Casual Dress Friday: Booyah

Its a Casual Dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower, but I wanted start on a not so casual thing today: Don Imus. Do you know who he is? I didn't until he called the Rutgers basketball women "nappy headed hos." I saw this last week on the Internets and then it exploded all over TV, leading to Imus getting fired. Again, I don't even know who Don Imus is. No matter what he did, his popularity is now 100000000000000000x greater because of all of this publicity.

But despite the fact that I want to start with Imus, I'm not here to talk about Imus. Actually I'm wanted to talk about something that was said surrounding the Imus situation. This statement was made by Stuart Scott (you may have figured this out from the profile shot groteseque picture at the right). On a side note, have they figured out what in the hell is wrong with Stuart Scott's eye. Honestly. I'm not going to make a list of STD's I wouldn't want to get (because pretty much all of them are up there) but if I had to rank them I know Stuart Scott's eye would come in pretty high on that list.

Sorry, I'll get back on track...its just that I feel Stuart Scott's eye is attacking me...anyway, Stuart Scott has done some pretty weird things to get publicity (just watch for the Stuart Scott interludes in that one...Raise the Roof) before, but this may top it. He was on ESPNRadio yesterday and Mike and Mike asked him about the Imus thing. Scott said rappers who use those words "mean it in an affectionate way."

Are you nuts?

Let's check out a couple of examples:

- defines Ho as:
1) Prostitute, Whore, Hooker, Tramp, Slut
2) A word Santa Clause says three times when he sees your wife, mother and sister together in the same room,
3) A whore
4) A woman like my ex-girlfriend. Just to name a few.

- Here's Ludacris - Ho (this may be the worst modern video ever - Wheezy when you get your graphics art degree, I demand that you remake this video with more polygons or whatever you need...)

Outside of the Santa thing, I'm pretty sure none of those things above are too affectionate. And if you didn't already know: Stuart Scott is an idiot.

On the plus side, "Booyah" did result in a 10 second porn scene clip that floated around on the Internets when I was in college. Its too graphic to describe here, but I'll be glad to tell you about it sometime.

In any case, someone has taken the time to route (SFW) to the Official Website of Rutgers Intercollegiate Athletics. Good times.

You know, none of us would have any problems if we had a legion of late 80's/early 90's cartoon stars to help us resolve our problems (there's a couple TMNT shots in there, if you can make it - that's a 30 minute video there).

Speaking of the Turtles, here's a clip from their brief "Coming Out Their Shells" musical. Wheezy and I were talking about this last night and I figured I'd put a clip up here.

Sorry about being so late today. I've been really busy. Also, sorry about the Wanda Sykes link above. I just thought she made a few "I thought he was dead" jokes and I'm a sucker for those.

Have a good weekend.

I completely and totally watched that cartoon all stars show many many times. I believe it had a large part in my upbringing. It was the main reason I don't tuck my t-shirts into my jeans.

I'll be glad to redo that Luda video for ya, but before I do I've got a couple of other things to take care of first.

By the way... why was there like a life meter in that Ludacris video?

Also, Alf is a manipulative bastard around minute 19.

Its true, Alf is manipulative. But damnit I love him.

Also, the Luda life meter is due to the level of dirty box he encounters. Plain and simple - dirty box.
