I Miss Richard Pryor

Fair warning comedians swear.

I’ve been musing a lot lately over the petty and not so petty racial insults Barack Obama has had to endure over these last few years and missing Richard Pryor. Chris Rock you say? Chris is cool, but he doesn’t quite have the voice. Wanda, Aries, those comedy kings? Loves them, but could they do this?

Paul Mooney? Yeah he could do it, but he’s always been too dangerous for the American mainstream.

Bill Hicks? I didn’t know I missed him until he was gone.

Gah h/t to arizonablue. Leaving out this man was too big an omission.
