THOUGHT YOU COULD HIDE DOWN AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN, DID YOU, YOU SLIPPERY NON-GREEK EEL ? GOTCHA. ON A SERIOUS NOTE, I AM DISMAYED BY THE USE OF THE WORD, BROWN. I SERVED IN THE MARINE CORPS WITH ONE OUTSTANDING MARINE WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS BUT LET’S JUST SAY HE COULD HAVE BEEN THE BAD COSBY KID WHO JOINED THE CORPS AND GOT HIS ACT TOGETHER. I WOULD ASK HIM, HEY, FORMER COSBY KID, WHAT’S IT LIKE BEING A BLACK MAN IN THE CORPS ? TO WHICH HE WOULD RETORT WITH A SLY GRIN, “ I DON’T KNOW, CUZ. I AIN’T BLACK, I’M PECAN TAN.” AND HE SAID PECAN LIKE THEY DO IN THE SOUTH, PEE-CAN NOT PEE-CON. — WOW, THAT ISN’T INAPPPROPRIATE AT ALL. IT IS A REAL RECOLLECTION. SO SHAPE UP , MISTER NON-GREEK DIOGENES. IT IS NOT COOL TO SAY “BROWN.” BROWN IS SLIGHTLY SINISTER. SAY “PECAN TAN .” SAY IT SMARTLY AND WITH A SLY GRIN, JUST LIKE THAT FORMER COSBY KID I KNEW IN THE CORPS. SEMPER FI AND COLOR ME “PECAN TAN.” JUST DON’T ASK ME TO WATCH “ THE COSBY SHOW. “ AMEN AND AMEN. my 4 d cell maglite will kick the butt of your lantern any day, any time, any where. giddyup.
