Patterico wrote to point out a wonderful song parody on the photo follies from Lebanon on JunkYard Blog. It’s set to the tune of the Kinks’ “Lola,” a special bonus for those, llke me, who view “Lola” as one of the high points in the history of popular music. Here is a sample:
Oh Reuters, Reuters I can’t understand
Why you keep on showing us the Green-Helmet Man
Taking bodies in and out of his mortuary van
While your cameras roll-ah
Doin’ it for Hezbollah
And how many times have we seen the same scene
Where the same old woman—you know the one I mean
Pretends her home is now a hole-a.
Acts like she can’t be console-a.
And it comes complete with links!
