"Instant karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you..."
Okay, so maybe the karma's not so instant, but you've just got to know that, if this whole afterlife thing really exists, John Lennon's laughing his ass off as Strom Thurmond discovers that he's related to the Reverend Al Sharpton.
Well, might be related. What is proven is that, at one time, an ancestor of the late Senator Thurmond owned an ancestor of the Reverend Sharpton.
And sure, it came out not long ago that Strom fathered a child by a black woman, so maybe Strom wasn't really all that disgusted by the black (wo)man. But still, it's one thing to father a black child, but for Strom to be related to the Reverend Al must really be chapping at this surpreme segregationist.
Yeah, instant karma's gonna get you. Haha.
