SSShhhhhh! I'm busy knocking off my side piece or jumpoff!!!

I guess the life of a professional athlete leaves you with a lot of time on your hands.  You definitely train and go to practice, but once that is done, you are left to your own devices.  If you have you head on straight, you make sure your body can recover from the brutal pounding you take in practice and in games.

Some players take ice baths to help stimulate recovery faster.  Your body is a temple that you want to be able to operate at peak performance.  Jumping out of windows like you are Superman is not going to help.

aguars WR Kassim Osgood had to jump for his life on Monday night when he leapt out of a second-floor window to escape a armed intruder who attacked him and a 19-year-old Jaguars cheerleader, according to police.

this is just like the window I used to jump from...

Okay…I don’t want to minimize what happened, but a second story window is about ten feet off the ground.  He didn’t jump from a ten story window, just ten feet.  Growing up, I used to have to do that all the time, as I had to sneak into my girlfriends room occasionally without being seen.

The Boston Herald gives some details about the alleged attacker

Julian Armond Bartletto, 20, of the 10500 block of Running Oak Court has been arrested on charges of aggravated battery, false imprisonment, armed robbery, burglary and violation of an injunction, police said. He was booked into the Duval County jail ineligible for bail, according to jail records.

Second issue is that Kassim, you are thirty.  Now, I am not an age NAZI, since love doesn’t measure age in the equation.  But, what are you doing with a girl fresh out of high school?  You are a professional athlete, with thirsty hoes,  groupies are available everywhere.

She is pretty dec Kassim....

Osgood was watching television late Monday night with Mackenzie Rae Putnal when the armed intruder, Putnal’s ex-boyfriend, entered wielding a gun. The intruder pistol-whipped Osgood in the head after pulling Putnal by her hair and hitting her with the gun and his fists.

Putnal escaped to her parents’ home downstairs and grabbed a gun. Putnal exchanged fire with the intruder but shots from both guns missed.

Okay, I will be the first to admit that I want a woman who is down for gangster ish like this.  Having the wherewithal to absorb some beating, then escape to get the piece and fire off some caps trying to hit dude is cause for me to give you dap, Mackenzie.  Even more amazing is in the details.  The Herald continues

By the time it was over, police said the armed intruder had traded gunfire with the woman after sticking a gun to her head, saying, “What did that football player say to his girlfriend, ’It’s a good day to die,’ ” misquoting ex-Florida Gator Chris Rainey’s recent text message to a former girlfriend after an arrest.

The fact that she was mentally tough to take some beating, and the psychological torture that her ex attempted to inflict… Pro Football Weekly picks up the story…

Osgood jammed a chair under the door and jumped out a window to the lawn below. He ran to a neighbor’s house to call police. Osgood sustained minor bruises during the attack and while fleeing.

In the words of Riley Freeman, that is a real b*&$# move…you left your girl.

Kassim, I guess we have to add your name to the list now...

How are you just going to leave her like that?  Plus, you don’t have a cell phone that you could have used to call the police from the house and made sure your jump-off was okay?  I mean, you are leaving her to fire back and defend herself!  But, on the other hand, you are proving that women are equal to men.  No patriarchal rhetoric here!  It’s okay for you to bring home the bacon and fire the guns in the house.  N.O.W. would be proud… The Herald gives a little more light to the story than PFW, since they are more concerned with the fantasy aspect of the story. (I am bet that Osgood is benched or probably chilling on the FA wire in your league)

Mackenzie Rae Putnal and Osgood, 30, were watching television in a second-floor game room just before 11:15 p.m. when a man walked in with his face covered with a plastic bag and pointed a gun at them. Exclaiming that “I can’t believe you’re with that guy,” he pulled Putnal around the room by her hair and hit her with gun and fists before hitting Osgood in the head with the weapon too, the arrest report said.

I wonder what ex was referring to, his age, or the fact that outside of special teams, he is not that good?  Maybe Kassim cost him a victory in fantasy football…the dude was talking ish about Kassim though….

The gunman took the woman’s cell phone and tackled her when she tried to flee, holding the gun to her head as well as Osgood’s and also hitting her dog several times. When ordered to sit on the floor, Putnal escaped down a hall and leaped over the balcony to the floor below, the report said.

