And all you college students, play your Ouijas
Wyclef tells the undergrads to go ahead and play with their ridiculous spiritualist prop, the Ouija Board.
Ouija boards are also known as “spirit boards” or “talking boards.” It is a round board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0-9, the words “yes,” “no,” “hello” (occasionally), and “goodbye,” along with various symbols and graphics. A group of people (most likely college students) each put their hands on the “planchette” (a small heart-shaped piece of wood) or movable indicator, ask it a question, and then the spirits that live in the board (presumably) answer. The spirit’s message is spelled out by the movement of the planchette.
It is, of course, nonsense, but so is undergrad.
