For those of you not "in the know", there's a song popular on the radio right now called "Thrift Shop" about buying all one's clothes at a thrift store to be unique and save money. It's a neat little song, even if it does have some coarse language. I've linked a clean version below.
Bored one fine evening, I decided to write a parody about thrifting board games. Anybody who follows the weekly thrift lists will hopefully chuckle internally once or twice. Enjoy. I'll Geeklist this for kicks and post a comment at the bottom with the whole lyrics so you can follow along easier.
Nah, walk into my home at night, "Honey, I got a big haul!" I'm so pumped about my Khet from the thrift shop, Hamsters gettin’ primed, laser’s gettin’ funny But my wife like, “You keep spendin’ all our money!”
Talisman, Castle Keep, all of ‘em are new in shrink, Parts are all mint, Yahtzee Junior dice, indented green Dune for a dollar shrinked, hidden in the magic flea, Prolly shoulda passed up Blokus, smells like some moldy feet
But hey, it was ninety-nine cents! (Bag it) Checkin' it, shelvin' it, 'bout to go and post some part requests, Passin' up on those Monopoly’s someone else's been eyeballin’ But Rio Grande? Thriftin’ it man!
I am wheelin' and dealin' and Savin' my money on a Wits & Wagers, That's a bargain, Dom! I'ma snag yo pop’s Acquire, I'ma snag yo pop’s Acquire No for real - ask your grandpa - can I have his Sid Sacksons? (Can’t Stop)
What you know about thriftin’ HeroScape expansions? You know how to look for the sparkle hexes? I'm diggin, I'm diggin’, I'm ripping right through that Scotch tape Box lid’s trashed, but got another in my parts shed
Kickstarter edition, let's do some simple addition Eighty dollars for a board game - that's just the cult of the new I call that getting swindled for some bits I call that over-paying for the Hotness That’s a lot of dough
