Bad Guys vs. Good Guys, Part 1

To: Friends, Neighbors, and Acquaintances
From: CDP

If you happen to overhear my three-year-old son discussing "the bad black guy", note that he is referring to Darth Vader, not to Barack Obama. Thank you.

A note to my neighbors circa 1984:

If you heard me as a child refer to a similar bad black man, I meant B.A. Baracus of the A-Team. Also, his first name was Bad, as in Bad Attitude, so it wasn't racist at all, it was just proper nomenclature.

OK - I'll trust you on this one.

enc said...

Understood.

FranIAm said...

Phew! Very relieved!

DCup said...

Good thing! I mean, you wouldn't want someone to mistake him for Republican!

CDP said...

Pistols--I love it when a comment comes together.

Mathman--thanks

enc--duly noted

Fran--he also talks about the bad white men (Storm Troopers of course)

Dcup--bite your tongue

Ha ha haha.

Mr. T. could so kick Darth Vader's ass.

CDP said...

Beckeye--I pity that Vader fool if he tries to mess with B.A. Darth Vader even DREAM about kicking Mr. T's ass, he better wake up and apologize.

Sounds like your son could teach my dad a thing or two.

CDP said...

Lady--ha ha!

Hey, if you live in my neighborhood, you hear that comment all the time.

I'll believe you, but I had a family member who, when she was very small, used to loudly point out random black people, much to everyone's shame.

Gnugs said...

Ah.. so THAT'S why people have children... ;)

CDP said...

Michaele--ha!

WendyB--that's hilarious. I have a young sister who used to yell "fag" all the time...she loved flags, and pronounced "flag" as "fag", so every time we'd see a flag, she'd scream "fag". I was 25 at the time and living in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, which just so happens to be a place where many gay men vacation. Sometimes, we had some splainin to do.

gnugs--exactly, they are a constant source of entertainment.
