Thought of the Day – 10/17/2012

Today’s thought is technically a question, as well as a special request* from Mrs. FeitCanWrite:

*Yes, I do take requests for topics & posts.  Especially if you provide payment and/or other compensation.

Mrs. FeitCanWrite was having a less than stellar day at the office.  She headed out for lunch to refresh, unwind, and escape for a while.  And when she started the vehicle, the following song was just coming on the radio:

So the question she raises (or you can take it as a dare or a Barney Stinson-esque challenge if you prefer) is this:

Is it humanly possible to listen to MC Hammer’s classic “2 Legit 2 Quit” without doing one or more of the following:

  • Singing along.
  • Doing your best white-person imitation of Hammer’s dancing.
  • Tapping your feet.
  • Doing the signature hand gestures.

If you can resist the urge to do any of those, I hope you can at least muster a smile (unless, of course, you are dead inside).

I know when I played the song today, I had a big smile – just as I will every time I hear this song from now on.  Because if a cheesy, dated rap song from the 90s can make my lovely wife smile during a rough day, that means the world to me.

Think back to the end of the last century – every commercial break was filled with ads for some dial-around service (like 10-10-321 or 10-10-220) touting their super low rates for long distance calling.  These ads starred a veritable who’s who of 1990s B-level talent:  John Lithgow, Dennis Miller, Tony Danza, Reginald VelJohnson, and the two mega stars below:
