An experiment Mayor Bloomberg conducted yesterday with Twitter demonstrated that he's got some impressive scientific smarts -- but desperately needs to get up to speed on hip-hop.I suspect Bloomberg has no clue who these guys are.
Bloomberg invited tweets to his weekly WOR radio show, and among the four questions he chose to answer was, "F--king magnets? How do they work?"
The coarse language should have signaled a prank in progress, but the mayor dutifully offered a serious explanation involving the orbital direction of electrons.
Host John Gambling was amazed that Bloomberg, once an electrical-engineering student at Johns Hopkins, hadn't forgotten his college lessons.
Neither man realized that a popular hip-hop duo known as Insane Clown Posse just happens to have a video invoking the exact same words in the Twitter query.

Clueless Bloomberg Gets Tweet Pranked: 'F--king Magnets? How Do They Work?'
Nothing like a guy trying to look hip and coming off like a complete dolt. That's Mike Bloomberg for you.
