I Feel A Great Disturbance In The Force

As if this great big whale suddenly cried out as if in gastric distress

    I’m just thankful they weren’t wearing bathing suits in that photo.

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    Someone would have called Greenpeace, Jeff.

    When I properly attain power as Ultimate Emperor of Earth, Lord of All I Survey and Master of the Universe As Long As It Doesn’t Take Too Long To Get There, I’m going to announce an edict that anyone singing this song gets put up against a wall and shot.
    Or forced to have sex with Ted Kennedy.
    Whichever is more painful.

    Gonna save a TON of money on bullets!

  4. Shame Teddy wasn’t bodypainted ~ he could have been the world.

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    And he certainly has a built-in wind farm.

    I think Teddy was singing his own lyrics to the song:
    We rule the world
    It’s for the children
    You only live to keep us in office
    So start giving
    It’s a vote we’re taking
    We ought to run your lives
    You’d only waste them anyway
    So vote for me

    And it all came together when Nancy Pelosi sang the Cyndi Lauper parts!
    We rule the world
    It’s for the children
    Your tax rates are way too low
    You greedy bastards
    There’s a choice you’re making
    You’d better get it right
    It’s better running things our way
    So vote for me!

    Greenpeace is mad at Jabba for opposing wind farms, Mr. Bingley. They might chain themselves to his liquor cabinet in protest.

    Oof. Pass the barf bags. That “music is the great uniter” line pushed my dinner over the edge.
