Good one, Josh.

Joshua at Psallite Sapienter is currently as sick as I am, but he isn't that sick that he has lost his sense of humour. All WYD returning pilgrims will appreciate the humour of this spoof which he wrote on the WYD Guy Sebastian Theme Song, called "Receive your Lunch":

Ev’ry person ev’ry time
Come together, in groups of six:
In this lunchbox you delight,
Filled with tasty, tho’ curious choices!

I love tuna! And cold baked beans!
Receive your lunch, from all the volunteers!
I love tim-tams! And wagonwheels!
Receive them now, to be your lunch for World Youth Day!

Packed bread rolls and lamingtons;
Packs of Snow-White sugary cupcakes;
Cadbury chocolate bars supplied;
And cans of carbonated drinks.

I love tuna! And cold baked beans!
Receive them now, from all the volunteers!
I love tim-tams! And wagonwheels!
Receive them now, to be your lunch for World Youth Day!

Benedict we give you thanks,
Uncle George, we give you thanks,
Anthony, we give you thanks,
Volunteers, we give you thanks,

Uncle George, we give you thanks,
Anthony, we give you thanks,
O but while we give you thanks,
What on earth were you thinking of?

I love tuna! And cold baked beans!
Receive them now, from all the volunteers!
I love tim-tams! And wagonwheels!
Receive them now, to be your lunch for World Youth Day!
It's already a hit with my kids who have learnt it off by heart...

Oh David,

I'm touched that you and the kiddies are singing my rough 'n' ready ballad of the lunchbox!

No wonder hits on my blog have gone through the roof...

BTW, I'm curious as to what the evening meals were like - I managed to miss all of them (except for the Vigil prepacked goodies).

And I've taken to those St Dalfours tinned meals - they're going to be coming to work with me as my lunch...
