Y’all know what I’m talkin’ bout. The TV sets with like 2 feet of body in the back. It can’t be moved any closer to the wall, can’t be slid neatly onto a bookshelf and sure as hell can’t be carried under one arm. You gotta cradle the joint with two arms and try to keep it balanced. Don’t tip it the wrong way or it’s gonna end up crashing to the floor.
Get rid of those big booty Judy TV sets. If not for yourself, do it for your friends and family who come over to help you move. You’ll stand around sippin a glass of Red Kool-Aid while Pookie & nem try to get that super dooper joint down the stairs safely, so you can move that big butt heffa to your new crib.
Sell them. Donate them. Just get them out the house. It’s 2009 folks. Step up to flat screens.

Obama Gets a Half-Smoke at Ben’s Chili Bowl – Washington Post
By Amy Argetsinger
For years, a sign at U Street’s landmark Ben’s Chili Bowl carried this message:
“Who eats free at Ben’s: Bill Cosby. No one else.”
During the 2008 race, they changed it: “Who eats free at Ben’s: Bill Cosby. The Obama Family.” And today, the president-elect finally investigated the offer.
Barack Obama arrived at the fast-food joint with D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty shortly before 1 p.m. He posed with diners and staff, then returned to the counter to collect his order: a chili half-smoke and sweet tea, plus cheese fries and water for the mayor. They dined together at a two-person table.
Asked by a member of the traveling press pool about the significance of his visit, Obama said, “It means I’m going to get a hot dog.”
And as for Ben’s generous offer… As promised, they didn’t try to charge him. Obama handed over a $20 bill anyway for what would have been a roughly $12 meal, reports our colleague N.C. Aizenman. Did he want change, the counterman asked. “No, we’re straight,” said the future prez.
Now all I gotta do is get my man some wings and mumbo sauce and it’ll be official.
