Dictionaraoke; (n.)
Dictionary + Karaoke = Pure Evil

Dictionaraoke (dictionaraoke.com) is the absolutely appalling, yet somehow morbidly appealing art of pasting online dictionary sample voices over midi renditions (or in the case of the upscale dictionaraoke submissions, instrumental cover versions or karaoke tracks) of a song to replace the sung lyrics with jarring, robotic, and all-around awful vocals.

Some particularly good/bad examples include Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" (particularly for the complicated "Scaramouche, Scaramouche, can you do the fandango" section), The Clash's "Rock the Casbah" ("Says, it's not, kosher!"), and ABBA's "Waterloo" (for sheer camp value).

I wonder if they knew something like this was going to happen, in the infancy of the internet.
