Green Thumb’s Column: A Rebuttal to Zarion’s Rebuttal to My Previous Column

This. Means. WAR!!!!



Earlier this week, the milestone tenth anniversary of 9/11 was “celebrated.” I remember where I was on that horrible day. Syrika wasn’t born yet, so her room was a guest room. I saw Momicon sitting on the bed and crying. Where were you on that dreadful occasion? Saying goodbye to your kids as they went to school? Kissing your spouse as you went off to work? Calling a friend to see what’s new? No matter what we were doing, let’s all have a moment of silence for everyone killed in the tragic events of September 11th, 20o1. Write in with comments on your experiences, if you wish to. Now, I shall close with a song.
The Star Spangled Banner

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

A Rebuttal to Green Thumb’s Newest Post

Hi, everyone. I’m Zarion, and we here at Miscellaneous Soup, Inc. were really insulted by Green Thumb’s (admittedly good) song parody. You have to admit, it was a good idea to make fun of iCarly”s theme song. Well, he partially stole our idea  for a future blog post, Tigerboy. He did? I wasn’t here, yesterday. The Superclub needed me for a mission.  Cuddles wanted to teleport him into a lava pit, but I said that we didn’t want any more lawsuits. You’re no fun. Anyway, I commissioned a good friend of mine (Tigerboy and I) to create a song parody insulting his column. Without further ado, “Brand New Misery!” Wait. What? The details. Oh, right, thanks. This is a parody of my favorite Phineas and Ferb song, “Brand New Reality.” Specifically, my favorite Phineas and Ferb song from Phineas and Ferb: The Movie: Across the Second Dimension in Fabulous 2D. Now, the original song lyrics

If there’s no hospitality
Just get out of town
You can be light on formality and say
I guess I’ll see you around
You’ve got no obligations
Nothin’ holding you down
Find a new situation and say
I guess I’ll see you around

You’ve got no time to waste
On sentimentality
Get out and find yourself
A brand new reality
Get out and find yourself
A brand new reality
A particle duality
A new dimensionality yeah (yeah !)

I guess I’ll see you around

Well sometimes it’s appropriate
to stop for a snack
If you do then I hope you get back
I guess I’ll see you around
Hopping clockwise through dimensions
Is a dangerous thing
But it seems to help a lot if we sing
And we can sing about

A brand new reality
A brand new reality
A brand new reality
I guess I’ll see you around
A brand new reality
A brand new reality
(Brand Times 10)
I guess I’ll see you around

Bravo! Now, the parody.

There’s no visible quality

So just stop making columns

You can do this quickly and say

-Uhhhhhhhhh…………………………………………………………………….NEW IDEA!!! Quick, Tigerboy! Sing the tune as a hint to our readers! One catchy tune coming up, Zarion! Dooby-dooby-dooby-dooby-dooby-doo-bah, Ay-gent P! Just imagine the tune during the song, peoples. (It’s a word.)

Backing scat: Blah-blah-blah-hah

Cuddles: He’s Green Thumb!

Zarion: He’s a semi-snobbish column making monkey of action!

Backing Scat: Blahhy-blahhy-blah-blah

Zarion: He’s a cowardly little nuisance, who will ALWAYS flinch from a fray-ee-ay-ee-ay! He’s got more than just bad taste,

Cuddles: Wah-ah-ah

Zarion: He’s got a huge electric bill!

Cuddles: Ah-ah

Zarion: And all my friends scream in horror when they hear him say-

Pause the song! Huh? OKay…. Wait for it… I’VE COMPLETED ANOTHER COLUMN-TASTIC MASTERPIECE! AAAAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!! There! The saying, and the screams! (Ooh, good comic-book title.) 

Zarion: He’s Green Thumb, Green Thumb the Annoying!

Zarion out.
