Ode to a Rubber Dinosaur

i-2005906afbaca1d0ea9e6555bc468da7-sm_rubber_dino2.jpgRubber dino, you're the one,

You make bathtime lots of fun

Rubber dino, I'm awfully fond of you

Doo-doo doo-de-doo

Rubber dino, fearsome roar,

Good thing you're a herbivore

Rubber dino, I'm awfully fond of you

doo-doo doo-de-doo

Every day when I,

get undressed next to the sink,

I find a

Little fella who's,

cute and yellow and extinct

When I squeeze you, water squirts,

Then I giggle, 'til it hurts

Rubber dino, I'm awfully fond of you

Doo-doo doo-de-doo

You're my favorite bathtime toy,

Watch out for that asteroid!

Rubber dino, I'm awfully fond of

Rubber dino, I'm awfully fond of,

Rubber dino, I'm awfully fooooonnnd of yoooooouuuuu!!!!


(The rubber dino in question is one from this set, and it's one of SteelyKid's favorite bath toys. If you've been living in a cave for the last forty years, and don't know the tune, here's the original.)

Wow. Just wow. I realize that I haven't exactly been enamored of Richard Dawkins lately, at least not as much as I was, say, three or four years ago. Most of this came about gradually, although the final nail was driven into the proverbial coffin last fall, when Atheist Alliance International…
After 3 hours of deliberation, the jury found Kent Hovind and his wife GUILTY of tax fraud. Goodbye, 'Dr' Dino.
Poor Dr Dino, AKA Kent Hovind, AKA batshit crazy fundy guy, is a notorious tax cheat, and now the law has finally caught up with him. "Dinosaur Adventure Land" has been shut down, and he risks fines and the possibility of buildings being razed. You know, Al Capone was taken down for tax evasion,…
As the Hubble servicing mission is going up, hopefully, we contemplate what on Earth is going on with NASA. Like, why the cuts? Well, I have no inside info on this, have not talked to anyone back east, so I'm guessing: first, NASA is just not that much of a priority - too small, and the science…

Good eve,

sink should be sinky,
extinct should be extincty.

Don't worry, kids will teach ya
and their small and won't beatja...

I suggest you submit that version to Sesame Street. Who knows, they might buy it off you for a nominal fee. Which would accomplish two things: You would get to add songwriter to your resume, and the song would give creationist heartburn if it made it on the air. Both worthy enough goals.

Record Steelykid singing it(in the tub?)and it might make one of their shorts. Worse case they say no. Or they send out a hit squad of Muppet chickens.

I am suffering from scale shock: Seeing rubber dino next to SteelyKid instead of Appa made me do a huge double take!

Ethan is not you. You are Chad. Which one of my favorite sciblings is the father of Steely Kid?

But Cuttlefish has a book of her poems for sale. It is good.

This should at least be done up for YouTube.
