I meant to post this one last week when it happened, but I had to do some detective work first.

My students have grouped themselves into corners in the room. Groups are doing their thing. I love a loud classroom. Lots of talking and working.  Missy was in a group at the opposite corner of the room from where she had put her stuff upon arriving in the classroom. Missy's phone starts going off with some obnoxious pop music ringtone. All the student mysteriously get quiet, then several start giggling. (They know what's coming; I have no idea.) Missy climbs over her group, knocking over a chair, has to maneuver around two other groups to get to her bags in the corner.  By the time she gets to her purse, the ringtone has rung its course. Can you guess the ringtone? It's this song, uncensored. By the time she gets there, the whole class is laughing hysterically. I was trying hard not to.

I love that song! My kids learned the sanitized version on Glee and fell in love with it too. I found my son googling the lyrics just in the nick of time and helped him find the version that wouldn't get him kicked off the playground.

Quotiazelda and Alastrina, both of your posts made me giggle.

I nearly fell out of my theater seat laughing during The Muppets when Camilla and the Chickens covered it.  I had to wonder how many of the kids (and parents) in the theater knew what the original lyrics to the song were.

What song is it? The YouTube won't open for me, and y'all are being very cryptic!

My cousin and her husband played the explicit version at their wedding reception. A somewhat odd choice, I thought, though the bride came down the aisle to "November Rain," so they're not exactly traditional.

The other day in the cafeteria

Random student: Are you considering a career as a rapper?
Instructor: No. Are you?
Random student: Maybe
Instructor: Ok, maybe.

The instructor was me.  I'm certain it was my white lace cardigan and frilly skirt that had me pegged as a rapper.

Cee-lo "Forget" You

For those who don't follow hip-hop/pop, the original version used a different word starting with F, that ends up being censored on both the Fora and the radio.  "Forget" You was done by Cee-Lo Green when "F&^%" You became a rather bigger hit than anticipated but couldn't be played on the radio or in most public spaces.

In my opinion, Secundem_artem is precisely correct. 

I think secundem_artem, rather, has hit the nail on the head.

This was a couple months ago, but I was just reminded of it by the combined action of the two "Can I... ?" threads:
