It's Springtime for Hitler and Rebecca Black

Spring is here, and there's a new teen sensation starting to take over from Justin Bieber. The teen in question is 13 year-old Rebecca Black. Her song Friday and its associated video are the talk of the internet. There are at least a half dozen Hitler commentary videos and nearly that many dramatic reading videos on youtube.

There are a couple of things that I find interesting on this. How come when they get up in the morning it's broad daylight, and when my kids get up it's freaking dark? Since when is a 13 year-old allowed to drive a car, much less a Chrysler Sebring convertible? By the way, I actually don't think the song is that bad. The lyrics are inane, but they are no worse than Birthday by the Beatles. Anytime a 13 year-old does something other than play COD all day, I'm for it. In an effort to keep my scores of readers cuturally literate, I shall embed.
