"Hold the pickle!" , the hammersickle restaurant song with apologies to Arlo Guthrie, by Andrew Taylor, March 24, 2010
The Hammersickle Song
with apologies to Arlo Guthrie
I don't want a pickle
Just really got to ditch my ole hammernd... sickle!
And I don't want a hammer
'Cause I'm gonna tail behind president obammer
And I don't want to die
just on the gogo for a logo, the old college-try!...

The foregoing revised song lyric was inspired by these words of Roberta Wood who said in her presentation to the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party in the United States:
"We love our history but there’s no point in being a cult about it. For example, do we need a hammer and sickle? A sickle was a common agricultural tool of European peasants, but that symbol doesn’t mean anything to Americans – we only see a sickle if someone dresses up as the Grim Reaper for Halloween. Yes, we need a new 21st century logo that evokes an image of the unity that WE are building."
