Yo, yo, yo, what up my homeslices? Now to expound on something completely different.
When is someone going to give the conservatives a break?
First, Representative Doug Lamborn gets lambasted for telling it like it is...raked over the coals for likening Mr. Obama to a tar baby.
Now it's good ol' Jimmy Lakey, talk radio show host, being drawn and quartered because of a listener's comment that Michelle Obama resembles Zira Cornelius of The Planet of the Apes, and another listener's observation that Mrs. Obama reminds them of Chewbacca.
Well, I know the Ow-You-Hurt-My-Feelings crowd will storm and shout for an apologetic restoration of justice, because they always do - whether deserving of an apology or not (most often not).
But I hope neither Lakey nor KRDO caves...because this is still the United States of America, and Americans still enjoy the freedom of speech.
It's become HELLA easy for minority groups to point their fingers at conservative white people, and accuse them of racism and bigotry every time they get butt-hurt (which is ALL OF THE TIME). But badgering folks to own up to alleged wrongs when indeed they're in the right is just WRONG.
Did that make sense?
Don't care: since this is coming from a conservative black chick, there's nothing racist about what I'm about to say, and I don't give a damn whose ass gets chapped as a result of my saying so.
The truth is that Mrs. Obama resembles Zira Cornelius AND Chewbacca...and there's a perfectly good explanation as to why.
Wookies hail from the planet Kashyyyk, which is right around the quantum-space corner from the Planet of the Apes. The tourism industry on both planets is healthy and brisk, in large part owing to their close proximity, as well as their interplanetary resemblance. Indeed, their many similarities are likely what led them to intermingle, and one can easily discern their mutual resemblance.
Case in point:
|Dr. Zaius, Planet of the Apes|
These two could be brothers.
The photo at the start of this post is actually Michelle Obama's grandmother, Memawmubacca; the proud offspring of precisely such an interplanetary coupling...commonly referred to as a Chewlatto.
Memaw and Michelle are the spittin' image of each other.
So, sorry to burst this most recent bigot bubble, but Mrs. Obama cannot help the way that she looks.
She was born that way.
