I was reading my apartment's newsletter the other day. (Yes, I know. I'm probably the only person who actually READS such things.)
One of the "Wit & Wisdom" quotes was Henry David Thoreau's "I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion." And it sounded so damn familiar.
Then, I remembered. Aerosmith's "You Gotta Move." Steven Tyler is quoting Henry David Thoreau - right after talking of "drinkin' welfare whiskey and smokin' food stamp crack."
I'm not quite sure if Thoreau would be appalled or flattered. ;)
