A Twist of Citrus

Music: Sex With Ducks!

This blog was all inspired by watching a video of Paul Simon singing "Sound of Silence" for the 9-11 Memorial at Ground Zero. It reminded me how much I love Simon and Gurfunkel's "Scarborough Fair". From there, I was off to YouTube so I could listen to it. And from there I went to Wikipedia to read about the origins of the song.

Then I went on to read about Simon and Garfunkel's breakup at the height of their popularity. Further along in the article, a comedy duo named "Garfunkel and Oates" appeared, which gets its name from "two famous rock-and-roll second bananas". I went to their page, and from there I learned of their song "Sex With Ducks" which satirizes a quote made by (the totally whacked out old man who is one of the hosts of the 700 Club) Pat Robertson.

He said: "You got somebody, he's really weird, and his sexual orientation is that he likes to have sex with ducks. Is he protected under hate crime? Is he protected if he likes to have sex with little boys?"

Which isn't quite the same as what they say in the song, but I don't care because he has repeatedly compared gay marriage to pedophilia and bestiality, so it definitely falls under artistic license and paraphrasing.

Anyway, this is satire at its best. Hilarious and it totally drives the point all the way home.

Also, you've just had a brief glimpse into my crazy brain and how I learn all the crazy crap I know. I'm not sure whether to say "Wou're welcome," or "I'm sorry."
