'Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe' Is an Awesome Response to 'Accidental Racist'

Brad Paisley's "Accidental Racist" isn't all bad. As Stephen Colbert pointed out on last night's Colbert Report, it did indeed succeed in bringing people of different races together: "This song has united all Americans — not just Black and White, but Latino, Asian, Muslim, Pacific Islander, Inuit — all of us to join our voices as one and declare 'this song sucks.'"

And, look, if it wasn't for Paisley's original, we'd never get Colbert's own version (featuring Alan Cumming!) titled "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe." God bless Brad Paisley and God bless the USA.

OMG YOU GUYS, I was looking through some of Brad Paisley's other lyrics and they are just awful. Like kind of hilariously bad, like who gave this guy a record deal? Basically he sounds like a Baby Boomer who's just read about this series of tubes called the internets and "metrosexuals". TO WIT:

From "Online":
It turns girls on that I'm mysterious
I tell 'em I don't want nothing serious
'cause even on a slow day I can have a three way
Chat with two women at one time

I'm so much cooler online

From :I'm Still A Guy": These days there's dudes getting facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tacklebox
