Papa Craig, In the Closet, with the Hip Hop

I deleted a picture I'd scanned on my dad's computer, and thought, "You know, he probably never clears out the recycle bin." So I looked. There were a lot of files in there, but not as many as I had thought there would be. However, there were a few suspect tunes. In the recycle bin were a variety of songs by Justin Timberlake, Akon, The Black Eyed Peas, Destiny's Child, Kanye West, Timberland, Rihanna, Beyonce, Outkast, 50 cent, and Usher. Also in the mix, The Killers, Fallout Boy, Blink 182, The Fray, Lifehouse, Evanescence, and Linkin Park. There were more.

I know it's from somebody else using the computer. He's had it for almost three years, and in that time a wide variety of people have been at the keyboard.

But I'm not sure you can fully grasp how funny it would be if my dad was a closet rap/hip-hop/rock/punk fan. He just puts them in the recycle bin to hide them, like an alcoholic puts a flask of gin in the back of the toilet tank. Nobody will look there.

I about died laughing thinking about your dad listening to all that music. It just paints a really funny picture.
