Napkins in the Globe

May 3, 2009

The Boston Globe may be about to go under, but they weren’t going to fold without shining the limelight on ZMW (Zachary, the Maccabee of Wisecrackery).  Check out Nick Zaino III’s terrific write-up here.   

Me, as quoted in the article: “It’s amazing the level of punning that goes on even with hard-core gangsta MCs.”

Headline of the article: “He raps up laughs.”

Clearly, the author of that headline is a gangsta MC.
