EB: Giving ’em the business!

Brain dumps from the original Bonehead.

Drinking the Kool-Aid.

Ok – I've got my 10-foot pole and my tap shoes and it's time to go do this thing.  I just watched what could possibly be one of the most distressing, disturbing videos I've ever seen in my life.  If you are easily offended, sensitive to profanity, or otherwise intolerant, I don't recommend you watch this video:

Spirit of Truth

If you decided not to that's cool too but the rest of this post might not make as much sense to you so you may want to just skip it and come back to hang later; but if you checked it out then let's roll…

Now, none of us are new here, right?  We've all made and heard enough jokes that we've probably developed a good sense for when someone's being genuine and when someone's just fucking around.  And that's what makes this video so genuinely frightening – this man isn't kidding!  He's not joshing or joking or pulling your leg.  He thinks he is giving testimony.  Did you get that loud and clear?  He thinks he is giving testimony.    

Dawg – I'm really glad you brought the pole for this one!

Fa' really real!  Notice his choice of words…  Listen to his voice…  Look at his haircut for fuck's sake!!  This man is serious (delirious?).  When you can speak with conviction and make statements like:

  • Bitch, I'm flowin' straight from the survival scroll!
  • Is you down with that?  If you ain't down with that shut yo' goddamn ass up!

I think it's safe to say that "one of these kids is doing his own thing".  Don't be fooled by the funky soundtrack, there is nothing haphazard about this presentation; he is quoting George Clinton and the King James Bible both liberally and accurately.  No accidents.  The televangelist featured here is both ministering and, simultaneously, employing more 'motherfuckers' than Eddie Murphy in the early 80s. 

I know that for a long time I've been saying that a person's intentions should dictate the appropriate response to the words they say but in this video we may have reached the extreme condition at which this rule no longer applies.  Whatever the denomination of this man's faith is, it would be better served if he weren't preaching it!  If you can imagine using a fork to try and dig a ditch you'll get the idea – the effort may be noble and the intention admirable, but it's simply not the right tool for the job. 

What I can't help but wonder is how many times this kind of thing has happened because, in the history of the world, this surely can't be the first.  If that can be accepted as true, all as part of the fallibility of man and his feeble little flesh, then what other truths can we accept?  For instance, how can we possibly know that no other men along the way had gotten their signals crossed just as badly as this poor slob did?  What if that man was named Mohammed?  Moses?  Or even King James I of England?  If even the potential exists that this can be true, than how can anyone hope to know what to believe in?

The ball is in play.  Have fun with it…
