Must be one of those known unknowns

The Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps" is one of the worst songs of the last decade, and maybe ever. So it's with slight trepidation that I direct you to a cover of it -- even if it's Alanis Morissette's hilarious deadpan parody that's spreading like wildfire.

How this song ever won a Grammy is one of those unanswerable Zen questions, like "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" or "Why do the Devil Rays even bother?"

The Grammy was well-deserved, as the song is clearly a loving homage to Irving Berlin, in the tradition of his classics "Whoop That Trick".

For some reason, I get the feeling that getting drunk on Alanis' humps leads to a vindictive ex-girlfriend anthem.

Maybe because it was about me.

Don't act like you didn't like the movie theatre, it was your idea.

And I don't care for the derogatory comment you made toward Canada afterward, either.

I still can't look at a polar bear the same away again.
