Syria-sly speaking things are Syria-sly bad.
What's goin on in Syria?
Syria-sly speaking folks are Syria-sly mad.
Here's what's up in Syria.
Am I kidding, no, I am Syria-sly singing.
La la la la Syria.
Guess what else? I'll tell ya. Sit down for a moment.
OMG, it's Syria.Uh-uh-uh.
In 1971 the Assads came to power in the Ba'ath Party.
The Ba'ath Party, the Ba'ath Party,
like a British person saying the word "bath" with a stutter.
Then in 20-11, sheep go to hell and goats go to heaven,
by which we mean and uprising, The Arab Spring against The Assad Regime.
Who were currently in power in the Ba'ath not the shower.
And had started getting mean.
Was it religious? No, not really. The Assad regime is fairly moderate in that regard.
But now the rebels have started killing Christians.
Can you tell me why? Haters gotta hate! (It's a little more complicated than that.)
Syria-sly speaking, there's no laughter, there's no tickle.
Frowny face in Syria.
Syria-sly speaking, it's a dilly of a pickle.
Salty brine in Syria, uh uh uh.
Then a year ago, a year ago, Obama drew a line in the sand.
Was it a Thin Red Line? Nope, that's a movie.
But he did call it... a red line!
He said if the members of the Assad regime
used chemical weapons he'd get them in trouble
Jump straight into their Ba'ath party
Pull out the drain and start popping bubbles.
Then Kerry, that's John Kerry.
(whose campaign I worked on in 2004. I'm wearing the t-shirt. I think someday it could be collectable)
Said: I'm terribly sorry to trouble you, but the Assads are using CW.
Now Syria-sly speaking we're supposed to go to war
with the folks in Syria.
But Syria-sly speaking we don't wanna go to war
They're callin bluffs in Syria uh uh uh.
So now Obama's like, oh poop.
I said I'd go to war, now I have to go to war
Will the Russians help? Nyit! They say.
Neither will NATO nor the UK.
(Canada said they'd help, but it's like, oh, great, Canada. Thanks so much.)
So now Obama's sayin, "hey, you guys!. I've got the perfect compromise!
How bout a a tiny war. Just a tiny war.
Couple days of bombing, no more!
And if it works!
(... well, there's no way to really know if it worked or not, that's trying to prove a negative. It's impossible.)
And if it doesn't work,
(Al-Qaeda could get a footing in the Syria. Iran could continue to develop their nuclear weapons program.)
My oh me. Me my uh. That's pretty much the sitch in Syria.

The Wedding Bit
Scout Durwood's Two Minute Reel
Westside Laugh Party
"The girl can sing! Her performances are remarkable because she seems genuinely thrilled to be on stage, radiating sheer enthusiasm with every shimmy.”
“You’ve got good comedy. You’ve got a great Penelope Cruz impression and you’ve got a great set of tits.”
“her performance is funny and emotionally honest and she has stage presence to spare.”
"A dynamically talented woman."
“a world where sexy and funny collide. It’s quite rare for someone as beautiful as Lady Scoutington to develop an interesting personality – much less a funny one – under such a pretty face, simply because they don’t have to. Lucky for us, Scoutington is a different sort.”
Scout is a breath of fresh air on the comic scene...her presence and her sense of wit is to say the least... Extraordinary!!!
"New York City's newest queen of late night comedy!"
“Hot AND funny”
“With stage presence to spare she has any audience in the palm of her hand. Creative, charming and so versatile Scout does it all and will keep you laughing and in love the whole time.”
“[She] will dizzy you with a dizzying onslaught of dizzying eye and sound candy.”
“Scout Durwood is a charismatic performer with an attractive, smoky voice, and shines in this musical story of sex workers in New York on election night, 2008.”
"If we had a penny for every time Scout does a split, we'd have like 75 cents!"
