Pictionary

21 07 2008

Pictionary is the dumbest fucking game on the face of the planet. To prepare to host a game, you take the following steps:

  1. Be white
  2. Call up your douchiest, most stereotypically sweater-around-the-neck white friends and invite them over
  3. Procure refreshments. Depending on the type of white person you are, you can opt for wine and cheese or booze and chips
  4. Set up the board, easel, and whatever other shit you’ll need
  5. Apologize to God for being born

Once all your friends arrive, you can start playing. One asshole stands up and starts drawing a picture on the board, while the rest of the assholes yell, point, jump up and down, and throw poop in an attempt to figure out what concept the ‘artist’ is trying to illustrate. This is why I always laugh when racist white people call black people monkeys – clearly they’ve never seen a bunch of 25 – 35 year old yuppies of their own race playing Pictionary.

Figure 1: Case in point

Ordinarily I don’t give a shit about what white people like to do in their spare time. Unfortunately, every now and again a black person (like me, for example) will be forced to play this insufferable goddamn game. This usually happens during ‘ice-breaker’ events at work, conferences, and other places where a.) the game is sprung on you by surprise and b.) there’s no way to escape.

When you put together a game of interracial Pictionary in an environment that demands political correctness, you are asking for trouble. This is because you’re mixing white people who like Pictionary (and have inherently dry personalities) and black people (who have more…colorful…personalities). Trash talking, inappropriate jokes, etc. are key components of black competitive behavior, and it’s very difficult for us to turn off. Bad things happen when one or more of those black people can’t (or won’t) turn off their ‘color’, such as the incident that occurred when I played Pictionary at work once.

I forget what concept the woman was trying to draw, but being under time pressure and having people yelling and screaming at her, she wound up hastily and incorrectly drawing a stick figure that looked like this:

Figure 2: …..

It look less than 1/10th of a second for me to see the completed stick figure and scream: BLACK DUDE!

The stunned silence, followed immediately by loud-but-somewhat-nervous laughter, was the most intensely awkward moment of my professional career. I was ever after known as the craziest man in the office (even though there was already plenty of other evidence supporting that title).

Fuck Pictionary.

lmao, i can totally relate to this. i’m always making inappropo jokes around white ppl, and they kinda go heh-heh.
i hate having to re-realize that i’m black. it makes me uncomfortable to have someone make me feel my color, if you know what i mean.

I would yell out “black dude” too. What’s wrong with that? If she took the time to color in the face, then it must mean the subject is a person of color, no?

…an equally off-kilter story:

Cranium. The smart people game; i.e. the nerdy version of Trivial Pursuit.

I love my big brother and his friends, however, they are the non-drinking, non partying gospel choir members from Washington U in stl…meaning that they don’t curse, they probably are all virgins, and they probably have never seen the inside of a club, let alone a liquor store.

Being that I’m a nerd who likes to drink and trash talk, I get over there expecting that there’s some closeted partyers with booze on a saturday night. Nope. Just Cranium, cookies and milk. Mind you, these ARE black people.

Lets just say by the end of the night, I had them unwound and cursing back at me…lol.

Leave it up to me to taint the last goody two-shoes gracing a college campus, days before their graduation.

Ok, maybe im just slow, but if “black dude/man/person” wasn’t what she wanted to get across with that picture, what was?

21 07 2008
Sylph

Was it blackhead?

Pictionary is bullshit. Scrabble is where it’s at. You can make someone cry off a double word score. Trivial Pursuit is a close runnerup and teaches you that some people aren’t as booksmart as they want you to believe.

WTF IS THIS??

I LOVE PICTIONARY!!!!

You know damn well Black people love Pictionary. The only games they love more (that aren’t Dominoes and Spades) are Scrabble and Taboo.

HAHA. I hate board games. If I am forced to witness another game of Risk, i will kill myself. That and monopoly are the longest fucking games ever in the history of games. I hate them all, including Cranium. Fuck Disney Scene It for its bias ass questions. Okay, i’m done now.

Chaotic Diva,
are you from stl? that’s my hometown. I live in the same part of town as Wash U. But generally speaking, Wash U kids are all boring and dry.

21 07 2008
chaoticdiva

@ Kara… No, I’m from Michigan. I went to pre-college with several ppl that went to Wash U. I almost went to SLU, but instead was blessed with a deep-seated hatred for my parents for forcing me to forfeit scholarships there because they wanted me closer to home for personal reasons.

