Seinfeld Moment: The Advanced Social History

True story, I ain't lyin':

"Sir, do you ever drink beer, wine or any alcohol?"

"Yeah, ma'am. . . . I ain't gon' even lie-- I do, but just beer, though."

"Got it. . .so, when you do, what kind of beer do you drink and about how much?"

"Usually, I just drink that Billy Dee. I'll get me a deuce deuce after work. Sometimes two."

(Here's the part where being a black woman who grew up in the '70's comes in handy.)

"Huh? Billy Dee. . Billy Dee. . . Billy Dee. . ..wait. . .Billy Dee as in
BILLY DEE WILLIAMS on the Colt 45 commercial?"

(Non-black people: refer to picture above. Black people born in the 70's: Don't get all bourgeois on me--you know exactly what I'm talking about.)
"So wait--you drink twenty-two ounce cans of Colt 45?"
Wo-ow. How funny is that?

"Yeah ma'am, that Billy Dee." 

(He is dead serious and not even picking up on my amusement.)

Yes, boys and girls. It's not a job, it's an adventure.
Wow. . . all this talk about Billy Dee Williams is inspiring me to pop me some popcorn and order Mahogany or Lady Sings the Blues on pay per view. But don't worry y'all--I won't be cracking open "that Billy Dee."

Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian - the original playa from The Empire Strikes Back.
(Don't hate the playa. Hate the force.)


  1. Or you could just Edward 40-Hands it with your SG-Alpha. I mean, I'm just sayin' ... G.A.W. or not.

  2. Oh my. You never have to worry about me participating in the Edward 40-Hands. Will leave that to the twenty-somethings, my dear!
