It's gotten so crazy that ol Ty had to dig deep and come up with a new award intended for knuckleheads who just can't seem to keep their mouths shut when they know they should. You've read about a few of them here in the Malone Zone - Kramer (Michael Richards), I-Dub (Isaiah Washington) and now the newest knucklehead on the block, former NBA star Tim 'I hate Gay People' Hardaway (aka Little Timmy). Now Little Timmy has to be the *biggest* knucklehead to date given that the furor over I-Dub's comment and the ensuing career fallout is still fresh news! So I had to do it y'all...
Hence forth, I plan to begin bestowing the Run DMC 'You Talk To Much' Big Mouth Award on knuckleheads afflicted with the malady known as diarrhea of the mouth which causes an inability to know when and be able to shut the hell up. My rap historian readers will recognize the following snippet from the Run DMC 'You Talk To Much' jammy-jam:
"You talk about people, you don't even know
And you talk about places, you NEVER go
You talk about your girl, from head to toe
I said your mouth's moving fast, and your brain's moving slow
You talk too much You never shut up!!
I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up"
Yes - I agree. It's almost too appropriate. So here you go Little Timmy - congrats on being the first knucklehead recipient. And based on a comparison of Little Timmy's comments to I-Dub's (who went into treatment for saying fa**ot), you have to figure that Little Timmy will need to go through a 52 step program.
It's laughable that after going off and laying out his views the way he did, that after his banishment from NBA All-Star Weekend activities and the first wave of recriminations that poured in from all over, Little Timmy quickly backed off his statements with the now patented, weak azz, after the fact apology. It's like those fools who who think saying 'No disrepect' will excuse anything that follows. Like, 'No disrespect but your mama's face looks like the butt end of an elephant." It doesn't work like that y'all.
I also appreciate Payalisha over on Marinate On This pointing out the apparent double standard in the gay community surrounding the seeming acceptance to gay comic Charles Knipp's blackface character 'Shirley Q. Liquor,' a fool who makes money going to various venues playing Shirley Q. Liquor, an inarticulate black woman on welfare with 19 kids. Check out the clip on Marinate and then the welcomed follow up by Jasmyne Connick on EURweb.com which outlines how potential Knipp venues are finally catching wise to his ridiculous minstrel ruckus and shutting him out. At least some folks have some common sense...
