Respect Wordsworth... Seriously... Stop Giggling

Wordsworth.jpgIn the annals of literary landmark commemoration, there have probably been few moments as bizarre as this bicentennial reworking of Wordsworth's I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud. In an attempt to make the poem relevant to the "You Tube generation", the official tourist body of the Lakes District (whose flora inspired the poem) commissioned a "hip-hop" version of it and then enlisted the mascot of a local steamboat company, a giant red squirrel called Sam, to perform it. Oh, and the squirrel was given a new name especially for the occasion - MC Nuts... I kid you not.
