BFW Theme Song Contest!

While vainly Googling “Big Fat Whale” I came across this delightful song. Scroll down to the very bottom or be lazy and read the quoted lyrics below:

Slippery Fish, Slippery Fish….
Swimming through the water ( use hands to act out fish swimming through the water)
Slippery Fish , Slippery Fish
Gulp, Gulp ( Each time you say Gulp…use hands on either side of mouth and slide down throat)
OH NO ! (When you say this, put hands on face)
He got eaten by……..

A Tuna Fish, A Tuna Fish…..
Swimming through the water ( use hands to act out a tuna fish swimming through the water)
A Tuna Fish, A Tuna Fish
Gulp, Gulp
OH NO!
He got eaten by……..

An Octopus, an Octopus….
Swimming through the water ( use arms and wave them up and down for Octopus arms)
An Octopus, an Octopus…
Gulp, Gulp
OH NO !
He got eaten by…….

A Great Big Shark, A Great Big Shark….
swimming through the water (use arms from elbows to hands to look like a shark mouth opening and closing)
A Great Big Shark, A Great Big Shark…..
Gulp, Gulp
OH NO!
He got eaten by….

A Big Fat Whale, A Big Fat Whale…..
swimming through the water ( Use a deep voice and hold arms out to your sides to look like a Big Fat Whale)
A Big Fat Whale, A Big Fat Whale….
Burp, Burp….
EXCUSE ME! ( use a higher voice to say this part)

The Contest: Submit a video (YouTube, MySpace video, or whatever floats your boat) or mp3 of yourself (or group) performing this song. Feel free to interpret it however you see fit.

The Deadline: May 18th 11:59PM EDT

Submissions: Email them to me (whale [at] bigfatwhale.com) or post a link in the comments for this thread.

The Judging: A panel of Brian McFadden and his roommates will select the winner using their nerdly engineering skills for quantifying and analyzing data.

The Prize: One of everything in the Big Fat Whale store, including an original cartoon and print! (Originals are limited to what I haven’t sold already.) Group entries will have to split the winnings.

Runners-up: 1st and 2nd runners-up get a signed copy of Sea Anomie. And their entry being posted on the blog and the front page.

I’ll be plugging this throughout the site shortly, but decided to give you Big Fat Blog readers a heads-up.

  1. Oh, hey I’ve been reading this web comic for a year or so now, and I had some time finally, so I made a video for this thing. Also, those consarn copyright laws wouldn’t hassle you too much. It probably wouldn’t be difficult to secure mechanical or sync rights to that song, not to mention the fact that it is derivative of a number of folk songs.
