This Bobby Brown Biography Seems Like It Will Be The Greatest Book Of All Time

Dey Street Books

 

To call myself a Bobby Brown fan would do a disservice to the many years I’ve fought for Don’t Be Cruel’s recognition as one of the greatest R&B albums of all time. The album is damn near flawless. The WORST song on the album is “Take It Slow” and its not even a bad song. It’s just not as good as “Every Little Step”, “Don’t Be Cruel”, “Roni”, “My Prerogative”, “Rock Witcha”, “I’ll Be Good To You”, “All Day All Night” or “I Really Love You Girl”.

Point is, in my life, Bobby Brown is the man. Or was. Was is definitely a more accurate descriptor even I’m still a fan. His life, or at least what we knew of it, was full of all kinds of shit. From his marriage to Whitney Houston to his drug habits and on-again-off-again membership as part of New Edition, etc. There were reality shows and terrible interviews full of perspiration. Bobby Brown was everybody’s favorite crack/cokehead for a while.

Then tragedy struck. Whitney died. Then Bobbi Kristina died. I genuinely felt bad for him. For whatever he and Whitney were going through, at some point in life I always thought of one when I thought of the other. Then came the terrible Lifetime movie, Whitney, which was really more of a positive PR stunt for Bobby Brown’s camp.

Bobby Brown is just one of those guys who seems to have lived life to the fullest extent available to him. I have always thought he’d have to write a book one day, just to set the record truly straight on whether or not he turned Whitney onto coke or if she turned him onto coke – the receipts, if you will.

There’s the time he fucked Janet Jackson, Madonna, midgets, and ghosts. There’s the fact that he cooked a motherfucking COCAINE CHICKEN at age 10.

Look, I don’t give a shit what you say, cocaine chicken should not be a thing, but because of Bobby Brown, from here on out, henceforth and forever more, cocaine chicken is a thing. It is entirely possible that the next time I go to Popeye’s and order me a box set of chicken, I’ll make sure to ask if they can not put any cocaine on it, because Bobby Brown put cocaine on his chicken and ain’t nobody got time for that.

Plus, ghost, b.

I’ve watched enough television in life to know that there are people out there who have been sexually assaulted by the netherworld, typically in their sleep. There are people who have been anally probed by aliens. The movie Independence Day pretty much proved that all of those people aren’t making shit up. Because it happened to Bobby Brown in a mansion in Atlanta. And it terrified him.

Because it should. But if Bobby Brown said it happened, hell,it happened because why would little Bobby Brown from Orchard Park who made it big have to lie about such things.

I don’t have the book yet. But you better believe that if there’s one book that I will be copping, it is this one. I’m a bit of a junkie for Black musician biographies. To this day, I will contend that Quincy Jones autobiography, entitled Q: The Autobiography of Quincy Jones, might be one of the most impressive, inspirational books I’ve ever read. Quincy Jones has literally done it all and it made me feel that my life was minuscule. I inhaled Jermaine Dupri’s biography and one day I’ll have to write about how I feel he might be the most underappreciated and underrated music producer ever, especially in the urban landscape. I even copped 50 Cent’s book. I like to read about the lives of people who’ve made it and their own perspective on their upbringing and success.

But none of them dudes were out here fucking ghosts. I’m not saying that’s the new bar for “interesting”, I’m also NOT not saying it either.

I realize I wrote an entire screed about a book that I’ve yet to purchase and could end up being a colossal disappointment. But I’m excited for it anyway. Even if it ends up not being everything I hope it could be, its alright…

…because J. Cole went platinum with no features.

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

  • I think I too, will have to cop this book. You’ve sold me on it PJ.

    • panamajackson

      That’s the beauty of Bobby Brown, he sells himself WHILE MAKING COCAINE CHICKEN.

        Now I gotta step my seasoning game up. Tony Chachere’s ain’t gonna cut it no mo’.

          Tony C’s is just fine homie. Just fine.

          • brothaskeeper

            Fine…..*pouts*

  • KMN

    I saw a People mag (I think) with him on the front about relations with ghosts…I literally ROFLed in Walgreens that day…I want to read this for every reason and no reason at all…Thanks PJ I’m ready…this better be on Kindle Unlimited for free doe lolol

  • Sigma_Since 93

    Bobby was the man back in the day. Teddy Riley is someplace yelling I made that man! It’s hard to separate Bobby and Whitney but the scary part to all of this is that Whitney was more hood than Bobby…..

