‘Satire: “The Government Can”‘ (2016)

See the source image

What do Uncle Sam and the Candy Man have in common?

What with various jidrools in government proposing to “stop” the natural processes of the earth that affect the climate, create “income equality” by doling out free money to drones who won’t work, and wipe out the human emotion known as “hate” by really and passionately hating everyone to the right of freakin’ Castro… it’s difficult to think of anything that the government will admit it can’t do!

Hence this wonderful parody of The Candy Man, once a mega-hit by Sammy Davis Jr.: The Government Can, by Tim Hawkins. Click the link and enjoy it.

I always found The Candy Man somewhat sinister. But not as sinister as government.


Satire: ‘The Government Can’

I don’t usually post music videos that aren’t hymns, but I’ve made an exception for this brilliant satirical ditty by Tim Hawkins–taking off on the old Sammy Davis Jr. hit, The Candy Man. One of my esteemed colleagues posted this on my chess page, and I’ve just gotta share it!