The gunman ran after her, so Osgood jammed a chair under the game room door handle and jumped out a window to the lawn below, running to a neighbor’s house to call police. Meanwhile, Bartletto and Putnal confronted each other downstairs with guns. The woman targeted him with her laser sight before both shot at each other and missed.

I gotta again give dap to the parents for having the laser sight, but how do you miss then?  Sometimes a higher force is looking out for fools.  Plus, this is a girl you might want to have in the foxhole.  Notice the story doesn’t mention her bruises or any injury, but we know that Kassim got lumped up?  She jumped out the window too to the ground below.  I wonder do her parents know that a thirty year old man is beating the coochie up of their nineteen year old daughter?

“He’s fine,” Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. “I’m aware of it. I really can’t comment on that whole deal. He’s doing OK.”

Osgood is in his first year with the Jaguars after signing as a free agent this past offseason. He has made three Pro Bowls as a special-teams player — all with the Chargers — and has a 24-yard TD catch this season.

Maybe this is why teams don’t allow or frown on relationships between players and cheerleaders.  I started this missive as a warning about jump-offs and side pieces.  That message is still an important one to carry on.  Steve McNair got caught up with a young tenderoni (shout out to Bobby Brown) and he had his life ended due to the drama surrounding her.  While the side piece was not the main culprit ( and in fact, she is the hero in the situation) in of the scenario, hanging out with her was.  Listen to Wu-Tang Kassim…protect your neck!

p.s.  This is not a small dude…

Osgood, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, caught the game-winning touchdown in the Jaguars’ home-opening win against the Denver Broncos. He played seven years for the San Diego Chargers before signing this year with the Jaguars.

Damn, the similarities are evident. Dude has a look in his eyes that say that he really doesn't care about the consequences.

This is some real Cain and Abel ish.  How do you kill your younger brother like that? I know they can be annoying, but to end his life is to say that you have no compassion for family.

Andrew Conley, Indiana teen who allegedly murdered brother, inspired by television show ‘Dexter’


Wednesday, September 15th 2010, 11:54 AM

He blamed it on “Dexter.”

A southern Indiana teen, who allegedly strangled his 10-year-old brother to death, said he was inspired by the television serial killer character Dexter.

How is a show about a killer inspiring?  What makes that something that you would want to emulate, especially on your family?

Andrew Conley pleaded guilty on Monday to killing his younger sibling, Conner, last November.

Police said after the gruesome murder, Conley — 17 years old at the time — packed his brother’s body into the trunk of his car and drove to his girlfriend’s house to watch a movie.

This is the cold blooded part.  He loaded the body in the truck like a sack of potatoes.  Then, concerned with his own hedonistic needs, he makes the booty call to snuggle and get some action, while watching a movie.  Now that you have plead guilty, the only snuggling you are going to do is when Bubba is braining your hair, getting you ready for the D@#* down you get in prison.  You seem a little frail.  I hope you are pumping iron.

The teen told police that he identified with Dexter, played by Michael C. Hall, in the Showtime television series about a police blood-spatter analyst who is also a serial killer.

Hall won a Golden Globe for the character, but the show has been criticized for being too violent by the Parents Television Council.

“I felt like I had to,” said Conley, who lives in the small town of Rising Sun.

According to ABC, he compared the urge to kill with a hungry person craving a hamburger, and said he fantasized about killing people since he was in the eighth grade.

This is a Hawkins burger. This is something to fantacize about. the killing? Not so much... Yes, that it Pastrami and a hot link on top as well...See, the things dreams are made of. Dream of killing this gigantic burger are normal and okay

How do you start having fantasies of death of others in the 8th grade?  What were you watching as a kid?

Police said on the morning of Conner’s murder Conley told authorities that he also contemplated killing his sleeping father.

According to The Associated Press, prosecutors plan on seeking a sentence of life in prison without parole.

Conley cannot face the death penalty because he was under 18 when the crime was committed. Defense attorneys are supposed to argue that Conley was insane at the time of the murder.

This isn’t the first murder tied to “Dexter.” In 2008, a 29-year-old Canadian filmmaker, Mark Twitchell, was charged with murdering a man based on a storyline from the show.

Damn, son, get it together.  What you see in the movies and TV does not have to be mimicked.

See, you already know how to punk the Niners DB's, so it should be easy for you in the Bay...

We need you out here in Oakland to put the offense back among the leaders.  You can also teach Hey Ba-baby how to be a number one reciever in the NFL.

