I'm not sure this qualifies since I wrote it yesterday and therefore it wasn't written within the challenge period. But I wanted to share anyway.

Title: The McKay-Do
Author: Caro Dee
Format: Filk
Hatstand Archive: yes
Circuit Archive: yes
Pros-Lib: yes
Slash/Gen: Tiniest hint of slash.
Summary: Obviously, the episode Heroes needed to be filked. Yes, it did.
Notes: Inspired by the Pun Title challenge on the_safehouse, this is a filk using Three Little Maids From School Are We from The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan.
Disclaimer: I don't own Bodie, Doyle, Cowley, McKay or The Mikado.


The McKay-do

THE THREE.
Three CI5 agents are we.
Deadlier men you ne'er did see,
Following orders from Cowley.
Three CI5 agents!

TOM-TOM.
Loads of targets for my shotgun. (Chuckle)

PEEP-BODIE.
Walking's not safe, so I'd rather run! (Chuckle)

PRETTY-RAY.
I'll go first; you just watch my bum! (Chuckle)

THE THREE.
Three CI5 agents!

THE THREE.
Three secret agents legendary,
Trained to keep Joe Public and Merry
Old England rose and lavendery!
Three CI5 agents!
Three CI5 agents!

TOM-TOM.
One agent works on his own, Tom-Tom--

PEEP-BODIE.
Rant and rave while the RT's still on!

PRETTY-RAY.
Cowley's orders are to keep him calm!

THE THREE.
Three CI5 agents!
Three CI5 agents!

TOM-TOM
From three crack agents take one away.

PEEP-BODIE.
Two crack agents still in the fray--

PRETTY-RAY.
We'll do what it takes to save the day!

THE THREE.
Three CI5 agents!
Three CI5 agents!

THE THREE.
Three agents, all extraordinary,
One gunned down in a burst of glory!
He saved us and now we're sorry!
Three CI5 agents!
Three CI5 agents!

The Mikado is on at the theatre where I work in a couple of weeks.

I'll be chuckling every time they sing this now!

Thanks! *g* I was lucky this worked out well. Just fiddling with McKay's name and then, "McKay-do? Why does that sound familiar? Oh. Heh."

Your monkeys icon needs no excuse! Giggling Bodie is always in perfect taste. Actually, all your icons lately have been perfect. The sour lemon look was especially amusing.

Very cute .... and have you ever read H.M.S. CI5, by Fanny Adams? Along the same lines - you might get a kick out of it!

Hee! I am a mere babe compared to her awesomeness -- ten songs and an actual CI5 plot! I was sweating a bit just doing the one song. Thanks for the link, Justacat. It was great.
