On his radio show the other day, Stephen A. Smith had SOMETHING or OTHER to shout about DEMARCUS Cousins JOINING the WARRIORS when he—aw, hell, just listen to it:


Anyone else reminded of Beaker from the Muppets?

(I only decided to blog this because I suddenly felt compelled to start searching for videos of Beaker from the Muppets at 9 a.m.)

These are people who’ve never had to use the word “meme” in real-life conversation, which is something to which we should all aspire. I’m totally going to start saying “mimi” from now on, too.
