Shot or clubbed, either one....

The queen of clubs
Liked pizza subs
And all their savory taste

The knave of clubs
Ate veggie subs
And had a smaller waist

... which is why he must be shot.

. (with apologies to Lewis Carroll)

I don't get it. Oh well.

Janna said...

Mike: It's a parody of a poem written by Lewis Carroll (the guy who wrote Alice In Wonderland). One of the stanzas is about The Queen of Hearts who made some tarts, and then the Knave of Hearts stole the tarts. I changed it to the "Queen of Clubs", since the Manic Monday theme is "club". And, for added quirkiness, I photoshopped my face onto the Queen of Clubs.
Get it now? :)

I love your work.

Did someone say "parodies"?

Janna Queen

You can blog, you can write,
'shopping your face on just right.
See that girl, watch that meme,
Diggin' the Janna Queen

Sunday night and the blogs are slow
Looking out for this post, you know.
Where she makes the janku fit,
Vowels are the thing
You need to be cow-how-nting.
Anybody could be that shy
Night is young and the girl is high
With a bit of werewolf bait, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a "jance"
And when you get the chance...

You are the Janna Queen, tongue in cheek, only acts thirteen.
Janna Queen, people read you from their latrine (oh yeah!)
You can Jance, you can't hide
treating insomnia right
See that girl, watch her feed
Diggin the Janna Queen.

What a knave, to like veggies better than pizza.

(Thanks to Whall I'm going to be singing Dancing Queen all day tomorrow)

Janna said...

CWM: I'm glad! :)

Whall: Wait... you read me from your latrine?

Marilyn: I know! Whall has corrupted me too. I'm humming it right now, in fact, which is saying a lot, considering I'm not a fan of disco. I can almost see the mirrored ball hanging from the ceiling... and the bell bottoms... (*gasp*) NO! Not double-knit polyester!!!

bv said...

Way creative post!!!!! LOVE IT!

I didn't realize it was a play on AiW until I read your comments and that made me realize that it was even cooler than I thought!

Then I read Whall's post and totally realized just how not creative I am!!!!

Happy MM!

whall said...

@Janna - don't you know that people with blackberries use them in the bathroom a lot?

Janna said...

BV: Happy MM to you too. :)

Whall: I'm surprised we haven't yet seen that in a DITL. I dare you.

Stine said...

Wonderful paropoem! And what creative readers you have too. Must go see Mamma Mia now.

Alice said...


Alice at I Was Born2Cree8

Janna said...

Stine: Thanks for visiting!

Alice: I was hoping you'd say that. :)

anthonynorth said...

Loved the humour in that.

Janna said...

AnthonyNorth: Hopefully Lewis Carroll would have seen the "humour" in it too. :)

Gwenhwyfar said...

Wanna know something stupid? I had no idea that Lewis Carroll actually wrote that poem. I have read Alice in Wonderland and all, but I didn't think it was an original poem. (I'm going to blame that on the fact that I first heard the poem before I'd read the book.)

lucy said...

Too funny and so clever!

Kimmie said...

Hahahaha! You cracked me up! Thanks for the Monday pick me up!


Gayle said...

You are a witty one!

Janna said...

Gwen: Wow! And you work in a library, right? ;)

Lucy: I'm so glad!

Kimmie: Yay!

Gayle: AND I play the harp!

Gwenhwyfar said...

I know, I know! The shame! *hangs head and weeps* (on the upside, I wrote vaguely insulting things about you in my new blog... hehehehe)

Travis said...


Janna said...

Gwen: Hey! I checked out your new blog and I can't find anything even partially insulting (so far). I was all excited, all set to fight and make up, and... and then... nothing. (*sob*)
On the bright side, I added it to my blogroll anyway. :)

Travis: Hee! :D

Gwenhwyfar said...

hahaha... hover over the link to your site. ;)

Evil Genius said...

Makes perfect sense to me. The thin-waisted bastard.

Janna said...

Gwen: LOL!! Actually I'm kind of comfortable with being the crazy cat lady of the blogosphere. It makes people want to keep their distance, yet they become so simultaneously repulsed and fascinated that they can't help but look. Sort of like gawking at a train wreck. Oooh! Can I be the "train wreck of the blogosphere"? (Am I already?)

EvilGenius: Exactly! How dare he?

Mo said...

I have to ask: Does whall have a blog, and if so are his posts as amusing as his comments here?

My doctor would like me to switch to veggie subs, but I now have a reason (Janna would shoot me) to stick with my meatball sub.

Janna said...

Morgen: Yes, Whall has a blog. It's called (drum roll please)... "The Blog Of Whall". Look in my sidebar.

MMmmmm... Meatball subs....
