Kunta "Rahsheed X" Toby Productions presents a sneak peek at his new dramatic comedy that will touch your mind and not your behind: "My Big Fat Meat Front Porch Wedding, Barbecue and Disco."
Moniqua: "It's Memorial Day. Folks in my neighborhood barely have money to drive to the park or visit family and friends. Gasoline costs close to $3 a gallon. The young are restless and the old hopeless because pay day is four days away.
"Forgive me for complaining. I refuse to give in to the economic gloom and doom of lower-class living. Poli-tricks and lies are not the boss of me! So my fiancé, Chef Fat Meat, and I recommitted our marriage vows on Ol' Skool Pete's front porch. We invited the neighborhood to our second wedding!
"Rev. Cletus conducted the wedding ceremony and provided Double-Dutch Shuttle Bus service for the disabled and transportation-challenged. Jojo's Discount Dollar Store contributed the wedding rings, paper plates, Styrofoam cups, ice and eating utensils. Brother Hustle brought plenty of spiked fruity Kool-Aid punch for the grown folks and Juicy Juice for the kids. And Pork-N-Piggly donated grilled fat-meat patties, chicken, ribs, potato salad, beans and marinated barbecue tofu strips. We had a good time making the best out of a bad situation.
"After Rev. Cletus pronounced us a married couple again, Ol' Skool Pete kicked off the wedding celebration with the disco song 'I Will Survive,' as G.W. makes the world go 'round."
The only group poorer than living po' folks is dead po' folks.
Indeed, we will survive. First we wuz afraid. We wuz petrified. As long as we know how to love. I know we will stay alive. We've got all our life to live. We got all our love to give. And we will survive. Hey, hey.
Will it go 'round' in circles? Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky? We love you Billy Preston. We will miss you.
