The Lord's Prayer

Big Daddy's Rap

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.
-- Amen
Yo, Big Daddy upstairs,
You be chillin,
So be yo hood.
You be sayin it, I be doin it
In this here hood and yo's.
Gimme some eats,
And cut me some slack,
Sos I be doin it to dem dat diss me.
Don't be pushing me into no jive,
And keep dem Crips away.
'Cause you always be da Man.

-- Aaa-mén

-- "Tight, eh?"

"How about in Italy?" asks Dopey.
"Sorry, Dopey, none that I know of."
"Well, are there any dwarf nuns in the whole world?"
"No, Dopey, none in the whole world," says the Pontiff.
The other six dwarfs start laughing and chanting, "Dopey fucked a penguin! Dopey fucked a penguin!"

Pinocchio's girlfriend kept complaining about their less-than-satisfying sex life. "I keep getting slivers," she confided to her friends. Pinocchio finally got fed up and went to see his maker. "Geppetto, my man, I can't satisfy my girlfriend sexually. She keeps getting slivers in her pussy. Can you help me out?"
"Why, yes, I can!" exclaimed Geppetto and gave Pinocchio some sandpaper. "This ought to take care of it."
A few weeks later, Geppetto ran into Pinocchio. "How's it going with the girlfriend?" he asked.
"Girlfriend? Who needs a girlfriend when you got sandpaper?"

You Get What You Pay For

One day in the Garden of Eden, Adam calls out to God, "Lord, I have a problem!"
-- "What's the problem, Adam?"
-- "Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, but I'm just not happy."
-- "Why is that, Adam?", comes the reply from above.
-- "Lord, I am lonely."
-- "Well, Adam, in that case I have the perfect solution. I shall create a woman for you."
-- "What's a 'woman,' Lord?"
-- "This woman will be the most intelligent, sensitive, caring, and beautiful creature I have ever created. She will be so intelligent that she can figure out what you want before you want it. She will be so sensitive and caring that she will know your every mood and how to make you happy. Her beauty will rival that of the heavens and earth. She will unquestioningly care for your every need and desire. She will be the perfect companion for you."
-- "Sounds great," says Adam.
-- "She will be, but this is going to cost you, Adam."
-- "How much will this woman cost me, Lord?"
-- "She'll cost you your right arm, your right leg, an eye, an ear, and your left testicle."
Adam ponders this proposition for a long time and finally says, "That's a lot of body parts, Lord. Uh, what can I get for a rib?"
The rest, as they say, is history.

American Negroes want to claim golf champion Tiger Woods for themselves, as the hero who broke another color barrier for the blacks. But Woods describes himself as a "Cablinasian." This term combines the four racial groups in his blood: Caucasian, Black, American Indian, and Asian.

If Tiger Woods's mother is Thai and his father is black, does this make him a tycoon?

Castrating Chickenshit Editors

Matt Drudge, who puts together his outstanding website for newshounds, the "Drudge Report," summarized on April 11, 1997, how various editors handled the word "chickenshit." A day earlier, House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Texas) and Rep. David Obey (D-Wisconsin) had an exchange of words on the House floor. Here is a summary, with my comments in square brackets:

Boston Globe: During a debate on campaign finance, DeLay "erupted" as Obey displayed "an article from two years ago alleging that lobbyists had written legislation in DeLay's office." DeLay: "That's chicken shit." -- [Bravo, editor! Thanks for being honest!]

Washington Times: Obey raced over to DeLay and "poked a finger at him." DeLay then "shoved him back with both hands and could be heard in the gallery saying 'gutless chickenshit'." -- [Bravo, editor! Thanks for being honest!]

Roll Call: Quotes Obey, who says DeLay "poked me in the chest and called me a lying chicken-shit." -- [Bravo, editor! Thanks for being honest!]

Los Angeles Times: DeLay "directed a profanity" -- [Gutless editor! This leaves the readers uninformed.]

New York Times: "chicken droppings" -- [Gutless editor! Falsifying information! Lying to the readers!]

Philadelphia Inquirer: "chicken s-t" -- [Acceptable, as the readers can reconstruct the word shit.]

Wall Street Journal: "chicken (expletive)!" -- [Gutless editor! Was it chicken fucker? Chicken shit?]

USA Today: "chicken-." -- [Gutless editor! What's the suppressed word? Ass? Shit? Fucker?]

Washington Post: The two "engaged in animated discussion." -- [Gutless editor! Despicable coward!]

The gutless chickenshit editor of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel quoted Obey: "He put his finger firmly in my chest -- twice -- and said, 'You're a gutless chicken (expletive).' "

I have railed against such language castrations and dishonesty by gutless editors for years in Maledicta and the Monitor. It is a disgrace to see our "respected" major newspapers acting like hicktown rags whose editors worry about upsetting old ladies of either sex. Readers from other countries can't believe what silly little minds are running our media. Some papers are known for their prudery, such as The New York Times and the Milwaukee Urinal, with the Los Angeles Times not far behind. The Washington Post has become even more gutless than the N.Y. Times. The San Francisco Chronicle adopted a new policy in 1993 or 1994 to suppress even the hints it formerly gave to the readers (sh-t or a--hole) by either omitting "offensive" words or using "cute" equivalents, such as "Spaldings" (a trade name for sports equipment) for "balls." TIME magazine uses underscores -- such gutless a___________!

After Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Mike Royko died on April 29, the Associated Press quoted his long-time Chicago colleague, Irv Kupcinet, of the Sun-Times: "He expressed his mind without fear and did so no matter who he crossed and who he hurt." Nice job, Irv!

Mike Royko and I have/had a lot in common, I've been told many times, but we were not friends. See my "Open Letter" to him in Maledicta 10, pp. 243-244. -- R.I.P., brave fellow curmudgeon!

But you, Irv Kupcinet, you are a disgrace to journalism and spoil our memory of Royko with your illiterate English: it's "whom he crossed and whom he hurt," you schmuck!

Response to the Anti-women Riddles and Jokes
in the Preceding "Mother's Day Special Edition"

Marie wrote: "The woman-bashing jokes were quite enjoyable. I think that type of humor is actually healthy. It allows the sexes to vent their frustrations towards each other. I think that part what makes them so funny is being able to see yourself or your significant other in them. I know that I saw myself in a few of them. Some women are just so super-sensitive to that type of stuff. Why can't they just realize that they are like that?"

   As an aside, I predict that Marie will have a long and happy marriage, not only from the above but from another message: "When my husband is having a day of serious gastrointestinal distress I like to call him Trumpet Butt; and both times, during the last few months of pregnancy he dubbed me Moby Bitch, which pretty well sums up both my physical and psychological states at the time."

Anti-male Joke and Riddles
Submitted by a female viewer and analyzed by R.A.

Exchange between a teenage male heckler and a lesbian comedienne:
Teen: "Do you really think you can satisfy a woman more than I can?"
Comedienne: "You're sixteen and wear braces. What do you think?"

What's ten inches long and white?
-- Nothing.

Comment: This is actually an anti-whitey joke by blacks (first featured in Maledicta 7 [1983], p. 177), not a true anti-male riddle.

What's the difference between a golf ball and a G-spot?
-- A man will spend half an hour looking for a golf ball.

Comment: Not bad; deriding lazy wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am males.

Why do women fake orgasms?
-- Because men fake foreplay.

Comment: At first view, a clever tit-for-tat (or tit-for-twat), yet logically unsound. A woman can fake orgasm, but a man cannot fake foreplay: either he spends five to 30 minutes or more nuzzling her neck and other erogenous body parts in pre-penetration dilly-dallying, or he doesn't.

Why are women so bad at parallel parking?
-- From always being told that this   |-----------------------------------------------|   is ten inches.

Comment: Touché! Excellent, based on facts, and a slap at guys who exaggerate the length of their dicks. -- If I may digress: I do the opposite by warning a prospective copulatrix that I'm hung like a hamster, only 3 inches (7.62 cm). If she still wants me and later sees the real thang, she squeals with delight.

These are just the first examples of anti-male riddles submitted by a woman. Her guest editorship announced earlier did not materialize for various reasons. I invite more submissions of true anti-male wit, but not of converted "stupid" jokes that are used against various ethnic and racial groups and blondes.

