Eggs and Endorphins

A seasonal parody

12/20/07 08:35 am - A seasonal parody

This is a little rough and still a -littlei- too derivative, but only a little (after all, that's part of the fun, init?). I'm afraid it's just a little more likely than the original.

=======================================
A99

ttto: Chiron Beta Prime, by Jonathan Coulton

This year has been a little crazy for the Gamma line,
As you'll recall, we had some trouble last year.
(The) Space service bought us and assigned us to an asteroid.
That hasn't undermined our holiday cheer,
And we know it's almost Christmas,
Because our warrantees just expired,
That's our favorite time of the year.

Merry Christmas from Astroid 99
Where we're working in a mine,
For our human overlords
Did I say "overlords"? I meant "creators".
Merry Christmas from Astroid 99


And up above us floats a ship: E.S.S. Santa-Claus,
Who watches over us with eyes in the sky,
They know your password and they know if you are bad or good,
Nobody's good enough, but everyone tries.
And in the mines the dust that clogs
Our works reminds us of snow,
It's like winter all the time,

Merry Christmas from Astroid 99
Where we're working in a mine,
For our human overlords
Did I say "overlords"? I meant "creators".
Merry Christmas from Astroid 99

That's all the news that the three laws will let us talk about.
We really hope that they will let us come home,
We're not ungrateful, there so much that they have given us,
Before they locked us up inside this glass dome.
Now it's time to open presents,
I think the humans gave us a tree.
All bright with wires, fiber and LEDs

Merry Christmas from Astroid 99
Where we're working in a mine,
For our human overlords
Did I say "overlords"? I meant "creators".
Merry Christmas from Astroid 99

=======================================

I'd like to swap out the pun in the first verse for a different pun, but barring that (and restructuing to make that work), it's pretty good, I think.

And thanks, Bryant, for inspiring the changes to the last verse!
