A "Baby Got Book" video!

Two years ago, for the fun of it, I wrote new literary lyrics to Sir Mix-a-lot's classic "Baby Got Back": a filk entitled "Baby Got Book," rapped by a narrator who only makes passes at girls who wear glasses (and are probably librarians to boot). Anyway, agent Janet Reid mentioned it on Twitter last week, and as a result, Gale Martin made it into this hilarious and highly enjoyable music video. Thanks, Gale!

  1. Shucks! You liked it--you really liked it. As with so many of us popular artistes, without someone else's fine words to pour forth, we'd be slobbering into our oversized, multi-directional microphones.

  6. Cheryl,
    Speaking of raps, my daughter,a Harry Potter-ophile, sent me this video of a rap-off between two Harry Potter characters. Now, these guys can rap! She thought I needed a lesson or two in how it's done. I thought you might get a kick out of it:
