DUmmie FUnnies 11-09-11 ("Will Pitt's 40th Birthday today...")
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | November 9, 2011 | DUmmie Raven and Charles Henrickson

Posted on 11/09/2011 4:09:59 PM PST by Charles Henrickson

OK, I promise: After today, I will take a moratorium on Will Pitt DUFUs for a while. But today IS the man's 40th birthday, after all, and he IS the Pied Piper of DUmmieland, and he has been the #1 star of the DUmmie FUnnies over these past 7+ years. So a special birthday tribute today to William Rivers Pitt.

Really, though, it's just an excuse to post a song I came up with since yesterday. Yesterday we DUFUed Will's THREAD, "Woke up this morning just covered in Fail," in which the Pittster bemoaned not some setback in the Occupy movement--no, OccupiedWillPitt hasn't even been out to one of the Occupy protests yet--but rather he bemoaned the fact that his sports teams lost over the weekend. That's right, Hiding Hypocrite Pitt has been home watching sports on TV rather than being out on the front lines with his courageous sisters and brothers.

So in that spirit, and in honor of the birthday boy, I have written this tribute to Wee Willie. Click the music link and sing along!

(WHEN I WOKE UP THIS MORNING) I WAS ON MY MIND, by Wee Willie
Tune: "(When I Woke Up This Morning) You Were on My Mind", by We Five

When I woke up on Monday
I was full of Fail
And I was full of Fail
My teams burned me, whoa, whoa
Tossed and turned me, whoa, whoa
Hear me weep and wail

So I went to Bukowski's
I got full of ale
Said, I got full of ale
I got plastered, whoa, whoa
Drunk, disastered, whoa, whoa
I got out a pail

But I woke up this morning
I was on my mind
Said, I was on mind
I turned forty, four-oh
Watch more sporty, go, go
I'll stay here reclined

Hey, I got a TV
Down in my room
Said, lay down in my room
Hey, I got cable, whoa, whoa
TV table, whoa, whoa
I'm gonna watch away my gloom

When I woke up this morning
I was on my mind
And marching's such a grind
Hey, it's too chilly, whoa, whoa
I'm Wee Willie, whoa, whoa
I'll stay here reclined

Now today, on Wee Willie's birthday itself, Mother Pitt, aka DUmmie Raven, has posted this congratulatory THREAD for Sonny Boy, "Will Pitt's 40th Birthday today..."

So let's drop in on the party, shall we, in Birthday Balloon Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, the wag tailoring the doggerel, Charles Henrickson, encouraging all of you DU moles to stop in and wish William the best, is in the [brackets]:

Will Pitt's 40th Birthday today...

[William Pitt the Younger is now William Pitt the Elder.]

How did this happen?????

[If you don't remember, Mother Pitt, I'm guessing it involved Will Pitt's dad.]

I guess I was a child bride.

[Raven laid an egg.]

Happy B'Day Will!

[The Day When Willie Pitt Finally Aged. Now we will see an older, wiser, more mature William Rivers Pitt, less of the over-imbibing trust-fund baby, and more of the Professorial Pipesmoker Pitt.]

HA! Awesome.

[Or not. William thanks Mumsy for giving him this thread.]

How does a young lass like you have a 40-year-old son?

[Lass is more . . . than 60.]

Happy Birthday, Will! You're one of the best we've got!

[Amazingly, this is true! But this is like saying the Rams are one of the best football teams in St. Louis.]

H B, W P......and manny moe..

[O W S, A W O L, W P......and MIA..]

Where's the cake?

[Where's Willie? Not at the protest!]

It made me laugh, and I wrote it! That's usually my test for whether or not to post a parody. In fact, that's the main reason I looked for a thread on Pitt's birthday to DUFU, so I would have an excuse to post the song.

And thank YOU, Roscoe Karns, for all the excellent graphics, including MANY Pitt pix (like the one at the top of this DUFU and the one here of Pitt hanging out at Bukowski's).

I notice now that I left out the word "my" in line 3 of the third stanza. But I think everyone will naturally fill that in.

I always thought it would be nice to have an edit bottom here. Maybe with a 10 minute window or so to correct typos etc after you hit post.

More from yours truly, the wag tailoring the doggerel:

THE RAVEN (aka The Pitt and the Pablum)
by Edgar Allen Poem

Long ago in gray November--
Few are they that can remember--
When a young and lovely Raven,
In those distant days of yore,
Laid an egg and called it Willie,
For she knew he'd turn out silly.
Out he came, a newborn yapping,
Midnight Cowboy hat he wore,
Long he yammered, e'en while napping:
"Nail it to the White House door!"
Years ago, yea, ten times four,
Quoth the Raven, "A bore I bore!"

I did take a quick look at Poe’s “The Raven,” to get a feel for the rhyme scheme and the meter.

Since when did lumps of bread dough celebrate birthdays?

Charles, you are getting perilously close to Chris Wallace-on-Mitt Romney Mancrush territory here. That moritorium couldn`t come fast enough.

Did he get a ticket to an OWS protest for a birthday present? Visiting such a protest would be a novelty for him.

I'm not even going to ask what kind of cake Will gets for his birthday.

“I always thought it would be nice to have an edit bottom here. Maybe with a 10 minute window or so to correct typos etc after you hit post.”


I think that life should have the same thing. You hit the “do over” button and rewind your life 10 minutes.

To make it interesting you could have a limit - 10 do overs. Imagine the angst in deciding whether to push that button.
