EVERYBODY...

BLACK PEOPLE AND WHITE PEOPLE STOP HAVING FUNERALS!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

IF BIG MAMA IS 107 YEARS OLD,

WHAT THE HELL IS YOU HOLLAING FOR?

[LAUGHTER]

STOP ASKING CRAZY QUESTIONS WHEN SOMEBODY THAT OLD DIED.

MY GREAT GRANDMA WAS 107 YEARS OLD WHEN SHE DIED.

A LADY COME OVER TO THE HOUSE SIT ON THE COUCH AND LOOK

RIGHT AT ME AND SAID,"WHAT HAPPENED TO HER?"

[LAUGHTER]

"SHE WAS PLAYING BASKETBALL AND SHE STOPPED BREATHING,

WHAT YOU THINK HAPPENED TO HER?"

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

AND BLACK PEOPLE, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.

IF POOKY SOLD DRUGS,IF POOKY WAS IN A GANG,

YOU CANNOT SEND POOKY TO HEAVEN

BY WHAT YOU PUT IN THE OBITUARY.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

TALKING ABOUT "HE RECEIVED CHRIST AT AN EARLY AGE."

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

"HE GONNA HAVE HIS FUNERAL AT A CHURCH."

HE AIN'T BEEN TO CHURCHSINCE HE WAS SEVEN!

NEED TO HAVE HIS DAMN BODY RIGHT THERE ON THE DANCE FLOOR

AT THE CLUB.

I WENT TO A DRUG DEALER FUNERAL. HE'S SO BIG TIME,

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

I SAID, "HELL, NAW."WE PUT STUFF IN THE CASKET, MAN.

THEY GET PITIFULAT THESE FUNERALS, MAN.
