Friday Funny – Congressional Frosh

Elmer Beauregard of Minnesotans for Global Warming writes in with today’s funny: M4GW’s Newest Song – I’m a Denier

He writes:

It’s a parody of “I’m a Believer” written by Neil Diamond and performed by the Monkees. This version was written by Elmer Beauregard and Brian D. Smith and performed by Elmer and the M4GW players.

This song is in honor of all the new Republican Freshman entering Congress and the Senate most of whom are Deniers and proud of it.

I think this is song may be our “Tour de Farce”

Well at least he didn’t choose Manfred Mann’s “Blinded by the light”. Watch below.

Love the drummer.

Michael Mann is playing drums for a Climate Denier band?
Wow, we win?
(I know it can’t be him, but it does look like him. . . )
“Climate Denier” as the new “Yankee Doodle Dandy”?

Allencic

The landscape behind the band is classic midwestern glacial terrain formed by the deposition of rocky debris picked up during glacial advance and then dropped as the great continental glaciers melted and retreated. Without climate cooling to let the ice sheets form, and then climate warming to cause the glacial melt such landscapes wouldn’t exist. Wait a minute, that must mean that in the past, natural causes must have the climate changing. We know from AGW that must be impossible. LOL

Layne Blanchard

I think that could be their best! I like the original song anyway. What’s up with that chicken? Nice outfit. Probably helps with those cold November nights in Minnesota, home of the lovely and talented Michele Bachmann. Go M4GW!

Love it, another hit from the funniest bunch of deniers! I really liked their benny hill type ending! Keepem coming with more!

Dr T G Watkins

Brilliant. Great lyrics and well performed.
Once we start laughing at ‘them’ the battle is more than half one.
Laughing at old Adolf and his team cheered everyone up during WW2.

Rhoda R

Chicken Little. I agree that this should be our theme song from now on.

Lonnie Schubert

Love it!

Golf Charley

Christmas Number 1 both sides of the pond? It deserves it
Brilliant!

Steeptown

How did they get Mann to do the drums?

Layne Blanchard

The lower half of Gore shoulda been a poodle outfit….. 🙂

Jeff Wood

Layne, I think the bird is Chicken Licken.
Great band, great track, but I think they should have put out a call here for a girlie chorus.

PhilM

Well played, Sirs — well played!

Mike Davis

Gee I thought the one with the handicapped hair was the GAV! of Surrealclimate fame!

Climate is complex, and so are we
We all have many facets
But the rough divide about Alarm
Splits us in two segments.
One of these is not much fun
It wants to scare the kids
The other is more cheerful
And produces the best vids
It is the best for humour
For writing and cartoons
As it grapples with the miseries
Foretelling glooms and dooms.
So with the Friday Funny
May it give a little cheer
Tho’ but for that other side
We’d be somewhere else, not here.

Plenty thanks for this, Anthony! Just fantastic goodly in the bully eye!

Incriminating photos of Dr. Mann with naked tree rings.
They were quite revealing, and disturbing. Some looked like they were having a tree-ring circus.

Jimmy Haigh

Excellent. I’ve just sent it over to unReal Climate.

kramer

That was good! And I didn’t know Michael Mann played the drums…

Kev-in-UK

A friend of mine from Minnesota sent it to me today – a good laugh – especially Mr Mann lookalike on drums!

Our drummer just happens to look like that, what can I say.
Thanks for posting it Anthony!

Cool song … Mann on drums? Why not, he needs the money.

Richard Lawson

Happy Days
This could make it to No 1 in the UK charts. A big round of applause from Staffordshire, England. Thank you M4GW for making my day.

Moraine or esker?
One thing that we can’t deny is that the warmistas provide us with easy pickin’s. It will take the start of glaciers in the heart of the continent to get them off their [CO2] greenhouse gas induced paranoia. Unfortuately, it may come to that, the way that the temperature record has been Hansenized to show warming no matter what.
In the meantime, I have another reason to like the Republicans. ☺

Dr. Dave

It appears nearly everyone has come away with the same impression…who knew Michael Mann could play drums?
This is even funnier than “Hide the Decline” which was purged from YouTube because Mann got his knickers all in a twist.

