If you need to ask, then you probably aren’t South African, and there’s not much more I can do to help. If you DO end up liking the song so much that you’ll be willing to listen to it for hours on end, day after day, then you can download the MP3 at the Steri Stumpie Ambassdor site.

Did you know that ABBA sang a song about martial arts? Neither did I till I saw this.

Just so you know how the song goes, watch this rendition with Battlestar Galactica clips built in, and then you can sing along to my own version below.

With apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan:

As it often seems to happen that others have me woe’d
I’ve got a little list, I’ve got a little list
Of the trafficky offenders who’d be better off the road
I’ve got a little list, I’ve got a little list

There are those who always have their windows
Tinted far too black
Rich twits who misuse GTIs
And those with trailers at the back
And the fools that go too slowly
And then fools that drive too fast
And idiots who drive cars as if this day were their last
And morons who at last minute will cut you off insist
They’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

I’ve got them on a list! I’ve got them on a list!
And they’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

There’s the beggars who play music from their speakers far too loud
I’ve got a little list, I’ve got a little list!
Their music going “doof doof doof” and deafening the crowd
They’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

There’s taxi drivers, scooter riders, cyclists of all kinds
Bus drivers who don’t know just how to move their big behinds
All those who chat on cellphones while they’re weaving round the bend
And pedestrians crossing highways: may they seek a faster end
And idiots driving recklessly through any fog or mist
They’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

I’ve put them on a list! I’ve put them on a list!
And they’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

Impatient fools who don’t know how join the “back of queue”
I’ve got a little list! I’ve got a little list!
And those who indicate too late should really learn their cue
They’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!
There’s Porsches, BMWs, and of course Mercedes-Benz
Toyotas, Hondas, Volkswagens, and Jaguars by their tens
Suzukis, Vauxhalls, Opels, Mustangs, Corvettes, Chevrolets
Ferraris, Maseratis, Fords, Subarus, and Hyundais
But anyway I think by now you must have got the gist
They’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

I’ve put them on a list! I’ve put them on a list!
And they’d none of them be missed!
They’d none of them be missed!

I’m a linguaphile (someone who loves languages, you dolt! Nothing vaguely naughty about it!) so I watched this vid with fascination. I’d ordinarily say “amazing how this genre of music caught on around the world”, but all I can think of is “Jeez…that Swiss guy’s hair is so 70′s!

Enjoy it! (the vid, not the hair.)

It’s amazing what you can get your fans to do, innit? Must have taken a good deal of coordination from the director, but it’s still a cool vid nonetheless.

I just wasn’t expecting to to happen so quickly. Still, despite the sadness of the affair, every famous death comes with a certain amount of humor, and some of these jokes, while tasteless, ARE funny. For example:
Michael Jackson is not going to be buried or cremated but recycled into shopping bags so he can remain white, plastic and dangerous for kids to play with.

Your best MJ jokes in the comments, please!

I figure you’re going to need a little help with this one, so here’s your clue; a music video from geek artists Lemon Demon (one of my favorite geek artists! I’ve blogged about him before, if you can recall that far back!) called “Ode To Crayola”. Not much of a clue, I admit, but it’s still something! Yep, it’s another quiz, since I figured y’all enjoyed the last one so much. This one is to do with Crayola crayons. Can you name all the Crayola colors? Bear in that the names of the colors have gotten a little wilder over the years, so the full complement of 120 crayons is a tall order–hence the clue to give you an idea of how the color names have changed. Still, you might do better than you think. I only scored a measly 46, so I figure you can probably do better than that.
