Three Rappers To Watch In 2011

A friend told us a joke the other day that made us chuckle, and we don't chuckle. We either laugh hard, or we don't, so you know it was special.

Our friend asked us, "What's the one thing your girlfriend could tell you that would make you happy and cry at the same time?"

"What? Tell me!"

"Honey, of all your friends, you're the best in bed," he said.

We began to laugh then retracted quickly; hence the chuckle, and then got suddenly serious.

Damn, that would inspire incredible pride, we thought. And then the ugly cry.
