I hate a capella, but I love me some bed intruder song. Damn you, hatrk219 for sending this along!

Important announcement after the jump.

Announcement: Gallagher and Brad will probably have something about this later today, or perhaps even this weekend, but in all likelihood, this will be last links post I do as the regular links guy. My new job has taken over my life and really sapped a big chunk of free time. I'm not leaving the site, however. Brad and Gallagher are going to let me rant a few times a week in column format, so I'll be around plenty. But, I'm pretty sure my days as a link rat are done.

GTHQ is looking for someone to take the Friday, Saturday and Sunday links. PCS is going to work Monday through Thursday. It's a sweet gig and a lot of fun. I'll even teach you the tricks of the trade of the trade and give you access to the email. If you're interested, comment or email gallagher or the links email.

Poor College Student will have you for this weekend. Someone will have the Monday links, but it probably won't be me.

And I'll leave you with a song that has no meaning whatsoever. It's what I do.
