Brenda's song about the joys of being distracted by our favorite game! Background chant recorded live at Detccon1, the 2014 North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC).
There was a time when waits in line truly bummed me out.
My appointment set at 9 a.m… “But it’s 10:02!” I’d shout.
Now, happily, you’ll hear no grumbling words…
As I whip out phone or tablet and play “Angry Birds!”
Eggs and bacon, eggs and bacon,
Eggs and bacon, eggs and bacon...
See the grunters in their bunkers,
Load an eager birdy and take aim.
Draw the slingshot, fling my birdshot,
Sending pigeons out to soar and maim.
Hear the boars and piglets snigger
When my feathered missile hits the roof.
Joyful smashing , mighty crashing,
Then inevitable “flop” and “POOF!”
My Angry Birds fill the sky,
Raining death from on high.
“Vengeance for the quiche!” I cry.
Pigs must die, die, die!
Morendum porcos! Pigs must die!
Biddies bungle in the jungle,
In the city streets and desert plains.
Hear a duck quack. Poke a jetpack.
Beat the bangers into mash again.
Raging red birds, bleating blue birds,
Cranky bantam cocks and hostile tits.
Pounding orc swine into pork rind,
Pulverizing sties to bacon bits.
Grating waiting now abating,
I play placidly in checkout lines.
No more uptight at the stop light;
Queues for loos are now a grand old time.
Tails at movies can be groovy,
And those tardy waitresses don’t rile.
Bombing hogs heads into sausage
With a flock of birdies makes me smile!
