The One Who Smelled it Dealt it

Unbearable.

I remember that saying from the early days of being a child.
It was the going-response when a foul smell was on the prowl.

The phrase was used to halt suspicion; a verbal deflection from the smell emitter.
Still, it didn’t deter the gas that came to pass; farters aren’t quitters.

But farters are the ones who deal the gas,
then they announce the funk followed by a weak laugh.

The laugh ends with them saying, “It wasn’t me.”
To farters, the attempt to deflect is always key.

The air is assaulted and all of their peers realize quick–
It’s so obvious that the one who smelled it dealt it.

This phrase is re-emerging and I am not a child.
Kavanaugh assaulting women and being offended at the recollection is wild.
He cries foul.

Any chance that you saw SNL?
Matt Damon to the coffin was the nail:

The prez bragged about grabbing women by the “P,”
then defends Kavanaugh’s innocence; wanting me to believe.

He’s crying foul for the farting child because he smells a lot like him.
If the Judiciary man-pack can’t see past their scrotum sacks
our justice system is gravely grim.

Are you still praying to God for a situational hem? I am.
Because when it comes to respecting women, America doesn’t give a damn.

They” are not alone in their actions, take a look around the world.
A lying male child is worth your while; to hell with an honest girl.

Do I take it personally? Yes, I do, just a little bit.
I’m like Janet Jackson – cock-eyed biases make me sick.

Get this right America, or that smell will lay claim to your ass,
I’m Qui
and America’s lack of wisdom is comparable to dirty-booty gas.

You think respecting women equally will unleash some kind of hell?
Consider that more women are voting for women to avoid sack smell.

Reel Talk

ReelTalk1SNL is short for Saturday Night Live and the abbreviation could easily dub as  Saturday Night Legend when you consider their longevity in the game (network television). Other sketch comedy shows have come and gone, but SNL remains the staple.

The Carol Burnett Show was on air for 11 years. Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In was on for 5 years, Mad TV for 14 years and In Living Color ran for a strong 4 years. However, SNL has been on for 38 years and still going.

Several years back I had a sketch comedy itch that I just could not scratch, (or find a reason to put one on), suddenly I hear that the annual family reunion was having a “talent show” category and well, if you’ve ever seen Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, then you know just how eager I was to spring into action and show my stuff. With a camcorder, a zany sense of humor and willing on-the-spot cast, I was able to put together a comedy sketch show that Mad TV would have (especially) loved. I was inspired by the comedic renderings of Orlando Jones, Debra Wilson and Nicole Sullivan. They made up the original 1995 cast of Mad TV and they were awesome. Silliness could get no better on a Saturday night and my comedic vibe was shaped in the shadows. I also took home the family reunion talent show crown.

SNL and Mad TV were both on the air at the same time and life was fine. Today, sketch comedy show choices are slim, yet the demand is still growing. I turned the subject over to a couple of our teen producers to see what kind of shows they were into and I off the top one yelled out, “So Random!” So Random! was a music comedy sketch show that ran on Disney and wikipedia states that it was only on the air for 1 season, (2011-2012). 1 season? I’m impressed with it’s lingering popularity. Much like Nickelodeons All That show or The Amanda Bynes Show.


All That started broadcast in 1995 starring Kenan and Kel, among other zany-witted adolescents. All That ran for 10 seasons (from 1995-2005) and THAT – my friend, is success! Amanda Bynes gained stardom from her cast work in All That and shortly thereafter she got her own show.

I’m not sure if a comedy sketch show will be born out of my new ventures, but the possibility and encouragement is certainly on deck. #ConsiderationIsKey

SNL is a great cup of joe – though I am focused on brewing tea,
and a teen comedy release is a great spend of creativity.

I’m a few years past my teens, though I’m surrounded by them daily.
History shows a good straight-man resides in the mouths of the babies.

So I’ve given the comedic pen to a few teen friends accompanying me –
they’re goofy and open beyond reel focused and ready to sketch comedy.

Nothing is funnier than life, so we will pull from it and insert silly drama.
We’ll laugh at it all, the big and the small – Scandal, Glee and Obama.

I thank SNL for the fantastic design.
I also thank Carol Burnett for sharing her comedic mind.

I am grateful to the writers that give of themselves to produce side-splitting scripts.
Show’s don’t just happen, so get-to clappin’ – writing sketch comedy is quite the quip.

Excited – I am indeed. I’ve got my work cut out today,
I’m Qui
And Monday’s are great days to research, script and play!

ACTION!
It can’t be work – its so much fun!
