When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

Middle English in the house, yo

Inspired by a recent news story on "Lit Hop," in which overeducated rappers retell the classics of literature on stage in the hip-hop vernacular, Carrie rolls up her sleeves and kicks it old-school... really old school:
Yo, in April when the fallin' rain
Comes down through the dirt and hits the roots again
The spring, it's the thing that makes 'em sing and have a fling
The breeze, or what they used to call the zephyr,
Blows away the clouds and freshens up the weather...
Just go read the whole thing.

I think she needs to take her act on the road.
