Homeboy Naifeh 

Last week, the Scientology-loving, former South Park chef Isaac Hayes dined on raccoon meat at House Speaker Jimmy Naifeh’s annual “Coon Supper” in Covington.

At the annual political schmoozefest, Tipton county native Hayes greeted Naifeh as his “homeboy.” Hmmm….we see a rap album in Naifeh’s future. Could Homeboy Naifeh be the next Crunchy Blac?

And what’s with the “coon supper”? Apparently, it’s been going on every year since 1945, but doesn’t that seem a bit Confederate South? Come on, it’s 2006. Let’s get a little more sophisticated. Like say sushi?
