A few months back, a young political blogger that I follow on Twitter announced that he will retweet any link he sees that references the song “Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison. This made me try to concoct a list of pop culture references (other than “Return of the Mack”, because obviously I concur with the retweeting of “Return of the Mack”) that I will automatically retweet, or reblog, or retumbl…depending on what particular branch of my personal Internet tree I happened to be perched on. This list is long but honestly probably not comprehensive. So — Maggie’s Auto-Reblog List! I will retweet any and all references to:
