Of course, the perpetrator was white, middle aged, and said this without a hint of irony.
And which also, of course, led to the following discussions at our table:
- Anyone under the age of 35 probably has no frame of reference for this. Which makes it the perfect phrase replacement for "You kids get off my lawn" (said while shaking a fist at trespassing whippersnappers).
- You know that if anyone was going to heckle the comedians that night, it was Mister "Homey don't play that."
- How judgmental we'd feel if it turned out the gentleman we overheard did, in fact, know someone named "Homey" and he was, in fact, referring to something that Homey did not play.
- If that was the case, his grammar was still horrendous and he deserved to be judged
Awkward high five,
