Pardon My Parody: What Happens In San Francisco

...and with apologies to Tony Bennett. I smelled a fart in San Francisco, It wafted out across the Bay. An Oakland breeze just blew it back, A tourist gasped, "A gas attack!" A drag queen shrieked, "Oy vey! That's gross!", and swooned away. Who cut that fart in San Francisco The CIA is keen to see. If they find out it's from North Korea or Iran, It could be the fart that started World War III.

Sounds like a Peter Sellers Inspector Clouseau flick if we just resurrect the funnyman!

How would they know about this lapse, When they must write poo-tracking apps? With all the weed sold on the street, Those pungent smells would sure compete. Smell like a brewery - they need a bath I hear it is a wicked draft. The gate's not golden, no it sure ain't; Newsom just ripped one and peeled the paint.

Parodies and ditties run through my brain all the time - I enjoyed reading and responding.

Thanks, Ilene, and, yes, I did, altho I don't think there was as much tension between us and N. K. and Iran at the time.
