  1. Amy Murrell. So cute. I don’t understand why there is so much “hate” against rhyming. I know that when it isn’t done well it can be problematic but good rhymers are so much fun to read!

  2. Oh, how I love a good parody! ‘Course, now I’ll be singing “Shake it Off” all day. And annoying anyone who happens to be around me. And then they’ll ask WHY I’m singing that song and I’ll tell ’em about the parody. And RhyPiBoMo. Winning. 🙂

  3. NATALIE LYNN TANNER: WOW! Well, THANKS to Laurel, Angie, and Katya, I now have a DEFINITE resident earworm! Not sure if I should really thank you for that or not! HE!HE!HE!

    Is it bad I don’t think I’ve ever heard the original? Basically if it didn’t come out before 1990 I probably don’t know it. But, that said, good job! Makes me want to try a throwback song parody, except I can’t sing and can’t play an instrument. So I’ll just tap my feet and try to sing along! 🙂

  5. Chris Clayson-“Shake it off”! Such a great performance by all. Yes, it makes me want to get to my rhyme on.
    Thank you so much!
