Kids Play “Folsom Prison Blues” The Darndest Things

Is your heart sitting down?

Obviously, I love this video. You love this video. Your mom loves this video. Barack Obama is thinking about making this the National Video.

But I also hate this video.

Because I can already see myself some night in the future, standing in the doorway of my future child’s bedroom, a glass of something in my hand, sweat prickling on my brow, heavy with the weight of knowing that I have failed this poor little human with my lack of love for it. Because no matter how hard my future child might try, my future child will never be this child–the best child–and I will resent it for that. And I will ruin it. OH WELLOL. (Via BoingBoing.)
