Anything Rhyme With Pocket Protector?

Only somewhat less ridiculous than a geriatric rock show at halftime of the Superbowl; Geeksta Rap:

It's all because of Rajeev Bajaj, a 39-year-old chemical engineer from Fremont, Calif., who is either going to become the def jammer of the science and technology domain or the poster boy for excruciatingly embarrassing nerdiness.

Bajaj recently spent $15,000 of his own money forming an independent record label and hiring musicians to perform four rap and hip-hop songs he wrote in praise of the engineering profession. He hopes his debut album, "Geek Rhythms," will convince America that engineers indeed are cool.

We can answer that for ourselves here. The FLUBA Committee on Fascinatin' Rhythm isn't going to forget the Gershwins anytime soon:

I made the calculator and computer, too,
'cause math is not something everybody can do...
I am an engineer.
Respect my mind.
So bow down when u see me downtown.