UPDATE: Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times got word from a source close to T.J. Houshmandzadeh that the free agent WR has narrowed his choices down to two teams: the Redskins and the Raiders.

Seems like we might have a resolution on this one soon.

You already have your 40 million guaranteed by the Seattle Seahawks, so this should be about fit and playing time.  The resurrection of the Raiders is a ride you do not want to miss.  The fans are passionate out here and if you are part of turning it around, you will never have to take your wallet out again in this town.

Get a ride before it's gone! (Or you have to ride after a bunch of other dudes....)

On Saturday, we made note of four teams that had been in trade discussions regarding Houshmandzadeh when he was still in the employ of the Seattle Seahawks, as well as the possibility of a signing by the Oakland Raiders or Washington Redskins. Now that he’s been cut, one would expect that those four teams — the Arizona CardinalsMinnesota Vikings,New York Jets and San Diego Chargers — may take a closer look.

We’ve also been hearing some chatter on the St. Louis Rams as a possible destination, although the fit with coach Steve Spagnuolo’s philosophies might not be the greatest, considering Houshmandzadeh’s personality.

Expect some quick movement on this once the waiver claims are sorted out on Sunday.

They were just giving out slabs of meat...

Napa Valley Lamb Company… Sometimes, the best is just a little salt, pepper and lime juice.

Food, wine and good company makes for an interesting afternoon. On a bright and sunny Sunday, several hundred people made their way to the Lamb Jam.

This was a great way to spend some time tasting lamb and some inventive ways to enjoy it. Because it was the first annual, the crowds were low, making it easy to navigate around the Ft. Mason hanger

Fort Mason has some great views....

Fort Mason is also the same venue for Beerfest, which is much more crowded and crazy. The food was spectacular. The one complaint is that it seemed a little safe by the cooks. The common theme with lamb seemed to be a Mediterranean feel. If you want to stand out, you have to break off the beaten path.

Is this really the best of 2010? Then that says we had more downturn than just the economy....

You just won the steak knives…well at least you have your job.

If you have never seen Glengarry Glen Ross, then you hate yourself…

The sell job here by Maxim gets the phone slammed down on them

The prizes are spelled out by Alec Baldwin’s  character representing the wishes of the home office:

  • First place is a Cadillac El Dorado.
  • Second place is a set of steak knives.
  • Third place is “You’re fired.”

Because who in the Hell are they (being Maxim)  catering to?  They clearly are not catering to men that I know.  The fact that Katy Perry is on the top is criminal and deserves some sort of punishment.  In my office, they (the selection committee) are clearly fired, but even if she was second, I might be able to stomach it more.  But, she is number one, and that is a tantamount to aligning ideologically with the Nazis.

Here’s the Top 20 according to Maxim’s Hot 100 List:

20. Olivia Wilde
19. Bar Rafaeli
18. Christina Aguilera
17. Leighton Meester
16. Selita Ebanks
15. Amanda Bynes
14. Scarlett Johnasson
13. Amber Heard
12. Audrina Patridge
11. Eva Mendes
10. Marisa Miller
9. Kim Kardashian
8. Olivia Munn
7. Elisabetta Canalis
6. Rihanna
5. Megan Fox
4. Blake Lively
3. Zoe Saldana
2. Brooklyn Decker
1. Katy Perry

Now,  I give holy hell to some of the woman on the list, (5-head Rihanna to name one…) but there are too many names that I think of before I get to Katy Perry.  I am not a Kim Kardashian apologist.  But, she isn’t above Katy Perry?

Real or fake, I would saddle up and ride...

Here is another one that I don’t get, but illustrates why we are too old for maxim.  Number four is Blake Lively.  I didn’t know who she really was and I did some reading on her.

So you like the jean shorts look...

Now, I guess because I don’t watch Gossip Girl, I wouldn’t know who she is.  But, where is Christina Hendricks, who we already discussed, or Zoe Saldana?

The look that let's you know you are all good, or the man (or woman) who hit the lotto.

Or, Andy Roddick’s wife KILLS Katy Perry in a straight up comparative calculus.

Roddick is a lucky man....The one reason to get SI....

