Now for something completely different ... or is it?

Lyrics set to a catchy tune with crazy wild graphic video, by the Australia Metro PSA.

Me, too (I'm thinking this is what children are for) -- several days ago, and I cannot get it out of my head!

I was reminded of Feist 1234.

I heard Glenn Beck mention this and he’s right...that “dumb” song sticks in your head.

You’re perfectly safe, the song specifically said “rattlesnake.”

The singer sounds almost like an Australian version of Edie Brickell. Catchy.

It’s hard to believe that Bob used to be that small.

He was 6’ and 10 pounds when I got him.
He’s 7’+ now and about 17 pounds.

I think I fed him too good.

He’s on a diet now and not happy about that at all.

Tonight would have been his ‘weekly meal’ but he’s on a new feeding schedule, so he just picked up his water bowl with his tail and dumped it all over his condo.

So, he’s now glaring at me from his upper deck every time I walk by because his bedroom floor is wet.

[like he didn’t see that coming]

Sometimes, late at night, I can hear the plaintive wail of a tiny harmonica and the squeaky strains of “Nobody know de trouble Ah’s seed, nobody know but me.....”

It’s pitiful, really.

[his recent request for a tin cup was denied]

*Snort* [giggles] Just tell him that he would need a hand transplant to use the tin cup, and there are no snake hands available right now. (you ain’t lyin’!)

It’s the illustrations that make this work — no holds barred!

I’m surprised no one has addressed the obvious need for additional verses :)