    • KMN

      YES!! He had an excerpt saying that Eddie Murphy said she smoked too much dro and was a bit too wild for him…

      • Jay

        Wow! Eddie… 80’s Eddie said that.

        • Sigma_Since 93

          Not hard to believe. You could catch a contact high from all the drugs on the SNL set.

        • Word. That’s saying something when Eddie Murphy at peak coke takes a look at you and says Nah.

      • Curly Sue

        Wow! Was that after her gave her that big “friendship” ring she wore on Arsenio’s show?

    • RewindingtonMaximus

      People let that pop princess crap fool them, forgot she was a Jersey girl through & through.

      • It just shows that Clive Davis is a freaking genius. He somehow took a hood chick from Newark and cleaned her up to the point where Black people were willing to boo her for being a sellout. Clive Davis is the KING of A&R reps. The KING.

        • IwanttobeaRizpah

          Clive Davis ain’t no genius but the Devil in human form.

        • RewindingtonMaximus

          He’s something alright. But I think Whitney was a unique find. It’s clear her mom wasn’t letting her be any old kind of hood rat, she still had home training.

          • Sigma_Since 93

            Mom and Dionne Warrick were trying to keep her above the fray but it’s hard when momma and Dionne got some hood in them as well.

          • Helga G.Pataki

            I don’t know why but “any old kind of hoodrat” just took me out lmao

            • RewindingtonMaximus

              ahaha come on now, we both know when your auntie is Dionne Warrick, and your momma sings gospel, you might be out in the streets THINKING about plottin & thottin, but Jesus is riding shotgun EVERYTIME.

                  Yo i just hit my head on my desk cause I laughed so hard

                  • Melissa

                    That’s exactly what I did last night when someone had a clip of this on the ‘gram. I accidentally paused it at the 15 second mark and the angle makes it looks like Bobby got knocked up with a ghost’s baby. GIRD YOUR LOINS PEOPLE:

                    • Melissa

                      I was super into this in 2002, the period in which I also wore jeans with a 2.5″ rise and platform flip-flops….I feel like that entire era could be hashtagged #CocaineChicken and it would all make sense!

                    • RewindingtonMaximus

                      lmao honestly them early 2000s was some weird years, we have no idea how much silliness we got away with.

                      Also…pics of those jeans & flip flops please

                    • Melissa

                      HAHAHAHA!! Dude, there goes my afternoon. I am now determined to find any photographic evidence of this glorious era that may be lurking in my house. ????

                  • Cheech

                    The top of the desk, or the bottom?

                    • RewindingtonMaximus

                      Top of the desk Cheech, because I wanted to curl up in the fetal position while laughing and forgot the huge object obstructing my ability to do so…..but no headache!

                • Homahgawd!

                  • Melissa

                    Let’s keep this party going hahahahaha!!

                      True story: When my Nana was in a vengeful mood, she used to mutter “Christ on a cracker” while drinking Chardonnay out of a coffee mug. So I only have positive associations hahahaha!! https://media3.giphy.com/media/AEItpPhNH9sY/200_s.gif

              • Cleojonz

                For the record, I cannot stand Dionne Warwick because of a story my mom told me from back in the day. Whitney got her addiction habits honest, for real. My mom had gone to see Ms. Dionne at some venue, can’t remember where, and the show was so delayed like Lauren Hill delayed. She finally came on and was a sloppy mess. I was so disgusted at the recounting of this tale and I couldn’t have even been a glimmer in anybody’s eye yet when it went down lol.

                • RewindingtonMaximus

                  Honestly given how many of our favorite stars were on drugs back in the day, I fully understand where that resentment can come from, because too many people got arrogant and sloppy.

        • Val

          Clive Davis is an evil genius. There, fixed it for you.

          • Curly Sue

            And a murderer. I’m still pissed about them partying while Nippy’s body was upstairs.

            • Val

              Who’d he murder? I agree it was supremely tacky and disrespectful to continue with the party.

              • Curly Sue

                I’ve just always suspected he had some connection to her death. Something seemed very off about him afterwards and it wasn’t grief.

            • Cheech

              Teddy Riley is also a murderer. The guy he put the hit on, Ron Byrd, did not die, but one of Guy’s guys died in the attempted hit. That’s felony murder.

          • Mochasister

            Yeah, I’ve heard really bad things about him. That whole industry is so cutthroat and evil.

