Guess Who's Coming to Stupid?

Happy Hump Day Bitches, now let’s get down to some serious business.

Look at this picture…


It’s a picture of Jayman and myself that we sometimes use for our I’m With Stupid Blog Talk Radio show.

Now, we have some folks that listen and join in on the radio fun with regularity, however, Jay and I have noticed something about our audience that we’d like to correct.

You see, while not an actual picture of our typical audience, the following is probably pretty damn representative of the cultural demographic of said audience…


As you can see, while there is an occasional visit from a lovely Latina babe (not pictured), the hosts and typical audience for I’m With Stupid are bland, generic, white men and women.

Jayman and I discussed in our pre-production meeting that we want to be more inclusive when it comes to our audience so eventually a typical cross-section of the IWS audience looks more like this…


It shouldn’t be that hard to find a couple of black people to join in and add a little soul to the stupid. After all, black people mock the stupid just like us white folk.

And just like the white demographic, there are plenty of black people who ARE stupid as well, like Latoya Jackson, Chris Brown, and of course Sherri Shepherd of The View…


Another reason it shouldn’t be too hard to draw in a black audience is because of Jay and me. I mean, just like Donald Trump, we are good with the black…we are cool with the black…in fact, we are down with the black.

So that is your assignment folks…Help Jay and I bring a black person to the dinner table of humor that is I’m With Stupid.

Hell, if you find one who is interested but needs a little coaxing, tell him or her that if they promise to show up for a show, we will for that episode re-title our show, I B Wif Stupid ‘n’ Shit.

If they call in and/or are really funny and/or interesting we could even put them to work as a regular on I’m With Stupid.

You know…something like a weekly question/answer segment called...Aks R Token.

Oh yeah, I’m sensing a wave of cultural diversity that will wash all over I’m With Stupid.

If you find a black person who perhaps would like to speak with Jay or myself prior to any type of commitment, have them e-mail either one of us and encourage the person of color to use our names that the bruthas and sistahs in the ’hood call us…

M Squared Rose, and J-Bone Thug.

We appreciate your help in this matter of helping bring people of all races closer together.

Hopefully, we can get this done for Saturday’s show which airs May 14th at 6:30 PM EDT, when we will discuss graduations and school antics, but more on that and a special IWS announcement tomorrow.

Now get out there, and rustle us up some black people; the future of IWS and racial harmony is at stake.

Cheers, and Word!!

Surely one or two of our listeners know a black person. I have a few on my on friend's list on Facebook, but I don't want to impose on 'em.

Jay: Y'know? I don't think I have any on FB. Odd. Maybe I can see if Tyra Banks is up to coming on. I'll call her lawyer, she gave me his number. Cheers Jay!!

While I'd love to help I'm not sure that my friends would find you their cup of tea.

Matt-Man said...

Michele: What!? Are you saying your freinds prefer Orange Pekoe to Irish Breakfast tea? Cheers Michele!!

Michele said...

I was going to say, sweet over unsweet but I like your answer better.

Matt-Man said...

Michele: Ha. That works too. Cheers Michele!!

Sounds like you boys are under the gun to meet some type of self imposed quota. Are you guys vying for Government Dollars? I'll wait until you need a Hispanic. Then I will help you meet your quota!

Knight said...

In my plethora of racially unique (to your show) friends, I can't think of a single one that I feel safe in subjecting to you after this post. Good luck boys.

Well as you may know I am down with the blacks. I grew up in the hood so I am can answer all your black questions. Hell check out my facebook friends list. Its full of them. I also have black chil'ren. But not so sure who I could subject to this. However it sure makes me smile that you try to include my brothas and sistas.

Matt-Man said...

Joker: But you have been on I'm With Stupid live on line. We love you guys. Wait. That didn't sound good, did it? Cheers Joker!!

Knight: What? What'd I do? I am merely asking for a little less John Boy and a little more Weezie. Is that sooooo wrong? Cheers Knight!!

Matt-Man said...

Raquel: I appreciate you acknowledging our attempt to reach out to minorities. We're all about inclusiveness. Cheers Sexy!!

Knight said...

Oh you didn't do anything. It's just that I don't want my black friends getting all Honkey on me!

Matt-Man said...

Knight: Ha...I think I can get more than a couple to call in and provide "color commentary". Hey-Oooooo. Cheers Hot Stuff!!
