Track of the Day: 'Stacy's Mom'

A reader confides:

Last summer, my extremely pregnant wife and I had the Music Choice channel from Comcast on the tele. It was the Y2K station, so it played all sorts of random crap from the ‘00s. The (awful) Fountains of Wayne song “Stacy’s Mom” came on, and she lost it and we went to town.

Afterwards I asked her why, and she said it was because she was pissed that she wasn’t going to be able to have sex anymore without being someone’s mother.
