Here's a bit of silly news today: George Clinton of Parliament-Funkadelic was the guest on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! where he talked a bit about his recent memoir, Brothers be like, "George, Ain't That Funkin' Kind of Hard on You?" and answered some trivia questions about British Parliament for the gameshow.

Lots of great one-liners here on everything from working on a barber shop in Newark, NJ during the '50s to drug use during the '60s and '70s up to today. Also some insight to the classic party tune, "Flashlight," and how "Funk is the DNA for hip hop."
