    As you know, I like to make pokemon parodies of famous songs. Well, now's here's your chance to join in. Here what we're doing today. We're paroding one of the great songs of the 80's, Dare to be Stupid by "Weird Al" Yankovic. Why this song? Simple-someone has to parody that guy for once. The name of the song will still be "Dare to be Stupid," but it will contain a series of idiotic suggestions pertaining to the card game, video games, and tv show.

    Here are the lyrics to the original song:

    A midi file of the song can be found here:

    A sound sample can be found here:

    In any case, your mission, whether or not you choose to accept it, is to provide idiotic things to do in the pokemon world-for example:

    Gold berry your babies
    You better fight Mewtwo with Magikarp
    It's like making Misty mad
    Give Team Rocket Pikachu

    Any way, you get the idea. Basically, these are the things you need to watch out for:

    Syllables per line: This is crucial. In order to be used in the song, your line must contain the same number of syllables as a line in the song. In particular I will need help with the short lines.

    Rhyme scheme: Whenever possible, make the line rhyme with another line in a manner that fits into the song.

    Additionally, some lines do not need to be replaced. These generally include the chorus and a few other lines (I'll point them out if they come up).

    If you wish, you may suggest which line your line replaces, but there's no guaruntee I'll put it there. As suggestions come in, I'll try to place them in the song as best I can.

    Remember, you don't have to go in order, but you can if that's easier for you.

    Now, get cracking!

    Put down your chainsaw and listen to me
    It's time for us to join in the fight
    It's time to let your babies grow up to be cowboys
    It's time to let the bedbugs bite
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Put down your Great Ball and listen to me
    It's time for us to go to the Gym
    Don't forget, Never 'volve your Kakuna
    Challenge the Leet 4 on a whim

    "Put down your Great Ball and listen to me"

    Oddly enough, that was the exact line I came up with. Come on, people let's get moving! Don't be shy!

    Hey Yoshi, I'm gonna call my brother in on this one (It's one of his fave songs), but, before I do, what lines did you want left unchanged? "Dare to be Stupid," I'm betting, as well as "We can be stupid all night?"

    What, you wouldn't want the line "get your Pojo workin' now"?

    I said the line didn't have to be changed. We could change them if it helps. And actually, that was a line I thought of as well. Great minds think alike.

    Mewtwo: Meaning his and...

    Grrr......
