***
Funny at the time but won't remembered as a classic.
**
Used to think this was ok but now feel it's awful. Just stupid and moronic. UK#1 and Ireland#1.
*
Was funny about once. So stupid, lame and unfunny.
***
I don't hate it as much as everyone else. Ah nostalgia, you've foiled me again.
***
alright novelty song,still kinda funny lol but dumb :P
*
Booooorrriiinnng. We get it, you got high. Big deal, no need to write a 3 minute song for laughs about it!
*****
Can't believe so many people hate this. Love it, very funny.
**
I don't mind a good novelty song but this really outstayed it's welcome. Has not stood the test of time.
*
horrible and repetitive
****
Like most songs around this time nostalgia has made me enjoy it. Pretty funny song lol.
*
Really is one of the worst songs of all time. It's so easy to criticise, but apparently that's its charm. I don't care, this is crap.

Still funny after all these years!
*****
sad story, but really funny
*****
I have recently developed a strange liking for this.
*
Crap. Like it no better many years later. Like witnessing a slow-motion train wreck.
*
Liked it at the time, but now it is just annoying.
**
It's funny for a very short period of time...
*
Can't get high to this because it is so irritating.
*
Absolutely atrocious! Nothing amusing it all, just plain stupid and moronic.

I don't find this song funny at all, with the song having a quite depressing story.

However, for some inexplicable reason, I've always found this song catchy since I first heard it on a So Fresh CD I brought at the time. My views haven't really changed since I first listened to it all of those years ago.
**
From what I remember this was bad and unfunny.
