THE FIRST IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN AWARD GOES TO BERNIE MAC


Yes my dear fellow bloggers, Mr. Shadow has revamped his award previously known as the Fools and Fiends Award to the If I Only Had a Brain Award. Just think of the song by the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz and you get where I'm coming from.

Well the first recipient one of the so-called "Kings" of Comedy Bernie Mac for his for his lewd and totally inappropriate routine during a fundraiser for Barack Obama last week. I mean he was so bad that he was shouted down from the stage by the audience. That happens when your at a $3,200 a plate fundraiser and your purpose is to generate funds for the candidate you are supporting, i.e Obama.

I guess Bernie didn't realize this. You would think that with the world on watch practically every minute of every day on Obama that Bernie would have gone over his routine and made sure that it was done in a way that was tasteful and FUNNY. Bernie must have had a flashback to his Def Jam days and thought he was in a nightclub. Well thank a lot Bernie, for embarassing the hell out of us in front of the world with your pathetic and unfunny routine.

I guess that he was following in the footsteps of fellow "King" D.L. Hughely and who famously last year called the Rutgers Womens Basketball team "hoes" last year. Is this the way a King is supposed to behave? I think not! We are not amused! (Sorry I coulden't help it. I had to put a little British Queen humor there.)

Ms. Gina has a funny post on this sad affair over at her site.

So Bernie Mac you have truly earned this award: the inaugural "IF I Only Had A Brain Award." goes to you.

Bernie Mac should have taken into account his audience first and foremost. I thought that was some kind of unspoken rule. There is a time and place for everything. I think you chose wisely for you “If only I had a brain” award.

Thank you you for your kind words. I have a feeling that with all of the insanity going on, I will be giving this award out quite frequently.
