Hmm… that’s one way to look at it.

Key breaks down the reasons why Trump is a skilled improviser, and theorizes that the candidate is often sitting on the toilet when calling in to news programs.

‘Caramel Curves’ Takes A “Ride With Norman Reedus” (Video)

Mm mm mm! Ain’t nothing like a nice body on a bike… and the motorcycle’s is nice, too. Ha!

This “Ride With Norman Reedus” series looks like some quality programming. I am catching eps and clips online, which is nice, but I am more-and-more wanting to watch on TV/DVR now that I see stuff like this.

Norman meets a member of an all-female biker club who can’t believe she’s meeting The Walking Dead’s Daryl.

Go television AND Eye Candy for my vision. Win-win!

Dave Chappelle On A Low Country ‘Ride With Norman Reedus’ (Video)

Alright, that’s gangsta.
Dave Chappelle

I’m a fan and faithful watcher of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” but I have not made time to watch an ep. of star Norman Reedus’ show, “Ride,” yet. This one featuring Dave Chappelle looks like a great one to start with. Dave and Norman are already cool (and funny) in their own rights. But together – getting into some good food and great stops & historical sites – they go for a ride on a higher level.

Enjoy the clip above and the one after the jump. And here is the link to the full episode (need a subscription to watch).

African Men Being Sold Into Slavery In 2017 (Video)

Big strong boys for farm work… 400… 700…
You are watching an auction of human beings.

Holy sh!t. That ache in your gut is probably not as profound as it would have been a century ago, or if you were actually being auctioned, but it SHOULD NOT BE THERE AT ALL! Just like this slave trade going on today. It should not be going on, in Libya, or ANYWHERE!

Smugglers in Libya are auctioning migrants off as slaves. At a property outside Tripoli, CNN’s Nima Elbagir witnessed a dozen men go under the hammer in the space of minutes.

Giggle game still strong. 50 Central checks in with another skit that manages to have fun with making a point about something ‘not fun’… the overkill we do to get through being stopped by a cop without being killed.

Comedy: America, Stop Calling ‘Michelle And Barack’… It Is Over (Video)

What’s cool about the 50 Central troupe, to me, is their willingness to take on impressions in sketches that they may not have down pat… It’s alright that the look or the voice characterizations are off if they still bring the funny. And they do. Especially at the end of this one.

“We’re blitzing. Oh yeah, we’re blitzing.”

Hope y’all enjoyed the Obamas while they were busy in the White House. It’s okay to miss ’em. But don’t be calling all late and ish. They are ‘busy’ at their own house now *wink*

Terry Crews Speaks On Being Sexually Assaulted Early In His Career: “I Felt Like I Could Punch A Hole In His Head” (Video)

Oh my damn! Dude did ‘Damon’ wrong! Talk about art imitating life (re: bathroom scene between ‘Money Mike’ aka Katt Williams and ‘Damon’ aka Terry Crews). See, if he’d have whupped the sh!t out his azz when this groper tried him, Terry might not have had a career anywhere near like he’s had. And being the wrong color in the wrong situation, he might have lost his liberty (caught a case) or his life (caught a bullet). And for similar reasons he could not even speak on it as his career progressed.

Good thing he gets to talk about it now. A different look at abuse of power. Now that the story is out, and the suit is filed, maybe some payback in the form of serious greenbacks is coming, too.

IN FRONT OF HIS WIFE!!! Maaaaannnnn…

Watch.
