Oddbit, the Original Material Girl


Oddbit has more in common with Madonna than just materialism!

ElfQuest fan Dion Tzavaras shared this great comparison between Oddbit and Madonna in the ElfQuest Facebook Fan Group, and it was too good not to share here.

Dion said:

“I was SO reminded of ‘Material Girl’ when I reread the Original Quest recently and reached this scene from the final issue in particular, AND Madonna’s cone bra is so similar to Oddbit’s, that I couldn’t resist.”

Jean Paul Gaultier designed the costumes for Madonna’s Blond Ambition Tour, which featured the now-iconic cone bra, but that wasn’t until 1990. Our Oddbit was sporting that awesome metal version all the way back in 1984! 

Not satisfied with the image comparison above alone, Dion went ahead and rewrote the lyrics to Madge’s hit “Material Girl” as if they were sung by our favorite troll queen, and the results are awesome. Get ready to have this stuck in your head for the rest of the day.

PRACTICAL GIRL
(based on Material Girl by Madonna)
Lyrics by… uhh… Oddbit!
***

Some trolls grab me, some trolls hug me
I think they’re O.K.
If they don’t give me lots of jewelry
I just walk away
Picky begs, then Picky pleads
But he can’t see the light, (that’s right!)
‘Cause the troll with the cold hard gold
Is always Mister Right, ’cause we are
Chorus:
Living in a very practical world
And I am a very practical girl
You know that we are living in a very practical world
And I am a very practical girl
Some trolls dig, some trolls gold mine
And that’s all right with me
If they can’t raise my bundle then I
Have to let them be
Greymung tries and Picknose lies but
I don’t let them stay (No way!)
Only trolls who save their treasure
Make my cave’s doorway, ’cause we are
(chorus)
Living in a very practical world [practical]
Living in a very practical world
(repeat)
Kings may come and kings may go
And that’s all right you see
Experience will make me Queen, even
Guttlekraw is after me, ’cause everybody’s
(chorus)
A practical, a practical, a practical, a practical world
Living in a very practical world [practical]
Living in a very practical world
(repeat and fade)