This doesn’t even have my personal favorite in the top 20, Halle Berry

Hair length doesn't matter for Ms. Berry

Talk amongst yourselves but with lists like this, I am glad that our tastes have matured.  The hit of the day that will not be there tomorrow is the thinking that gets you caught up.  The ability to see farther into the future will help you make better decisions.  You know that or man AP will have tons of woman on his page that would make you feel sorry for Katy Perry having to compete against that beauty.  But, I guess it is a rite of passage for a man to put away the toys of youth.  With choices like the ones Maxim makes, it becomes easier with each passing day.

P.S.  I haven’t even mentioned Eva Mendes, who Ronin would definitely throw up on the list higher.

Just let it are doing us no favors holding the clothes on...

You are about to be tased....

You got what was coming to you. Whatever made you think this was a good idea, I bet you reconsidered that now....

This is a clear sign that fools never learn.  Remember when Andrew Meyer disrupted the Kerry rally and got tased?

don't hate people making money...

His line led to riches….

I can get behind the idea of this comic

Didnt this dumb@ss learn anything?…Remember Don’t tase me Bro?  Well he has been remixed with Hammer, since Hammer is for the children…but really, children…do not run on the field, and you will not be get tased…

Report: Teen wanted dad’s OK news services

Before 17-year-old Steve Consalvi ran onto the field at Citizen’s Bank Park on Monday, where he was Tasered by a police officer, the teenager reportedly called his father for permission to do so. “He said, ‘Dad, can I run on the field? I said, ‘I don’t think you should, son,'” Wayne Consalvi told the Philadelphia Daily News of the conversation he had with his son. “This would be a once in a lifetime experience!” Steve Consalvi replied to his father, according to the newspaper.

First, if you have to call your dad to do something, then you should not do it.  Plus, as a Dad, saying you don’t think so is not strong enough.  Ultimately, you blame the son, but the father could have solved all this just by pointing out that the idea is stupid and you forbid him to do it.

Second, if he did it after you tell him not to, you can wash your hands of the entire matter.  Right now, you look like a parent who is a little too lax on the rules.

Wayne Consalvi told the newspaper that his son was not drinking and he wasn’t on drugs. Steve Consalvi is “a real good student, heading to Penn State,” his father told the Philadelphia Daily News. The father also told the newspaper that his son didn’t run onto the field as a result of a dare or bet, either. “I don’t recommend running on the field, but I don’t think they should have Tased him at all,” he told the newspaper. The Phillies and Philadelphia police are investigating whether a police officer’s use of a Taser to apprehend Steve Consalvi was an appropriate use of force.

Hell yes, it was an appropriate use of a taser.  Stay off the field and you will not get tazered.  How about this one.  I recommend not getting tasered and by that I mean stay off the field.  Should they have just tackled him and whooped his @ss?  Oscar Grant needed an investigation.  Rodney King needed an investigation.  This needs a commendation.  More fools that run on the field, or think that it is a lifetime experience need a lifetime adjustment experience.  A Tazer can cause that.  I bet that he will not run onto any more fields.  But, the taser is necessary to prevent others from thinking that this is okay.  Remember the Royals coach who got attacked by the fan?  How can a father in any right mind think that this is okay.  If they shot him, I would have been fine with that too, even though that is excessive.  Maybe just an old school beat down works.  But, if YOU STAY OFF THE FIELD, THIS WILL NOT HAPPENED TO YOU!

Lt. Frank Vanore, a police spokesman, says Commissioner Charles Ramsey reviewed the tape and felt the officer had acted within the department’s guidelines, which allow officers to use Tasers to arrest fleeing suspects. Vanore says internal affairs is still investigating. Ramsey told KYW Radio in Philadelphia that he supported the officer’s decision to use a Taser. “It was inappropriate for him to be out there on the field,” Ramsey said. “Unless I read something to the contrary, that officer acted appropriately. I support him 100 percent.” Consalvi, wearing a baseball cap, red T-shirt and khaki shorts, hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield, eluding two security officers in the bottom of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals. One officer used a Taser and the fan went down in a heap. Several Phillies placed gloves over their faces and appeared to be stifling laughter at the wild scene. Phillies spokeswomen Bonnie Clark said the police department is investigating the matter and discussing with the team whether using the stun gun was appropriate. The team said it’s the first time a Taser has been used by police to apprehend a spectator who ran onto the field. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Won’t start none, won’t be none….Words to live by…

UPDATE My new favorite Don’t tase me Bro! video

Don't worry, I am about to call. You don't have to wait much longer...

