Humour Me


nonamedufus' submission to Humor Bloggers Dot Com's "Humorists Are Artists"


I Want You To Spell Me
(to the tune of I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick)

I want you to spell me.
I need you to “u” me.
I'd love you to humour me.
I'm beggin you to spell me.

I want you to spell me.
I need you to “u” me. I'd love you to humour me.
I'll get out the Oxford Dictionary, loan you my glasses.
I'll get home early from work if you spell humour for me.


Didn't i, didn't i, didn't I see you spell?
Oh, didn't i, didn't i, didn't I see you spell?
Feelin all alone without a friend, you know you felt like hell.
Oh, didn't i, didn't i, didn't I see you spell?

I want you to spell me.
I need you to “u” me.
I'd love you to humour me.
I'm beggin you to spell me.
I'll never, ever say “eh”, or eat any more poutine.
I'll get you a Canada Dry if you spell humour correctly

Quirky: But Dr. Pepper's Ahmuricann. Will you settle for an A&W root beer, neighbo"u"r?

Hell, this is better than the original song! I can at least relate to this one... Sweeeet!
VE said…
Ha! Perfect. I can't resist a good song parody (I have an entire section for them on my blog). Of course, the real question now is: Did you spell check this?
CH!CA said…
Pure artistry right there! :)

Don & Chica: Thanks guys

VE: Yep, and everytime it came up without the "u".

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
