Woody Would Probably Have Approved, But That’s Just Tough

If you haven’t seen the Kerry/Bush “This Land is Your Land” parody yet, go ask a co-worker to show it to you. The online animated creation features the two presidential candidates in S&M gear and dunce caps, singing alternate lyrics to Woody Guthrie’s famous tune. The trouble is, someone owns that tune, and apparently, that someone doesn’t have Guthrie’s devotion to free expression. “About a week ago, the [creators of the parody] were served with a cease-and-desist order on behalf of Ludlow Music, demanding they remove This Land from their website.”
