About this creation

Team: The Expendables

Category 25: King For a Day
"How would things be if YOU were in charge? Would you sit on a throne and rule from on high? Would you rid the streets of crime and abolish world hunger? Would you dress Phipson in a gopher suit and make him ride a unicycle while singing the national anthem of Bangladesh? It's your world for 24 hours. What would you do?"

Original words by Wes Pitter. Sing it to any tune you like. Inspired by the recent public offering of Yelp, which was big news in my area of the world.


Sittin' in my mama's kitchen,
Keyboard fingers got that itchin',
Wanna' text and type and chat -
Can't find no place to do all that!



Buy a server, get a URL,
Type some codes (learn how to spell),


Make a hub for useless chatter,
Slander, gossip, it doesn't matter:

With social media, I'm King for the day!
All you fools gotta read what I say!



Had broccoli for lunch,



Then took a nap,



Worked out at the gym,
And did some other stuff.



"Chirps" and "Helps!", "Likes" and "Friends,"
And advertising that never ends.
Someday we hope to make real money...



So keep playing Dorkville



And Irate Bunnies!

With social media, I'm King for the day!
All you losers gotta see what I play.



So follow Target, Starbucks, and Mickey-Ds,
And just you try to follow our privacy policies!



Gettin' real popular, we grow and grow!
Any day now we'll have our IPO.
When that happens - now this is too funny -
You'll have your friends and I'll have your money!

With social media, I'm King for the day!
All you jerks gotta do what I say.
My site's so addictive you can't get off it,
So keep clicking links so I can turn a profit!


Building notes: Facebook seems to always be on the radio news I listen to, between their looming IPO, lack of true profit, and constantly changing look and privacy policies. I even heard local Lexus dealerships were beefing up to get ready for the IPO. So...with Yelp joining the fun, I thought my King for the day should be a regular guy who got rich by creating a social networking site.

So, Team Expendables, what do you think?




Yes, the weird Chinese food container had more broccoli in it. Thought you caught me on that one, huh? I made at least 10 of the things.

Great series of builds, and the poem tied it all together nicely. Dorkville... LOL! xD

I've been extremely busy for months now, and my MOCpages time has been pretty limited. But, it seems this kind of really light-hearted, well-built work has been in short supply. This was a breath of fresh air, Wes. Well built, excellent presentation, and down right fun. You get a 5 from me, amigo - nice work!

Yelp = Amazing. Wes, this is one of my favorites of the contest so far. I love the atmosphere in this creation. Everything from the broccoli, to the awesome t-shirt, to the amazing floor pattern, to the flawless rhymes, this creation really appeals to me. Despite my feelings however, I think the builds are somewhat simple and not enough to earn you a 5. Score: a well earned and respectable 4
