Call him Mr. Brad Paisley, Mmmkay?

My best friend/roommate, Meghan and I once took the same 3 hour biology course in college.  We figured it would be great to be able to study together, take turns taking notes, ride together ahem take turns going to the class... you know- all the perks.  So when the first day rolled around, we hopped in one car, drove the few minutes to campus and when we walked into our lecture hall, who did we see standing in front of the class?

Brad Paisley Answers Your Questions!
Yep, Brad Paisley. 
Okay... so, maybe he wasn't really Brad Paisley, but I couldn't tell you the guys name because from that moment on we called him "Mr. Brad Paisley".  He came complete with the country accent and all.
Unlike Brad Paisley, and very much like Mr. Mackey from Southpark,
Mr. Brad Paisley's favorite word to use was "Mmmkay?"
He said it after everything.
On the ride home Meghan and I would mimic Mr. Brad Paisley by singing lyrics from Brad Paisley songs and then adding "mmmkay?" to the ends.
"I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be, Mmmkay?"
or "We danced out there on that empty hard wood floor, Mmmkay?"
Something we found hilarious at the time.
One fateful evening in Biology, when discussing the ever so entertaining and always intriguing golgi bodies,
it happened... Meghan cracked!(I knew it was only a matter of time!)
Mr. Brad Paisley points to a picture on the projection screen and says
"Golgi bodies process proteins and work to move them outside of the cell, MMMMKAY?"
And then a voice comes from the seat next to me, nestled in the very back row of the hall.
Without looking up from her notes, Meghan says loud and proud, as though we were by ourselves in the car,

Every person in the class then turns to stare at the two of us sitting alone in the back row & passed all of their heads I can see Mr. Brad Paisley staring back as well.
Clearly, all I could do at this point was laugh my booty off.  I started laughing so hard that I had to shove my sweater in my mouth and put my head down on my desk to hide the tears that were rolling down my face.
I couldn't compose myself the rest of the class.  People kept turning around looking slightly amused and a little annoyed, so when we took a break I just decided it was best to leave.
I still can't hear Brad Paisley on the radio or see him on tv without thinking about that night and laughing...
mmmkay? ;)
