    Anyone see that verizon commercial where the kids get the enV phone from verizon and he asks something like what did dad get. It sure sounds like he says dad got hoes.

    Does anyone else think this guy sounds like the voice behind Cleveland in "Family Guy"?

    Somewhat. But I was watching some of the behind the scenes stuff on one of the Family Guy DVD's, and leaned something somewhat disturbing. There isn't a single black person on the writing staff, not even the vocalist for Cleveland. Given the amount of racist jokes, I had taken them as tongue in cheek. But when it's just a bunch of white people making jokes about 'racism', it's somehow not as funny anymore...

    I believe it is " 'ho's " as it's a contraction of "whores".

    That is exactly what I thought he said! I busted out laughing. But then my sister clarified it. It was good while it lasted, and I keep thinking he says that.

    That commercial cracks me up. I don't know why I find it so funny, but I laugh every time.

    I didn't think that black people use the word "hosed" anyway:confused: . But that is what he says in the commercial.

    Maybe they were trying to broaden their market. :D Mmm, now I'm trying to think if I've heard a black man say "hosed." ;)

    Despite knowing this, I spell it "hoe" as well. Well, not that I spell it often....

    lol. Maybe they used the word "hosed" on purpose to create a buzz and make people talk about it. No one can call it racism or anything, but at the same time we can wonder if he said "hoes", "hos", "hosed", etc. Very clever by the marketing people. Or just dumb luck :).

    Either way, lots of people are now talking about Verizon because of "hoes". Ahem, I mean "hosed". :D

    In the Ludacris song "Area Codes", the lyrics are spelled:
    I got hoes....in different area codes...

    Hmmmm. :confused: lol.

    I don't think there's been consistency about it. ;) Maybe at the World Summit of Hip-Hop Artists at the Hague in 2008, we'll get some final answers. God knows hip-hop has needed an international steering committee for some time! :D

    My other observation is that, if I had text messaging when I was in grade school, I would have gotten so little work done. :eek: And my parents would've been very upset about the bill! ;)

    Under the dashboard dictionary, only the word "ho" comes up as prostitute. Hoe just comes up as the gardening device.

    Why? Can black people only make black jokes, and white people only make white jokes, and christians only make christian jokes and hindus only make hindu jokes?

    Look at the writers for TV shows and movies and they'll mostly be white males. It's not like Family Guy is unique in this aspect.
