In an anonymous high school student’s paper about Oedipus Rex, we find this gem of a citation:
Riding in the benzo, poppin my colla
See some fine wenches, I hafta holla
Diamonds, gold, and all the mighty dolla
I’m oedipus bitch, the original balla.
I bust out my 9, to light up your impala.
Fuck that police!
Thanks to George Bush’s No Child Left Behind policy the teacher was forced to give this inebriated student a 61% for his creative efforts. Much to my shame, I’m unable to locate the citation in any of the translations of Oedipus that I posses, but my friends assure me this is a truthful rendering of the original Greek.
