In comedy, timing is everything, and the creative minds at Funny or Die timed their spoof of The Wire just right with a musical adaptation released on the show's 10th anniversary.

The send-up, featuring cast members such as Michael Kenneth Williams (Omar), Sonja Sohn (Kima), Larry Gilliard Jr. (D'Angelo Barksdale) and Felicia Pearson ("Snoop"), even got kudos from show creator David Simon.

Taking to his blog, David called the video "hilarious," going on to write, "Felicia's turn alone is worth the time."
