not overly keen
The brisket is actually quite tender and lean
You've rather the touch when cooking wild game
It can be very tricky over an open flame
I daresay your skill would bring fortune and fame
If you don't take up cuisine it would be a shame.

CHORUS


Sorry.

This to the tune of 'Sam the Skull' as featured on This thread

Kung Foo Quack

Chorus
I'm a duck, I'm a duck, I'm a Peking duck
And my name is Kung Foo Quack
I do ill, and I kill with my beak or bill
When I go in to attack
I'm not the kind of duck that just lives in muck
When the locusts swarm around
I'm the kind of duck that brings bad luck
Where those evil things abound


In the Tianshan mountains you can hear them say
"Hurry, send for Kung Foo Quack
There's a huge swarm of locusts heading right this way
And they're going to attack"
So my squad and me readily agree
To deploy ourselves with speed
We attack the swarm, do them lots of harm
And have ourselves a right good feed.

Chorus

Now the paddy fields all give sky-high yields
And this isn't down to luck
Someone had it right when with great foresight
He got a hundred thousand duck
Microspores and hens join in the fray
When the plague are on the wing
And a weapon new to mix in the brew
The top secret killer starling

Chorus

When you eat your rice, thinking 'This is nice"
Just remember Kung Foo Quack
He's a killer keen, organic and bright green
Who loves locusts for a snack
But should the plague of locusts fail
Whatever will you do?
It's not too absurd to think perhaps this bird
Will be coming after you!

Chorus

The entries are so good I felt I couldn't match what has already been written. Please accpt this humble submission.

TO KEEP THE THREAT AT BAY.
You have heard the tales of China where the ducks stand guard all day,
And they eat the dreaded locust to keep that threat at bay,
The ducks are tough the ducks are hard
As through the garden and fields they guard
They March, March, March,

March, March, March,
The ducks they march all day,
Eating locusts by the peck
To keep the threat at bay.

In France the Sanglochon rampage through the pools and yards,
Rooting through the gardens and building up their lard,
The pigs they root, the pigs they loot,
But the French with guns the pigs they shoot.
And they cook, cook, cook,

Cook, Cook, Cook,
The French they cook all day,
Making sausages chops and hams,
To keep the threat at bay.

In Paris monkeys have the say of hoodlums and of punks,
Who sic 'em on their enemies where they will rip out chunks.
The monkeys rip, the monkeys tear,
They rip off noses and tear off hair
As they bite, bite, bite,

bite, bite, bite,
The monkeys rip and maim
The French punks toss 'em at ya
To keep the threat at bay.

So when you go through ol' Virginny, on the road called Ninety Five.
And the fruit comes flying at ya as behind the wheel you drive,
Be grateful that the monkeys,
That you see up in the trees,
Only throw throw, throw

Throw Throw, Throw
They throw the fruit away
Apples and bananas go,
To keep the treat at bay.

It's all that came to my mind. ;)

Hello Muddah, hello Faddah
I write to you from across the water,
China's very entertaining
But you should see the bugs that it's been raining.

They've got locusts by the tons,
They've called in poultry as their big guns.
Things are really fowl in Xinjiang,
For there are ducks and chickens out the ying-yang.

Every locust becomes a plop,
And this plopping, it never stops.
The smell is really quite obscene,
And now the Yellow River it flows green.

Take me home, Oh Muddah, Faddah,
Come get me, I hate rice water,
I'm stuck here, out in the muck,
Where I might get eaten by a duck.

Hello Granny, hello Gramps,
I write to you from south-east France,
Where I'm in L'hospital,
For I was rudely mangled by a sow.

I was swimming in the hostel pool,
A heard of pigs came, I saw their drool,
They were hungry and very whiney,
When I ran away one gored me in the hiney.

I'll be here a day or two,
They want to see if I got swine flu.
I'd just come from gay Paree,
Where I was robbed and mugged by a monkey.

Take me home, Oh Granny, Gramps,
Come get me, I do hate France,
With apes here, there's no fighting chance,
And there's a hog who wears my underpants.

Dear Uncle Henry, and Aunt Verbenia,
I write to you from Jarratt, Virginia,
I'll be home a week from Monday,
But first I must recover my Hyundai.

I'd just come out of the Karaoke bar,
When an ugly monkey stole my car.
He pelted me with apples too,
When I went outside to try and find the loo.

Take me home, Henry and Verbenia,
Come get me, I hate Virginia,
I might not get home alive,
Cuz, I've got to drive I-95.

Reading through the various components of the challenge, it struck me that we humans'd better watch out ... and the following ditty emerged.

To the tune of "The Rising Of The Moon"

REVENGE AND VICTORY

"Oh then tell me Tiggywinkle
Tell me why you hurry so"
"Hush and listen, Brock the badger
I've some news that you must know
There's been called a gathering
Of all beasts upon the earth
At the rising of the moon tonight
War will be declared"

War will be declared
War will be declared
At the rising of the moon tonight
War will be declared"

"Oh then tell me Tiggywinkle
On whom shall we wage war?"
"On the humans who've suppressed us
But now their time is o'er
For tonight we launch our battle
Via land and air and sea
And we shall not rest until we've gained
Revenge and victory"

Revenge and victory
Revenge and victory
We shall not rest until we've gained
Revenge and victory

"Oh then tell me Tiggywinkle
Is our cause both true and just?"
"No juster and no truer cause
As animals we must
Make a stand against the tyrant
Who has bound us up in chains
"To hell, domestication!
No more shall we be tamed!"

No more shall we be tamed!
No more shall we be tamed!
To hell, domestication!
No more shall we be tamed!

From many a sett and den and holt
Throughout that fateful night
Noses twitched and talons itched
And little eyes burnt bright
Beaks and teeth and sharpened claws
The signal will come soon
And a hundred million beasts will strike
At the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon
At the rising of the moon
And a hundred million beasts will strike
At the rising of the moon
