The results on the Silly Party elections:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Election_Night_Special
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:25am Dave B:

In the 1981 Crosby by-election, candidate John Desmond Dougrez-Lewis, a 22-year-old student from Hayes in Greater London, changed his name by deed poll to Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lim-bus-stop-F'tang-F'tang-Olé-Biscuitbarrel. He received 223 votes and finished in fifth out of nine candidates, although the Returning Officer simply referred to him as "Tarquin Barrel". He later participated the Official Monster Raving Loony Party, which has some conceptual similarities with the Silly Party mentioned in the sketch.

holy crap is this horrible!

well played Meghan!
Avatar Thu. 10/25/12 7:50am meghan:

It's this album that people would write lyrics and send them in and the company would make the music for it. It's awful and hilarious at the same time
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:51am Elwyn:

I would love to hear a compilation of awful love songs made by that company.
Avatar Thu. 10/25/12 7:52am meghan:

The Jimmy Carter track > "Nixon Now" track
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:59am Elwyn:

@fred: it's so bad, it's good.
Yeah, Meghan's right about TV advertising these days. It's all about scare campaigns. This is kind of catchy even if the lyricists couldn't think of much else to say except "Nixon Now".
  Thu. 10/25/12 8:05am Dave B:

Elwyn - you'll have to listen to the Kennedy spot that opened the second set.

The chorus will be in your head for days

A woman applying for a job in a California lemon grove seemed to be over-qualified for the job. The foreman glowered at her. "Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"
