Maybe Mom Got a Head Wound in Iraq, or Some­thing

Lit­tle kid: Hey, mom, look! You can see the moon!
Ghet­to mom: Shut up! You can’t see no moon when the sun out. Sit down ‘fore I bust yo lit­tle ass!
Lit­tle kid: But I can see the moon!
Nice old­er la­dy to kid: You’re right, hon­ey. You can see the moon when the sun is out. The moon is bright be­cause of the sun.
Kid to mom: See, I told you I could see the moon?
Ghet­to mom: That bitch lyin’!

You Might As Well Be Walk­ing on the Sun

Short thug: Nig­ga, stars come in all sizes. Just ’cause some are big­ger don’t mean they are clos­er.
Tall thug: Fuck it, they don’t! The sun’s the biggest star be­cause that moth­er­fuck­er’s the clos­est. (oth­er thugs mur­mur in agree­ment)
Short thug: What about the moon, then? It looks big­ger than any of them bitch­es.
Tall thug: Be­cause it’s clos­er! Damn!
Short thug: But it ain’t big­ger than a moth­er­fuck­ing star!
Ran­dom thug: Ain’t no­body know how big a star is, man.
Short thug, ex­as­per­at­ed: How many of you nig­gas smok­ing your own shit? (they fall silent) God­damn! Well, that ex­plains a whole fuck­ing lot!
