It was a fake advice column that they ran with a picture of Joe Frazier, I believe, as Trubba Man. A picture kind of like that one on the right. Maybe it was Ken Norton, I dunno. But I think it was a boxer at the very least. It wasn't the smartest feature published, and in retrospect it was probably pretty offensive to African-Americans. But for some reason, I have never forgotten it.
A typical letter would read as follows:
Dear Trubba Man,
My girlfriend recently broke up with me and she threw all of my clothes out on the front lawn. What should I do?
To which Trubba Man would most likely reply,
If it were me, I'd kill da bitch! But seeing as how you seems like a wussy kind of guy, here's whatcha gonna want to do. Blah blah blah.
And then he would go on about exacting his revenge in some funny/demeaning/stereotypical way. It was mostly funny because of the picture of Joe (or Ken or whomever).
Does anyone out there remember this feature from National Lampoon? Am I the only one? I think Trubba Man would have had a field day with the Michael Jackson funeral. Seeing as he was a wussy kind of guy and all.
And in totally un-related meanness, which slack-eyed monster is more awful to look at:
Forrest Whitaker or Paris Hilton? I'm choosing Paris. I'm a hetero white guy, but I would totally stick it to Forrest given the choice of the two.
Because she makes me ill.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Wow, that last part was really mean, wasn't it?
