Just a Rapper that Doesn't Rap But Boy Does He Know How to Sell

There are always a cast of characters outside the main courthouse. Usually it is homeless guys, but occasionally there are people that are trying to sell you something.  Typically that "something" turns out to be their homemade music CD.  I cannot even imagine what such things sound like.  So far I have been able to contain any impulse buying.  However, I recently met up with quite the salesman.

After crossing the street, I see this guy do a little dance that ends in a flourish and with his one arm out holding a CD.  You know I am a sucker for some street dancing.  So I laughed:

Me: Well, I like your presentation.
Him: Oh, baby I like  YOUR presentation.*
Me: Thank you, I am not interested in your CD.
Him: Are you sure? It has some good rapping.
Me: No thanks.
Him: But they call me the "Nerd Rapper."
Me: Wait! Are you calling me a nerd?
Him: Yes.
Me: Huh. Well I don't like rap.
Him: Me neither. That is why I only rap about important stuff like politics.
Me: I don't much like politics.
Him: Me neither. That's why this is about ufology which is about how aliens are invading our religion.
Me: I don't really believe in aliens.
Him: Me neither. That is why this rap is about education.
Me: You have a comeback for everything, don't you?
Him: Yeah, baby.

I have to give him props for trying and for making me laugh after a very difficult morning in court.

No, I did not buy the rap-that-isn't-rap-but-about-politics-or-aliens-or-education CD.  Probably my loss.

And for no other reason than I mentioned the word "rap" enjoy this funny commerical I only recently saw courtesy of Katelin:

*Yes that was said in a totally "I'm gonna sex you up" way.

By line 2 of your conversation I was laughing out loud.... Ha-ha-ha...

Patricia - Your husband is a very wise man.

jlynn - I have the best conversations at the courthouse and on the street. This is what you miss if you dont take the time to talk to people. Take that Little Miss Leave Me Behind When You Think People Are SCARY.

You should have bought the CD! Was this where I think it was? Why do people sell CD's outside of court? That seems like such a weird spot?

*~Dani~* said...

Jennifer - I should have! I think he would have accepted a small donation. No clue why people sell CDs outside of court. Doesn't seem quite like the audience one would look for.
