Arlington: The Rap

Fight for Old DC!

Bonus! Golf course turtle.


DO NOT advise me to use a Neti Pot. There’s almost no situation I can imagine where I would use a Neti Pot, and not just because it’s the sort of thing you can guarantee will show up on BoingBoing: “Incredibly Cool Steampunk Neti Pot.”

P.S. Righteous Leftous Bubba has submitted an entry to The Journal of LOL Althouse poetry - own goal category, in the comments.

UPDATE: This blog is currently the number 3 search result for The Journal of LOL Althouse Poetry. Proud to Announce, and such as.

I think he's scared the Neti pot would wash his peabrain out of his ear.

And Satan would possess his soul, or something.

Besides, they don't sell 'em at Target.

Too late.

The nerd rap thing has been overdone, but that was very clever and funny. It helps that I lived in Fairfax County, VA.

I grew up in D.C. myself, Brando. By the way, my parents met at Marquette.

I cannot fathom the mind of the turtle.

I cannot fathom the mind of the bat.
Further inquiry reveals that the bat could not fathom the mind of Thomas Nagel either.

Hey, I totally "get it".

No, I do. I'd explain it to you, but you obviously don't have what it takes to "get it".

But me? I get it. That's what I do...

Hey, no quoting my Lileks! I was going to use that!

I see you're cleverly avoiding the bait in the post above, fish.

P.S. Mend D., ameblay the ombiezay. Everyone's doing it.

The video fits Yuppie Arlington (and I might add, even Yuppie Montgomery) to a T. I love all the people in the comments arguing about the Green Line, both sides completely missing the rapper's point (that he was dissing the people who avoid the Green Line).

Mandos said...

There was one comment way down about not taking the green line because they value their life and belongings or something. The north half of the Green Line is well down the gentrification curve, at least...

Back when I was going to H.S., Mandos, we didn't have a subway. (Not that I'm trying to encourage any decrepit remarks, ahem.)

I'd take a different succession of Metrobuses to school, and a different set home. Just because I could (and it took forever, anyways).
