not exactly the lincoln portrait

I've found the litmus test for classical music nerdiness. Is this funny?




(My answer: Hyeah.)

It's pretty funny in a weird way... I can't remember the text of the original clearly, why is it so obsequious? Was the original really that obseqeious? Also, that voice sounds really nerdy, which doesn't help. I saw that Barack Obama narrated the Lincoln one w/ the Chicago Symphony Orchestra! If Barack narrated this one too, I think it would sound noble as well. :-)
