It’s Mary’s birthday!
And guess what we’re having for dinner?
Funny how that works out, isn’t it? (Seriously, we are having ribs.)
The 1988 movie I’m Gonna Git You, Sucka! was a parody of the blaxploitation movies of the 1970’s. In the movie, Jack Spade (Keenen Ivory Wayans) enlists the help of John Slade (Bernie Casey) to help him get revenge on “Mr. Big.” Slade enlists the help of two of his old friends, Hammer (Isaac Hayes) and Slammer (Jim Brown), who are now running a rib place. Here’s the scene before Slade walks into the restaurant, with Chris Rock as a difficult customer.
Did you ever bruise a rib? I have. It’s a very uncomfortable experience, particularly breathing. And there’s no way to make it heal any faster; you just have to live with it until it gets better, which usually takes a week but feels like an eternity.
