Unofficial Miami Anthem "I'm on a Boat" Earns Befuddling Grammy Nod

Unless your studio nickname is Babyface or you wear shades with slats, the Grammys probably mean nothing to you. As a ego-massaging spectacle, the music industry's award show is even more irritating than the Oscars.

That being said, we think it's pretty awesome that "I'm on a Boat" -- the Saturday Night Live/ Andy Samberg parody video filmed in Miami -- has been nominated for Best Rap Collaboration. Why? Because we get to put the video on our blog again.
