Quickie Funnie

Here's a great little story...Zee Germans love street cred:

DETROIT (Reuters) - The head of DaimlerChrysler's Chrysler division borrowed a phrase from rapper Snoop Dogg on Thursday to thank Motor Trend magazine for naming the Chrysler 300 its 2005 "car of the year."

"Winning the Motor Trend Car of the Year award is huge for us," said Dieter Zetsche, Chrysler's president and chief executive.

"As Snoop Dogg would say, it's the shizzle," he added.

Shizzle is urban slang that can have many different meanings, according to Snoop Dogg himself. But it is mostly used in the phrase "fo' shizzle," as in "for real" or "for sure."

Zetsche's reference to Snoop Dogg, in his German-accented English, was not gratuitous. The Los Angeles rapper is a big fan of the 3OO, which has a large chrome grill and low-slung roof. He grabbed headlines in Detroit last May after he left a voicemail message for Zetsche demanding to know how he could get his hands on the hot-selling sedan.

Bookman's best: Sure, we're too old to change the world, but what about that kid, sitting down, opening a book, right now, in a branch at the local library and finding drawings of pee-pees and wee-wees on the Cat in the Hat and the Five Chinese Brothers?

Doesn't HE deserve better? Look. If you think this is about overdue fines and missing books, you'd better think again. This is about that kid's right to read a book without getting his mind warped!