…you know, I’m surprised I’m not addicted to any hard substances (caffeine and shoes don’t count).

…scrabble is my shit though.

21 07 2008
Kara S.

@ Chaotic Diva,
Just so you know, SLU is hella racist. So, i’m not sure if you would’ve liked it. But people at SLU aren’t as boring as those lames at Wash U.

N.S

I feel you on this one! Somehow I always end up being the token at an event, party, etc., and I have to make myself think like a white person with those types of games. White people are a peculiar bunch…

Puck Fictionary! It is not so much the game, but who you play with, I find most games in the professional setting to be tense and “un-fun” anyway, but get me and my girls together and we’ll make any game ignorantly awesome!

While I love Pictionary, I too, have a hard time trying to keepy my niggary in check when around the non blacks. . . I find myself having to explain phrases like “outside kids” (i.e. Jesse Jackson got outside kids) and why I read “black” magazines and books when “we’re all the same.”
Fuuuuck you.
You should invite them over for a game of Bid or some Spades and see how that works out. . .

If she took the time to color in the face, then it must mean the subject is a person of color, no?

haha. You have a point there.

I hate Pictionary because its a cheap ass game. Why should I pay extra money for some paper and pencils, and then maybe, what, an hourglass? Especially since I work at an office. That mess is already free ….

I had an awkward Charades moment at work. Luckily, lawyers drink a lot, so I don’t know if anyone remembers. It’s better if they didn’t.

Haha. White people and pictionary. It is funny. Especially if they are Christians. Imagine having to keep inner black person and your inner heathen from exploding during a church summit. Are you laughing?

Sister Toldja

I’ve had some awkward moments playing games. Once, for some reason, some friends and I (drunkenly) played some game where we had to confess something and I admitted that I used to want to be culturally Jewish. I felt like I was gonna be ex-communicated from the race.

Taboo is the best game ever, but someone always has to grab my hand because I cant stop myself from gesturing.

21 07 2008

pictionary + alcohol = feral..
it gets ruder as the time goes..

what was she drawing anyway if it wasn’t a black man?

Joel, I don’t think he was trying to make a racial joke. I think thats what he HONESTLY thought she was drawing and he blurted it out. Are you gonna take your frustrations on your co-workers out on all of Negronia? Cause thats wack.

Chris- honest, how many of the White girls in the office started giving you “special smiles” after that? LOL!

21 07 2008
riz

I love how none of us can imagine any other possible answer to the drawing… I guess it’s because we’re missing Step 1 (which makes me LOL).

BTW, I’m sure that some of your white secretaries tried to slip you their numbers after the stunned silence cleared, right?

21 07 2008
Bajan Girl

Pictionary, Taboo, Scatagories… all good games… what can make them truly great is consuming copious amounts of alcohol during (can’t do before because you need to be marginally sober to explain what to do)… case in point; the following were hints given during a drunken game of taboo:

Hint: she done smoked her knee caps off but we still saying NUH UH…
Answer: Whitney Houston

Hint: Katt Williams can’t be his friend cause he is too short and always gets smacked in the face with his dick…
Answer: Shaq

Hint: insect good at vocabulary…
Answer: Spelling Bee

Alcohol makes everything better… (or at least we think so while in the haze)

ST’s the current angry woman. *hi-fives*

I think I hate the game so much is because I usually get stuck with the one person on the team who can’t draw for shit. It never fails.

Figure 2 is inspiring neverending giggles right now. Wouldn’t be surprised to see that description used for a police lineup.

21 07 2008

Scategories and Taboo are my shit, though. But only when playing with my fellow black folk. Hilarious!

@ST, nothin wrong with Jews! The neighborhood that I live in here has a huge Hasidic Jewish population. I admit, they seem to really enjoy the Sabbath. Sometimes, I want to just go up and join them when they’re out walking, ya know, see what’s poppin.

That said…..AHAHAHA!! You seem like you had a really awkward Board game moment, too.

Fuck, I’m turning in my black skin then because I do ❤ Pictionary. I’m also a fan of Taboo, Scattergories, and Trivial Pursuit, but that’s neither here nor there. I agree though, those games can’t be played in mixed company (not necessarily racial, but more about personality types) because there are bound to be awkward moments and people getting butt hurt by the competitive atmosphere.

For what it’s worth, my husband is white and we BOTH thought that drawing was supposed to be a black guy.

