Kevin,While it was great for them to write me back, I felt the need to respond:
I just received your email and wanted to respond to you as soon as I could. I wanted to let you know that it was not in fact your parody on Z100. I am the Executive Producer for the Elvis Duran Morning Show and I write the parodies for the show since 1998
We played my parody Butta Face. To this point I have not heard yours and I am sure it is funny but I didn't want you to be disappointed if you tuned in and heard my song. Butta Face is an obvious parody of this sone [sic] so it doesn't surprise me that more than one Comedy writer came up with it. I have also written Pimple Face to the original as well.
Again, I am sorry for any confusion.
Elvis Duran and the Morning Show
David,If Z100 wants a one-sided word battle that they know nothing about due to my lack of readership, then it is on! I'm coming after them with guns filled with written words. There is no end to what I can write. Pimple Face? Really? Oof. (That was just a small example of the assault.)
Thank you for getting back to me. It would have been really cool if it was mine but someone already broke the news to me on Facebook later in the day. Your email is pretty funny. Let's look at "Butta Face is an obvious parody of the song so it doesn't surprise me that more than one Comedy writer came up with it." Can't we give ourselves more credit than that? Maybe it's not that obvious. You have been trained too much to handle things with the legal implications in mind. Did you think I was going to seek legal council* over a song I put on youtube for free even if I thought you stole it? I guess that just makes me sad for the state of the world that you have to write like that. You probably don't even notice. Anyway, I really do appreciate you getting back to me. I think Butta Face is much better than Pimple Face (kinda makes me cringe). Take care and never steal one of my ideas again! Ever! My wife is a lawyer, more powerful than Jacoby, Meyers, and Roni Deutch combined. Tell Mr. Leonard I said hi.
Stay tuned, reader(s). It's gonna be a (metaphorical) blood bath.
* I should have had my wife spell check this first.
