Lions and Kitty Cats! ComposerDad vs. Bible Podcast Ep.6 – Trip to the Zoo


Compose a catchy tune about lions and kitty cats? No problem. Right after this incredible rescue. Today is Saturday, a day of family togetherness.
ProfessorMom, BuilderBoy, SquishyBaby, and I are in our 2007 Toyota Prius on our way to the zoo in Connecticut.
We heard they have lions and we are very excited. We have been driving for two hours
and SquishyBaby does not want to be in his car seat.
BuilderBoy asks SquishyBaby if he’s had his nap.
“Did you have a nap, brother?” “No” says SquishyBaby
We are sad that SquishyBaby is sad, but we are happy he can say a few words now. We arrive at the zoo. We quickly put
SquishyBaby into a trail-tested front-pack and we all shush him to sleep. Suddenly a man falls into the lion enclosure!
BuilderBoy quickly transforms into a forklift and rescues him.
“Phew, that was a close one.” ProfessorMom and I are so busy
tending to the baby that we don’t even notice the older child’s incredible rescue. Suddenly ProfessorMom sees a lady
studying monkeys. “Excuse me. Why are you studying those monkeys?”
“I am doing PhD research on these monkeys.” “I am also pursuing my PhD, focusing
on Shakespeare.” “Have you heard of “The infinite money
theorem”? “Go on.”
“If you put 100 monkeys with typewriters in a room long enough,
eventually you’ll get Hamlet.” “Yes, but which quarto?!” Okay, alright. I have a question.
Yes, Grandma? What was that all about? What’s a quarto?
Ah, I’m so glad you asked… It’s really quite interesting… When you think about Shakespeare you probably think we have this play as Shakespeare wrote it. That’s not true really. What we have are versions of the play published at later times and dates. With Hamlet we have three versions. We have the folio and then we have quartos. One of those quartos is not as good. It’s the BAD quarto. And the quarto itself is named because it was folded into quarters. Whereas the folio was larger. Quartos! That’s fascinating! Yes, you should be on my podblast! Back to the show! We finally arrive at the Lion enclosure but, to our surprise, there are no lions in there,
instead it’s full of kitty cars. But why?
Before we can figure it out, we see the trees swaying from a sudden
rush of wind. Guess what else we see?
Bible, with another intense compositional challenge for me, ComposerDad. “Hello Bible, we meet again.”
“Hello ComposerDad, I see you are looking at the lion enclosure.”
“Yes, we thought there would be lions in there, but they are really
kitty cats.” “This reminds me of when Daniel
was told he must pray to the king rather than to God. He refused
and was thrown into a den of lions. In the morning the king came
and found Daniel alive. God shut the mouths of the lions, and
they were more like kitty cats than lions. I want you to write a
concise song that about this moment.” I knew Bible was close when I felt
that intense rush of wind. “No Problem, Bible,” I say,
“but Bible was already gone.” Seeing no lions, we decide to go home.
Suddenly we bump into the Phd Monkey Lady again.
“I beg your pardon, do you know where the lions went?” “Did you not see the incredible rescue earlier?”
“No.” “A superhero forklift swooped down and
rescued a man from the lions. For safety reasons, the staff then removed the lions
and replaced them with kitty cats. No one was harmed.”
“What an incredible rescue. Someday I hope to meet that superhero forklift.” We drive home listening to our
favorite family podcasts, Eleanor Amplified, My Podcast Has
Fleas, and of course ComposerDad vs. Bible. We are listening to this
episode right now. Hello us. When we get home I use my
advanced computer music skills to craft a concise song in response
to Daniel and the Lions Den, executing yet another intense
compositional challenge from Bible. Hit it! I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats They told me there’d be lions
But they were really kitty cats I’ve been saved again Wait, wait, that’s it? That’s the whole
song? Yes.
I’m pretty sure that’s doesn’t fulfill the compositional challenge.
Well, Bible said to make it concise. Yeah, but that’s really short.
Do you want me to play it again. Not really– I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats They told me there’d be lions
But they were really kitty cats I’ve been saved again Yeah, it’s getting less good the more I
hear it. If this were my podblast–you know, Grandma’s Podblast, the podblast I host–
I would demand to hear more. At least a verse. You hardly captured the rest of the story,
let me speak the truth in love, it’s about faithfulness, God’s protection,
not just cats. Ok, here. Well, I’ve been working on
some other verses. I’ll try something. Would you like to hear that. um, sure. I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats They told me there’d be lions
But they were really kitty cats I’ve been saved again They told me to pray to a guy
I don’t pray to guys I only pray to God
he’s the only one. So they grabbed me threw me into this big
pit I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats I thought there would be lions
But they turned into kitty cats They told me there’d be lions
But they were really kitty cats I’ve been saved again In the morning the guy came around
And he looked in the ground And he saw that I was standing there
He said, “I guess your God must be the real God.” Cuz I thought there would be Rar
But there was really meow meow I’ve been saved again I thought there would be lions but they were really kitty cats I’ve been saved again. I see why you made it short It’s kind of garbage-y, and long. Is anyone even listening at this point, to the podblast? Let’s wrap it up! ComposerDad vs. Bible podblast, this was that.
