I had hoped that The Homevision Song Contest would bring together the strife torn inhabitants of Badgertown.
As you know, following the referendum debacle, the various factions have split the town apart by building walls around their sectors.
So, instead of the usual single entry from Badgertown we had three songs - one from the central district (still called Badgertown and ruled over by the King of the Badgers), one from Progressville and one from Anarchadia (the enclave run by the Badfort Crowd).
All seemed to be going swimmingly, with the various groups applauding each other's songs.
Then Beaver and his cronies got everyone riled up with an awful punk dirge - a vicious attack on the King of the Badgers!
Boom bang-a-bang-bang Blow up the Palace Boom bang-a-bang-bang Down with hereditary monarchy Boom bang-a-bang-bang Throw off the yoke of Badger oppression!
This, of course, received a resounding null points from everyone - except the Badfort contingent.
The winner was a beautifully melodic song, submitted by a very beautiful Crookball lady representing Lonely Tower.
Congratulations and celebrations It is so wonderful to have Uncle as our friend La lalala lalala lalala...La lalala lalala la...
Who would believe that we could be so happy and contented? With such a generous landlord and philanthropist! La lalala lalala lalala...La lalala lalala la...
We were afraid that maybe he thought he was above us But he cares for all his tenants, however lowly! La lalala lalala lalala...La lalala lalala la...
Congratulations and jubilations
We want the world to know we're happy as can be! La lalala lalala lalala...La lalala lalala la...
What lovely sentiments - I blush at their kindness.