Pictionary is kinda fun…..I dont love the game because it takes alot of energy and materials to play. But if im invited, i will go because i love people screaming at shit that is of no importance in life.

I actually love Apples to Apples. And so do all my black friends. Its fun, easy, only involves cards (no paper, pen, eraser, nothing) and nothing but cards. A simple Noun on each card you hold, and you pick one card from your hand that you think best illustrates the adjective on that card that was put in the middle of the table. A different person every turn will be the judge to decide which noun fits best with the adjective card. example, Say the judge picks an adjective card that reads ‘dirty’. they set down the card, and wait for every person to put down a card from their hand that works best with “dirty”. The judge picks up the cards and trys to decide which card works best, and this is where is gets VERY FUNNY. Lets say the noun cards in the judges hand are “toilet”, “California”, “Cancer”, “The Devil”, and “Britney Spears”. The judge will then put down each card that they think doesnt quite fit “Dirty”, and Now the Judge decides that the “Britney Spears” card wins because the judge thinks she is the dirtiest. Whoever put the “Britney Spears” card down, WINS, and they get to keep the “Dirty” Adjective card. First person with 7 Adjective cards WINS the entire game! (Note, the Britney Spears card, in my opinion is the trump card, no matter the adjective card, whether it be “elegant”, “funny”, “desperate” or “beautiful”, the Britney spears card will always work, whether its Irony or technically.)

I suggest everyone go out right now and buy that damn game.

Apples to Apples is the sh!t.

chhhh revoke my blackness cause I fell in love with Pictionary!! (ok don’t revoke it, i love not gettin sunburnt lol) Monopoly and Taboo are the shit too… i love the cussin, the stupidest things ppl call out while trying to guess stuff, the almost breaking of friendships when ppl lose and things get heated lol… but its still crazy fun.

Shit when I read Scategories, i almost spit out my drink… in Trinidad, scat is hall slang for masturbation… so just now I was like Scategories? WTF? What these white ppl really gettin on wid tho, till I caught myself lol.

Last time I played Taboo at somebody’s house we got put out at the end for keeping too much noise… last time I played Monopoly a fight broke out LOL…somebody get vex and turn over the board and all hell broke loose

Isnt figure 2 a black man? What the hell else could it be?

Pictionary is still mothafucking better than GOTDAMN CHARADES!!!!!! I HATE CHARADES WITH ALL MY SOUL! Charades makes me hate white people and the first time I saw bourghie black people at my school play that game with mothafucking enthusiasm I knew I was in hell. HELL I TELL YOU, HELL!!

21 07 2008

Oh i realize why I mothafucking hate taboo. B/C its just dressed what would happen if you could talk in charades but not move. Gah! any game that makes you look like a fool and then have people guess what type of fool you look like is the pits. But its possibly the people I have to play with. Never played these games with anyone but white and/or come to find out the wackest of wack minorities

The love shown these games on this board makes me hate all of you

first thing in the morning too. gah!

WNBT: Cranium is cool except for that dam Clay shit!!!! Need more time for that!

I ve seen Taboo cause major fights in relationships… We always do GUYS vs GALS (GUYS UNDEFEATED 10-0)… It always gets ugly when you know you are giving good clues and your partners aren’t getting it… You start stomping your feet and pouting like a little kid because you can not believe they are not getting it!!!

Good Morning,

“Hellur” everybody! (practices for atl…lol)

Anyways, the last time I played taboo was with a bunch of drunken relatives.

hahaha. Anybody that knows my family knows that cards/board games + alcohol = someone standing on the table/deafening loudness/harmonious laughter of annoyance and joy from sober people/etc…

I would still have to say the drunken highlight of any card/board game experience was watching my cousin and his friends play poker during new years. His friend was so drunk, he felt that every hand he had was a winner (mind you, these are gamblers). It got to the point he stood up in his chair arguing people down that 3 of a kind was better than a straight flush. It was hilarious.

ishouldbeworking

@ 4m_no_2_dc — “i don’t know how to play spades or dominoes…. and I’m a black girl(who went to a hbcu nonetheless) !!!!!” I feel you. People still look at me sideways when I don’t sit down at the spades/dominos table. Now let there be some Taboo, Scategories or Scrabble going down then I’m all in. I can’t stand Pictionary and I only play Monopoly with my boyfriend. Phase 10 is confusing to me and I’m a nerd so I guess that’s why the word games are more appealing to me.

Taboo in “mixed” company is always a bad idea. When me and my cousins play among ourselves it’s abosolute hilarity but when we play with/against our moms/aunts it’s just wrong either on an inappropriate or boring way.

Congratulations to me I’ve only been reading/lurking on this blog for like three weeks now and actually doing the job that I get paid for.

Morning, I literally laughed out loud when reading this! I don’t really play Pictionary, but Taboo is the game. We get a bit too serious though. Once my sister and I were at a friends house playing Taboo with her family (g-ma, aunts and uncles and all). So my friend is giving the clues and my sister is on her team. She says “What we had at our last party” staring at my sister to get it and she yells out “DILDOS!” The room got so quiet you could hear a pin drop and her face flushed from embarrassment. It wasn’t the right answer, and why would you blurt that out in front of her family. Needless to say, we were hella embarrassed…finally, the night went on but to this day they still look at her like she’s crazy!

I like Pictionary, although I agree that it really depends on the people/environment you play with/in.

Apples to Apples is the shit and best played with people with strange thought processes:

Does anyone else love Catchphrase as much as I do? I own that game.

Ok, I had to stop reading the comments to puc in my two cents. Pictonary is the white version of charades. You dont need no damn paper and pen to draw that shit out. If you cant act it out and make a fool of yourself, then it worth pickin. I was tellin a co worker that I was recently stranded waiting for AAA on 95, and me and my boyfriend started to play charades. She asked where did we get the paper and pen from. I said you dont need paper and pen for charades..and I just know I had the craziest ‘wtf’ face. But um, Phase 10, Uno and Spades are MY SHIT!!!

And what was the lady tryin to convey with that drawing? Because I get nothing other than black dude.

and i would like to agree with Vita – Monopoly is that SHIT, you gotta play on a night where everyone is stayin in because at my house we take that seriously. My boyfriend wants to buy the new one with the debit card because Im always stealing from the bank..LMAO

Hi folks…Haven’t played Pictionary in forever. And since my dad was a minister, my mom bought the ‘Christian’ version of it when we were little. One time, I accidentally drew the pictures with a permanant marker instead of a washable one. And that was that…

Oh, a few weeks ago, I was playing Connect Four for shots of Patron. Let’s just say that a few bad games and it was a wrap…

I’ve gotten better at spades with age. When I was younger, I never understood the concept of “Joker Joker Deuce Deuce”, so I would renige and damn near get my ass kicked…

Pictionary, Scrabble, Othello, Scene It and Monopoly Here and Now top the list for the board games while bid whist, Texas hold’em and the college staple of Spades hold it down for the card games. As for the drawing, I can see why you blurted out ‘black dude’; the question is was that the answer?

4m_no_2_dc – we are kindred spirits. I am a Black woman who went to an HBCU, and I don’t know how to play Spades or Dominoes, either. All I know is that Black people give me the stank eye at that awkward, inevitable moment when this fun fact is revealed.

Janus, you don’t want to know what “scat” means in America. The name of the game is actually SCATTERgories…as in scattered categories.

I want to know how the fuck I got through twenty-x years of life without knowing what Apples to Apples is! That game sounds awesome.

Pictionary used to be an actual tv show but they knew the deal cause I don’t think they ever had black folks on it. But then again I wouldn’t really know cause I didn’t watch it.

I don’t play spades and I really don’t like Taboo either. I wish I knew people that played Uno or Scrabble. As soon as that damn Taboo or a spades game starts going I’m usually left to playing my lonesome game of “how many free drinks can I consume before it’s time to sober up and drive home”

My dad is a big fan of Chess. He is a big old, nerdy engineer. He taught me how to play it when I was a little girl, but he says that my [undiagnosed] ADD was a detriment. Apparently, I would do wonderfully for the first 15 minutes and then intentionally throw the game because I could hear I Dream of Jeannie coming on in the next room.

The only other people super into Chess in my family are lowlives. I have this one reeeeeealllly crazy cousin who we practically throw a party for if he stays out of prison for a whole year who can beat ANYBODY in chess. My guess is that a lot of chess is played in prison.

I like to drink when i play poker but i have to be careful…

if i play in a tournament and do well i could be playing for 6 hours straight… 6 hours plus free drinks is a nasty combo… i have had up to 15 gin and tonics during these games… thankfully at casinos they are water down… but when i play in my local tournaments at bars i can barely walk at the end…

Good work, sista.

Uno and Jenga are also very fun. I want to try this Apples game now!

Jen, you ain’t the only one who doesn’t know how to play spades or dominoes. But I curse my momma for sending me to Howard without knowing these life skills. I’ve played each once, and they were very fun. Actually, some White folks tried to teach me dominoes and it was the most racially awkward moment of my life. I felt like I needed to get up and teach them how to make green bean cassarole or how to steal land in retaliation.

…My mom AND grandma can cook the HELL outta some Green Bean Casserole. We eat it all during the holidays… I didn’t know until last year that it was a “White” thing, I swear!

And whoever said something about snacks and food at an event are so damn right. I remember about 5 years ago, at a PR internship at a Library, I had to help with a Book signing/Fundraising event. The book was a cookbook by a local restaurateur and the event promised “food cooked from the cookbook!”. I actually skipped dinner because there were some good ass recipes in that book.

Of course, when I get there, there was some Pumpkin Cheesecake, Cookies and some Chips and salsa. My black ass was thinking, “Where is the chicken?”

I was so busy running frantically around doing stuff, so I didn’t have time to think about it, and I got to take the leftover cookies and cheesecake back to my dorm and shared with folks. But I was never so happy to see a Taco Bell in my entire life when it was over.

Of course, when I told folks about the lack of food, everyone was like, “You know white folks don’t know how to have no food at an event!”.

Aww, I like all these silly games (Taboo and Scattergories, yeah!). Like others have said, there’s nothing inherently wrong with these games…it’s just not comfortable playing them in mixed settings. When under the pressure of time, you don’t want it to be exposed how your filthy mind really works and makes associations. Basically, you’re afraid your inner Shabooty will come out.

Speaking of coming out…I have seen someone accidentally outed in a game of Taboo…talk about awkward…

I thought I was the only Black person who didn’t know how to play Spades. I’m too scared that if I say this around a group of Blacks, I’ll be left by the side of the road somewhere, so whenever they try and start a game up, I conveniently disappear until they’re teamed up and I’m the odd man out.

i WILL, however, beat some azz in Taboo and Pictionary. I thought these were Black ppl games; I guess we played them so much I assumed the YT’s wouldn’t want anything to do with a game played by ‘coloreds’, lol. I even had Pictionary Jr. which had stupid topics for kids to draw…but that didn’t last long after ‘sum1’ got upset and shot the timer against the wall…

21 07 2008

great drinking game:

Beep

You sit in a group preferrably a circle, and pick someone to start counting, starting at one (Going clockwise) The next persons says 2 and so on until you get to the number 7….The object of the game is to count as far as you can without saying 7, multiples of 7 and double numbers. Insted of saying 7, 11, 14, 21, 22…. you say beep. Where it get’s complicated is after tom says “beep” in place of seven, the counting order reverses, so the person who said “6” before tom said “beep” will now say “8”.
If you say 7, 11, 14, 21, 22 etc, aloud instead of saying beep, you have to take a shot. If you delay the counting you have to take a shot, if you count out of turn, you have to take a shot.

I played a game similiar to catch one catch all…it was called manhunt. I played it for the first time in Suitland MD, and when they tag you, they BEAT YOUR ASS. everyone plays, mothers, fathers, grandmas who can walk/run/jump. And yea, you cant trust anybody in that game. It was a few elements of hide and go get it/hide and freak in that game, as this one guy kept tryna get me to hide with him in the bushes.

I was never too into card games. My family is BIGTIME into pinochle, but I never took the time to learn and I don’t know how to play Spades either. The only card games I remember playing growing up were UNO (of course, and I can recall some games that went on for HOURS), 500, Bullshit, and Slapjack (and some folks did used to come out with bloody knuckles).

I hate every black person who plays spades. You emotional muggafuggas.

Uno can lead to monopoly related homicides as well.

I reiterate CHARADES IS HELL. worst game ever invented. And its for 2520s, whoever said it was a black game gets their card revoked. The only people I”ve ever heard of having it at a party and/or enjoying it were 2520s. And then the one horrible day I found myself in a group of bourghies. ***shudders***

Pennies in the dark is where you have a group of people, and give them a set number of pennies (usually 1 more than the number of people in the group. So if you have 6 people in the group, you hand out 7 pennies to each person.) Find a place to drop the pennies so you will hear the sound of the pennies hitting the bottom of the object. Turn the lights off, and everyone asks a question, with two people going twice. When you turn the lights on, you count how many pennies each person has.
Its a way of finding out who has done what, in the most childish of way. I remember one question was like ‘have you ever had sex with someone in this room” and we were all teammates, with one couple there. But all these pennies dropped and it was like ‘WHOA, wtf have yall being doin??’

questions:

One person starts off the game by asking anyone in the group a question. The person they pick can be anyone ( tom or jane..etc.)I start off he game by asking jane a question, Jane can’t answer the question she has to ask another person a DIFFERENT question. It should keep going until someone answers that question or the question asking id delayed by too much silence, then you have to take a shot!

Well, one good thing about YTs is that they can turn anything into a drinking game! Luckily, I like to drink, so this works out well.

Prank calls and texts? Man, I thought that was a lost art. Those of you old enough to remember the days before Caller ID, will remember how fun it used to “crank call” people… especially at slumber parties.

Two dudes I grew up with pulled the best prank calls ever. They came up with this crazy voice they could both do and had people believe it was a real person. “Henry” was talking to 3 different girls and had beef with two different dudes. One of them used to try and come around the way to catch him there.

Is the drunk dial considered to be the new crank call? Because even if you know who it is, they’re still annoying as hell to receive, and funny as hell to make.

I was on vacation a couple months ago and I meant to send a text that said, “I’m still at the hotel.” But since I had been sippin Daiquiris by the pool, I accidentally sent the text, “I’m still at the vodka.” (We’d been talking about our favorites Vodkas– mines Kettel One.)…. My friend thought it was a joke, AND she was annoyed.

Now Roy Wood Jr, Rickey Smiley and Nephew Tommy make some funny ass prank calls, BUT Lucius Tate was da bessssss back in the day…He pretty much prank called all of some small town in Texas back in the 70s, and pretty much pissed all of them off: (NSFW due to some language):

@ST: “*Raises glass*

Good work, sista.”

I don’t discriminate on skin color…I’ll take a nice, college educated guy with good manners and a good job and that’s a decent jumping off point. Luckily he’s not middle America, saltine white though.

@riz “BTW, is the new iPhone really all that?”

YES!!! I had the old school BB for a couple of years and resisted switching service providers for the iPhone, but it’s pretty damn nice. I’ve only had mine for a week and managed to use most of the features already, including GPS. IMO, one improvement over the BB is that web pages load more true to form-looking on the iPhone. Also, I don’t know if this is just a problem I had, but when I deleted email from my BB, this didn’t reflect in my inbox when I’d later check on my computer. And, in keeping in Apple tradition, I think it’s generally a way more user friendly phone than the BB.

Knat… One time when I used to wait tables, I was near some 2025’s and they were surveying the room. One says to the other “Its getting kinda dark in here” and my stupid azz was perplexed… it was the same dark as usual to me. Then I re-looked around and there were HELLA black ppl in the spot. It was dark b/c there were HELLA black ppl in there! SMH. I would have never caught it as a racist comment b.c THEY have their own communication system too… lol.

Got that right.. I live on the first floor and my window faces the front door of my building.. I will stand and watch you ringing my bell and still not answer the door if I don’t know you or were not expecting you… and in the event that you make it into the building I will turn off the tv and cut the lights and pretend no one is there till you leave… same thing for the phone… I will hit the “ignore” button in a hot minute on the cell, or let the house phone ring…

21 07 2008

I don’t like 2520; it involves numbers, which reminds me of math, and I hate math – except when I correctly figure out how much 60% off really means. I prefer names like ‘paleface’, ‘them’, or ‘White People’.

ayo, I had a white lady do that to me in a bathroom at my friend’s bar mitzvah. She was like, the only non-Jew in the place and she was this girl’s mother who I had actually been friends with since kindergarten. This bitch was hating on her child’s friend. My friend happened to be using the bathroom at the time and her mother, as soon as I walked in, says into her phone: I’m gonna go ahead and leave, it’s getting dark in here”. And I was like, wtf? And then thought about it and was like..oh. And then my friend came out of a stall and said, “I’m sorry, my mom’s a bitch” Then we promptly started cracking up

There’s a Swahili term for not just white people but their historical context: Oyimbo. I was at a show once and the group (some cats I know) got the whole crowd chanting it…keep in mind the shaw was at Towson State and it was 4 to 1 Black:White ratio.

