So Paul Kevin Curtis, the suspect in the ricin mailing incidents (one to a Sen. Roger Wicker; one to President Obama), fancies himself a musician in that sort of broken, home-spun way you might remember from such films as “The Foot Fist Way.” I know what you’re thinking: “SFB, Danny McBride didn’t sing in ‘The Foot Fist Way!’” Well, as it turns out, this guy is also a master of martial arts, based on his Twitter profile pic.

Above is a video of him singing the Prince classic “Little Red Corvette” to a room of terrified students. (ht Dave Weigel)
