A Licky Boom-Boom Down

Most people chuckle when they even think about Snow's 1993 smash hit "Informer." Me? I just think about how impressive that dude is. I'm not kidding. Sure, the man born Darrin O'Brien is completely ridiculous--as evidenced by the title of his second album, "Murder Love," or the fact that he actually has a greatest hits album--but that doesn't mean he's untalented. Just think for one second...how many people in the history of the world have ever been able to speak (sing? rap?) as quickly as my man Snow was able to? Other than the Micro Machines Guy and Young MC (examples later), I can't think of any. Watch Snow's brilliance one more time and I bet you change your mind:

See, I told you...the annoying bastard is talented.

Now take a look at his competition. Up first is the Micro Machines Guy, who was played by some fast-talking dickhead named John Moschitta, Jr. (Note: You may recall this guy playing Mr. Testaverde in an episode of Saved by the Bell)

Question: Do you think the Micro Machines Guy had groupies?

Answer: Obviously.

If you were born before 1983, video No. 3 needs no introduction. If you were born after 1983, go play in traffic.

This post made me happy. How about you?

(Thursday plan: Wake up early, eat Adderall, write about Ohio State football, UC basketball, the NBA, gambling and probably not the Bengals. Keep checking back.)

Vote on the poll and listen to the podcasts, jerks.
