It’s Friday, Friday, Getting Crucified Day!

All the Skepchicks had a similar reaction to this: we hate song parodies. We love this. Enjoy.

  1. Crucifixion?


    Good, out the door line on the left one cross each.


    Um no freedom.


    Yeah they said I hadn’t done anything and I could go live on an island somewhere.

    Oh I say That’s very nice Well off you go then…

  2. Glad to see something good come from that poorly auto-tuned abomination.

    Also occurred to me that could get a sizeable boost in traffic if you were to change your last name to Black. If you could stomach it, of course.

    1. Probably not any more than changing her name to Free Porn Viagra Boobies Hot Anal Dating Yahoo Google.

      I think the searches are pretty saturated.

      1. I am a former Nigerian finance official who needs help with transfer of funds…….I have found you through our common interest expressed in your post

        1. I just tried and the first hit was this page. Second hit appears to be incest porn (not going to click it)

          Suggested new slogan: Skepchick: more popular than incest!

    1. Was just having this conversation last night, actually. I like Weird Al as a person — he seems like a pretty cool guy. But he makes music for 11-year olds, and the moment I hit 12 I was relieved to finally admit that it was awful.

  3. I still haven’t heard the original, only the Colbert/ Fallon/ Roots version, but this was great!

  4. Such a mean spirited song only serves to reinforce the notion that atheism and being a good person are mutually exclusive. Besides, it’s not funny. Two thumbs down.

    1. That’s funny you think it’s mean spirited, because the other responses I’ve seen have wondered whether it was made by a Christian.

      I don’t really see anything mean-spirited about it, but maybe I wasn’t listening closely enough.

    2. Actually, what I liked about it was that it wasn’t smug and condescending atheist propaganda.

      I thought it was just as easy to appreciate for both believers and nonbelievers.

    3. Hate to break it to you, but it wasn’t written by an atheist.

      Although I did try to make the drums sound as blasphemous as possible.

  5. @teambanzai;
    (Oh my here we go then):
    No, I was only joking, it really is crucifixion!
    (from the basement):
    You lucky, lucky bastards!

  6. I actually think there are a lot of Christians out there that would think this was great and would wonder if it was some kind of homemade evangelism tool. Parody should bite harder IMO.
