Feeding Stupidity to our Young

When I played a game of tennis recently with a younger opponent, I became engrossed in the ground beneath my feet. This is why: 

The cracks in the cement of the high school tennis court resembled the San Andreas fault, and I suddenly felt concerned about earthquakes. It was also a good way to distract my competitor. But I soon found myself distracted as well. By stupers (short for remarkably stupid persons).

The high school football team was practicing on the field just outside the tennis courts. Stupers (possibly the coaches or other adults in charge) played what some might call music, to entertain the team during practice. But I don’t believe it was music at all.


If I was scrubbing out a sewer pipe, it’s what I’d listen to, to accentuate my misery and doleful mood. These were the lyrics:

Me and you, yo’ mama and yo’ cousin
Baby we can make love to a rap song
A milli, a milli, a milli, a-muthaf-cka I’m ill…

What? I asked no one in particular.

Then the next tune came on. It was another uplifter:

       First things first, I poppa, freaks all the honeys. Dummies – playboy bunnies, those wantin’ money…

I did a quick translation of the lyrics to make sure I wasn’t making a big thing of something small: Generally, I engage in deviant sexual activity with all kinds of women, including, but not limited to, stupers, nude magazine models and prostitutes.


Is this what we want our young to listen to while on school grounds, or any grounds, playing sports or whatever? This was not a high school in an oppressed area, unless by oppressed we mean consisting of a high stuper population. But, of course, stupidity is a worldwide epidemic. 




I’ve heard a lot of talk lately of alien landings. And not the E.T. brand of friendly, cute and cuddly aliens that sit nicely in bicycle baskets. Is this new alien form messing with our young? I placed a call to the UN. Some of my concerned readers may be asking right now, what happened to your tennis match? I successfully stalled the game with the discussion of earthquakes, rap music and aliens, which was a good thing, as I was leading 3-2.



Why did I call the UN? Because I wanted to speak with Mrs Othman, who is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa). She is the designated official greeter to aliens. I wanted to know what the aliens, if any, that she’d recently encountered were like. Are they tired of sabotaging our nuclear missiles and instead replacing Mozart, the theme from Rocky and Queen’s “We are the Champions” with rap music in order to corrupt the minds of our young while they practice sports?


Mrs. Othman would not take my call.


I’m guessing, based on all of my previous studies which, as you know, I often conduct at the spur of any moment, that the onslaught of rap was the handiwork of idiots. Instead of making the worthwhile effort to uplift, inspire and motivate young minds or any minds, stupers prefer to fascinate those around them with the depressing, the obscene, and oftentimes the morbid. Don’t fall for it.

    I just love your last paragraph. All the stupid people I know try to feed me a diet of negative, depressing and obsene stuff! I’m really sick of it. I’m all for uplifting!

    I went back to my son’s high school and saw the same thing…or heard it. They played it through warm ups, in the time outs during the game, while the band played. There must be a goal, aliens are the only explanation.

    You know what’s funny (maybe its sad, not funny) the public schools always ask for money to improve. Unfortunetly, nothing ever changes. “Music” is what it’s been called; to me, it’s just noise.

    I love that you were actually able to make out the lyrics and share them here. Explains alot, doesn’t it…

  6. Elaine says:

    This is truly depressing that the adults in charge would consider this appropriate music,(I call it noise as well).

    I so agree with this! I don’t get it, I really don’t. I don’t get what attracts young people to this. It’s not creative. It’s not interesting. It’s repetitive, dull, base, moronic. Frequently it copies the tune or rhythm of a previous hit, written by someone who WAS creative.
    But worst of all is what you said: the profound negativity. It HAS to seep in and affect the unsuspecting minds of our precious children. And to think that this was being inflicted by adults who should know better!

    It is this kind of music that helped me make the conscious decision some years ago to eliminate all negative music from my life, and listen only to what you describe as the uplifting. I have since generalized that to books, movies, tv shows, blogs and people. And I’m not done eliminating yet. Would love to eliminate those responsible for what you heard!!

  8. That first song you heard must have been an outkast/lil wayne remix because you put the words of two different songs together….or maybe you are a DJ in the making. Whoever plays music as they practice sports are not in their right mind…


  9. I’m pretty positive this subject was dealt with on Nightline.