The people finally get one right.  Megan Fox and her alien looking face is not on the top any more.  She never deserved to be there in the first place.  Discuss.

Mad Men’ pinup Christina Hendricks landed the cover of May’s Esquire, even though she looks more like Julianne Moore than her Joan Holloway character.

Inside the married starlet offers her advice to men, saying, ‘No man should be on Facebook. It’s an invasion of everyone’s privacy. I really cannot stand it.’

She landed the cover by winning “Best-Looking Woman In America,” with over 30% of the 10,000 women surveyed picking her over Megan Fox and model Adriana Lima.

I don't like watermelon, but I would be at the ready to lick up the juices

People, please…Adriana Lima is not American, but is hot enough, I can understand why you are willing to let that one go.

Plus, she hates facebook.  You know you had me at that….

Thanks for being a true solider in the fight...

(SALEM, Ore.) – The sad news has been confirmed. Jack Herer, author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes and renowned around the world for hemp activism, has died at 11:17 a.m. today, in Eugene, Oregon.

Pre internet, The Emperor Wears No Clothes was the ish.  If you wanted to run a legalization argument and didn’t have this book, you were doing yourself a disservice.  The number of rounds won because of this book had to be close to triple digits.  We ran it as an affirmative and we argued it as a counterplan on the negative.

Great book with solid arguments and a diversity of sources.

Jack Herer suffered a heart attack last September just after speaking on stage at the Portland HempStalk festival. The last seven months have proven to be a huge challenge to the man, with several health issues making his recovery complicated.

Jack Herer’s health has been poor lately, this last week there have been reports of the severity, and an outpouring of prayers on his behalf.

“It’s shocking news, even after these last seven, trying months,” said Paul Stanford, THCF Executive Director.

“Jack Herer has been a good friend and associate of mine for over 30 years. I was there when he had the heart attack at our Hempstalk festival and I know he wouldn’t appreciate the quality of life he’s endured these last months. Still he will be greatly missed. I honor his memory.”

“No other single person has done more to educate people all across the world about industrial hemp and marijuana as Jack Herer. His book is translated into a dozen different languages, it’s a bestseller in Germany,” added Stanford.

“The Hempstalk stage will forever be the Jack Herer Memorial stage. And, a Memorial is planned to be built where he fell that day,” Stanford said.

“His legacy will continue to inspire and encourage for generations to come.”

His wiki page does a very good job in examining who the man was

Jack Herer (June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010) was an American cannabis activist and the author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes, a book which has been used in efforts to decriminalize cannabis.

A former Goldwater Republican, Herer was a pro-cannabis (aka, marijuana) and hemp activist. He wrote two books, the aforementioned The Emperor Wears No Clothes and Grass. There has also been a documentary made about his life called, The Emperor of Hemp. He believed that the cannabis sativa plant should be decriminalized because it has been shown to be a renewable source of fuel, food, and medicine, and can be grown in virtually any part of the world, and that the U.S. government deliberately hides the proof of this. He devoted his life to the support of cannabis, hemp and marijuana.

A specific strain of cannabis[1] has been named after Jack Herer in honor of his work. This strain has won several awards, including the 7th High Times Cannabis Cup. Jack Herer was also introduced to the Counterculture Hall of Fame at the 16th Cannabis Cup in recognition of his first book.[2]

Herer ran for United States President twice, in 1988 (1,949 votes) and 1992 (3,875 votes) as the Grassroots Party candidate.

In July 2000, Herer suffered a minor heart attack and a major stroke, resulting in difficulties speaking and moving the right side of his body.[3] Herer mostly recovered, and claimed in May 2004 that treatment with the amanita muscaria, a psychoactive mushroom was the “secret”.[4]

On September 12, 2009 Herer suffered another heart attack while backstage at the Hempstalk Festival in Portland, Oregon.[5] He spent nearly a month in critical condition in a Portland hospital, including several days in a medically induced coma. He was discharged to another facility on October 13, 2009. He is “waking up and gazing appropriately when someone is talking… but he is not really communicating in any way.”[6] He died aged 70 on April 15, 2010 in Eugene, Oregon, from complications related to the September 2009 heart attack.[7][8

Thanks for the tireless fighting...

So, if you lean that way, go out and roll one up and thank Jack, because in a lot of states, you have the freedom to…

If I had to choose my way to go out, it wouldn't be the worst way to end it...

