Yet again, BlackInk has abandoned you in order to get Real Work done, and he has charged me with posting this week’s Random Ten. I don’t know about you, but I woke up this morning just before 8, and was greeted with tweets (yes, I check Twitter upon waking, no I don’t care what you think) about Barack Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Frankly, I thought I was still dreaming.
After I rubbed my eyes and looked again, I realized it was true. My first coherent thought: “WTF?!” And the urgency of that question only increased over the course of the morning — especially after the president’s short, awkward, and weirdly delivered pseudo-acceptance speech.
All of that to say, this week’s Random Ten theme is: Songs That Make You Go ‘WTF?!’
