Art is everywhere, people—even in most nonsensical Yahoo! Answers responses!

On Wednesday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the late-night host and Broadway superstar Audra McDonald theatrically sang actual questions and answers from the community-driven site. 

While the crowd-sourced advice probably shouldn't be taken literally, it certainly is entertaining to hear as sung by a six-time Tony Award winner! Jimmy Fallon's vocals were on point, too, although he struggled to keep a straight face as he sang lyrical gems like, "I swallowed an ice cube last night and then it disappeared, and I'm wondering if it's stuck." 

But Audra, a consummate professional, stayed true to character in her hilarious response, singing, "Swallow a bunch of other cubes at once; that way it will knock down the one that is stuck."

The songstress relayed other sage Yahoo! Answers wisdom, too, like how to "be the life of the party." She made lyrics from Eminem's "My Name Is" sound like they belonged on the Great White Way and answered the pressing question of whether vodka kills bees and wasps.

Perhaps most impressively, though, Audra beautifully sang the top Yahoo! Answer for how to become president of the United States—this one might surprise you! Watch the Tonight Show clip above to find out the answer and see all of Jimmy and Audra's Yahoo! Answers performance.
