It always confuses young black guys when old white guys know who Parliament is. I just had an encounter. This young black guy had laid a CD booklet on the counter at a truckstop, showing it to the cashier. I glanced at and there was a picture of a bunch of people dreseed like … well, like Parliament.
I said “Who is that? It looks like Parliament.”
He said, “Aw, hell. You don’t know who Parliament is.”
I tried to educate him, but he wouldn’t accept words from P-Funk or Flashlight as Proof. So I quoted the following;
There once was a man from Peru
Who went to sleep in his canoe
He was dreaming of Venus
He took out his penis
And woke up with a hand full of goo.
