    Default A Hilariously Good Point He Has...

    I got this in an e-mail just a minute ago for a goofy friend of mine and it was too good to not pass on...

    "...By the way- just because it's been stuck in my fucking head for the past 4 days- I want all of you to start humming "Word Up" by Cameo. Don't even act like you don't know what I'm talking about. I've included lyrics to the first verse and chorus to help you along:

    Your pretty ladies around the world
    Got a weird thing to show you
    So tell all the boys and girls
    Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
    we're about to go down
    And you know just what to do
    Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
    Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
    Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
    Come on baby tell me what's the word

    Word up everybody says
    When you hear the call you've got to get it underway
    Word up it's the code word
    No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard

    What exactly is Word-Up the code word for? An I'd like to point out to the members of cameo- "word up" is two words- therefore it should be "code words" plural. Thus rendering the last two lines of the chorus obsolete. I also think this was the first time in hip-hop music to use the phrase "Wave your hands in the air like you don't care". It was also the last time in hip-hop music to use the phrase "do your dance quick mamma". But- I think I'm going to start saying it all the time. Such as in the following scenario:

    Shakwanka Lathreese - "Welcuna Burger Kang, m'elp ya?"
    Me- "Yeah- I'll take a Junior western bacon chee, large onion rings, and a small coke."
    Shakwanka Lathreese- "That'll be foe ny-teen, pull round toda secon winduh"
    Me- "Thank you, do your dance quick mamma."

    See. It seems to fit into everyday casual conversation."

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    "Word up" is a slang phrase usually used as an exclamation or interjection. Though quite current, its origins are in black English of the 1980's. It has a few different meanings such as a general greeting, more or less equivalent to "Hello!" or "What's happening?" "What's the word?", "What's up?" very much like the ubiquitous "Whassup?". Word up can also mean "Listen up!" or "Pay attention!". Often, it is an expression of approval, admiration or appreciation - and yes; it can mean "Yes, you're so right!", "I agree!" said when someone has stated the truth or said something profound or meaningful.

    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton
