VASL ls Broken

Lyrics: Dennis Donovan
Performed by: Corporal Punishment

My dice roll average is 10.7
900 times those dice did I those cast.
Got 90 boxcars and zero snake eyes. is random, my %$#! 

What are the real odds of someone rolling,
five 12's in a row? Here are the stats.
1 in 6 million if I rolled like that.
In a casino they'd beat me with bats! 

VASL is broken, like an old Yugo
Dice Bot is kaput, what do we do?
It's like a Sasquatch only I've seen it.
But we all deep down know that it's true.

  1. Wow! Knocked it out of the park on the song! If I did not know better I'd say that was Cat Stevens himself singing. Corporal Punishment should be given a field promotion to Sergeant Singer or something.

  2. Thanks, Dennis. Glad you liked it. Hope you don't mind that we massaged your excellent lyrics a very wee bit to lay out better for Jeff. Minor changes, we think.

  3. Not a problem at all with the changes. I am glad you did! Am lookingfowardto the next Corporal Punishment/2 HS Singers offering.....

  4. OK, I posted my comment on the wrong episode so let me repeat it here, great song!

  5. Am surprised you have not played ASL Scenario 3000 which uses the board Avalon Hill's Gettyburg Game.