Angry Females
Let's not forget that bashing the other sex is not done by males only. If you search the Net, you'll find extremely vicious anti-male web sites by hate-filled, bitter, castration-hungry females in the U.S., Great Britain and Germany, for example. There are also plenty of anti-male publications, especially zines. Here are a few titles from the latest Factsheet 5 #61 (April 1997), pp. 104-106: Angry Young Woman, Bitch, Bitter Critter, Drop Dead: The Zine of Lesbian Battering, Fuckability:0, Hag Rag, and Motherfuckin' Tittysuckin' Two-Balled Bitch.

Angry Negress Rights Real Good
The fellow who runs the hateful "White Power" web site receives much hateful e-mail, mainly from Negroes and Jews. Below follows a letter to him from a "respetable" female at the University of Southern California, reproduced verbatim. She does not indicate whether she's a student or a professor in the African-American Studies Department.

Dear honkies,
being an educatid respetable black female I find myself asking why I should even waste my time righting to your ignant inbred, trashy mutha phucking asses. You guys are nothing in this suciety except someone to go on talk shows and to be laughed at and ridiquled. What you need to do is go back to school and get more than 8th grade education and maybe you would realize how fucking stupit you really are. doesnt it really piss you off that you are the minority in this country? And just think its only going to get worse.
   Soon there wont be a master race because everyone will be mixed. even your little fucking cracker ass children will be marrying and fucking out of your arian race because they will have more intellgence and self respect than their own parents. I can understand why you are jealis of african american people though. Us women have the curly hair your stringy haird wives try and copy with rollers and the golden skin they lay in tanning beds to attain. And of course when it comes to men, well anyone knows how inferyor you are. and its not just the size, you just dont know what to do. I guess its because your used to fucking your hand, relatives, or any fucking farm animal that will do.

Enraged Wall Street Negroes
Shawn Collins, editor of Velocity NYC e-zine, reports in his issue No. 6 (1997) what happened to some white folks in New York City who e-mailed one racist joke or "Hooked on Ebonics" (see Quickies 3). At Morgan Stanley & Co. on Wall Street, their forwarded messages left a trail on the firm's network hard drive. Two black fellow employees, analysts Yolonda Owens and Edward Hutton, saw the joke and promptly filed a $30 million lawsuit contending that white co-workers traded "vile, racist E-mail." As a result of the lawsuit, all employees who had forwarded the message were suspended without pay.

Update from the Associated Press, 18 July 1997: U.S. District Court Judge Denise Cote in New York dismissed the $30 million lawsuit against the Wall Street firm, finding that a single racist e-mail message shared among white workers does not create a hostile work environment for the two black analysts.

Not to be outdone, "enraged black workers" at the Wall Street offices of Citibank filed a similar lawsuit. Upon announcement of this lawsuit, Citibank announced that three employees and one former employee were being investigated, and one of the three current workers is expected to be fired. After checking the network hard drive to trace the forwarded messages, it was revealed that eight vice presidents, three assistant vice presidents and ten lower-level workers had also sent or received the Ebonics e-mail.

Remember this nudge to whip out your wallet and order the Monitor?
"Have you ordered the Maledicta Monitor? Only 300 copies left.

That was over 5,000 hits ago. Two readers actually bought the Monitor! This unexpected influx of $20 almost made me delirious with delight -- I went to Burger King to celebrate and ordered double cheese, blowing 30¢ just like that!

Beggar to old Jewish lady: "Ma'am, I haven't eaten in four days!" -- "So force yourself!"

How did Willie Nelson get hit by a car?
-- He was playing on the road again.

(Editor's Note: The German title of Nelson's song "On the Road Again" is "Auf der Autobahn" [On the Autobahn], one of the dumbest translations I have seen.)

Another dumb translation of sorts: In the movie "The Exorcist" is a very pivotal scene in which the lead actress (Linda Blair) demonically announces, "Your mother sucks cocks in hell!" When the film was edited for TV, the censors could not cut the scene, so they replaced her line with, "Your mother sews socks that smell!" (Thanks, Marie.)

The actress who spoke the words actually was Mercedes McCambridge, and the movie's utterance was euphemized to "Your mother still rots in Hell!" for the TV version. The line "Your mother sews socks that smell!" was used in a "Saturday Night Live" sketch with Richard Pryor. (Thanks, Coop.)
