How’d you go?
Mostly A’s – Hey man!  You can turn that blue collar up, tease your cowlick, let those sideburns grow a little and tune up that Telecaster.  Rock and roll man!
Mostly B’s – You are one groovy cat going through condoms (hopefully) like they’re going out of fashion.  You’ve got plenty of soul to share with those ladies.
Mostly C’s – Best you get moving to the County Fair.  The Mayor’s getting ready to fire a shot to signal the start of the evening’s concert.  Go on- those lap steel guitars are ready and waiting for you.  And those girls ain`t going to be 13 forever.
Mostly D’s – Damn you got some poppin rhymes and toastin beats. You’ve got a lot to say about Hurricane Katrina and the Bush family too.  Take your posse and start bustin’ man!
