Did someome say POOF?

Poof, the magic Mutant (to the tune “Puff the Magic Dragon”)

Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be.
Little Richard Dawkins, loved that rascal Poof.
And wrote him books to appease the kooks, oh what a silly goof!

Oh Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be

Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be

Together they would mutate Poof into a beluga whale
Richard kept a spectroscope trained on Poof’s mutating tail.
Nobel things and atheists bowed whene’er they came
Scientists would lower their flasks when Poof mutated a mane

Oh Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be

Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be

Mutations can’t go on forever, just like little boys
Antennaed wings and giant things doom nature’s mutant ploys
One gray night it happened, natural selection said no more
And Poof that Magic Mutant, mutated one last roar

His head was bent in sorrow, his tears fell like rain
Richard no longer went to write it gave him so much pain
Without his life-long friend Dick could not be brave
So Dick that evo-poofer sadly slipped in to his cave

Oh Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be

Poof the Magic Mutant, a-t-g-c
And changed them just by randomness just to see what he could be

(repeat chorus and fade…)

    I vote that we henceforth call evolution: poofolution! Ken Miller should now be referred to as a “poofolutionary biologist”;-)

    When “Poof” became the topic of recent threads I thought of Puff the Magic Dragon and then Joe turns up this parody —soo funny.

    Having been a lurker here for many years I have learned to appreciate Joe’s humor which clicks with mine… But more importantly his good posting here.

    @Joe: That was really rather clever. Are you a songwriter by trade so that this sort of thing comes easily for you?

    I think this should be adopted as the ID community’s official song, and should be sung at all major gatherings the way the National Anthem is at ball games;-)

    The crowd that has bleated “ID = Goddidit!” since the term ID was first coined, has essentially said “Darwindidit” since Darwin put his pen down.
