Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!
Let’s mix things up a little this week. Growing up, I was a fan of Weird Al Yankovic (heck, I guess I’m still a fan, really). As a word guy, I loved writing parodies of songs. It was great creative training, though I didn’t know that then. It gave me practice writing words that fit a certain phrasing and melody, and I got to make up funny stories. Good times.
So here’s today’s writing prompt. Let’s write a parody. Or at least a few lines. Don’t feel like you have to do the whole song. Just do whatever you have the time or inclination for. It’s just a fun creative exercise.
Today, let’s write a parody of:
“Drunk On A Plane” by Dierks Bentley
You can write about anything, but here’s a suggestion:
“Skunk On A Plane”
