W3C rocks the house

Ok, this beats it all. If you are a musician and accessibility consultant this might be an obvious thing to do, otherwise not. Anyway, here's a song about writing accessibility standards for WCAG. To the tune of YMCA. Featuring "Sharky" the ScreenReader rapping. Made me fall of my chair with stomach cramps.

Let's rock the house...