The iphone is well worth every penny. There are literally hundreds of applications available to download many of them free or like a dollar, so you can customize the content to match you lifestyle. The old iphones have updates available to get all of the new content, but the processing speed is not quite as fast as the new version. The newer version is also a little lighter in weight.

I bought iphones for my entire staff last week. No one has done any work since.

I was riding Moving Africans Raipidly Through Atlanta (hey, the 2520’s made up that term long ago, don’t shoot the messenger) the other day and I saw this disheveled looking 2520 walking into the train. I was like, He looks like he smells…Pleeeeeeeease don’t sit by me. And of course, he comes to saddown by me. The odor didn’t hit me at first, but then it hit me like Queen Pen’s babydaddy on a bad day. Smelling like mother earth and father ass. So, me and about three other people who were sitting behind me promptly get up and move to the back of the train. And he had the nerve to look at us like we talked about his mama. Muhfucka…

For years I was a counselor/director for artsy fartsy kid groups and camps, so I overdosed on games like Questions, Never Have I Ever, Murderer, Indian Chief(sorry Chris), and other crap that I don’t even know if it had a name or not. Improv games are dorky but fun too.

@ TomatoHead

Most of us have been in a meeting and wished we could be the HULK. Just start smashing stuff and then when it’s over say, “You guys know you can’t get me angry.”

PLus it’s 2008 everyone is going green and he’s been there.

Tim Roth does play a great villian. Rob Roy. Hoodlum.

Redeeming quality about the Hulk: he learned to control his anger.

Maybe the Hulk should be a spokesperson for some sort of elaborate marketing campaign for recycling wherein he tackles people Terry Tate style for not living sustainable lifestyles.

I love anything that Edward Norton is in. Primal Fear. American History X. The Italian Job. I didn’t see that Spike Lee movie he was in though. Was that good?

21 07 2008

Oh… and another dope part in the hulk is when he rips the police car in half and bangs the hell outta the ugly guy.
ooooh… and when he strangled him with that chain!

Last year, I talked my friends into forming a Field Day team when one of the local weekly magazines here in Atlanta was having it. We were one of two all black teams. Our team’s name was Blaxploitation Allstars. I was there to have fun and for an excuse to act like a kid again. But the 2520s were taking it way too seriously. First, the in dodgeball (2 teams), these people played full time in a “league.” I didn’t even know they had those. How you gonna hit me in the forehead with a Nerf ball and that shit hurts? Then, they CHEATED in the chicken wing eating contest (sponsored by Hooters). C’mon, the black team shoulda had that on lock. I busted my ass…twice…in the four legged race (3 people, 4 legs). The pics are on Facebook if you feel like laughing at me.

21 07 2008

the first movie I ever saw him in was fight club. This is the reason I can;t take him serious. He has this stupid look on his face, much like tyra when she is smiling with her eyes.

I think the scene in fight club where he went apeshit on his boss is what’s stuck in my head

21 07 2008

Fight club is one of my most favorite movies eva.

21 07 2008

I was mad when he was strangling the ugly guy and the girl told him to STOP!!
I’m getting my ass beat trying to protect you and you talkin bout stop, What The Fuck you mean STOP…uuugghhh!!

Sister Toldja, I’m loving your photo. You don’t look angry at all though. You bitches ain’t slick. Its ANGRY black woman, not MYSTERIOUSLY SEXY black woman!

21 07 2008
Yonnie3k

Okay. I know I said that I love everything Ed Norton is in, but I take that back. I don’t like Fight Club. But it has nothing to do with him. I don’t like when movies aren’t in chronological order. I don’t like Pulp Fiction either.

21 07 2008

fight club is one of my favoritest too. I was so damn confused about who was, who, was tyler a alter ego, was he real. I had to watch it a few times to get it.

21 07 2008

Fight Club was stupid and how do you beat your self up and not know… then start shooting at yourself…

I can’t believe there are actually people out there that don’t like Fight club….that’s just wrong…..

WIth that said, I must have always played with different types of people then you guys have. Every game, or pretty close to, I have ever played has included massive amounts of shit talking.

21 07 2008

The movie just shows what it’s like when someone suffers from Muliple Personality Disorders.

The fight scenes were awesome!

*smiles*

thanks Ne!!!

By the way…here’s an annoying thing I absolutely hate: when people call you and ask for favors, or they ask you to go to the casino with them, etc…(in regards to spending money), yet those mofo’s owe you a couple hundred.

