« Baby of many talents | Main | Mia Monday #11: All about the giggle edition »


The other night during dinner, Chris and I were discussing the possibility of my acquiring a couple of, ahem, working girls and then, let's see, project managing their efforts and turning a tidy profit. Prior to this mommy gig I was a project manager, so it seemed right up my alley. As this was Chris's recommendation, I pondered the possibilities and then gave him a totally straight look and said, "Well, I don't know. It's hard out here for a pimp."

He didn't get it. He started talking about how we could overcome the challenges to prostitution posed by our largely rural county. I was furious. I mean, how often is "it's hard out here for a pimp" the completely appropriate next line in any conversation? There we were, at the perfect intersection of pop culture zeitgeist and our veggie burger lives and we blew it. I had to explain the reference, which as we all know destroys any joke, but is especially deadly to pimp jokes. It was a sad moment.

While we are on the subject of pimping, have you gotten your daily Mia fix? Are you starting to get the shakes? Have no fear, I am here to hook you up. You can find Mia over at her place, or on flickr. No need to thank me, that look of pure bliss on your face at the sight of my beautiful child is all the thanks I need.

Word to your mother, bitches. I am so street.

That's hilarious! And thank you for the Mia fix. I admit, I was getting the DT's.

LOL... Glad to see you're keepin' it real.

And I'm glad I can get my Mia fix before the weekend.

i've been trying to find a way to add that line into a conversation for awhile now. unfortunately, i've had no such luck. that, on the other hand, was perfect.

Yeah, a joke looses something if you have to explain it. Thanks for the pics. She's so freaking cute. I don't know how you stand it.

Um, I don't get it either. So clearly you are more street than me. Not that it would take much.

I say you practise your pimpslap on him while he's asleep. Even I got that one, and I'm on the shallow end of the pop culture pool.

It's all in the wrist, remember.

If it makes you feel any better, I got the joke immediatly....and now that song is stuck in my head.....not sure that I should thank you for that...

I sooooo get it!!! and I hardly get anything!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm just entering my second trimester and I have to say - I just hope my baby is half as cute as Mia!!!

Dang, I hope you get another opportunity soon to use that line in a more "enlightened" crowd ... to waste such an opportunity, well, it's downright ludacris (haha) I tell ya.

Off subject - sent you email but it didn't go through. Smenita is the code blogger uses for word verification when their system is non-functioning. It shows up everywhere. Type a comment - it says smenita and rejects. You wouldn't be affected unless you tried to leave a comment on blogspot. So many of us use blogger that when it goes down we all suffer withdrawal pains.

It's fixed - again - but blogger has been a pain in the patootie lately.

Oh I hate when I have to explain the joke. I work with idiots, so it happens often!

Your daughter is SO cute! But what was she sitting in?

Like, okay (I just remembered) - someone at work said something about some guy looking at me and I said, "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard" and - NOTHING. No response. Sigh.

yeah, and there's a "whole lotta bitches jumpin' ship..." whenever you need it, i got your back.

LOL... what a great line!!! At least WE got it! Lots of Laughter coming your way over the internet!

Hahaha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't get the reference. This could be due to some must-see movie I didn't see or must-read book I never even heard of. Help me out here! The joke was ruined anyway, may as well explain it...

Also, imploding from all the cuteness your daughter brings to this world as we speak.

just hustle and flow, baby. hustle and flow.

well, you know, with the cadillac and gas money spent...there's a whole lotta bitches jumpin' ship.

you know.

You crack me up. lol
Cute pics of Mia. She is sdorable.

I didn't get it, either. But I read it out loud to my DH who not only got it, but laughed pretty loudly. And then he explained it to me.

You are just so funny...and very street indeed.

I feel ya sistah! I sang and inpromtu song pretending to be my infant son to his dad in which I cleverly substituted words. His dad didnt get it.
I still think my son's version (Hard Out Here for a Shirmp) is hilarious anyway.

I've been trying SO HARD to slip that little gem into casual conversation.
Nice work.

Your Mia is the cutest!

I am SOOOO not street. I? Am white bread, baby!

Chris, that was a golden opportunity and you blew it! Dammit.
