QOTD #52: Mt. Rushmore

Today’s Question:  This one comes directly from a conversation with one of my closest friends after watching the Heyman DVD – With all of the talk recently about Mt. Rushmores, who would you put as the 4 faces on your Mt. Rushmore of Wrestling Managers?

Yesterday’s Question:  Sticking with the humor for one more day…..What were your funniest 3 (in order) “Chappelle Show” skits?

This one got a ton of responses, with the expected ones being mentioned a lot. Some of the best comments……

Elmo Machete: It’s not even really that funny, but I’ll always have a soft spot for the “Blackzilla” sketch because I lost my virginity with that on in the background. To a black girl, actually. That makes me part black, right?

Adam “Colorado” Curry: Clayton Bigsby, Reparations, and the Niggar Family. HMs to Prince and the R. Kelly videos.

Not from the show, but the whole thing about what white people eat (What the F--- is juice?) from his stand-up might be the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

The “For what its worth” HBO special (or was it Showtime?). I would agree – his “grape drink” rant about the Sunny Delight commercials is probably as funny as anything on the show, but watch the skit below…..at about the 2:42 mark – when the kid says “O.J…..purple stuff…..we got Sunny D yeah!”…….

The brother really did want that purple stuff!

Lenny Vowels: “Buck Nasty, what can be said about your outfit that hasn’t been said about Afghanistan? It looks bombed out and depleted.”

That skit isn’t even in my top 3, but that’s still my favorite line in the history of the show.

There’s a section in the outtakes where Dave (as Silky Johnson) goes back and forth with Charlie Murphy and Patrice O’Neal worth the price of the DVD alone.

Devin Harris:
Everyone has already listed them all at this point so I won’t bother. A better question would be how did SNL miss out on this guy?

Good question. Especially when they have had Kenan Thompson all these years

I’m gonna go a little against the grain, and NOT mention Prince or Rick James – they were good, but I don’t think they were the best skits of the show. I’ll go with:

1) Piss On You
2) Pop Copy
3) Wayne Brady

… but it’s so hard to narrow it down. “Mad Real World” and “Clayton Bigsby” should be on there, too. Yes, my Top 3 should somehow encompass five entries.

I also think that Lil Jon should give all of his money to Dave Chappelle. If it weren’t for Dave, nobody would give a f--- about Lil Jon.

jobber123:Actual Rick James: Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and grind my feet on somebody’s couch like its something to do? Come on. I’ve got a little more sense than that.
Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Eddies couch.

Dave Chappelle actually made Rick James more relevant in the New Millenium than he ever could have possibly hoped – short of doing something stupid like a reality dating show with 20 skanks

npavlou22:You’ll get a bunch that are all the same: Rick James, Wayne Brady, Racial Draft, Making the Band, because they are all awesome.
But goddamn if Samuel Jackson Beer isn’t one of the funniest things I ever saw.

I figured I’d make it a numbers game, and go on a 3-2-1 point system (3 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, 1 for 3rd, etc.). My 3 faves being 
1. Rick James True Hollywood Stories – Maybe the funniest skit ever
2. Clayton Bigsby – Dave made “Cunnilingus Rice” a household phrase. Nuff said.
3.  The Mad Real World

Based on that, I would say it evened out about like I thought
1. Rick James – 32 points
2. Prince – 21
3. Clayton Bigsby – 15
4. Player Hater’s Ball -7
5. Wayne Brady – 5

A lot of people liked the Racial Draft, and Keepin it Real goes wrong (surprised the Mad Real World didnt place! Whats up with that????) but overall, its just fun to remember how much people just really dug the show in general 10 years later.
