Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shawn Wayans (star of the hit prime-time WB Network Television show The Wayans Bros.), Chris Spencer (host of the upcoming national late night talk show Vibe), and Suli McCullough (up-and-coming comedian, actor, writer) bring their lively brand of humor to the page in a book sure to tickle city- and country-bound alike.  More than a place, the authors remind us, "ghetto" is a state of mind; "If Hillary Clinton ever picked up Chelsea from school with rollers in her hair...guess what?  The First Lady be ghetto."

Among other ways to tell if you're ghetto:

You can read your haircut

You throw a pool party at the fire hydrant

You buy pagers to match your outfits

You go to church just to pick up women

Your fingernails are longer than your fingers

You have a car phone and no car

You take a bubble bath with dishwashing liquid

You get into a fistfight while you're pregnant

You missed the birth of your child because you were playing Sega

You named your daughters after cars you can't afford

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Jeff Foxworthy's bestselling "You Might Be a Redneck If...", three up-and-coming comedians take readers on a hilarious trip through the 'hood', hysterically satirizing ghetto living with a light-hearted tone and laugh-out-loud quips.
