Blinding the World

I don't usually post email forwards, but this is fantastic. From Dr. Graffius:

Lipps, Inc.

I got my lunch from Casa Blanca, a damn fine Mexican/Salvadorean place here on Vermont. If ever you're in the area, I can't recommend the place highly enough. Like all Mexican restaurants, they have this strange bastardization of Pop and Salsa music playing in the background.

As I waited for my delicious chicken soft tacos, I noticed something familiar about the music. I stopped, moved closer to the speaker and put on my happy listening face.

They were playing a Pop-Salsa version of Funkytown.