        • Nik White

          She chose that hood life! She was raised solidly middle/upper middle class…graduating from a Catholic high school (and she wasn’t on scholarship)!

          • Cleojonz

            Everybody knows Catholic School girls get into the worst shenanigans.

            • Val

              <—- Catholic school girl. ;-)

              • Cheech

                I really didn’t need to know that ….
                (kidding val! *waves*)

            • Sigma_Since 93

              Catholic school is where Dwights showed me how to drink up your parents vodka and fill the bottle with water so they would not notice at first glance.

        • She was a model first though.. people forget.

          • Nik White

            SEVENTEEN magazine!

          • Mochasister

            It’s that how the drugs started? I’ve heard that a lot of models use drugs to stay thin. I also heard that one of her brothers introduced her to drugs.

    • DBoySlim

      I keep telling folks that. Bobby is from Boston. Whitney is from Newark. Enough said.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        Whitney knew where to get a bag of the good in the streets and a bag that good when she was modeling in Milan

      • IwanttobeaRizpah

        I don’t know what I was watching and they were interviewing BB, and I heard them mention he grew up in Boston, thought I misheard. Thanks for confirming.

      • panamajackson

        He’s from the hood in Boston though. If I’m not mistaken, Orchard Park (which I mentioned) was a pretty notorious projects in Roxbury. New Edition weren’t exactly church kids who hit it big, they were some hood kids who hit big.

        • Val

          Everyone from New Edition is from Boston, right?

          • Sigma_Since 93

            Yes if you are talking about the original members

          • Melissa

            Yup! I grew up in Belmont and my English teacher used to love to point to me and say, “That was Michael Bivins’ chair!’ And, yes, Orchard Park (now Orchard Gardens) is a rough stretch of road…but I did not know you could get Cocaine Chicken there.

          • panamajackson

            Yep. Everybody but Johnny Gill who is from DC.

          • miss t-lee

            Yup. Except for Johnny Gill…who came on after Bobby went solo.

            • Val

              Hmmm, interesting, I didn’t even recall that they weren’t in the group at the same time.

              • miss t-lee

                Johnny Gill was a solo artist, and had some hits with Stacy Lattisaw back in the day. When Bobby went solo, he was brought in.

                • Val

                  Once again I am impressed by your music history knowledge. For some reason I remembered it as Johnny doing those duets with Stacy and being a solo artist after New Edition but as I think about it that couldn’t be right.

                  • miss t-lee

                    Well thank you Val.
                    Yeah, it was definitely before.
                    Johnny was with NE, and then they all dropped albums, BBD, Ralph Tresvant and JG, and as side projects. Then right back to NE as a group.

                • Perfect Combination was my jam… They were actually pushed to date because the label wanted to market that chemistry…

                  Especially, when they released “Where Do We Go From Here.”

                  • miss t-lee

                    “They were actually pushed to date because the label wanted to market that chemistry…”

                    I don’t believe that dog would have ever hunted.

                  • Sigma_Since 93

                    Half Crazy was slept on for real

                • Jennifer

                  I love the Stacy Lattisaw Unsung. It’s interesting to see teenage Johnny Gill singing with that same low-a$$ voice when he was so young. Puberty must have struck him at like 5 for him to develop that old man voice.

                  • miss t-lee

                    For real. That gruff, grown man singing voice.

                    • Mary Burrell

                      I loved it especially when he would take the mic and sing “My name is Johnnny Gilll…! It was quite impressive.

                    • miss t-lee

                      Yup. I always loved the end of “NE Heartbreak”–he came through just yelling them adlibs and runs…lol

                    • Cleojonz

                      Do you know he has a version of Can you Stand the Rain with just his vocals isolated? I head it on a music choice channel and was so confused, like stuck all the rest of New Edition in the low low background.

                    • miss t-lee

                      I think I’ve heard it, although it’s been a while.

                    • Jeopardy15

                      I logged in just to high-five you for this. JG was good for screaming at folks.

                    • miss t-lee

                      Yes lawd.

                    • Mochasister

                      I will forever and a day love his song “My, My, My.”

                • Mary Burrell

                  A Perfect Combination song.

            • Vanity in Peril

              Johnny Gill came on to fuque Ralph’s entire life up.

              • miss t-lee

                For real though.

        • Brooklyn_Bruin

          She put him on!

