[Stiggers] You're Doing A Heck Of A Job, Cletus

Dr. Peanut speaks to the G.S.T.E.M.A.'s (Ghetto Science Team's Emergency Management Agency) during their post-catastrophe planning session.

Dr. Peanut: As I look back, circa 1968, a time of civil unrest, when the Kerner Commission report warned that the United States was "moving toward two societies," I see a nation weakened and divided by natural disasters because it ignored a 37-year-old warning and a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. prophesy: "Truth crushed to earth shall rise again!"

With all that said, we have gathered here today because our hindsight has truly motivated our foresight. We must prepare the financially challenged community for the unexpected and the unforeseen.

As executive director of the G.S.T.E.M.A., I have established a team, consisting of individuals, organizations and businesses, to provide immediate emergency assistance to all financially challenged individuals, before, during and after a catastrophic event.

Therefore, I urge everyone to consider and support Brotha Hustle, Sista Church Hat, Grandma and Grandpa Pookie, the Cootie McBride family, Kunta "Rasheed X" Toby, Bonqweesha Jones, Lil' Ray-Ray, The Shade Tree Electrical, Mechanical and Civil Engineering team, The L.M.H.F.D. National Bank, Rev. Cletus Car Sales, Crunchie Burga World, Jo-Jo's Discount Dollar Store, Clubb Chicken Wing, and the Ghetto Science Team as a cohesive group dedicated to the safety, well-being and dignity of the financially challenged community.

Remember: Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, I hope not. Just be ready next time!

Good job, Ken. I haven't quite felt the edginess the last couple of times. I miss it! Maybe I'm just to dumb too see it.
