- Where Dey Do Dat At? Roscoes Chicken + Waffles. SMFH
As the extended spring summer draws to its close, it’s time for me to vent. I’ve seen some beautiful cities and countries this summer. Unfortunately, I’ve also seen some wild, crazy, and disrespectful actions over the last few weeks. This caused me to think to myself and say “Self: Where dey do dat at?!” That phrase has caught on to pop culture like wildfire, and now its time to save you the trouble of losing. Here are some of the top WDDDA moments of the summer:
Men with shades in the club
I confess that I ‘ve done this before. I also confess that I didn’t understand the allure then and still don’t now. I never sold drugs or a rap album, so why would I wear shades? You can’t see sh*t in the club, 75% of the time it doesn’t go with your outfit, and it always comes off as fake stuntin. If you’re living check to check and needed a hook up to get into the club, you need to keep the shades in the crib. Exceptions to the rule include: cross eyededed people, if you got knocked the eff out into a scuffle and need to cover bruises, or if you are Vampire and your eyes are sensitive to ambient light, then stay in the crib with Sookie by all mean rock em. Otherwise, stop actin like you’re Cyclops from X-Men and get it together!
Women wearing belly shirts..with Bellies included!
When I go to Summer Jam in NYC, I’m guaranteed to see this atrocity. Women with guts wearing short cut shirts and tight tees, revealing a midsection shaped like a 1-up There’s too many options for physical fitness available for your to visually torture people with your sumoesque stature. I’m not saying you have to look like a super model, but have some type of common fashion sense and couth and wear what FITS! Hit the gym, work out, I mean come on, every one’s doing it! You should love yourself and your body, but all know where dey do dat at, and that’s at your house with friends who don’t love you because they let you come out the house looking like a HOT mess!
Men – If you’re hitting the club after the bbq, then bring a change of clothes or rock an outfit that only needs a minor change to be club compatible. 3 piece suits at a BBQ?! #WDDDA?!!
Women – STILETTOS AND GRASS don’t mix! Cheap heels at that! You truly think men will look at your feet at a BBQ and think “wow her shoe game’s proper. She’s killing those heels I need to holler”?! NEGATIVE! You walk around the backyard BBQ area tip-toeing to avoid falling on your face and complain about your hurt feet ALL DAY. Meanwhile, you don’t realize that the same dudes you try to impress just laugh to themselves, thinking “Damn sweetie, Where Dey Do Dat At?!”
Men – Open toe sandals? Sandals in general? #FAIL! I’m sorry but unless you are at a pool, the beach (We’ll accept the desert also), or you’re name is tiny 8lb 6oz baby Jesus, rockin sandals is a no-no. For all that argue, I present exhibit A and rest my case: http://twitpic.com/dg9ri (No Eric Benet). Someone PLEASE tell me WDDDA?!
Women – when you wear open toe shoes or shoes that reveal your foot, lotion is your ally and not your adversary. I only like crust on my pizza, and I’ve seen too many heels that you can strike a match on, or press a coal against them to make diamonds. No pedicure? Make sure the toenails are painted right even if you have to do it yourself! We have to do better ladies!
Cookouts with no food or drink (these are block parties then!). See related: people who show up to BBQs empty handed (I approve of denial of entry).
Hygiene – If you smell like a full court basketball game, please go back to the drawing board, purchase a firearm, and Plaxico yourself!
