Hmmm... I may be going mad


So I was looking at head58's post about what tracks Rock Band will have and then wizardru's post about what the drum kit will be like and I ended up with the distinctive drum solo to Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies going through my head. No, it won't be on Rock Band (so far), but it was on Guitar Hero II.
So far, no big deal, not going insane, just nerdy.
Then my brain got to the part of the song where it goes:
I was sitting in my room, and I was like staring at the walls thinking about
everything but then again I was thinking about nothing, and then my mom came
in and I didn't notice she was there and she calls my name and I didn't hear
her and then she started screaming:
- Mike, Mike!
And I go:
- What, what's the matter?
She goes:
- What's the matter with you?
I say:
- Nothing mom.
She goes:
- Don't tell me nothing, you're on drugs!
I go:
- No mom, I'm not on drugs, I'm ok, I'm just thinking, you know, why don't
you get me a Pepsi?
She goes:
- No, you're on drugs, you're crazy, normal people won't be acting that way!
I go:
- Mom, I'm all right, I'm just thinking, you know, so why don't you, like
give me a Pepsi?
And she goes:
- No, you're crazy!
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me,
just one Pepsi.

The problem here is that when I got to the point of "She started screaming 'Mike! Mike!'" All I could think was "He started screaming 'Bert! Bert! Do you know me, Bert!'", which is of course from It's A Wonderful Life, but what with all the talk about Bert & Ernie lately and if various people's personality types are Bert-like or Ernie like, that's what I started thinking of next.

Before I knew it, I was starting to rewrite Institutionalized so it was a song between Bert & Ernie with Bert taking the role of the parents and Ernie being the kid. Picture the video, but with Ernie as the lead singer! That's what's been going through my head. And it is in ernie's voice too! Even better, change "Pepsi" to "Cookie".

Anyway, it's been amusing me. (and I'll probably get hit by a bus anyway...)
