If, like me, you have a perverse fondness for terrible music, then strap yourself in:

I think it's a Poe.

Here's the real song from the guy he mentions he's trying to out sing:

I thought it might be a Poe too, so I did a little digging.

If it's real, it's definitely timely.  I think it's a perfect example of Dunning-Kruger in action, LOL...

Thank you for giving a name (Dunning-Kruger effect) to a phenomenon I have observed so many painful times here on campus.  (I am an administrator in a college arts center.)  I will look forward to using this term in discussion.
