Ghetto Stylin’

You do have to wonder what Miami City officials were smoking when they came up with this brilliant idea:

Miami city leaders are apologizing for a news release that invited summer campers to a ”Ghetto Style Talent Show” and ”Watermelon Eating Contest.”
The release said that children participating in the summer camp who “know the meaning of ghetto style” would have a chance to “prove just how ghetto they are.”

And far be it from me to get in a Scripture-Quoting Contest with the esteemed Rev. Carl Johnson, but I just don’t seem to recall this part:

“Watermelon, back in the days, was a good food for African Americans, according to the Bible, but at the same time, it had an attachment with slavery and bondage ties,” the Rev. Carl Johnson said.

    I heard Bojangles was hired as the caterer.

  3. A DEAD MAN?! Oh well hell, they vote there so why not let ’em dance, too?

    Dead people also vote in Chicago too, but at least they have the decency not to vote in two states.
