Subject: A Challenge for EVERYBODY!

Written By: Johnny_D on 07/16/04 at 1:41 pm

If I wasn't going to be so busy for the next 48 hours, I'd have a crack at this story myself.

So instead, I issue a challenge to anybody --- but especially to our British friends --- to write a parody about the following news story:

To 'Boogie Nights' as recorded by Heatwave (circa 1979)

(Doo...dy... Lights... Oh-oh-oh...)
(Doo...dy... Lights... Oh-oh-oh...)

Doody-Lights!
Drop your pants, get the power started
Doody-Lights!
It don't count if you've only farted
Brits, do your duty in brown
So we can light the lights here in London town!

(Got to do your duty... with your booty...)
(Got to do your duty... dump that doody...)

Doody-Lights!
Dump that funk, citizens and tourists
Doody-Lights! 
All backed up? We know what the cure is...

Our English food is renowned
For giving folks the runs, so just sit right down

Sit and do your duty, with your booty
Sh*ttin in the loo, we do our duty

Late at night...
Just unload and some lights we'll be seeing (seeing... seeing...)
Light the lights...
With your dumps, but we don't need your peeing (peeing... peeing...)

Doody-Lights!
Dump that funk, light up the museum
Doody-Lights!
Ex-hi-bits bright so we can see 'em

Brits, do your duty in brown
So we can light the lights here in London Town!

Here's one I've just submitted, then... to "Goldfinger" (as you'd probably guess):

sheesh power!
Generated from fourteen toilet blocks
Excrement rocks!

Then transmit power
Power that's oh, so brown, it's green
An eco-wet dream

The sign on the loo will invite you in here
They'll love it yet more if you've got diarrhoea
For instead of pouring it down the drain
They will make methane, it's

sheesh power!
Converted in microbial fuel cells
To cut down their bills

The Science Museum don't charge you a fee
So go and help them make electricity
Cut down on chemicals, water and bleach
Practising what they preach

Yes, it's sheesh power!

Produced from your sheesh!
Right... no sheesh

PS... "The Power of Love" (either the Huey Lewis or the Jennifer Rush variant) has an obvious parody ;)

Well, my little jubilant comment was not supposed to be part of the quote...

Oh well...
