This morning, Shog and I discovered that we learnt different versions of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and ended up settling our disagreement about whose version of the hymn was better by revising its lyrics along (sacrilegiously) Lovecraftian lines. Behold!



"He'll Have the Whole World in His Claws"

Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin', yes he is,
Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin', yes he is,
Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin', yes he is,
Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin' soon!

He'll have the whole world in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws!

He'll have the itty bitty cultists in his claws,
He'll have the itty bitty cultists in his claws,
He'll have the itty bitty cultists in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws!

He'll have a-you and me, brother, in his claws,
He'll have a-you and me, brother, in his claws,
He'll have a-you and me, brother, in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws!

He'll have a-you and me, sister, in his claws,
He'll have a-you and me, sister, in his claws,
He'll have a-you and me, sister, in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws!

Better to submit and be eaten first,
Better to submit and be eaten first,
Better to submit and be eaten first,
Better to be eaten first!

Tell you what happens if ya ain't eaten first,
Tell you what happens if ya ain't eaten first,
Tell you what happens if ya ain't eaten first,
Tell you what happens, oh . . .

A rippin' and a gnashin', flee the screams!
A rippin' and a gnashin', flee the screams!
A rippin' and a gnashin', flee the screams!
Oh, you're gonna try to flee the screams!

He'll have the whole world in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws,
He'll have the whole world in his claws!

Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin', yes he is,
Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin', yes he is,
Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin', yes he is,
Great Ol' Cthulhu's risin' soon!

My icon is not as relevant to this post as I might wish. *snorts*

And how are all of you?

P.S. Ever wanted to know how to pronounce "ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"? Wonder no longer!



P.P.S. Under the cut, have a vid discussing how to pronounce "Cthulhu" as H. P. Lovecraft intended.





Fascinating vid, that, but I'm going to continue to follow the long-accepted human pronunciation of "K-thoo-loo" (and not wrinkle my nose at "K-too-loo").

We had fun this morning. We're taking a break from cleaning, now (while I'm trying to figure out dinner). I hope that you're well!

All is well. Had a good work week ... 4 days out of a possible 5 as I chose to take a day off. Dinner was home made chocolate cake. Oh, and I may have a bowl of ham and potato soup shortly. :)

I've been craving chocolate cake—so jealous! The soup sounds lovely, too.

Yay, working when you want!

Why can't you have chocolate cake? Carob Cake is a good substitute. I made my mother a Carob Cake (she can't have chocolate because of her kidney number.) She cried happy tears, because it tasted so much like chocolate.

I can eat chocolate; I just shouldn't be eating all the sugar that traditionally comes with it. :P

Carob is a great alternative to chocolate, but only chocolate is chocolate. *snorts*

Now I feel like baking, sugar be damned. *ponders brownies*

The cake is pretty good. I made a chocolate ganache to frost it with and a strawberry sauce, which ended up a bit blah. Next time, I should add a bit of lemon juice to it.

After many dry weeks/months, I hate turning down a job but my body just can't make it 5 days out of 5. As it is, I use my cane daily.

It's good that you can make your schedule as easily as a cake. I feel strongly that there is cake in my future after all this discussion of it. :P

I have found a Cthulhu carol playlist to listen to when Christmas comes around. XD

Is it sacrilege? Some would say yes, I personally say it is hilarious. Can't say it's better or worse as I have not heard it. I know the original is like a brain worm. It burrows in through the ear and take over your whole brain!

Okay, time to go listen to Death to the World.

I do, too! :D

Yes, the burrowing—that's why Shog and I were trying to agree to one version. There are so many versions of that song!

An oldie but a goodie!
