Goddamit! this is ME

 

Il Morto Qui Parla

except I am British not American and I do eat meat. I must add that when I post these lyrics I am laughing at myself - even I am not that angsty!

quote:

I never thought about the universe, it made me feel small
Never thought about the problems of this planet at all
Global warming, radio-active sites
Imperialistic wrongs and animal rights! no!

Why think of all the bad things when life is so good?
Why help with an am when theres always a could?
Let the whales worry about the poisons in the sea
Outside of california, its foreign policy

I dont want changes, I have no reactions
Your dilemmas are my distractions

Thats no way to go, franco un-american
No way to go, franco un-american
No way to go, franco un-american
No way to go, franco, franco un-american

I never looked around, never second-guessed
Then I read some howard zinn now Im always depressed
And now I cant sleep from years of apathy
All because I read a little noam chomsky

Im eating vegetation, cause of fast food nation
Im wearing a couple of shoes cause of globalization
Im watching michael moore expose the awful truth
Im listening to public enemy and reagan youth

I see no world peace cause of zealous armed forces
I eat no breath-mints cause their from de-hoofed horses
Now I cant believe; what an absolute failure
The presidents laughing cause we voted for nader

Thats no way to go, franco un-american
No way to go, franco un-american
No way to go, franco un-american
Where can we go, franco un-american

I want to move north and be a canadian
Or hang down low with the nice australians
I dont want to be another i-dont-care-ican
What are we gonna do franco, franco un-american

Not bad. Although, for the record, it must be stated that the ground, greyish-black substance found in cans of Franco-American products cannot be said with absolute certainty to be meat. Or meat as it is known on Earth, in any case.

I once ordered the "meat lovers" pizza at a chain pizza store, and among the recognizable meats (bacon, pepperoni, sausage(okay that one's debateable), ground beef) was one called "beef topping". Also greyish in colour, and not looking all that edible. The server could not tell me what it was, beyond "it's a topping, and it's...beef". I asked no more questions, ate my heart-attack-on-a-plate and ordered "meat lovers" pizzas no more.

I suppose you could say I deserved that, and you'd be right.

...and just then, Charlton Heston burst in, sobbing and out-of-breath, screaming "Soylent Beef Topping is people...it's people...!"

Oh, and Ken? Belated kudos for delving into the babble archives to bring us a thread that you promptly derail into nonsense over "meat and meat by-products".

Timeless.

Glad to help. And the weird thing is, this was one of the more CURRENT thread in the Youth Issues forum.

You just can't do better than meat by-products for comedic inspiration.
