Fin de Semana
Just a little something to pass the weekend until I write something more substantive...hey we gotta make fun of ourselves sometimes.. Enjoy
YUH JUST GOTTA LOVE BLACK FOLK! - THERE'S NOBODY LIKE EM'
With black folks, everything starts late! Everything ends late. Time is just a thang!
Black folks' philosophy about time is, "We may not be on time, but we are in time, and we don't want to miss anything."Black folks arrive late for weddings, funerals, and Sunday church services! And then act like they are on time!
Black folks will go to social functions, particularly at church, and not stay for the program, but want to wrap up some food to take home as if the event is fast food "take out."
When some black preachers can't think of what else to say during a sermon, they say, "Look at your neighbor and say, 'God loves you!"
Every black family has a preacher... mine included LOL
When a lead choir member can't reach a high note or has forgotten the words, the choir members will get filled with "a holy ghost," get happy, shout and not have to finish the song.
A black gospel choir can sing a three word song for twenty minutes.... So true..I once went to a church and they sang a one verse chorus for 45mins...I was too thru.
In the black church, the announcements are longer than the sermon. Not all !! ha ha ha
Black folks cry and pass out at the funeral, but are fine and laughin' at the dinner following the interment.
The black church takes twenty minutes to take up an offering at an afternoon program and only raise $76.34! (don't forget they take an hour to count it again after church).--- so unfair
Black folks will ask grandparents to watch their kids while they run an errand but don't pick them up until two days later.
Black folks eat "fried" bologna. Nope, not me
Black folks refer to diabetes as, "Sugar."
Don't ask black folks for the precise time. They respond, "Almost a quarter after...." or a "little after two."
Black folks will eat ferociously at the family dinner, and then have the nerve to start wrappin' stuff up in foil to take home....So damned true and have the nerve not to bring anything to the family dinner either
Black cashiers always seem to have an attitude.-- All cashiers, black, white, yellow purple
Black folks sell CDs, potato chips, nabs and sodas out the trunk of their cars after church and at the football game.
Black folks have at least one person in the family who still wears a Jheri curl.--- Yup mine included, and girl thinks she looks good wid dat Jheri curl too.
Black folks stay engaged for six years and never get married.
Black folks will have the telephone company shut off their house phone, but still have a cell phone on. -- why the hell not..yuh don't need the house phone
Black folks put hot sauce and ketchup on everything!--Only the folks from down south
Black folks have at least one family member that "almost" made it to the pros.--Nope, not mine
Black folks will owe you and everybody else in the neighborhood money but can buy a new car.
Black folks re-use ZipLoc baggies, paper plates, plastic forks, spoons, and knives.--So true
Black folks put thin left over bars of soap in jars or plastic containers, run scalding hot water--over them to melt them down to use as dishwashing liquid or home made bubble bath.-- Never heard of this.--how nasty
Black folks won't throw anything away! The rationale is that you never know when you might need it!--Not only black folks
IN SPITE OF ALL OF OUR PECULIAR WAYS, I STILL LOVE BLACK FOLKS! DON'T YOU?? lol
YOU'D BETTER CUZ YOU IS ONE!
