You all know that I read Jenny, the Bloggess way too much. If we were guys, I'd totally have a man crush on her (or him, since we'd be guys and all).
The very first post I ever read of Jenny's was about Timbaland's song "The Way I Are". My daughter just recently bought this song, so I obsessed over the wrong lyrics to it, while she yelled at me over and over again that these were not what they were actually saying.
So, being a good mother of a teenager, I taught all of her friends the wrong lyrics to this song.
So taking a song that was fairly benign, I have taught a bunch of ninth and tenth graders to sing it the Jenny way. Turning it from this:
"Baby, it's alright now you don't have to flaunt for me.
If we go and touch, you can still touch my love, it's free"
"Baby, it's alright now you don't have to floss for me.
If we go there you can still touch my nuts for free."
And people STILL send their kids to my house to stay.
My husband listened to this song and in the second verse Timbaland says "I ain't got no Visa".
Dylan says: "But isn't he coming here?" (He is, he'll be at the Coke Live Music Festival in Krakow).
I said: "Yes."
Dylan: "Then he HAS to have a visa." Hysterical laughter ensued.
This is embassy humor, y'all. (Mine was funnier...even if it was stolen from someone else.)
The things we leave behind.
