Got your message Stu

The only other decent T parody I have is (The) Tale Of Blake's Cookling Skills which is a parody of the "ABC Song" by Traditional:

http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/traditional1150.shtml

I know its rather short as the OS is short, but it seemed to get a good write-up.

Regards. Jason.

Got your second message Stu,

I thought my second submission 'The Tale Of Blake's Cooking Skills' was valid, because it starts with T if you disregard the word 'The' (i.e Tale Of Blakes Cooking Skills)
