NWA was right

Hypothetical scenario: A couple from Virginia attends a Baltimore Orioles game and, while looking for a way to get onto I-95, gets lost and ends up in the ghetto. They ask a police officer for directions. The cop:

A) gives them directions and sends them on their way
B) refuses to tell them how to get to the interstate
C) intervenes when the couple asks another officer for directions
D) arrests them for trespassing on a public street and puts them in jail
E) B,C, and D

If you answered E, you are correct (although there is some dispute). If you'll excuse me, I have some Ice Cube* to blare.

*The angry, whitey-hating pre-movie career Ice Cube, that is.

Haha! I heard that story. Of course, NWA is always right.

Why would ANYONE purposely go to BALTIMORE?

dubin - You don't question Eazy-E (unless the debate centers on safe sex).

spydrz - Two words: Camden Yards

i think that was an episode of Homicide: Life on the Streets.

Best exchange in a NWA song:

EAZY-E: "So all you ladies, what'cha wanna do?"
LADIES: "We wanna f*** you Eazy"
EAZY-E: "I wanna f*** you too."

How can you argue with poetry like that?

jasdye - Hmmm...must've missed that one (and every episode of "Homicide", for that matter - though I've heard it's a good show).

dubin - I'm a huge fan of his solo "Gimmie That Nutt" song, but since this is a family blog I can't quote any of it. So I'll leave you with this "Futurama" exchange that I saw last night:

Leela: It's amazing that your people can fall in love so fast.
Zoidberg: Love? That word is unknown here. I'm simply looking for a female swollen with eggs to accept my genetic material.
Fry: You and me both, brother.

Eazy-E's "I'd Rather F*** You" is another classic ballad that always melts the ladies' hearts.

they probably should have been arrested; it's easy to get to/from the inner harbor. these are probably some of the same brainless cats that have driven my kid brother to form the BFTI (Banned From The Internet) Coalition; a shadowy paramilitary group whose sole purpose is to storm the houses and workplaces of those individuals deemed too stupid to operate a computer/traverse the internet super highway and forcibly remove the computer/sever the internet connection.

Spydrz - people also go to Baltimore to see NFL games. Unlike DC, you can take light rail directly to Ravens stadium.

that was your brother? thank God for public libarys, tho'.

Micah said...

dubin - If Neil Diamond were to re-record "Done Too Soon", Mr. Eric Wright would definitely make the list. Eazy-E flew too close to the sun on wings made of...uh...well, definitely not latex.

THSE - Your brother's ideas are intriguing and I'd like to subscribe to his newsletter.

jasdye - Public libraries? Oh, the place where homeless people go to go BM.

jasdye said...

i think i work way too much with young men with nasty minds. i never heard of BM before. but i think i know what it means.

that's just gross, micah. but, o well, where else, you know?
