Unless you want to count rhyming words with themselves like "front seat" and "back seat," the only rhyme in the entire song occurs in the line “Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal.” (in reality, it's kind of a half-rhyme at best, but we're being generous here). That’s it. Including the rap section. Would you have expected anything more? Check the lyrics to see for yourself.

Christopher Jacome, a 17-year-old Colombian soccer fan, was tragically gunned down while playing his beloved sport. After his funeral wake, a group of friends carried him and his coffin to the local soccer stadium to catch one final match! Cucuta Deportivo, Christopher’s favorite team, was playing on that day. Hundreds of people stormed the gates and overwhelmed stadium officials, who apparently let the coffin through with little resistance. Though Jacome’s death did not directly was not directly related to soccer, it’s pretty cool that his buddies decided to honor his memory in this way...though I wouldn’t recommend repeating this stunt to anyone.
Slater won his first Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) title at the age of 20 and was crowned world champion most recently this past November at the ripe old age of 38! The American surfing legend’s professional career started off with a bang when he won championships in 7 of his first 8 seasons. All in all, he has earned a record 10 world championships and a total of 44 tour wins, also a record. This is even more impressive when you consider that Slater took a two-year hiatus from surfing competition from 1999-2001!

Some awesome lists!
Zuckerberg has been with his girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, since he was in college, and he only now finally updated his relationship status. Strangely enough, the founder and owner of Facebook has traditionally kept a very limited profile for himself. Most users were barred by the privacy settings from seeing more than a picture and a list of friends. Lately, Zuck has been opening up more to the public with his profile. He now posts his relationship status, has a list of his family members, and has pictures of himself with his dog.
For some reason Forbes has been covering this story extensively.
Honus Wagner is considered one of the best baseball players of all time. He is also well-known for having one of the rarest baseball cards in history*. An authentic Honus Wagner card can net a collector several hundred thousand dollars. One such card was purchased in 2007 for $2.8 million! This card in particular has its own unique history. It was previously owned by hockey legend and sports memorabilia collector Wayne Gretzky.
Honus Wagner came out of retirement in 1908 after being offered a salary of $10,000 to return to the Pittsburgh Pirates. At the time, this made him the highest-paid player in baseball. Still, Wagner-Gretzky card today is 280 times Wagner’s major leage salary.
*This is because the Wagner himself refused to allow the American Tobacco Company to continue production of the card, possibly due to the fact that he didn’t want children to have to buy cigarettes to get his card. As a result only 60-200 cards were made.
