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.
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.

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.
I suspect Bloomberg has no clue who these guys are.

"Do you know how many transfats are in magnets?"

Even an old geezer like me knows who the "InsaneClownPosse" is: they're the people that the AFL-CIO bussed into WI to write on the marble pillars and beat their drums.
