"Stand and Deliver!"

What if the parody of a song is better than the song it emulates?  Like this one:

I don’t know who the intended audience of ‘Horrible Histories’ are; are they old enough to have even heard of Adam and the Ants?  What happened to Adam Ant, anyway?  Last time I remember seeing him, he was shilling Zima and Honda scooters.

Raise your hand if you thought ‘Adam Ant’ was a reference to the metal that Drow swords were made from rather than a synonym for ‘determined.’

    Horrible Histories is ostensibly aimed at children although there are plenty of jokes in there for the adults too. In fact, last year the programme got moved from the kids' TV part of the schedules to a more prime time slot.
