I don’t know if that says something about Facebook, me, or the people I hang out with over there. Probably all three.
See how many words in this poem you pronounce correctly. I had a blast with this one, and I got four wrong (though, to be fair, one was a word I didn’t know). Clearly I speak better English than most native English speakers (of which I’m not one, ha!).
Here’s an excerpt:
Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
See what I mean?
You can make Bart write whatever you want. I’m pretty sure you will spend hours, if not the entire day, trying to outdo young Simpson.
Though it didn’t take Ken Mueller very long to come up with this one:
Thank you, Tracy Viselli, for giving me a huge laugh yesterday with this one. Though if I strain or break something while trying to imitate these moves, you will be hearing from my lawyer, personal trainer, accountant, clients, husband, dogs, Apple and Ragan’s PR Daily. And not necessarily in that order.
I’m warning you – this video is addictive. I suggest you watch it and enjoy it in its entirety first. Then try to sing (and dance) along with the lyrics, so helpfully included.
Of course you know that poem is my favorite. I "forgot" how many I got wrong when I read it the first time, heh heh.
@hackmanj Thanks! Which was your favorite?
@ericamallison Heh! Did you already play with them? And thank you for sharing!
LOL it's funny I saw @ginidietrich 's profile yesterday with timeline. First time I have seen it on a page and I was appalled. Totally found it very chaotic. Anyway I will do the right thing and tweet this and post on Google + 8)
BTW @jasonkonopinski try this one http://www.rhymes.org.uk/this_is_the_house_that_jack_built.htm it is really intense and challenging. My girlfriend's daughter Lili who is 6.5 months old said I messed up repeatedly.
@ShakirahDawud I thought of you immediately when I saw the poem. It's just genius.
@TheJackB Isn't it hilarious?!
@hackmanj Did you see how quick @kmueller62 was to use that to make fun of me?
@hackmanj Oh, of course, I saw that in my Reader!
@shonali I cross posted it to my blog this morning, you probably saw that one :) Love that thing, for me it wasn't a time waster.
