'Honky' Doesn't Have the Same RingYou ever just get into a roll at work and all of a sudden something jumps out of your mouth that's just a little too real? Do you keep going and gently steer away from the topic or blush and sputter apologies while you wait for the carpet to turn into a Sarlacc Pit and swallow you whole?
One thing's for damn sure: if you called somebody a 'nigga' at work, you probably weren't live on national television like Booker T here:
T gets 4 million bad motherfucker points for being all shiny and buff as hell, wearing gold tights and still making my testicles retract with the sound of his voice. He loses 3.5 million bad motherfucker points for dropping his head into his hands in shame, however. He still comes out ahead enough to be able to reach right through my computer screen and ask for my lunch money.
Do you think he was embarrassed because he called Hulk Hogan a racial slur period, or because he knew the Hulkasaurus was white and never flubbed the line at rehearsal?
