Does anyone like Achy Breaky Song? I thought it was pretty disliked.

Al still wouldn't do a parody about Donald Trump. It would be redundant.

I'm very glad this challenge was judged by someone who knows a lot about parodies (wasn't too informed about ToasterBoy) and that it was judged without the teams listed. To me this was a very objective decision (sorry you keep losing ladies).

Donald trump is a great subject for a song. The only thing I will agree with is that it seems less likely that Al would have written a song about trump versus a song about video games, although their song wasn't specific enough. I feel like the surprising nature of our parody speaks to our abilities as writers. Who cares about how many nobodies have made lame parodies of Uptown Funk? Of the 2 songs parodied I think Al would have better luck with Uptown Funk. Wouldn't that be awesome if Al parodied one of these songs now? :lol:

I'm glad ToasterBoy liked our parody more.

Also for the record I love a Achy Breaky Song after the fact. So hilarious considering how terrible the original was.

At least only one vote can be cast per person with a poll.





That way Team Groovy can't have Big Spoon spam approval when they fail.

What are you talking about? You were one of the only non-team members to post in the girls first topic. If anything you spammed that topic to their benefit more the BS helped us!

However, with a game, you must wait for someone else to have a turn before you can go again. No one had the ability to double post, but you guys did.

You could have double posted easily if you had something to add. The fact no one else would respond to your posts might be a different issue though.

Except one would edit their previous post rather than double post. Adding something in a new post rather than editing would be a cheap method to get more posts, and it would surely get called out on after a couple of times.
