Bible Rapping: 'Baby Got Book'

>Mark Kleiman, filling in for Ta-Nehisi Coates this week, blogs about the Bible's book of Jonah this morning. Meanwhile, Buzzfeed's posted this video, where Dan Smith (alias "Whiteboy DJ") raps about the Bible—specifically, his love of women who read big ones—to the tune of "Baby Got Back." The clip opens with a revision of Sir Mixalot's immortal lines:

Oh my goodness, Becky, look at her Bible. It's so...huge. She looks like one of those preacher guy's girlfriends. But who understands those preacher guys? They only talk to her because she looks like Mother Theresa, ok? I mean but look at it, it's huge and gross. She just looks so...righteous.
