Inspired lyrically by Jeanne's great response to meat causing cancer, and musically by John Fitzpatrick's recent run of great rock/blues jingles. (Extended intro edition.)

You say red meat causes cancer
Well, then I guess "I've had a good life!"
You say red meat is gonna kill me
Then by cheeseburger I shall die
Cause if it's death or root vegetables julienne
Then bury me with extra sausage on the side

So you say processed meats will kill you
Well guess what - so does EVERYTHING ELSE, my friend
So you can keep your kale and tofu
I'm gonna eat and enjoy til the non-bitter end
Gonna suck the meat juice out this biscuit
And you'll pry this warm steak from my cold dead hands

And if the Ham Reaper keeps me from waking
In lieu of flowers, just send bacon

Parody of "Red House" acoustic version, by Jimi Hendrix.

Ham Reaper. That line still has me grinning like Wilbon at a shoe store.

SO glad this aired! They don't play this genre enough on the show but this one broke through. It's just so darn good.

Maybe the only thing better than hearing TK chuckle-laugh to a tune is to hear Liz Clarke giggle-laugh - and you got both! Extra rashers of bacon for you, JF!

Holy cow! So great Jason. Everything, the playing, the vocal, sausage on the side, ham reaper (!) and the bacon closer - BAM!

I think Ron Moretti did an original about some of the regular jinglers a while back, and feel like there's at least 1 or 2 more I'm forgetting. Jerry would know I bet.

honestly, this song is your own. you can put Jimi up there but this is a simple 1-4-5 about a news story/philosophy. nothing TK or cover about it, really...except for Jeannie's line. have we had a fully original jingle yet that doesn't owe allegiance to anyone else?
