How Do You Know He Didn’t Go to College?

Blonde: Well, I want to visit that country where they speak African!
Redhead: Oh, you want to go to Africa to learn how to speak African? That is so cool.
Black businessman shaking his head: Africa is a continent, not a country, [sighs], and there is no language called ‘African.’

Black businessman departs at 34th Street.

Blonde: How’s he going to tell me that when we went to college and he didn’t? Plus, I heard President Bush call Africa a country in a speech.

So I Dumped Him for the Cat

Chick: I bet he’s fuh-reaky in the sack.
Friend: Definitely.
Chick: No… Like fuh-reaky… Like, not like normal freaky, how everyone needs to get it once in a while, but, like, weird freaky — like pulling up your pants and finding the closest exit. Did I ever tell you about the ice cream?
Friend, laughing: No!
Chick: This one time he was like, ‘Let’s have some fun’ and decided to tie me up. And then to, like, build anticipation or whatever, he went and got a bowl of ice cream.
Friend: Shut up!
Chick: I’m serious… And then I guess my damn cat decided he wanted a snack, too!
Friend, hysterical: Shut up! I can’t breathe!

Or on Law & Order: SVU

White girl #1: Shit, did you just see those mounted horses?
White girl #2: No fuckin’ way… I can’t believe they have them here.
White girl #1: Yeah… In Central Park is one thing, but not in ghetto Brooklyn.
White girl #2: Yeah, the last thing I expected to see here is horses on cops… [Pause] Did I just say ‘horses on cops’? I meant cops on horses.
White girl #1: Yeah, I don’t think there’s ever a need to see horses on cops. Well, except maybe in Jeremy’s bedroom.