        • Mochasister

          I used to argue with someone back in the day about that. I just knew Bobby had dragged her down into the gutter with him. Little did we know….

          • Giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirl!

            • Mochasister

              One of these days I will learn to stop judging a book by its cover and assuming things. Of course, I’ll probably be dead by then!

      • Freebird

        I had to learn…folks go to school in Boston and think thats it…..nah…That part of Boston when Bobby grew up there would wreck your life. That movie with LL playing a kingpen…thats a Boston story.

    • miss t-lee

      Folks really be forgetting that Whitney was hood as heyll. Clive Davis polished her, just like all his other artists.

      • IwanttobeaRizpah

        He polishes them, alright. Like reaaaaal good.

        • miss t-lee

          Gotta protect your investment.

          • IwanttobeaRizpah

            Hope you caught the sarcasm.

            • miss t-lee

              Oh, I did…lol

    • The 9-9…& the 2000

      Teddy Riley is still performing with Blackstreet. They are now billed as Blackstreet featuring Teddy Riley. I’m ashamed to know this.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        With Dave Hollister or without Dave Hollister?

        • Without

          • Sigma_Since 93

            NOAP…Can’t spend my $ for that.

        • The 9-9…& the 2000

          WITH.

        • The 9-9…& the 2000

          WITH, but not on all tour dates. it’s literally a crap shoot

    • Cleojonz

      For real, people kept trying to say it was Bobby dragging her down, but she was already there! I loved Being Bobby Brown and watching hoodrat Whitney.

      • Curly Sue

        Nevermind that her own brother was on that mess first.

    • “Whitney was more hood than Bobby.”

      #facts

      • Mary Burrell

        Remember when Eddie Murphy bought Whitney that diamond ring they dated for a minute.

    • Jennifer

      Does anybody else remember the New Edition “Behind the Music” ep where petty Johnny Gill boldly (pettily?) told us that Whitney was hood before she EVER met Bobby? This was prior to the Diane Sawyer “receipts” interview.

      I swear it happened. I remember it as vividly as Bobby Brown remembers that ghost.

      • ChokeOnThisTea

        It sure did. I remember it vividly.

    • Mochasister

      And we had no idea.

  • WAIT…I just read the Cocaine Chicken excerpt…what to you MEAN it became a family tradition?! O_O

    • KMN

      lmao WHAT OMG let me go read this lolol

    • KMN

      See this is why my momma told me you can’t eat at everybody house…eff around and be Smokey in the pigeon coop

      • miss t-lee

        For real, mayne.

  • Im going to add this to my reading list

  • RewindingtonMaximus

    So that ghost was like

    “Every little step I take/you will be there/every little inch I take/we’ll be together”

    I just want to know if it was Ghostbuster 2 Bobby or balloon lip Bobby that got smashed. Because if it was Ghostbusters 2 Bobby, I hope the ghost was like “oooooh weeee ooooh, ooooh we oooh” while getting it in.

    • KMN

      Wonder if it was Slimer…

      • brothaskeeper

        Ew.

      • RewindingtonMaximus

        That’s some serious tongue action there then

      • Melissa

        But you know what though? There’s no such thing as Ghost Herpes, so play on playa.

      • Jennifer

        LOL!

      • Mochasister

        Oh Lawd! Not Slimer!

    • DBoySlim

      Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahhhh!

    • brothaskeeper
    • she

      I sung the lyrics in my head as I read it.

      • RewindingtonMaximus

        as long as you did the Running Man right after, I approve.

        • Nik White

          The real Running Man!

          • RewindingtonMaximus

            Damn straight, not this new crap

            • Mochasister

              Wait, there’s more than one Running Man? I don’t watch TV or have kids so I am out of the loop.

              • Blueberry01

                Google the “Running Man Challenge”

                • Mochasister

                  Kids today. When I think of the Running Man, I think of the dance from the 90s. It’s a cute little dance. They just should have named it something else.

                  • Blueberry01

                    I know right! I think the actual name of the dance is called the cherry hill.

              • RewindingtonMaximus

                The kids are reinventing everything from the 90s right now

                • Mochasister

                  And that’s how you know you are old. The dances that you enjoyed as a teenager and young adult in college are being reinvented by young’uns.

                  • RewindingtonMaximus

                    It’s funny how time flies by. I was told once every generation likes to go 20 years back in time and reclaim that culture. I thought about it and it makes sense. In the 90s, our music sampled a lot of funk & disco, our dances are variations of dances from the disco era, etc…it’s weird how it goes full circle.

