I came home today and found my roommate dancing around the kitchen to Old Crow Medicine Show.

Roommate: This song is awesome! Isn't this song awesome? It's about unions! Woo! Unions!
Me: (reading a piece of mail from the SEIU Local 503 and not really listening) Oh, yeah.
Roommate: (singing) She couldn't be fooled by a company stool, she'd always organize the guys...
Me: Actually, you know, the history of women in union politics is full of exclusion.
Roommate: Huh? But they're singing about a union woman.
Me: Yeah, and it's not a very characteristic story.
Roommate: But it could happen once-- you have no-- but--
Me: (pulling Out To Work out of my book bag and opening my mouth to say something about the 1920s)
Roommate: Aaaaah!

A few minutes later the musical selection was suddenly axed and replaced with Missy Elliot.
