Defending MC Nuts

A couple of weeks ago Have I Got News For You had great fun with Cumbria Tourism's new attempt to promote the Lake District. This involved having the rapper MC Nuts dress up as Squirrel Nutkin to deliver a rap version of Wordsworth’s Daffodils.

Not Saussure has the video and adds:
And aren’t people always complaining that rap music concentrates too much on themes to do with guns, violence and drugs? Well, surely this is a step in the right direction.
Besides, I am very fond of the Divine Comedy's settings of the Lucy poems.

The Divine Comedy's Lucy is beautiful.
