"This Moment in Nigga History"
by Reggie Dinkins, Jr


Today we take a peek into the Nigga Community a look at Clyde "Toothpick" Boodram, a scholar, and somewhat of a Renaissance Man. Boodram, affectionately nicknamed Toothpick throughout the Shaw community for having a toothpick in his mouth, and our behind his ear, has one of the highest street-aptitude test scores this side Detroit. It is said that Toothpick coined the phrase "he got stole" when Breaker Johnson got punched in the face after the 1970 Soul Train tryouts. Toothpick said that punch stole his manhood, and his dancemoves.

Toothpick was heralded as a street genious way back in 1962 where he forecasted in his almanac, "Use Me When the Plate is Clean", that heroin would be phased out very soon. Others scoffed at this fact, but sure enough crack rolled right in. He has also forecasted the number of liquor store robberies for the next ten years. Bass should endure only 5 over this time span,
if any of you were wondering.

Toothpicks forecasts were a marvel in themselves but the manner in which the information was presented absolutely damn-fabulous. For example, his forecast of the usage of a third dice stupified many of the games' greats, such as Denny "Denner Roll" Rowe. Here is a passage regarding this. "You better watch out, big money niggas they gonna put your lights out, bring a third dice to the game, that Denner Roll will never be the same".

Here is a passage from "Use Me When the Plate is Clean", on teenage pregnancy. "Hot pants will be the reason for a knocked up season, all them tight pants dont let the stuff do no breathin, they better take that chill pill because all these niggas are out for rabbit hunting season"

"im just the nigga in the seatbelt"
