Daily Operation: February 8+9, 2009 (Grammy Edition)

Yup, that's the late Ol' Dirty Bastard crashing a Grammy acceptance speech back in '98. The funny thing about this clip, that many people may not pick up on, is that Ol' Dirty didn't just interrupt Shawn Colvin and John Leventhal; he stole a smooch from Erykah Badu, unwillingly on her part, of course! Oh, how we miss that Dirty Bastard...
