'Bad Company' (By Bad Company, from their album, 'Bad Company') has always been one of my favorite songs. But for years I've been mentally substituting my own lyrics.

I got bored, so I transcribe them thusly

Space Marine, Always on the hunt
Emperor is the rising sun
Oh I was forged bolt-gun in my hand
All in black, I'll make my final stand
That's why they call me Death Company
And I can't deny
Death Company
Till the day I die
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Tainted souls
Berserkers, we are called
Drank the blood, and threw away our souls
Battlegrounds
They all know our name
Chain-sword sound, is our way to maim
I can hear them scream
Death Company
And I won't deny
Bad Bad company
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Hey hey hey
Death Company
I can't deny
Death Company
Till the day I die
And they say it's
Death Company
Oh Yeah---Yeah
Death Company
Till the day I die
Oh Yeah

Tell me that you are not a beast
Oh But I am
Death Company
It's the way I slay
Bloody for bloody
Oh nobody better cross me
Death calls
Death calls
Yeah
We're Death Company
Kill and drink blood

You do realise you made a song about Warhammer 40,000, and you took it seriously?

Good luck getting taken seriously by anyone else for the rest of your life.

I don't recall ever having taken it seriously, that's why it says PARODY in the post title.

I just thought it would be fun/funny and...well, I was bored.

You'd just better hope nobody you know ever finds out about this. I've seen this happen before, and it's awkward as all bloody hell unless you only have friends/associates/family that are involved to a certain degree in the game.

Admittedly, it could be much worse. You could have made a song about the Necron fluff to the tune of Tom Jones' Sex Bomb. That'd be like social kryptonite.

If you get this bored, you need a hobby. Wait...

I was raised by gamers, most of my friends are gamers those that aren't know about gaming and, well, I'm an adult who hangs out with adults. It's not like the mean kids at school will sing it while they stuff me in a locker or somehting.

Seriously, who over the age of 16 stops and thinks "What if they make fun of me?! I'd better go back to my room, touch up my mascera and put that Cure album back on instead."

Besides, we all play with little plastic spacemen and pretend to make them fight. If someone doesn't get it, nothing you do will help.

Seriously, school has nothing to do with it. It's almost uncanny how many times someone can bring up the same damn story in new and exciting ways over the course of a single family get-together, for one. Certainly, you're old enough that you can realise you just don't care what anyone else thinks about you, but you're deluding yourself if you think social condemnation magically shrinks to mere polite ignorance after you become an adult.

It does, to a degree, because as an adult you get to choose who you spend time with (outside of work). You're not forced to tolerate an annoying family member or the cool kids at school. And as an aduult you can tell a friend to back the hell off of they're hitting a nerve.

The only people who will be childish enough to want to make fun of some innocuous messageboard post are going to be friends. People from work either wouldn;t know, wouldn;t care, or wouldn;t make an ass of themselves in publuic and bring it up. Friends on the other hand, yeah, they make fun of stupid shit you do. That's part of being a friend.

And, if you have a friend that's making fun of you to the point where it;s no longer funny, and you're an adult just be an adult and tell him to drop it. You're both grown-ups, you can handle situations like this. You either grow up and be sensitive to your friend's wishes, or you act like a prick and lose a friend. Either way it stops.

Quite simply: Nobody I know would give two shits beyond thinking it was funny/cool.

Like I said, if soomeone doesn't get it, they're not going to get playing wiht plastic spacemen either, so why the hell does it matter?

Maybe I'm just being insensitive. Obviously, Uber, you've been a social paraiha for some time...it must be terribly hard for you to live with the constant bullying from your fellows.
