Okay Stephen, laurels for you. That was fun and funny.

LL Cool J - back to boards, you're a rapper not a C&W singer. (thank goodness)

Thanks JL...thanks for making me laugh. What's both funny and also a bit sad is that I'm not sure some of the Skynard and Paisley fans, or perhaps even the songwriters themselves, are bright enough or sensitive enough to realize just how offensive some of their songs are to some, and that the songs are necessarily bigoted and racist.

Tried the alternative location, but for those outside the U.S., the links are not permitted. It's an American only ball game.

No, Dale, you're not the only one. I can't get it to play here either. In either FF or IE. Try again later if I remember. :^)

Yes, I do not understand why LLCJ participated in this joke of a (song)? Does anyone think this will make an impression on rascism? I'm glad Colbert did this on his show. kudos to him....and his parody on gay men/straight men.
