Drop a dime, get a grand

The Detroit News ran an article today talking about how Crime Stoppers is seeing a jump in tips due in Michigan due to the steadily falling economy and poor job market.

Sumayyah (read the Cast of Characters page), says it stinks of Orwellianism. Personally, if the only thing standing between me and my lights getting cut off is tipping the cops that it was RayRay up the street who robbed someone at gun point…fuck RayRay. You can say I’m a snitch, you can say I’m a sell out, but you can’t say I’m sitting in the dark.

A grand for a tip on a homicide that leads to an arrest. Forget all the moral stuff. Forget doing your duty as a good citizen of whatever city you live in. It’s a grand for making a phone call. Now, that may not sound like a lot to some folks, but that’s rent, electricity/gas, phone and cable with plenty left over for groceries.

So, once again, fuck RayRay.

And while I’m on the subject of crime and criminals: Black people…cut this shit out

(hat tip The Smoking)

WTF kind of Smurf do you skin for hair like that? More importantly, who the hell lied to her and said it was cute? Blue is not the same as blue-black.  Stop this shit now.

(Swiped from The Smoking Gun)

FEBRUARY 5–A 19-year-old man was arrested Sunday night for singing the lyrics to a profane rap song as he walked on a Florida street. Christopher Holder was nabbed after a woman complained to police that her two children (ages five and 14) heard Holder repeatedly reciting the words “mother fucker,” according to a Hernando County Sheriff’s Office report, a copy of which you’ll find here. When questioned by deputies, Holder “immediately began arguing that he did nothing wrong,” and explained that he was merely covering a song by Louisiana rapper Lil’ Boosie, whose most recent album, “Bad Azz,” includes cuts like “My Nigga” and “Fuck You.” But Holder, pictured in the below mug shot, added that he “agreed that he did not believe children needed to hear language such as that being hollered down the road.” Holder was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Ok….10 points to the person who can guess what our Boosie spouting friend looks like…

If you guessed geeky white boy….


You saw that one coming a mile away didn’t you?

Mysteries of human physiology

So Lil’ Wayne got pinched last week on (surprise, surprise) a felony drug possession charge…and, of course, The Smoking Gun got the mug shot.

Now, I’ve never really paid that much attention to Lil’ Wayne or his looks. I knew what I needed to know: he’s black, from New Orleans, he’s got more tattoos that a little bit, and he’s got locs, and, for reasons unfathomable to me, women seem to fall all over themselves for him. But TSG’s mug shot made me look a little closer.

Ok…first question: WTF is that on his forehead? Is Lil’ Wayne taking a page out of the Charlie Manson book of tattoos?

My second question: How the hell do you manage to get your neck wider than your head? Wayne’s neck look like it’s about to swallow his head. For real, what the hell sort of steroids do you take to get a neck like that?
