Sometimes, you gotta stand up and claim your kin even in the face of foolery. Like Coolio, who refuses to let go of his struggle braids, despite the fact that his head looks like the red sea parted.
Last year, I stumbled upon the gift below. Someone’s uncle was walking around with a unibraid on his scalp like it was ok and I just wonder why.
But… why? And which one of you braided your uncle’s hair into this one lonely line? I’m so anti the ability to can right now. I’m just unable to come up with the logic that told this man that the move was to walk out the house with a line of hair behind his ear and not much else. Bless his heart.
My readers are notoriously foolish and their comments on my Facebook fan page had me in tears.

LMAOOOO! I can’t e’em deal. But yeah… which one of your uncles is this? Also, why did y’all let him show up at the church barbeque like this? You ain’t right AT ALL.
