Funny Stuff Healing with Humor Parody

We’ll Have Sequestration for Christmas this Year


SEQUESTRATION? It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like……Congress! (a Holiday Parody by Ken Rynne)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress / Ev’rywhere you go.
Take a look at the budget tiff / approaching the fiscal cliff /
With revenue & tax cuts all aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress /Domestic cuts in store
But the prettiest sight to see /is the tax cut that will be /
On your own front door.

A pair of hop-along boots /& a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Generals and friends /
Dolls that won’t talk but will go for a walk /
Is the hope of Petraes’ men /
And Grover Norquist pledges not to start that pledge again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress / Ev’rywhere you go; /
The White House has got a tree / The Capitol now has three /
for Democrats Republicans, and Tea (party)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Congress/ a deal will soon be near
But the thing that will make us sing / is the silliness they’ll bring /
as they do each year!

But the thing that will make us sing / is the silliness they’ll bring /
as they do each year!

Merry Congress & Happy Sequestration Everyone from Planet Washington!

Government Divided, Dysfunctional, BUT Musical

(Washington, DC) President Obama recently expressed frustration at the lack of a deficit reduction agreement to raise the Federal debt ceiling. People voted for divided government, not a ‘dysfunctional’ one, he vented. Five years ago Sen. Susan Collins (R- ME), an obvious Cole Porter fan, summarized FEMA’s performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in three words: “it’s discredited, it’s demoralized, it’s dysfunctional.” We set her report to music then but now we think Collins was too narrow in her indictment.

We, uh, recycle our song now in light of the President’s comment.

It’s Dysfunctional © 2011 Ken Rynne Parody of It’s De-Lovely By Cole Porter

I feel the sudden urge to sing/ About this FEDERAL DEBT LIMIT thing, So control your desire to curse/ While I satirize a verse. This THREE RING CIRCUS seems to me/ Not worthy of Cole Porter’s melody, So to spare you all the pain,/ I’ll skip the darn thing and sing the refrain.

Mi, mi, mi, mi, Re, re, re, re,/ Do, sol, T – PAR- T,  S.O.S.

The bills are due, the coffers cleared, /But still NO DEAL comes from CONGRESS dear, “it’s discredited, it’s demoralized, it’s dysfunctional.”

I understand the reason why/ You’re BUYING GOLD BARS now, so am I, “it’s discredited, it’s demoralized, it’s dysfunctional.”

*You can tell at a glance/ Time’s done /for TEXTING/YOUR UNDERPANTS, You can hear John Q /Pu-blic/ murmuring low,/ “These guys gotta go!”

So please VETO, Obama dear,/ When unfunded tax cuts [or spending] come, let us hear: It’s delinquent, It’s defective, / It’s department-ized, It’s dehumanized, it’s discredited, it’s demoralized, it’s dysfunctional.

Time marches on and soon it’s plain /Some in Congress have no heart, and sit on their brain. It’s discredited, it’s demoralized, it’s dysfunctional.

You can tell at a glance/ Time’s done /for TEXTING/YOUR UNDERPANTS,  You can hear John Q /Pu-blic/ murmuring low,/ “These guys gotta go!”

So please VETO, Obama dear,/ When unfunded spending [or tax cuts] comes, let us hear: It’s delinquent, It’s defective, / It’s department-ized, It’s dehumanized, it’s discredited, it’s demoralized, it’s dysfunctional.
