Gay guy on cell in long line during Circuit City closeout: Does it have speakers? Because I like to dance in my room, and I like to feel the music. It’s really cold, so I like to dance in my room, you know?

Professor: I’m of the personal opinion that anything counts for art. Take, for example, Nelly’s “Hot in Here.” We have an admonition of certain weather conditions and an entreaty for certain members of a demographic to react within a certain way, and a compliant voice replies, “I am getting so hot, I’m gonna take my clothes off.” This piece of art demonstrates how much easier life would be if getting a woman naked was that easy. And also, it makes me dance, and as we know, hips don’t lie.
