Make them pay four months of earnings (oh, that’s a good one)
Have them look for lost receipts (ooh, I like it!)
They’ll have about as much fun
as their last colonoscopy
People everywhere will get ripped off…
the paper version of the Apple Watch

And we’ll dance all night, it’s the best code ever
Some folks pay a lot, others they pay never
And you’ll get tax breaks if you’re really clever
It’ll take so long, it’s the best code ever
They’ll be like “oh, oh no”
We’ll be like “yeah, yeah, yeah.”
We’ll be like “awww.”

You may have heard that all your info
on our systems can be hacked with ease
But rest assured if they don’t get them
they’ll be in the care of folks like these
Yes historians will all agree
among the greatest works in history

And we’ll dance all night, it’s the best code ever
Some folks pay a lot, others they pay never
and if you don’t comply you’ll go to jail, however
Why would you not file? It’s the best code ever
They’ll be like “Oh, oh no”
We’ll be like “yeah, yeah, yeah” “

We wish you happy holidays, whoever you may be
So merry Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, or heck all three

Santa Clause is Coming to Town
You better not judge, you better not hate
Better not bully or discriminate
Progressive Santa’s coming to town
He’s making a list of gluten free foods
He won’t take a peek at J-Law’s nudes
Progressive Santa’s coming to town
He’s 50 different races
And all for tax reform
He’ll protect all your children
Well, as long as they’ve been born

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
You’re a green one, Mr. Grinch
You’re lacking in finesse
That greenish epidermis determines your success
Mr. Grinch
Racist Whos constrain you to the issues they continue to suppress
You’re an outlier, Mr. Grinch
You give the Whos a fright
They say your heart is 3/5ths normal,
You’re either wrong or white
Mr. Grinch
Don’t walk the streets of Whoville you might fight a cop the Whos will not indict

White Christmas
I’m dreaming of a racially ambiguous holiday

Away In A Manger
Away in a manger with Jesus and crew
His schmeckle got cut cause hey Christ was a Jew

O Holy Night
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night Jesus did something holy
Joseph watched golf, his leather chair reclining
As Mary birthed a child, I think a donkey was involved
Three wise men came, with GPS they found him
Christ lied in a barn, as his omniscient baby-daddy looked down
Jesus crawled on his knees
His mom shared it on snapchat
O bright device!
O night, when Christ celebrated Christmas “













Arkansas Badonkadonk



    Earlier this month we highlighted a video that was produced by the Stand With Hillary Super PAC to support the “inevitable” campaign , it is her turn after all , of Ms Hillary Clinton for president . There was much to do on both sides of the aisle about the video , most of which commented on the fact that said video was unintended parody . This current video , by the esteemed Remy is real , intentional parody . Brought to you , as always , by ReasonTV we hope you enjoy it as much as we did .

   Below are the lyrics so you can follow along …

Just like the last time around
Republicans are gonna frown
Mitt Romney and Ben Carson now?
Like Twitter stock you’re going down

You’d that you were riding in
Billy Joel’s car I swear
because you’re gonna see
shattered glass everywhere

I’m talking Arkansas Badonkadonk..
Perfect voting record make you wanna vote along
Gonna bring along ol’ Bill Clinton
and ooh-wee, shut my mouth, slap your grandma

You think she’s gonna lose
in the early primaries?
You’d sooner see Al Sharpton
promptly filing quarterlies

Somehow I’m a crusader
Can label you a hater
While I say “nominate
anybody with a baby-maker” “














Don’t Tell ‘Em (Obamacare Version)




Published on Nov 17, 2014

” As Jonathan Gruber could tell you, the only way to sell “stupid” American voters on Obamacare was to keep us confused about what the law actually does.

Remy recreates the White House’s strategy meeting in this parody of the Jeremih hit, “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

Folks would be aghast if
this law would be passed but
thankfully they are so dumb

Sure our team can’t build a
website in three years but
THEY’RE the ones who are so dumb

So, what’s the strategy?

Don’t tell em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even
Don’t tell em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even, you ain’t even gotta tell ’em

It’ll bring prices down with it
Your healthcare plan will stick around with it
Boy, you know I’m from Chicago
Maybe they get a clown with it…

Don’t let me catch you snoring
Making government bigger is never boring
Our CBO strategy’s named “Bill Cosby”
we’re looking for an improper scoring

When folks ask what’s in you lie through the tooth
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
Our ideas are so good we can’t tell the truth
That’s right right right right right

But won’t people read it in three years or so?
My, my, my, my, my, my
Who’d look inside something that many years old? “

War On Free Speech: Starkville, Mississippi Aldermen Want Twitter Parodist Arrested




” The War on Free Speech marches into Starkville, Mississippi, where police are seeking the master criminals who lampooned Starkville Aldermen David Little and Ben Carver using the Twitter accounts @DavidLittleBOA and @BenCarverPray.

The Daily Dolt notes:

  The two aldermen came under fire recently after instigating the removal of Starkville’s highly popular Chief Administration Officer Lynn Spruill without providing any reason for the coup other than Carver’s comment that he “prayed” about it and God told him to kick her to the curb (hence the parody handle @BenCarverPrays).”

Isn’t it Ironic: Government Surveillance Version (with Remy)



Published on Mar 20, 2014

” Remy updates the Alanis Morissette hit for a certain senior senator from California.

Approximately 2 minutes.

  Written by Remy. Video and animation by Meredith Bragg. Music performed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Ben Karlstrom.

A Senator lady
Got the news one day
The country’s being spied on
by the NSA

So she went out defending
on each TV set
but when she found out she’d been snooped on
she got all upset

And isn’t it ironic?
I mean, don’t you think?

It’s like you’re at Chris Brown’s
and there’s punch in the fridge
or if The Bachelor
passed a geography quiz

Learning Ted Kennedy
happened to be good at bridge.
And who would have thought?
It figures.

Senator, this may surprise you
and the irony bites
but Congresspeople ain’t the only ones
with 4th Amendment rights

It’s like a minimalist
who does their laundry
with All
or if Woody Allen liked to watch
Kids in the Hall

it’s like FDR
got locked in a Honda Accord
a cheap healthcare plan
that you just can’t afford

If Oscar Pistorius
really hated The Doors
and who would have thought?
It figures.

I heard the government
is sneaking up on you.
Life has a funny, funny way
of calling you out
calling you out.”










We Usually Don’t Mock Terrorism; But When We Do, We Make A Darn Good Point About Freedom




” This link backs up the statistics presented in this video.

  Terrorism is indeed a horrible thing, and we as a country have a lot of work to do to address the root causes of it. But we believe that sometimes, it takes humor to put things in perspective. How many of our civil liberties are we willing to give up in the name of security?”



   This satirical video dovetails nicely with a graphic that we ran a week or so ago from Meg McClain and the Young Americans For Freedom  , reprised for the reader’s edification below …

Swedish Marines’ Parody Of ‘Greased Lightning’ Goes Viral



” A bunch of Swedish marines based in Afghanistan decided to make a parody video of the famous “Greased Lightning” song from the 1978 movie “Grease.” They never expected it to go viral but, of course, it did.

  Thanks to a contributor on Reddit, shortly after the video was uploaded to YouTube over the weekend, it went viral. By Sunday, the video had received over half a million hits and was mentioned in the media worldwide.

  Boris Zelada directed the video, which shows around a dozen Swedish marines, lip syncing and dancing to the classic song. The only difference was, instead of John Travolta and a whole load of snazzy cars, the video offers army vehicles and guys in camo gear. “

This Brilliant Toy Commercial Parody of Government ‘Kronies’ Skewers Washington Politics




Published on Jan 22, 2014

” Get Konnected at http://www.thekronies.com

  The Kronies are in action…Mandating, Tarrify-ing, Inflating, and Boondoggling their way to profits powered by their special konnection to the G-Force. Watch Big-G and his team stomp out competition! “



Here’s Big-G , the ultimate Konnection …


Published on Jan 22, 2014

” Get Konnected at http://www.thekronies.com

  Big G is the leader of The Kronies. He towers over the other Kronies—heck, he towers over everybody. His bulging muscles are only a fraction of his power. His half-blue, half-red suit symbolizes the two-party system. He has a mirror for a face (because Big G is “us”). How can so much power be concentrated in one hero? Ask the Kronies. Together, they make an unstoppable team.

  Big G’s origins are something of a mystery. He is thought to have emerged long, long ago — at a point when human beings started thinking of clan kings as having godlike powers. Some say this powerful entity manifests itself in many different civilizations, at many different places and times. Today he has found his greatest expression here in America — as Big G.

  Some think Big G is all powerful. But like all heroes, Big G has a weakness. When the people falter in their belief in the Greater Good, his power starts to wane. Thus, he sometimes has to demonstrate his terrific might, to bring about order, and to align the people towards the Greater Good. A few times in the past, he’s lost grip on the G-force. When that happens he goes underground only to reemerge later — bigger, stronger and more powerful than before.