I guess Mann is getting ready for the final collapse of AGW and the end of the money train it has brought him.
He is good with the hockey sticks. That takes skillz.

Dave Wendt

Good work lads! You provide hope that in some future moment we here in Minnesota will be remembered for something other than inflicting Al Franken and Jesse Ventura on the world.

Bruce Cobb

Oh-oh, MM is not gonna like that likeness of him. Glass of water for MM.
I agree, I think it’s the best yet. We get videos like these, and they get red buttons blowing people who don’t agree to smithereens. Our side is way cooler. And right, to boot!

Mike Jowsey

Bloody good laugh, thanks M4GW. In one brilliant effort you have removed the stigma of the D word and poked fun at it. Marvelous!

Waaay kool. Made my day!

Dave Springer

So can Michael Mann sue them for using a stage double of Michael Mann that looks more like Michael Man than the actual photograph of Michael Mann used in Hide the Decline?

I love M4GW and this new music video is excellent as usual.

Wondering Aloud

Instant classic?

“This is even funnier than “Hide the Decline” which was purged from YouTube because Mann got his knickers all in a twist.”
I don’t think the purge was ever 100% effective. MG4W removed the instance they themselves put on youtube and took down the instance on their own website but there was nothing they could do (or wanted to do) to stop anyone else.
Here is an original copy with 105,000 plays that’s been up 10 months now:

Hide the decline can still be viewed. Just google it and it pops up. I agree, it is quite good as well.

M4GW could certainly teach the 10:10 zealots a thing or two about how to make your points in a genuinely funny way.

Olaus Petri

I knew it! Dendrochronologists like sticks of any kind!
Thanks for this one! Awesome!

Bob Kutz

At 0:19, when the guy standing there with the hockey stick’s face becomes recognizable; I about fell out of my chair!!! It took me a few seconds to realize that’s not M(he who must not be named)M.
The whole thing is great; from the very ironic glacial terrain to the Benny Hill ending and everything in between.
Congrats M4GW, well done.
Too funny, happy Friday!

Good thing Mikey can’t sue because the drummer happened to look a bit like him (much better looking than MM, IMO).
Love it Elmer! Congrats again!
Thanks for posting, Anthony. I haven’t been on You Tube for a while so I would have missed it.

Ray

The irony of using auto-tune at the end… if the data don’t fit, you must admit.

I vote grammy and oscar…
“I’m a Denier”, written by Elmer Beauregard and Brian D. Smith and performed by Elmer and the M4GW players
Best song of the year, best artists of the year, Best video of the year

Robert Morris

Wonderful. You know, Michael Mann always acts like such a jerk and yet here he is showing what a good sport he is. Well done, Michael.
Now do it for real and not rely on a doppelganger.

Dr. Watkins, you’re absolutely right. I offer a WWII example, sung to the tune of Colonel Bogey (tune whistled decades later in the film, “Bridge on the River Kwai”:
Hitler has only got one ball;
Goering has two, but they are small;
Himmler has something similar,
But Dr. Goebbels has no balls
At all.
It still cheers me up.

Yo, bro! Hockey stix, drum stix, he da mann, an’ da mann be good wit wood.

Just the laugh I needed this evening. Thanks.

John Silver

Minnesotans for presidents!
All of them.

Hey, isn’t Minnesota known for their love of hockey? I hear Mr. Mann is pretty good with a hockey shtick. Maybe a good match…
Regards..

Layne Blanchard:
the chicken is Chicken Little, who shows up at M4GW events, letting everyone know that the earth is warming and the world is about to end.

MikeH

Actually, I just realized Mann turned in his hockey shtick for a drum shtick…
(rimshot heard in the background)
(couldn’t resist).
Regards..

Gary Crough

Thank you M4GW.
If Michael Mann is willing to sue to prohibit the use of his image in M4GW productions the drummer presents a lot of opportunity for using a double instead of Michael Mann images? A real-life double provides even more flexibility than images.

Dan in California

It looks like Manfred Mann beats Michael Mann. 🙂
