OK, so this is something my brother came up with & thought it was pretty cool. Everyone remembers the song "Favorite Things" from the Sound of Music, right? No? OK, well here's a link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irhroQ14Ufo

The challenge is this: you create your own verse for the song, making sure that it's rhyming couplets & using the same beat. Here's my brothers version, to give you guys an idea of what you're aiming for:

Matrix and Watchmen and Ocean's Eleven,
Master of Puppets and Stairway to Heaven,
Orson Scott Card and The Lord of the Rings,
these are a few of my favorite things!

A nurse's song:

Gangrene and swine flu and tuberculosis
Triplets and fat guys with bad halitosis
Tying up body parts just using strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Punches in bunches and Ground & Pound stoppage,
Doctor-forced endings because of blood lossage.
Triangle chokes that restrict your breathing,
These are a few of my favorite things!

OK, I've seen people put out a verse at a time. Lemme see y'all step up & do a whole song:

Punches in bunches and Ground & Pound stoppage,
Doctor-forced endings because of blood lossage.
Triangle chokes that restrict your breathing,
These are a few of my favorite things!

Elbows & leg kicks and crisply thrown left hooks,
My face ain't as bad as the other guy looks.
Drunk agnry fans throwing beers while booing,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Ring Girl in spandex holds cards over her head,
Champ keep on fighting when others would be dead.
Give him the belt as fans' applause rings,
These are a few of my favorite things

Matt Serra bites:
Makes my ears sting,
But Hughes whupped him bad.
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so sad!!!!

When the bills come
And he freaks out
And he's feeling maaaad
I simply remind him what I did last night...
And then I don't feel soooooo bad!

Black and blue necklaces and gloves for boxing,
Tractors and hay and horses for foxhunting,
Just add some shoes, books, stars and some spring,
These are a few of my favorite things
