R. Kelly verdict imminent, bystanders move out the way

While Jacinda and I commence work on “Theatre of Ignorance Presents: ‘R. Town'”, news comes from the Trib that a verdict will be read at 2:00 PM CST (that’s Chicago Stepping Time, y’all).

Naturally, my thought turns to “The Trial of R. Kelly”, the classic episode of “The Boondocks” that aired almost three fucking (or is that pissing?) years ago. To me, it was a perfect episode of any television anywhere, not the least because the writing was fucking hilarious:

Tom Dubois: [about the R. Kelly sex tape] Riley, she was a little girl.
Riley: Oh, I saw that girl. She wasn’t little. I’m little. Gary Coleman’s little. Mini-Me is little. And to the best of my knowledge, we all managed to avoid gettin’ peed on so far!
Tom Dubois: But what about the victim!
Riley: Oh yes! The victim. At what point does personal responsibility become a factor in this equation? I see piss comin’ I run. She saw piss comin’ she stayed. And why should I miss out on the next R. Kelly album just fo’ that?
[walks away]
Huey: Man, you just got beat by an eight-year old.
Riley: [from afar] And if R. Kelly goes to jail, I’ma piss on yo’ cat!

Okay, I guess I’ll go back to behaving myself now.
