#4 “Ted, Admit”?

Oh wait, that’s a song about a different killer named Ted.

How about:

“Dude, Where’s My Car --- Oh Yeah, and That Chick That Was In It?”

#7 No autopsy because Miss Kopechne might have had something other than sea water in her mouth (thinking blue dress here)? Yes, that might cause a distraction to driving with the unfortunate result of veering off a bridge.

#10 Enchanted by visions of Camelot,
Maid Mary Jo yields to her Lancelot.
Their unbridled idyll
Would win her no title,
But Teddy was knighted Sir Swamelot!

#11 Diving many moon sdown into the reject pile...

Ted Kennedy often regaled 'em,
"That intern was smokin' in Salem!
She stifled a cough...
And about bit it off...
Said she never could stand to inhale 'em."

#14 No autopsy? Ponder the most obvious reason? OK, dunno if we're on the same track but I'll make a guess. I always figured he was just drunk and foolin' around in the Kennedy family tradition and didn't report it until he could sober up but, no autopsy? Was she pregnant?

#15 No, he was just a fat, drunken slob from an entitled family who was confronted with fear and acted like a coward.

#17 No autopsy?
Why didn't the family pay for one?

#19 There once was a Senator from Mass
Who craved a strange piece of ass
He lucked out and found it
He screwed up and drown it
And now his future is passed

#20 Why didn't the family pay for one?

I believe her family received a big chunk of cashy compensation.

As for #8 If he was driving a Volkswagen he would have President.
scroll down
I think I'm having a flashback

#24 There once was man from Nantucket
With a dick so small she couldn't suck it
Ted didn't get his blow
So off the bridge went Mary Jo
And all the senator said was Phuck it

#25 Wait for the movie to come out and somewhere in the world will be an intense anti-American riot. The leading D's of the day will blame the riot on extremely upset Oldsmobile loyalists......
