You Truly Belong with Us, Here among the Clouds

I love Star Wars as much as the next nerd, but this man was doomed the second his parents filled out the birth certificate.
Landocalrissan Butler, 25, of Winnikee Avenue, entered a guilty plea Tuesday in Dutchess County Court to attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony. Butler told Judge Thomas J. Dolan he had five small bags of crack in his pocket Dec. 22 when police arrested him on Morgan Avenue. He said he intended to sell the drugs.

Lordy, they name you after a bit character in Star Wars and don't even spell the name right? That's got to suck.

The one black guy in Star Wars is the guy who gets busted...sort of makes you think things haven't changed much, despite how long ago and far away.

Christ, that is priceless. The guy's 25, which means he was probably born right when "Empire" and Billy Dee were still on the screens.

I hope when he was sentenced, he kept saying "It's not my fault! They told me they fixed it!"

Five small bags of crack in his pocket...but a warehouse filled with Colt .45!

Works every time.

You one malt-liquor picker, Cold-Cock

On a college road trip to Atlanta, my roommate and I lifted a Colt 45 ad from a MARTA train, one that pictured Billy Dee in a white tuxedo with a red tie. And that smoothe, suave sonofabitch blessed our pad and watched over us for years to come.

A decade later, I was having brunch with my mother and sister at Tavern on the Green in Central Park, and Billy Dee was at the table across from us. Still smoothe, still suave, and still hanging out with a hot 20-year old supermodel.

Apparently, it really does work every time.

Yes, I know the adjective is spelled "smooth."

Stupid English language.
