My mom is obsessed with the song "Crank That" by Soulja Boy.

I don't know exactly who we are to blame for her penchant for this song, but she got bit by the Soulja bug. Hard. Actually, I take that back. I think it all started with this, which is weird, because Auburn lost that game.

She doesn't even get the lyrics right. She just sings nonsense. And on top of that, she has NO IDEA what it means. Or, what it would mean if she were singing it correctly:

"Soulja boy up in eh HOOO wa me crank it wa me ro Superman uh HOOOOO!"

She actually says "Wa Me Ro." Even Soulja Boy himself puts forth more effort into the song. I tried to explain that "Wa Me Ro" sounds like something you order at a Chinese restaurant and if she's going to sing it, to sing it right.

"It's 'Watch Me Roll' and if you really knew what that song meant, you wouldn't be singing it," I warned.
"Wa Me Ro! Wa Me Ro! What's it mean?"

I explained the song to her.

"It does not mean that. You made that up. Wa Me Ro!"

Sigh. Sometimes I wonder who is raising whom.
