Jay is Gheorghe?

Not many people would imagine that rap superstar Jay-Z would be the kind of guy who would embrace the mission statement of this fair blog. Though, admittedly, that might have more to do with their collective ignorance of this blogs existence than their feelings and/or thoughts about his personal philosophies. Whatever the reason, Jay proved he is indeed truly Gheorghian in his take on life after Oasis' Noel Gallagher (he's still alive?) bashed the selection of the former CEO of Def Jam as the opening act at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in England by calling it "wrong".

As you'll see in the clip, below, actions truly can speak a thousand words and, in this case, provide a few hearty guffaws as well.



Bravo. Welcome to the world of Gheorghe, good sir.

Man, I didn't think that my clip would spell the end of a previously busy day 'round these parts.

TJ said...

rob's too short to see that there's a new post on the tabletop...

Mark said...

And Whitney's too old to embrace this "rap" stuff...

mark, you ruined a perfectly good comedy pyramid. though the jay z clip may help us broaden our demographic appeal. we're really strong with white males age 31-38. and women that live on the outer banks or know someone who does. otherwise, not so much.

TJ said...

rob, once the G:TB Summer Lecture Series wraps up, we'll also be huge in Europe, Scandinavia and the sub continent.

rob said...

i forgot about romania. we're huge in romania.

Mark said...

See Rob, I'm 30. Thats where the problem lies. Also, not to nitpick here but it wasn't really a comedy pyramid. More of a "discussion of comedy pyramid".

And if you didn't think that Jay-Z's response to the limey douche Gallagher was funny well, then, I don't know what to say to you.

rob said...

it was a comedy parallelogram - not nearly 3-dimensional enough to be a pyramid.

and i didn't mean to cast aspersions on mr. carter's response - that was some funny.

30, though, that's gonna be a problem. whitney's almost 38.

Mark said...

What constitutes a comedy rhombus?

TJ said...

According to google, it's this. But I don't find that funny at all. Frankly, it's downright offensive.

Mark said...

I'll have to agree. The money that some schmuck got paid to design that is absolutely offensive.
