Tired of the Hump

Since about the middle of last year, I've been hearing this goofy-ass song talkin' about 'humps'. It's by the 'Black Eyed Peas', a sub-genre urban niche group that's been around for a while, but only began to garner commercial success in the last few years. I was trying to figure out if this was a joke song. You know, like the 'Thong Song'. I mean, the lyrics say, "My lovely lady lumps..." how can you possibly take that seriously? It sounds as if it came from the mouth of a mentally handicapped person. 'My hump, my hump, my hump'... It would be different if they had a new name for butt. But 'hump' has always been slang for buttocks, as far as I can remember. 'Bustin' my hump.' I can't believe there are human beings out there that listen to this and think, "Wow, I like this song!"

I'm sure the Black-eyed Peas have paid their dues to get where they are. Adding a somewhat attractive girl to their lineup didn't hurt, either. But, good-grief, I can't take hearing it much more. I wish someone would put the Black-eyed Peas in a pot and boil their asses. And throw that damn hump in there with 'em.
