    I’m thinking something to the tune of, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”… just in time for the holiday season. I’m not that talented, though. Oswego Willy, want to take a shot at it?

    Pat’s got a python and it’s
    the biggest one yet
    And when the debt python comes home
    He can’t ever spend

    Because it’s underfunded all night
    And it Squeezing so tight
    Pats on a debt python
    Pat can hand out checks..

    Well the teachers wont teach
    A prison guards can’t reach
    There is no hiding from the python
    he will eat your whole balance sheet

    Paula Abdul’s hit “Cold Hearted Snake” about a cheating two-timer should speak to a lot of AFSCME members who helped Quinn get elected.

    I can’t follow Youtube links at work…Did anyone pick “Stranglehold” by Ted Nugent?

    It should be obvious…

  19. - The Shadow - Monday, Nov 19, 12 @ 12:13 pm:

    Considering this is the snake from “The Jungle Book” I’m gonna go with “The Bare Necessitates,” which oddly enough is an appropriate song for this issue.

    “The Rake’s Song” by the Decemberists

    I had entered into a bargain
    In the summer of my election year
    And the bells rang for my election
    Only now do I remember it clear
    Alright, alright, alright

    No more a rake and no more a gadfly
    I was elected and it whetted my thirst
    Until the unions started talking about pensions
    Only then did I reckon my curse
    Alright, alright, alright
    Alright, alright, alright

    First came AFSME demanding raises
    Then came the teachers and that wretched SEIU
    Ugly cost shift died on delivery
    Mercifully taking Ty Fahner along
    Alright, alright, alright

    What can one do when one is Governor?
    Shamefully saddled with five pension plans
    All that I wanted was the freedom of a new life
    So my burden I began to divest
    Alright, alright, alright
    Alright, alright, alright

    SEIU, I buried after feeding her foxglove
    The teachers were easy, they drowned in the bath
    AFSCME fought but was easily bested
    Burned their contract for incurring my wrath
    Alright, alright, alright

    And that’s how I came your humble narrator
    To be living so easy and free
    Expect you think that I should be haunted
    But it never really bothers me
    Alright, alright, alright
    Alright, alright, alright

    Squeezy the Python
    Was an Ineffectual Pension Meme
    With some yellow scales and a long gray tongue
    And a bizarre youtube ad scheme.


  24. - Pot calling kettle - Monday, Nov 19, 12 @ 12:38 pm:

    Turns out there are a lot of Decemberist songs that would work with only minor modifications.

    As a note of information: Rich and his brothers knew every line of every song on the “Jungle Book” album. And so did I as we sang them together marching throughout the house to “Col Hathi’s March” pushing my wife a little closer to the edge.


  30. - Joe Bidenopoulous - Monday, Nov 19, 12 @ 1:18 pm:

    To the tune of something you’ve never heard unless you like subversive music created for two-year olds:

    Chorus:
    I’m Squeezy the pension snake
    Created by a loony flake
    I’m Squeezy the pension snake
    I’m comin’ to your town

    Verses:
    Slitherin’ round the Capitol
    Feastin’ on new revenues
    Oh! There’s bad Tom Cross
    He wants to make the evening news

    I’ll show him a thing or two
    Feed me crap, I’ll grow some more
    When Tom sees me comin’ round
    It’s Katy bar the Office door!

    Some say I’m art, and some say no
    Big red eyes and a goofy grin
    A cost shift makes most sense
    Don’t count on it from Commander Quinn

    The only way to shrink my size
    Is commitment and some wounded pride
    You’ve got to share the pain
    Or grow me more til you abide

    There are loads of good ones, and I bet yours is good, so I will catch up.

    Squeezy, the Pension Python,
    is not a smart game plan.
    And if he came through email,
    He would probably go to Spam.

    All of the other game plans
    mand Quinn laugh and call them names.
    Those Plans were not like Squeezy
    “Look Staff, we ain’t playin games”.

    Then one early Monday Morn
    Quinn’s staff came to say:
    “Squeezy is are plan, alright,
    So Rich don’t post until tonight?”

    Then all the Posters loved him
    as they shouted out with glee,
    Rudolph the Squeezy the Pension Python,
    you’ll go down in history!

    Willy, awesome.

    Alternatively:
    Squeezy the Pension Python
    had a very shaky start,
    Had you been there to see it
    You would say he had no heart

    All of the pension pundits
    looked at him and called him names,
    They weren’t gonna let that Squeezy
    Bring an end to Pension Games

    Then one hazy Turkey Eve
    Quinnie said to Squeeze,
    “Squeezy with your head so big
    Won’t you do me one more gig?”

    Then as the kiddies watched him,
    and they shouted one two three
    “Squeezy the Pension Python,
    who the heck are you to me?”

    Besides blatantly ripping off the Disney snake, you have to wonder how much of that clip art they used in this video was actually paid for, either. I don’t think this looks very professional at all. Its a muddled message at best, and not very creative. We waited HOW LONG for this now? I would love to know the name of the person that came up with/authorized this hot mess. I’m putting them up for a Golden Lion at Canne. (It may look a little bit like Simba.)

    –”I saved you,” cried that woman
    “And you’ve bit me even, why?
    You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
    “Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin
    “You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in” –
