the other day I'm in the car with my nephews, listening to my iPod. White & Nerdy starts to play, but when Weird Al starts singing, my oldest nephew expresses rather audible disappointment. He said he thought that it was the bumblebee song. When I questioned him, he said, "you know... bumblebee bumblebee bumble bumble bumble bee" (Imma be by Black Eyed Peas)

My girls still think Katy Perry was singing about kissing a squirrel.

I kissed a squirrel. I liked it. Felt so wrong, though.

I was playing "Whoomp! There it is!" in the car :roll: and my 8-year old thought they were saying "Whoomp! Bad ass!"
