MISSISSIPPI, BITCH 

MISSISSIPPI, BITCH

According to an article in the New York Post, Diane James of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and her husband, would-be city councilman Rick James, have learned a lot about Dave Chappelle's Comedy Central show: specifically, a skit involving a certain deceased superfreak named Rick James and the oft-repeated phrase, "I'm Rick James, bitch!"

In a letter to Comedy Central, the couple explained that "Due to the popularity of the Dave Chappelle show, people keep stealing our `Vote Rick James' yard signs ... we would appreciate a small campaign donation for more signs. ... Each time a sign is stolen, it costs us $4.75! Every time a `Rick James' piece runs on your show, we stand to lose dozens of signs overnight ... The yard signs have been spotted at least 100 miles from our home by truckers ... Young children on bikes scream, `I'm Rick James, bitch!' as we drive by in our car with our `Rick James' car signs. ... People even drive by our home and scream, `Super Freak.'"

Might we suggest: "Richard James for City Council." Just a thought, really. Plante: How It Looks
