Mother Seeks Emergency Surgery to Remove VBS Songs Lodged in Her Brain

ST ALBANS, WV—Local mom Stephanie Orchard was a happy mother of three.

That is, until she took her kids to Riverside Lutheran Church’s vacation Bible school this year.

Now, she has nearly a dozen incredibly catchy, extremely repetitive VBS songs permanently lodged in her brain. Medical experts believe the songs became stuck as her kids sang the songs over and over and she was forced to listen to the CD the church handed out. Finally, she attended the VBS’s exciting finale performance, where all the songs were sung by the kids along with the hand motions, and she was “a goner” after that.

“Do you guys do lobotomies?” she asked the doctor she showed up at the ER for emergency surgery. The lines in her face, the bags around her eyes, and the desperation in her voice made it clear that she had a severe case of VBS song infection, a common but potentially annoying medical condition.

Eventually, the doctor was able to get the songs out with a prescription of heavy doses of Toto’s “Africa.” The unpleasant side effect, however, is that now she has “Africa” lodged in her brain.

Remember, if a VBS song is stuck in your head for longer than 4-6 hours, seek medical help immediately.

    I still remember songs I taught to my VBS students 30 years ago. VBS is the earworm gift that keeps on giving.
