Nerdcore is the new Gangsta

The rise of nerdcore rap is either a symbol of our glorious mashup society, or this week's sign of the apocalypse. I'll let you decide. All I can say is that reading the lyrics to this rap had me laughing out loud, which is probably a bad sign:

You're running csh and my shell is bash,
You're the tertiary storage; I'm the L1 cache.
I'm a web crawling spider; you an Internet mosquito;
You thought the 7-layer model referred to a burrito.
You're a dialup connection; I'm a gigabit LAN.
I last a mythical man-month; you a one-minute man.
It's like I'm running Thunderbird and you're still stuck with Pine,
Which is why I think it's time for me to KILL DASH NINE.

P.S. Thanks to Vinnie for the link!

P.P.S. I'm proud to say that I've never used Pine. Elm all the way, baby.

Real men use /bin/mail, because /usr/ucb/mail is too user-friendly. And they know who "ed" is, even if they use "vi" for serious work.
