The Only Thing Better Than Working an Eminem Lyric into Your Accounting Paper Is Your Professor Calling You Out For It

I haven't written anything for academic purposes in quite some time, but it's nice to know that some of the profession's future have some creative thoughts bouncing around the grey matter.

The following was sent to us from a student who told us that "one of my buddies who was able to slip in a Dr. Dre/Eminem reference in a paper for his capstone accounting class and was called out on it."  

If you're not familiar with hip-hop, the excerpt highlighted comes from the song Forget About Dre, a single from Dr. Dre's album 2001 that features Eminem. I doubt that either man ever dreamed that any words they've written or uttered would ever wind up in an accounting paper, but there you have it.

It's equally remarkable that this professor recognized it and we're told that the "12" was 100% of the points possible, so the prof rewarded the student appropriately.

Really nice job all around.
