And I'm Proud to be an American...

At first glance you might think this picture is from "The Wire" - a dapper don or possibly some sort of mid-level pimp posing with Maryland State Legislators...



But if you are from the DMV (D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) you know better than that...You know that official looking hustler is none other than Chuck "The Godfather of GoGo" Brown. And those aren't state legislators; those are legit U.S. Congressmen...and the crazy homophobic guy from "Grey's Anatomy"

For the uneducated masses who read this blog - GoGo is a type of funk-like music that started in D.C. in the 1970s...Unless you grew up listening to GoGo on Friday nights on WPGC or WKYS, you have a) probably never heard it before 2) will hate it when you hear it III) are massively retarded because GoGo is - as the kids say these days - "the jam"...

As a semi related tangent, while attending the wedding of a certain former high school girlfriend of mine and friend of this brain trust, another unnamed friend who I will cryptically refer to as "Rob" (I'd like to see the Commi-Nazis try and break that code) had the band play the classic and super appropriate - for a wedding with grandparents in attendance - E.U. song "Da Butt".

Yours in Sardines, Hey...and Pork and Beans,
Agent Beero
