Lyrics:

RM: This was a pretty remarkable week on the gay marriage front
First of all, to have a state like Iowa
MG: Whatchoo tryna say about Iowa
RM: Not the east coast state
MG: East coast
RM: Not the left coast state
MG: Left coast
RM: In a decision written by a republican appointee
MG: shawty, now you sounding so fine
Give me your number, we can bump and grind
Talkin about politics all night
Leavin the club in the mornin light
If we get carried away
We might get gay-married today

KC: We just heard from some of our viewers who strongly support legalizing marijuana
MG: Shawty, 5 of those calls was from me
KC: Do you think we should legalize pot alone or all drugs, including heroin, cocaine, and meth?
MG: My brain says no, but my body says yes!

AG: I’m an angry gorilla. I heard you needed me (ooh ooh ah ah)
SH: Now that Captain Phillips has been successfully rescued
The president has decided to step in front of the spotlight
AG: Ooh, I’m angry! You can’t see it, but my forehead’s veiny
SH: And even take some credit for authorizing the mission
AG: Well, don’t you worry, baby boo
You’ll always have an angry gorilla to be angry with you
That’s what I do. Just ask Donkey Kong. He’s in my crew

KC: At the North Pole, new satellite photos show arctic ice is melting so fast
AG: Oh snap, how fast?
KC: Many scientists now predict it will be gone within 30 years
AG: Surely you jest! I’m under cardiac arrest, shawty
KC: Some researchers think it could disappear in just six
AG: Shit!
KC: Without it there could be a snowball effect
AG: Oh
KC: With temperatures rising even faster
If we all don’t take bold action and take it soon
AG: Yeah,
Both: We will find ourselves on very thin ice

MG: Tell em, Hillary, pirates on very thin ice
HC: These pirates are criminals
They are armed gangs on the sea
MG: That means the ocean
HC: The United States does not make concessions
Or ransom payments to pirates

MG: Hello, shawty, we can meet up at the mall
Browse around at the bookstore
Mentally ball until we fall

    Man, shut the fuck up. I have 44 upvotes on my comment because it’s the funniest part of the video, and what do you do? You’re a little 16 year old punk that wants to troll me. You’re the reason we still have wars, dipshits like you want to start trouble without any context or rhyme or fucking reason. So, fuck you, fuck your father, fuck your mother, if your mother’s dead, fuck your dead mother, and fuck you, you rat fucking piece of shit.

    just the other year their population was on the rise 😉 also the ice sheets were biggest ever measured just 3 years ago. don’t be an alarmist. we got the coldest winters measured in 100y in europe in past 2 years. it looks to me we’re heading into another small ice age instead

    stop lookin at hockey stick bullshit charts and computer models.look at the temperatures for past 100y in ur own area and see there’s no change.we certainly have no change in finland. it’s all propaganda and lies really

    gay marriage? and all this other bullshit topics! if u don’t like gay marriage then don’t marry a gay!

    wish the news were more about shit that truly matters all our lives. like the libor scandal, that stole wealth from all of us on this whole planet through their rigging of the interest rates. it’s no different from stealing money right from ur wallet fools!
