Maybe this belongs in the Radiohead appreciation thread?

“Bum” - a Numb parody from QC. I assure you, the lyrics are hilarious.

Les Bleu Poudre were an absurd humour group back in the 90’s, they had a TV show and were quite popular.

Doing my best here:

Police officer gave me a speeding ticket and I didn’t say thanks

At the street corner, I turned to the right, but flashed to the left

I ordered 7 CD’s from Columbia House and I didn’t pay

I go in the ladies room and I don’t raise the seat

I’ve put scratching powder in Bébé Jordy’s diaper and Vanessa Paradis’ too

(2 x 7 ) + (8 - 6) / 3 = 13 approx

You’re just a bum.
You’re just a bum.
You only do bad things
You’re just a bum.

I was duck hunting and the game warden gave me a ticket. I paid him in kind.

Every time I go through customs, I always declare bankruptcy and 2 packs of smokes.

While driving back from Rigaud...

The song Acky Breaky Dance got stuck in my head for a week.

I called Parliament to tell them that Kim Campbell looks like a bowling pin.

I borrowed 5$ from Clint Eastwood and never paid it back

Les chemises de l'archiduchesse sont-elles sčches? No they’re wet.
(don’t know how to translate that French tongue twister...)

I didn’t kiss Mitsou, she thought I was too ugly.

But I kissed Girouard because I had some debts.

OK, enough pal, song is over.



Btw, all the people walking around in the video were popular artists in the province back then. Proves again how big U2 were in my parts.

Ok thanks. Well, I know who Vanessa Paradis is but most of the other references are, as you say, quite localised.
