WEST HOLLYWOOD - Queen Latifah and Wanda Sykes had both just finished performing at the Ha Ha Ha Comedy Club in West Holly, as the locals refer to West Hollywood.
The two black gay comedians had performed at a show to benefit the underprivileged black children of Beverly Hills.
And the place was packed to the the rafters. Both women did 45 minute routines each. Queen Latifah said that there really ain't too much that scares her, not the Taliban, not Al Qaeda, and not the KKK, but one thing that does scare the hell out of her is the thought of Sarah Louise Palin becoming President of the United States.
QL shook her head, threw her arms in the air and said, "Can y'all 'magine dat wilderness woman sitting up in da White Home in her camouflaged pants, wiff her shotgun shell x-belt draped across her Iceberg State College sweatshirt?"
Latifah rolled her eyes and said "Hey, lissen up here y'all. I swears dat I be afraid dat da geographically challenged loose moose is liable ta bomb da hell out of Iowa thinking dat da mofo was Iran."
She then said that she just cannot bring herself to vote for a woman who smells worse than a New Jersey landfill. The Queen said that Mrs. Palin is the only woman in America who leaves the toilet seat up and that's because she pees standing up just like her husband Todd and every other male in America.
Oh sure there is no doubt that "Snowflake" will certainly get the moose hunter vote, but hey what does that amount to nationwide?...maybe 200 votes tops.
After Queen Latifah left the stage, Wanda Sykes followed her. And right away she wanted to know how come there are no black professional dancers on Dancing With The Stars.
She said that the show has been on for 12 seasons and she has never seen a black pro dancer.
She also wanted to know how come on Andy Griffith's television show The Andy Griffith Show which was set in the Southern town of Mayberry, North Carolina, the viewers never saw one black person, not one. Not even a black maid for goodness sake.
Sykes noted that it would be like going to Alaska and not seeing one single, solitary Eskimo.
She then got around to the anti-gay remarks that the brother Tracy Morgan had made. Wanda giggled as she said that first of all what black family names their black baby boy Tracy?
Wanda said that it would be like a white family naming their baby boy Sitting Buffalo, or a Puerto Rican family naming their baby boy Flintstone, or a Korean family naming their baby boy Bubba.
She stated that she does not like the fact that Tracy Morgan went on and hurled insult after insult at the gay community. She said that Tracy don't exactly look like no Denzel Washington in the looks department.
Sykes remarked that right after Morgan's remark had appeared on the Internet Queen Latifah called her up and the two agreed over the phone that they will most probably end up kicking Morgan's homophobic butt before too long.
June 19 is Eat An Oreo Day, except in Macon, Georgia, where they do not have cookies but they sure do have a whole lot of crackers.
