How to Act on the 5th. November 4, 2008

This was emailed to me a couple days ago so I’m sharing.

barack-obama-family-7After watching the final debate the other night, it dawned on me that Obama could actually win this thing.  If that happens, there will be a lot of people (some of our co-workers included) who will be afraid that an Obama presidency will usher in the end of days.  They’ll be watching us on November 5th (the day after the election) for signs of the end times. To keep the peace and keep a lot of folks from getting nervous, I think we should develop a list of acceptable celebrations and behaviors we should probably avoid – at least for the

first few days:


1.       No crying, hugging or shouting ‘Thank you Lord’ – at least not in public


2         No high-fives – at least not unless the area is clear and there are no witnesses


3         No laughing at the McCain/Palin supporters


4         No calling in sick on November 5th. They’ll get nervous if too many of us don’t show up.


5         We’re allowed to give each other knowing winks or nods in passing.  Just try to keep from grinning too hard.


6.        No singing loudly, We’ve come this Far By Faith  (it will be acceptable to hum softly)


7.        No bringing of  barbeque ribs or fried chicken for lunch in the company lunchroom for at least a week (no chitterlings at all) (this may make us seem too ethnic)


8.        No leaving kool-aid packages at the water fountain (this might be a sign that poor folks might be getting a break through)


9.        No Cupid Shuffle during breaks (this could indicate a little too much excitement)


10.      Please no Moving on Up music  (we are going to try to remain humble)


11.      No doing the George Jefferson dance (unless you’re in your office with the door closed)


12.      Please try not to yell—-BOOOO YAH!


13.      Just in case you’re wondering, Doing the Running Man, cabbage patch, or a backhand spring on the highway is 100% okay.


14.      No cussing out your boss (of another persuasion) because ‘I’ve been waiting for this day all my life!’


15.      Don’t go into the stores asking for a discount because the President is all of a sudden a distant relative (he my aunts, cousin’s nephew’s uncle).


16.      Don’t go out and get drunk and get into it with a Police Officer telling him you now have new rights as an African American and shouting ‘We have Arrived!’  (your butt will still go to jail)


17.      No naming every baby boy born in November Barak or Obama, we’ll have way too many in the classroom with the same name.  Or if it’s a girl, no names like Baraka, Barakiana, Barakisha, Barakeema, Barakamichelle’, Obamashay, Obamarosa, Obama-mama, or Obamichellerak!


18.      No talking smack about politics when you still don’t know whatcha talkin’ about.  (this will be a good time to read more to learn more about our government)


19.    Don’t praise him over God! He’s still just a man… a good man that we’re very proud of, yet still a man.


20.    DO allow him to be a positive example in your life and walk with your head held high when the haters hate, maintain your dignity when faced with adversity,  and strive to make this a better world for our children (grand-children)!


If I’ve missed anything feel free to add to the list. I just want to make sure we’re all on the same page when Obama brings this thing home on November 5th.

Now (if you are able to in your state) go get your early vote on and let’s make this thing happen!!!

I’m voting today! 24 hours til OBAMAnation.

    This is good! Especially #17. I can feel a wave of Barakisha’s emerging through the scene. Also a great point with #18. I had no idea the real difference between Rebulican and Democrat. Please people…do your homework and get ready to help build our Government and inform the world that we know what we are doing!!!

  8. It’s amazing that when “they” are doing something ie. sports and painting themselves blue and yelling for their team they don’t have a list of rules being circulated. Rules or no rules I think that I have enough faith that we know how to act and a week later I think that fact has been proven. BTW I love the blog.

  9. cuzzo Says:


    Thanks! I love that you love the blog…lol

    and they might have rules too…but Im not an insider to know. WP don’t follow no damn rules anyway – that’s how they get what they want. There was a south park episode about it…white people cheat! lol
