    For the above Blimey Cow video, I left the following comment. (Someone enjoyed it enough to request that I post it here.)

    To the Tune of “Breakfast” by the Newsboys:

    Hold the like, put back the retweet;
    They are pointless now to count.
    We gather here for the eulogy
    Of our late friend’s Twitter account.

    Friends and followers say the motto
    That he taught us to repeat:
    “You will lose it in the real world
    If Twitter’s your reality.”

    Back when the haters said his words were wrong,
    Every moment he would own it and then move along.
    Ah, none of us knew his final post would come so soon,
    But before he hit his limit, he composed this tune:

    When you see sick burns,
    And how the world has turned
    To making one another bitter…
    When your Father finds you,
    May these words remind you
    That your hope is not in Twitter.

    Friends and followers, don’t yet hit send,
    Though you want to share your thoughts;
    That day his final message was penned,
    His heart was right with God.

    Those here without the Lord, how do you cope?
    For this morning, we don’t mourn like those who have no hope.
    Now get set, internet, and sing sweet like a bird.
    With hashtags ready, say already he’s remembered.

    When you see sick burns,
    And how the world has turned
    To making one another bitter…
    When your Father finds you,
    May these words remind you
    That your hope is not in Twitter.

    I made a parody of TØP’s latest song “Level of Concern” about the VeggieTales reboot TBN has releasing through its new streaming service “Yippee”. The parody is below. There are a number of VeggieTales references in it.

    FYI: The second verse takes some imagery from Lyle the Kindly Viking. To make it work, I also pulled from the fact that there once was a quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings named “Christian Ponder”. Probably a bit of a reach, but it’s what I used. Also some of the punctuation may seem off, but it’s to try to help fit the text to the pacing of the actual song lyrics.

    Level of Concern

    (Veggie, Tales)
    (Veggie, Tales)

    Wonder on the brain, world has gone insane
    Things are beginning to worsen (mmm)
    I can’t help but think I haven’t felt this way
    Since I saw the Netflix version

    Wondering:
    Will someone, decide to intervene?
    Or is this the way it ends?

    ‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
    And you told me ev’rything we learned
    From our friends Larry, and Bob of VeggieTales
    About how God made us special, loves us very much

    Ponder on the brain, efforts went in vain,
    Kindly throwing up a prayer now
    I don’t really know if they would cope
    But I won’t give up hope;
    A reboot seems a good idea now

    Wondering:
    Will we get, one in this quarantine?
    Or is this the way it ends?

    ‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
    And you told me ev’rything we learned
    From our friends Larry, and Bob of VeggieTales
    About how God made us special, loves us very much

    (yeah) God made us special, loves us very much
    (yeah) God made us special, loves us very much
    Bring down my, level of concern
    Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much (yeah)

    (ooooooo oh ohhhhhh)
    ‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
    And you told me ev’rything we learned
    From our friends Larry, and Bob of VeggieTales
    About how God made us special, loves us very much

    Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much
    Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much
    Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much
    Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much

    Please tell me now
    Remind me now

    ‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
    And you told me ev’rything we learned
    From our friends Larry, and Bob of VeggieTales
    About how God made us special, loves us very much

    (yeah) God made us special, loves us very much
    (yeah) God made us special, loves us very much
    You could bring down my, level of concern
    Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much (yeah)

    In a world, where Larry has no hairbrush
    And it’s all rather hush-hush
    It’s nice that you address
    (My level of concern)
    How God’s way is the best
    (Remind me that God made us special, loves us very much)
    I need that

    This is a parody referring to the frustration I’ve had with musical songs at times, since the range you have to have in order to sing a lot of them properly (without fundamentally changing parts of the melody) is not something I possess. T’m trying to be more thankful for the voice I’ve been gifted with, but this is a funny and lighthearted way to express my feelings about it

    Range isn’t enough (Never Enough from The Greatest Showman Parody)

    I’m trying to hit that note
    Attempted every day
    I’ll have to let it go
    It was my dream to just sing
    High school musical
    Without my voice squealing
    Tried it down
    To a different key
    But this song just ain’t made for me!

    All the highs in the song were just fine
    But the lows were meant for a bassline
    My range isn’t enough
    Range isn’t enough
    Musical songs can’t happen bye bye
    Romance won’t ever happen cuz my
    Range isn’t enough
    Range isn’t enough

    For me
    Isn’t, isn’t
    Isn’t, isn’t
    Isn’t, for me
    For me
    Isn’t enough
    Isn’t enough
    Isn’t enough
    For me
    For me
    For me

    This one is not really going to make sense to anyone because it’s about a specific D&D campaign and characters (one of whom is a human cleric and the other a mouse person who is unfortunately…undead). But it’s the only parody I’ve written recently, so here it is.

    Man or Mousefolk (parody of Man or Muppet from The Muppets)

    Oxalo:
    As we plan to jailbreak Aaron
    I wonder how we came to Mirren-
    Dell and ended up so darin’
    To overthrow
    I don’t know

    Am I a man or am I a mousefolk
    If I’m a mousefolk I’m a very manly mousefolk
    Am I a mousefolk or am I a man
    If I’m a man that makes me a mousefolk of a man

    Petros:
    I look down at the stones
    Former friend with undead bones
    I wish I was back home
    But Vinny’s kingdom is torn

    Am I a man or am I a mousefolk
    If I’m a mousefolk I’m a very manly mousefolk
    Am I a mousefolk or am I a man
    If I’m a man that makes me a mousefolk of a man

    Both:
    Here I go again
    I’m always trying to do what’s right
    I won’t go down without a fight
    Now I understand who I am

    Petros:
    I’m a man

    Oxalo:
    I’m a mousefolk

    Petros:
    I’m a mousefolk of a man

    Oxalo:
    I’m a very manly mousefolk

    Petros:
    A mousefolk of a man

    Both:
    That’s what I am
