Boyz In The 'Hood


The guys were standing close to each other, chanting something in a low voice. My curiosity was piqued - what heinous saying had they picked up during recess now! I had to push my way into the huddle to hear what it was they were saying. It went like this:

"Yo yo yo
I'm a Silk Worm, yo
And I like to
Poop out silk,

I like to eat
mulberry leaves,
washed down with a glass of milk.

Yo yo yo
I'm a silk worm, yo
and I like to
poop out silk,

I spin my web
to make your threads
I'm a Home Boy that's fo sure.

When I asked where they had heard this enchanting little ditty, the Professor informed me that he had made it up. Yes, I am biased, but is that frickin cute or what? Of course, now I can't stop chanting it...

Yo yo yo... I'm a silk worm, yo...!

It could be worse, it could be the Ride of the Valkrys. I love that picture by the way.