This is a warning to all the people I know.  Large breasts can KILL!

Mum’s giant chest suffocated boyfriend during sex

By Douglas Wight, 04/04/2010

BUSTY Claire Smedley’s boyfriend nearly DIED when she suffocated him with her enormous boobs during sex.

The mum-of-three, who has 40LL breasts, panicked when she lifted them up to find her lover Steven had stopped breathing.

Claire, 27, boasts the second biggest bust in Britain* with her boobs weighing over a stone EACH.

Today in an exclusive video interview she tells how Steven usually loved being smothered by them.

I think that the kids today call that motorboating…but lets see.

“This time, he started flailing around a bit, but I assumed it was because he was so excited, so I kept going,” she said.

“A few minutes later I noticed he’d stopped moving.” By then, sales assistant Steven, also 27, was still and appeared to not be breathing.

Claire said: “I was panicking and just about to call 999 when thankfully he started to come round. He was really woozy, like he was in a trance. Then he sort of coughed and sat up. I was so relieved.”

Startled Steven – who did not want to be photographed – added: “I did think my time had come.

In case you were wondering, that is not me.  I would have been photographed and I would have had a shirt made, like I survived 40LL, or something to that effect.

“I tried to slap her on her arm to get her to stop and get off me but I think she misread the signals.

“The next thing I knew she was sitting over me asking if I was all right. I must have blacked out. It was pretty hair-raising.”

Lucky Steven survived his ordeal, but the pair’s relationship did not and they split three months ago.

Claire, from Blackpool, said: “After that he went off sex.”

Wow.  First, how do you “go off sex?”  I know I “go off sex” when my girlfriend cuts me off, but that is why I try not to find myself in those types of situations.

Second, That is almost like saying seeing something gay can turn you gay.  Anyone with a clue knows that isn’t something that you choose, it chooses you.  It is biological and while it may have been a near death experience, there is no way that would turn me off sex.  In fact, it would insure that I tried to get more.  Maybe next time he motorboats, he needs one of these.

You clearly need to have the proper gear.

She is now single and is planning a career in modelling to turn her giant boobs into genuine assets.

She added: “People think they’re public property. Even in a supermarket people come up asking if they can touch them.

“But if they can earn me a few pounds maybe some good will come out of them.”

*40M Donna Jones, 26, of Milton Keynes, has Britain’s biggest bust.

So, she is going to turn to porn?  I wouldn’t get mad at her, that is just using what you have…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Why is the MAN always messin with the brothas?


You know that this is our ish here at Too Old.  We relate and have lived through this show and the trials and tribulations that they got through.

The Boondocks is an American animated series created by Aaron McGruder for the [adult swim] programming block of Turner Broadcasting‘s Cartoon Network, based upon McGruder’s comic strip of the same name. The Boondocks is a social satire of American culture and race relations (or stereotypes in the world), revolving around the lives of the Freeman family: ten-year-old Huey, his younger brother, eight-year-old Riley, and their grandfather, Robert. The series is produced by Rebel Base and has finished airing its second season on [adult swim]. Season three is currently in production, with all animation pre-production and production work being produced at JM Animation in Seoul, Korea[citation needed].

The Boondocks takes place in the same place and time frame as its comic counterpart. The Freeman family, having recently moved from the South Side of Chicago, Illinois to the peaceful, fictional Chicago suburb of Woodcrest, Illinois (compared to Crestwood) find different ways to cope with this acute change in setting as well as the drastically different suburban cultures and lifestyles to which they are exposed. The perspective offered by this mixture of cultures, lifestyles, and races provides for much of the comedy in this series.

The satire premiered on November 6, 2005. The 15-episode first season ended on March 19, 2006. The second season premiered on October 8, 2007 and was, according to McGruder’s MySpace page, pared to 13 episodes; however, 15 episodes were created. Series creator Aaron McGruder states that a third season is currently under production due to air May 2, 2010.[1]

A leaked trailer reveals that Season Three will be the final season of the series

Why the man always trying to take the tools of the revolution?  All methods and means of protest do not have to be violent.  The intellectual approach is the one that causes the most fear because once you win the hearts and minds of the people, the battle is over.  The humor is so nuanced that it can cause you think about the society at large, as when they lampoon the rapper lifestyle and it’s impact on society.  That is when you can have real change…

This is what change looks like...regardless of the political view
