And none of these people is Kenny from The Cosby Show


It started out, innocently enough, when I asked Letitia, "So who is that colored fella on the cover of Rolling Stone?" [that's a joke, y'all] or something like that. I've always been confused about the difference between T.I. and T. Pain, and I didn't understand which one of them was Li'l Wayne. So Letitia drew me this helpful chart. I wouldn't have thought to include The Game, but Letitia is evidently annoyed that we've (allegedly) had five conversations about him and I continue to claim I've never heard of him.

As you can see, she went on to illuminate the difference between Nelly, Nellie Furtado and Kelis. [Kelis is the one who wore a green wedding dress!] But we have to give Liz Lemon some credit -- she is the one who stopped me from pronouncing it "Shah-millionaire."

As for the remaining lacunae in our knowledge, Letitia eventually looked up T. Pain on Wikipedia, but if you can provide us with the name of Houston's answer to crunk, we would be most obliged.

  1. It's a joke. Maybe I didn't make that clear enough. I was making fun of myself for being so out-of-touch.

  6. Houston's answer to crunk is chopped and screwed! Love your blog and this colored person got your joke! LOL! It's funny to me that colored is bad, but person of color is not, isn't it basically the same? I mean minus the history of the word of course. :)