                    • Mochasister

                      Yeah, it sure does.

    • Mochasister

      You so stupid!

  • DBoySlim

    My rap group name will be Cocaine Chicken.

    • panamajackson

      I already added cocaine chicken to my VSB bio.

    • miss t-lee

      YES.

    • Val

      If I ever get to name a street it’s going to be Cocaine Chicken Drive. And I’m going to live on that street and really enjoy telling people where I live and getting my mail is going to be fun every day.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        Cocaine Chicken Court has a better ring to it.

        • Val

          Sorry, Sig, but in California ‘Drive’ has more class. Like Rodeo Drive, etc. Lol ‘Courts’ are usually in trailer parks.

          • Buster Cannon

            Really? Over here there are ‘Courts’ in all the bougie black suburban neighborhoods lol.

            • Brooklyn_Bruin

              Remember don’t mess with Hollywood Court

            • Blueberry01

              And “circles”…

          • Question

            Rodeo drive? Pronounce ro-dee-o or ro-day-o?

            • Val

              Depends on what part of LA you’re in. It’s a very long street. Once it gets to South LA it’s Ro-dee-o. In Beverly Hills and everywhere else it’s Ro-day-o.

      • brothaskeeper

        If a chicken organization existed that had that name, would you favor it over Popeye’s?

        • Val

          You would have to love a chicken place called Cocaine Chicken.

          • brothaskeeper

            Folk’ll be up in dat piece cracking open the bones and snorting the gristle.

        • DBoySlim

          I know a place that sells Crack Fries so…

          • Val

            Are they worthy of that name?

          • brothaskeeper

            Go on.

            • DBoySlim

              It has a mix of spices and cracked pepper. Hence the name.

        • Jennifer

          I’d certainly favor it over Bojangle’s.

          • brothaskeeper
            • ChokeOnThisTea

              Here y’all go with that Bojangles slander. Ugh!

              • brothaskeeper

                Bojangles = warm dumpster juice wrapped in a used baby diaper. Yeah, I said it.

                But that BoBerry biscuit, tho.

                • ChokeOnThisTea

                  *snatches brotha’s BoBerry Biscuit from his mouth*

                  You not gone disrespect the chicken like that, but think you can enjoy the biscuits.

                  • brothaskeeper

                    Hey!

      • Damn Val.

        • Val

          Thanks. :-)

      • L8Comer

        On Cocaine Chicken Drive, I’ll open a restaurant called “Trap house” (cuz I be cooking that crack) and it can feature cocaine chicken and crack wings with that fiyah!!! Drinks? Lean and novacane cocktails… Now I’m taking it too far lolol

        • Jennifer

          You let me know when you’re ready to franchise. It’ll be a hit in the ‘burbs.

          • L8Comer

            Zactly. You’re in DC right? I’m thinking 14th street or even Dupont circle lol

        • Val

          Why, L8, why? You’re trying to turn Cocaine Chicken Drive into MLK Blvd. Lol

          • Mary Burrell

            Do you remember there was a place in Texas called Fat H0e burgers and it was a hit in some small town in Texas. It was a young black sister who was the proprietor?

            • Val

              Oh my, really? I’ve never heard about that, Mary. I would remember if I had. Yikes.

              • Mary Burrell

                The name upset a lot of people so they closed it down.

                • Mochasister

                  I don’t know why. It’s not like you have to BE a fat hoe to eat their burgers. I bet those burgers were bomb!

          • L8Comer

            Bahahaha, okay okay I’ll keep it classy

        • Blueberry01

          Your price too high, you need to cut it…

      • NonyaB

        If you do that, I’ma make sure to be your friend, get a blinged out big body with grills to cruise down Cocaine Chicken Drive on my way to visit. ‘Cause we da bess. ?

    • ChokeOnThisTea

      I can’t even wrap my mind around cocaine chicken. Like, did he use it as a seasoning salt? Was it a part of the flour batter to fry the chicken? Did he stuff the bird with it? Like, how Sway?!!!

      *on second thought, I don’t even wanna know*

      • OG Mermaid

        LOL, QTNA forreal

      • Kas

        He thought it was flour

        • But how does one think cocaine is flour?

          hmmmmm…

          • Nik White

            From what I’ve seen on tv, cocaine is white and powdery…I keep my flour in the freezer so…

            • In the FLOUR BAG…. I cannot.