I swear I wanted to jump across the phone and bitchslap my cousin for asking me to pick her up some stuff from my job…she still owes me!!!

21 07 2008
chaoticdiva

@ ayo…yea its supposed to be a froggie!

21 07 2008

NEVER loan money to family members and expect them to pay you back.

Just use it as a shut the fuck up fee!

Pulp Fiction sucked to and that scene with Ving Rhames scarred me for life…

…I ain’t been in a pawn shop since. smh

21 07 2008
Yonnie3k

Ayo, I love movies about gangs, drugs, and heists: Blow, City of God, Paid In Full (don’t hate), The Italian Job, The Score, the one with Sonny and Colodgeral, and the greasy chick from Belly – can’t think of the name right now, etc. Other than that, I like the (black) classics, The Color Purple, etc.

Yeah, the rule is, never loan what you can’t afford to give away. It is easier said than done, I know. I’m guilty of breaking it at least once.

So chaoticdiva, are you gonna remind them that they owe you? That’s always awkward.

21 07 2008

New Jack City… & Juice?

Love Juice and Boys In The Hood. Like New Jack City – it just never grabbed me like that.

You guys are gonna make me go home and watch Bronx Tale tonight.

Did anyone watch Black Men Revealed last night on BET? I don’t usually watch BET (EBP/SBP requisite disclaimer), but I love the 2 Live Stews.

‘Fresh’ was my movie back in the day.

I LOVE me some Bronx tale. Best scene ever is when those Bikers trash the local bar, teasing the employees. Then Sonny tells them to leave, and they try to front him off. In response, he has his people lock the doors and then he’s all, “Now yous can’t leave”. BAD ASS. And the looks on their faces? Loves it.

And my Mama always cracks up at the kid who owes Calogero money and keeps running from him like, “Uh, my Grandma’s sick, I gotta get to her…” and that always brings a smile to my face.

I adore that movie. Especially those dudes singing “I Only Have Eyes For You” in the school hallway. That scene is lovely.

…speaking of my inner fatness from a few hours ago, Today is National Junk Food Day.

…so I took a quiz about the junk food, and explain to me why my fat ass got a perfect score?

and lol @ ‘hush” money…lol. Too bad she runs her damn mouth too much. Always wants to call me little girl, yet she always needs money (even though she makes 20x as much as I do.

SMH @ black people.

I am in love with heist movies as well Yonnie. I also love any movie about the mob: The Godfather, Goodfellas, Casino, Donnie Brasco…my mom let me watch all of those when I was young to keep me from thinking violence was “romantic” or “cool”. They really scarred me for life in terms of blood and gore. Especially the scene in Casino Joe Pesci stabs that guy in the neck with a pen. Gross and double gross.

I am so glad to know that I am not the only black chick that can’t play spades and bid whist lol! But I can play pinochle like my damn life depended on it.

*That reminds me… I need to go an thank my father for this hella useful life skill.*

I can’t play bid whist or spades or pinochle. My family was never into card games, it was always marathon games of Monopoly, Trouble, or The Game of Life.

I hear that on heist movies. One of my personal favorites is “The Heist” w/ Gene Hackman and Delroy Lindo. Not a movie that many people know about but definitely worth a netflix

Got it! This one is officially my favorite – hands down. Tell me again how you trouble picking black women? Even as a black woman myself, I find this incomprehensible.

Aaack a typo! It should read – “how you HAVE trouble picking UP black women…” My apologies.

Years ago during my first year of business school I played Pictionary with a bunch of my black classmates. We were having a great time – too good of a time because the white neighbors called the cops! Instead of having the decency to knock on the door and asking us to keep it down they called the police. How messed up is that? Calling the police over a game of Pictionary!

FatGuy

A) Pictionary is best with people who don’t speak the same primary language!
B) You’re a moron and that’s why you ebarrassed yourself. You shouldn’t blame your shortcomings on being black. You can’t control yourself. Recognize that and move on.
C) If a white person had been inappropriate, they’d have been the next subject of this blog. Bottom line- you’re a crybaby.
D) The blog is lame. I thought it might be cool, but it is just you being a crybaby and telling yourself it’s a racial thing. it isn’t. You’re just a pussy.

17 08 2009
Matt

Honestly as soon as I saw the pick thats what I thought but your thought on white people having less personality than a black person is wrong anyone can have a good one just as much as either of the two can have a bland one its the person that makes it not the race.
