Gilligan’s Island–Ready for Offshore Drilling?

To the tune of the theme from Gilligan’s Island:

Just sit right back, and you’ll hear a tale,
Worse than a bad acid trip!
That started with an asshole,
And a guy with a crooked lip.

The mate was a stupid, drooling man,
As dumb as a hockey puck,
The citizens were not prepared,
For an 8-year clusterfu¢k.

An 8-year clusterfu¢k. [sound of thunder: crack!]

The Sneerer started getting rough,
His callousness exposed.
He gave to the rich–but the middle class?
Their houses were foreclosed.

Their houses were foreclosed.

We’ve run aground because of their,
Unchartered reckless course,
From Dub-y-a, the Sneerer, too,
The Millionaire and her leech,
Cond-o-leezza, the Turdblossom and Sarah, too,
Now oil soaks the beach!

So this is the tale of our poor country,
We’ve suffered a long, long time
We’ll have to try to clean things up,
It’s an uphill climb.

The Chimpster and the Sneerer too,
They did their very best,
To make their rich friends comfortable,
And just screw all the rest.

Eight houses! Jewels! And motor cars!
And tons and tons of dough,
If John McCain’s elected, expect the status quo.

So join us in November, please,
And help us to espouse,
The values that we should stand for,
With a Dem in the White House!

Tip of the hat to Greyhawk. He is having a contest over at Big Orange, and this was my entry.

  1. Got a Grip

    LOL! Oh my God, nons, that is hillarious. And perfect. Hahaha!

  2. thanks, gotta! :D
    i sort of rushed through the song, so i hope it is okay. it was fun. i think the contest is still open if you want to get out your photoshop paintbrush, gotta! :wink:

  3. nightowl724

    Absolutely, positively HYSTERICAL!!!!! You rock!

    When and where do I vote?

  4. thanks, nightowl! :)
    greyhawk is supposed to put a diary up with the entries, but, so far, i don’t know if there were any other entries.

  5. nightowl724

    I guess you win, then!

  6. i won, because i didn’t have to worry about what to post here tonight! :lol:

  7. Got a Grip

    In the second poster with the full crew, Cindy Lou is looking particularly over-botoxed. Her eyebrows appear to be collapsing into her eyelashes. She should really back off of that stuff. Seriously. And stay out of the sun. Her skin looks like rich Corinthian leather (as Ricardo Montoban used to say).

    Very funny Nonnie. You nailed the characters, Condi as Ginger, Sarah as Mary Ann, KKKarl as The Professor, Dick as Skipper, the always hapless Gilligan. But the capper is Cindy Lou as Thurston and CU as Lovie. The shipwrecked Straight Talk Express is great too.

  9. nightowl724

    nonnie has shown just who wears the pants in the (Howell) McCain family!

  10. gotta,
    i don’t know what cindy lou howell will do with no botox on the island. :o let’s hope gilligan can catch a wild pig so marysarah can butcher it and preserve it incorrectly, thereby resulting in botulism that the professor can turn into botox.

  11. thanks jeb! :D
    i thought making cindy lou thurston would be funnier than making her into lovie. they never said on gilligan’s island (that i can recall) whether lovie was rich independent of thurston, and i wanted to be accurate. :wink:
    i wracked my brain trying to figure out what to replace the carving in the corner with. i had a little uncle sam with his middle finger up, but it looked like uncle sam was directing that at the audience, not the case, so i ditched that. then i was going to have pickles bush, because when she gets that joker-looking expression, she looks very much like the face in the original. finally, it occurred to me that the straight talk express should be represented to represent what i hope the result of the election will be.

  12. nightowl,
    as much as i suspect cindy lou is a psychologically-abused wife, i think she has capt u by his shriveled little balls. i suspect she has a lot of dirt piled up against him, and she can take away his credit cards and atm card whenever she wants. daddy made sure she got that sweet little pre-nup.

  13. jlms qkw - jenn

    zomg, nonnie! i vote for you too!

    cindy’s hair this week – i think they put in layers and softened it with a bit of curl, to counter-act the harshness (post-botox) in the actual facial structure.

    i’ve got to stop obsessing about her hair anyway. it’s not like it’s real or anything.

  14. jenn,
    i thought cindy lou looked washed out and just yucky. when she curls her hair, she looks like she is trying to look younger, but she just looks ridiculous. they can put in as many layers as they want, but when you follow it with an entire can of aqua-net, it doesn’t move, and it makes her look even more plastic than usual.

  15. nightowl724

    The way that stiff dress was leading Cindy Lou around, how many crinoline slips do you suppose she was wearing underneath? Or, maybe the dress was just injected with Botox!

  16. i think botox would have made the dress go limp, nightowl. i suspect the skirt was filled with collagen.

  17. nightowl724

    Ahhh, I see…

  18. Got a Grip

    I don’t think it was collagen, nons. I think it was fat injections taken directly from Rush Limbaugh’s fat head. Or possibly his boil-infested a$$. Or both.

  19. Chimpagain? Bwahahahaha!

    Too bad we were all so blinded by his st00p1d to have come up with that one back in 2001.

  20. gotta,
    i don’t think limpballs and the underpantses get along very well. perhaps the dress was shored up with empty beer cans.

  21. neon vincent,
    i had to figure out some word i could make using the lettering that was on the dvd cover. i came up with chimpagain, because that’s what capt underpants would be, and i figured cindy lou bought the island for him, just like she bought him houses in congressional districts so he could legally run for the seats.

  22. dcAp,
    can you say SYNDICATION!!!!!!?
