Things That Make Me Snarf - Exorcists

This week's Thing That Makes Me Snarf is courtesy of Whose Line Is It Anyway? One of the best shows ever on television if you ask me, which you didn't because you were shirking your duties. I mean, really, do you expect me to keep up both sides of the conversation?

Fair warning that this clip starts out slow, but stick with it. It gets progressively snarfier.



I happen to know an exorcist or two, and I'm convinced that I've figured out the way to make my millions: Inspired by this video, I shall form a musical group. Know how that one guy is the guru of the boy bands? I shall be the guru of the exorcist bands. We could start the exorcist rap group: Exorcists Fo' Shizzle. The exorcist metal band: Motley Exorcist Riot. The exorcist 50's throwback band: Johnny and the Exorcists. The exorcist alternative rock group: Exorcist 11.

I know there are people out there who need to be exposed to the Latin version of "Pour Some Holy Water On Me," sung to the tune of "Pour Some Sugar On Me." Because really, that song is like mono. Once you're exposed to it, you can't get rid of it. When I was managing the research lab, I got that song stuck in my head for about four weeks and couldn't dislodge it. I'd be checking in brains (seriously. not kidding.) while singing that song, which is kind of twisted now that I think about it.

But then again, I kinda like twisted. Except that Dee Snyder gives me the creeps.

Instead of "My Boyfriend's Back", you could do "The Exorcist's Back". This is gonna be a fun day,I can hear it in my head already.

Jamie Eyberg said...

how about 'Rosary beads. . .on my pillow, make me happy.' It sounded pretty good in my head to the tune of 'sunshine...on my shoulder'

Okay, that was really, really bad. (hangs head in shame and hits it with baseball bat, again.)

2 things I love...Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Def Lepard's best song. Can't go wrong. I've never seen taht Whose Line skit, but it is hilarious. Wayne Brady is amazing on any skits that involve singing. And Ryan Stiles is always funny.

Carrie Harris said...

Hanna: And now it's stuck in my head too. :)

Jamie: Actually, that's pretty funny. I don't have to hit myself with a baseball bat for saying that, do I?

Rob: Yeah, I'm embarrassed to say how fond I am of that song. Because really, if you consider it rationally, the song sucks. But I still love it.

And Ryan Stiles is a comedy god. No question about that.

You could start The Exorcists too, whose neo-punk anthem "Exorcism in the UK" would be their only hit, but the only hit they'd ever need. It'd start a whole movement!

Brenda said...

That was soo funny....I use to watch that show all the time, but I can never find it anymore...

Thanks for the laugh...I needed it...

Carrie Harris said...

KC: Hmmm... that story sounds strangely familiar... ;)

Brenda: I have a whole load of videotaped episodes. Wanna come over? :)

SPEAKING of Dee Snider & snarfalious things...

And yes!! Ryan Stiles!! So awesome.

Stephanie Perkins said...

Oh drat. The full linkage didn't show up. The name of The Onion article is "Members of Twisted Sister Now Willing to Take It."

HA HA HA!!

Songs stuck in my head: "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen.

ARGH!

Carrie Harris said...

Stephanie: I've got that song stuck in my head now. It's a good thing no one can see me headbanging at the computer like a complete loser. :)

Glamis: I'd like to hear the exorcist version of that song. Hah!

Blogger wouldn't let me comment before. Waaaah. Having a song stuck in your head is like being possessed. Maybe you're on to something...
Thanks for the funny clip!

Kelly said...

Blogger was possessed yesterday!
You could also play the INXS song, "Devil Inside" during the exorcism!

Rena said...

Thanks for posting that link, Carrie. I love "Who's Line Is It Anyway?" and I don't think I've ever seen that one. Funny as hell.

TerriRainer said...

I LOVE THAT SHOW!

As for Dee Snyder...did you ever see the movie he starred in...about that deranged, multi-pierced and tattooed sadistic psychopath?

OMG IT WAS BAD...bad as in, CREEPY and TWISTED....way more twisted than the Sisters ever were!

:) Terri

I have lots of bad lyrics to normal songs too, I'm just not willing to get the songs stuck in my head again to tell you what they are. However, next time I'm singing them, I'll be sure to let you know.

"I got that song stuck in my head for about four weeks and couldn't dislodge it. I'd be checking in brains (seriously. not kidding.) while singing that song, which is kind of twisted now that I think about it."

If I didn't know what you were talking about ... but I do, and I still had the thought that you were checking inside of brains to either find the source of the song, or find some unsuspecting brain to unload it into.

My brain gets stuck on repeat for songs like that too, but I don't have any brains to discuss it with or get to sing along with me.

Just pretend that my comments have nothing to do with what you were really doing, because I moved past that to odd-land right away.

Carrie Harris said...

adrienne: That's a good point! Now why didn't I think of that?

Kelly: Mmmm. Love INXS. I spent hours trying to learn all the words to Mediate way back when. Because I was a dork. Ahem. AM a dork.

rena: I'm an absolute vault of Whose Line factoids. ;) I'll definitely do another one at some point, because it's just too funny.

terri: No, I didn't see that movie. Although it sounds like one that would be good for MST3King. Slayer could be the voice of Dee Snyder. ;)

sruble: Yeah, I was a little deliberately vague there. But you can ask bringerofbrains. He quite literally brought me the brains. :)

Don't have a channel that shows that show but now I am definitly tempted to go on You tube and find sme. Thanks for the laugh!
