Pig: I can't stop singing the Oscar Mayer Wiener jingle... Therapist: Great... now it's stuck in my head.
That makes three of us, although I’m alternating between that and the Oscar Myer B-O-L-O-N-G-N-A one !
Patient: “If I do ‘This little piggie’ in 3-part harmony, that’ll chase it outa your head!”
But he is a stoat fellow.
Best cure for earworms: the Final Jepardy tune, it’ll replace what you had stuck and you can even trained yourself to forget it.
When I was a kid, I sang it this way:Oh, I wish I had Oscar Mayer’s wienerThen all the girls would be in love with me!
“They say that when you have an earworm its the words, not the tune, that gets stuck in your head.”
‘They’ can say anything ‘they’ like, when it gets stuck in my head, its the melody as often as not. The infuriating part is when the words don’t come with it!
It’s the second verse they got – Oh, I’m glad I’m not an Oscar Meyer wiener …
What about good ear worms? I’ve had “My Dream” by Danny Kirwin, off of Fleetwood Mac’s Then Play On album for months and am enjoying it right now….
I think I saw the roast of the that guy on Comedy Central……Hey, anybody remember the Dean Martin Roasts?…….Great Stuff…
So many similar comments from everywhere… makes me think that “it’s a small world after all!”
What happens to the patient with the death wish who transfers it to his therapist?
My nominee for worst earworm, is “Grandma got run over by a reindeer”. I had that one, one Christmas season…couldn’t get it out of my head
Anyone notice the tea bag next to the Porky Psychiatrist ?Is Wiley saying that Tea Baggers are pigs ? Hummm…
@Gary McSpookI love singing the Ode to Joy – just in case there are any tigers around, but I always get the tune mixed up with the Moorsoldaten Lied, so I end up not singing either. Between all the words in German and the two similar tunes, earworms don’t stand a chance.
like ya know what i mean, ya knoiw…
I got two words…lime and coconut.
Thanks Jeff. Now I got that little ditty worming around with both sets of the Oscar meyer Lyrics. The MUPPET version!
We don’t listen to commercials (that is what the mute button is for) so I’m not familiar with that jingle.
Could be worse. Could be the guy who was walking along the beach one day and found a genie’s lamp stuck in the sand. After polishing it and polishing it, POOF! The genie appeared.“Thank you, O Master,” cried the genie, “for releasing me from my prison! For doing so, I shall grant you three wishes!”“Great!” thinks the man.“For my first wish,” the man tells the genie, “I would like to be the wealthiest man in the world.”POOF!“Done!” cried the genie.Spying his old broken down heap parked along the highway, the man said, “For my second wish, I would like a brand new sports car—convertible with a great sound system, if you will.”POOF!“Done!” cried the genie. “What would you like for your third wish, O Master?”The man thought and thought but he couldn’t come up with anything that he wanted. So he asked the genie, “Can I save my last wish for later?”“Anything you desire, O Master. When you have determined your third wish, all you have to do is say, ‘I wish..’ and it will be granted you.”And with that, POOF! The genie disappeared.Eying the setting sun, the guy decided to head for home. Gunning his new convertible down the highway (top down, of course), he was enjoying thoughts of nights out on the town in handsomely tailored clothes with a beautiful woman on each arm. He decided he wanted to hear some tunes on his fantastic new sound system. Since he didn’t have any CD’s or an Ipod with him, he tuned the radio to a local classic rock station. Enjoying the night ride, he began to hum along with the music. The music died down, then went to commercial. It was a commercial he was very familiar. Had a catchy jingle, so he began to sing along. Unfortunately for him the words went,“OH, I WISH I WAS AN OSCAR MAYER WIENER!”The moral of the story: be careful what you wish for, you might get it.
At least its not“Feelings” or “Don’t worry, be happy” or “Achy Breaky Heart”(Now let those simmer a while.)My evil deed is done.
Bad choice analyst too piggy….
Funny. But Oscar Mayer uses beef, which doesn’t come from pigs, unless they are GMO’d.
Gee, and I thought I could be the first one to politicize this joke. Only I was thinking along the animals rights line.
let’s all agree on one spelling please: Meyer or Mayer….I believe the song uses the latter version.
Can’t help but think about the fact an Oscar Mayer wiener’s contents read a little like Noah’s ark, maybe even a little of the ark is slipped in?
There’s a very simple method for getting an obnoxious song out of your head. Substitute another tune.
All together now:
Hot dogs!Armor hot dogs!What kind of kids eat Armor hot dogs?
“its the words, not the tune, that gets stuck in your head.”They say wrong – at least, in my case. I often get loops of symphonies and other instrumental works lodged in my head. I knew a fellow at work who couldn’t imagine my “hearing” tunes over and over. He also refused to believe that Beethoven composed his Ninth Symphony while completely deaf. Takes all kinds, I guess.
My dad had a cure for a song running over and over. A knock up aside your head. Makes the record quit skipping he would say. Personally I just think he liked knocking heads.Remember putting a penny on the 45 arm to make the arm quit skipping? Bumping the record player box?
Mark Twain wrote an essay about this subject. He got the streetcar conductor’s jingle “Punch, brothers, punch with care; punch in the presence of the passenjare.. .” stuck in his head and it about drove him crazy until he went for a walk with a friend and told him the jingle. Then the friend went crazy with it and Twain was free of it.
Damn, you people!!! Do you know how many of those songs are now permanently embedded in my head…..these worms could go on all week!
“Its a small world after all!!!!!
♪what walks down stairs♪ alone or in pair and make a slinketty sound
♪plop, plop, fizz fizz♪♪♪
Number Six, I can’t help but notice that there are four file drawers and 4 certificates on the wall…..Wonder what that’s all about……Coincidence? I don’t think so.
Keep dreaming bud….and one day you WILL be part of an Oscar Mayer wiener …..That is if they still make them from real meat!
It’s because of the sausage link…or would you prefer a “peppermint Patty”?
And this little piggy went, “Aaaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhhh” all the way to the psychatrist.
He might get his wish…
Im wondering if Cap’n Eddie can use all these earworms for bait
