Alright kids, another Monday means another man worthy of the AWESOMENESS…
Felicia “Snoop” Pearson
(Born May 18, 1980 – Still kickin’)
WHA’….A WOMAN!!!!!! That’s right, Boners….my blog…my rules!
I’m not sure if any of you have heard of THE WIRE…it’s on HBO…well, it was on HBO…the last season just aired not too long ago. WAIT…don’t say anything…We’ve been watching the show on dvd…We haven’t seen the last season yet…no spoilers!
Anyway, Snoop has quickly become a favorite in the Canacorn home. She scares the shit out of us white folks…what with her bizarro Baltimore accent, sleepy eyes, and questionable moral compass. After a few episodes The Wife started to wonder if Snoop wasn’t just the Real Deal. Not just an actress, but someone really from those scary Baltimore streets…
According to my buddy, Wiki….
“Pearson was born premature to two drug-addicted and incarcerated parents and reared in an East Baltimore foster home. Hours old and about 3 pounds, doctors didn’t expect her to live. She was so small she was fed with an eyedropper until she grew stronger. Days went by and she continued to survive, so Snoop was made a ward of the court and reared in an East Baltimore foster home.
While other 12-year-olds were in school, Snoop was learning the drug game. At 14, Snoop was sentenced to 8 years in prison for the second degree murder of Okia Toomer. She said her life turned around at 18, when a man she called Uncle Loney, a local drug dealer who looked out for her and sent her money in prison, was shot and killed. It was he who had given her the nickname “Snoop” because she reminded him of Charlie Brown’s favorite beagle Snoopy in the comic strip Peanuts.
She finished school while behind bars. After earning her GED in prison, Pearson was released in 2000. She landed a local job making car bumpers, she said, but was fired two weeks later after her employer learned she had a prison record.”
Real enough for me.
Stephen King even said this about her:
“…is perhaps the most terrifying female villain to ever appear in a television series.”
(Read his thoughts on The Wire right here!)
Oh, You have to check out this scene from The Wire…don’t worry, there’s no spoilers and if you don’t watch the show I think you’ll still enjoy it.
SNOOP BUYS A NAIL GUN
Get this, she’s even written a book!
So, welcome to the club, Snoop! You are truly MANLY enough to hang with us on Mondays!
*If you noticed, I’ve permanently added “I hate sports” to Man-Up Mondays…just for my buddy Troy. If you love sports (unlike myself) hop on over and peep TROY’S THOUGHTS ON SPORTS…it’s totally all about sports…I can’t stand to even look at it.
