Another of the silly parody songs from the role-play, in the same vein as "Gee, Mr. Burger" and written around spring of 2012, I think. This one parodies The Battle of New Orleans. And, as I said on the post for the earlier song, I don't think the Karnage character is really nuts; I think he's so outrageous he's in a special class all his own. ;) But naturally he comes across as absolutely bonkers to most people.

Okay, here's that silly Gee, Officer Krupke parody I wrote. I'm very proud of these silly lyrics; I thought a long time about how to keep the flavor of the original song while adapting it to what I wanted. I kept a scant few of the original lyrics when they fit the situation.

I should explain first: the conceited nut the fuss is all about is an original character of mine. He started out as me just role-playing Don Karnage from Disney's Talespin, but he ended up so different years later that I decided he was no longer that character but someone else altogether. And he became my own character. He's still called Karnage, but if I ever do anything nationally with him, of course he'd be called something else. I have another name all in readiness, just in case. And this Karnage is an anthropomorphic Alaskan Malamute instead of a ... whatever Don Karnage is. (I insist he's a fox, but the comic said he's a wolf.)

I find conceited behavior repulsive when taken seriously, but as a gag it's one of the things I find funnier than just about anything else. I kept pushing the limits with this guy in my role-plays with Mom. He's just about as outrageous as you could get. When something goes wrong, like losing a piece of fur, he goes into these states where he just screams "Me, me, me" until the problem is solved. He joined the Army and was under the command of General Stilton from Disney's The Cat From Outer Space. And Corporal Klinger from M*A*S*H became his best friend. (The time period for the role-play is the present day, and we liberally throw in characters from all eras, although in the role-play they haven't time-traveled or anything like that; they just live in the present day and that's the way it's always been.) I don't think Karnage is still in the Army, though. He met Hamilton Burger when he barged into court one day, took the witness stand, and said in all sincerity, "I solemnly swear that I'm glorious." He was promptly charged with contempt of court and kept on racking up the charges when he wouldn't shut up. Hamilton prosecuted and this song came out of the silliness.

EDIT: I've thought for a long time that I should add spoken dialogue between each verse, just like the real song has. I've added some in.