              • Nik White

                In a ziploc bag cuz the flour bag burst…

                • brothaskeeper

                  Without fail.

          • L8Comer

            Lol well he was 10 and it was in the freezer

          • Jennifer

            How does one have enough cocaine lying around that your 10 year old can cover some chicken in it? I feel like we’re missing the point here.

            • ChokeOnThisTea

              True. Of course I’m thinking bad parenting. But then when I read how his mother sold drugs to make ends meet…I don’t know. It’s a catch-22. Just bad all around. Forgiveable yet unforgivable.

            • Well shyt that went without saying!! lol

          • Mochasister

            They’re both white, soft, and powdery. It could happen. But what I want to know is how the h*** do you leave enough cocaine around for it to be used to coat chicken?! That’s a lot of cocaine. And did little Bobby get his a** beat for wasting good product? No wonder Bobby been in love with the coco. It started at an early age with him.

            • This is literally a “don’t get high off your own supply “.

              • Mochasister

                Chile, whoever left that product lying around like that obviously didn’t grow up watching Miami Vice or Scarface. That was money that literally went up in smoke. I wonder if the chicken was good though. I bet whoever ate it had energy for hours!

            • Guest

              That’s the only part that has questioning the validity of the story. I read more of the excerpt and he says his mom although upset initially, but forgave him for at least attempting to cook something for them on his own. He claims it became a “family recipe” after that–I’m sideyeing that part.

              • Mochasister

                See, ain’t no drug dealer gon be understanding about you wasting their product on some damn chicken. So what did she tell her suppliers when they came looking for their money? I swear this incident sounds like a bad Afterschool Special episode minus the white savior.

                • Guest

                  “I swear this incident sounds like a bad Afterschool Special episode minus the white savior.”–Lol! So true.

        Cocaine marinade?

        • ChokeOnThisTea

          Girl. Sadly, the possibilities are endless.

        • Gibbous

          I wonder if it loses any potency when fried?

          • Val

            I’m going to guess it would become more potent. Freebasing makes it more potent, right?

            Side-note; spell check didn’t even flinch when I wrote ‘freebasing’. Interesting.

            • Gibbous

              And that’s the end of my cocaine knowledge. Trying to decide if it’s worth Googling. *The More You Know!* right?

      • He used the cocaine as flour. I’m sure everyone was bouncing off the walls with excitement with that chicken. LOL

        *Julia Child voice* “Now you have your 4 cups of flour, generously seasoned with salt, pepper, and cayenne. For that much flour you want, oh, say half an 8 ball — just enough for a pleasant lift. Whisk it in thoroughly. You want even distribution — a little bump in every bite.”

      There’s a music group out with the name Cocaine 80s. Their music is really only on YouTube. Common has performed with them a couple of time.

    The only thing better than reading this book would be getting to sit criss cross applesauce in a circle around Bobby as he reads it line by line.

    • Sigma_Since 93

      We need Dave Chapelle to come back with a Holllywood Story with Bobby Brown and Charlie Murphy.

    • MoJo

      The fact that he is reading the audiobook version with Floyd Mayweather-esque reading aptitude, that will be a close as you get to that! ????

      • Phil GoBeGreat

        YO!!!! I just listened to the audible preview on amazon… I dont thinK i can read the book when I can listen to him read it. This is going to be epic. I am thinking about walking to my car and listening for an hour during lunch.

        • Jennifer

          Lemme download that preview for the commute home.

    • AnswerMe

      Are you an educator?

      • Nik White

        Yeah – it was called sitting “Indian style” when I was in school.

        • AnswerMe

          Right. A friend told me they aren’t allowed to use that term anymore and so she always says “Criss cross applesauce.”

          • Phil GoBeGreat

            Criss cross apple sauce sounded better than indian style for some reason.

          • Mochasister

            I am a teacher (kindergarten and first and now fifth). Hardly anyone says Indian style but I don’t recall being told that we weren’t allowed to say it. I’ve also heard teachers say “pancakes and pretzels.”

      • Phil GoBeGreat

        I volunteer with kids and yes, using “Indian style” is non-pc

        • Mochasister

          It is. I used to say “pancakes and pretzels.”

    • Cheech

      “Line by line”

    • Jennifer

      Wait a minute! Will Bobby do the audiobook? I kinda want Samuel L. Jackson or Morgan Freeman to do it honestly. *fingers crossed*
