703JuiceAtomic: Q&A by JM
I’ve decided to make “Q&A” a regular fixture on 703JuiceAtomic.com. The #1 reason? Well, I love to create the most elaborate fake names to protect the “innocent.” Secondly, I just like to make people uncomfortable. Here’s round two:
Q: How can you be taken seriously as a poet when you also write rap songs? Nobody takes rappers seriously. ~Shank McFiddlesticks, Dublin, OH
A: Thanks for the question and the comment Shank. Contrary to your thinking, hip hop is a form of poetry. Perhaps when you tune into the radio and hear most of the commercial offerings that stations feed the people, you get disenchanted. There are real genuine lyricists still out there, I promise you- they do still exist. The commercial artists out there are far less poetic, driven by what the people consider entertaining. Not all of the rhymes I write are poetic works of genius, but word-play is a large component of everything I write. To answer your question, I’m not concerned with how people “take me.” Our lives are far to short to make everyone happy. Poetry comes in many forms, it’s just up to you to open your minds eye and recognize it. As far as rappers being taken seriously, Jay-Z’s bank account just laughed at that comment.
Q: Why do you think you’re so funny? ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: This isn’t a comedy site. I don’t claim to be funny, but I do play a doctor on tv.
Q: But when you write, you put in little snarky, sarcastic comments that make it seem like you wanna be a funny guy. Like right there, JUST NOW. ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: Am I clown, do I ammuse you? *Joe Pesci Voice.
Q: HAHAHA FUNNY GUY. ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: Why do you think I’m so funny?
Q: I don’t, why don’t you answer the question? ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: I did answer the question, then you answered your own question and then told me that I was indeed funny. Maybe I will start a comedy site. Thanks for the idea.
Q: Why do you even bother writing anything? You’re not funny, you’re not poetc and you’re lack inteligenes. ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: I tried once to be poetc, but then I found an “i” and became poetic. Inteligenes sound intriguing, but I assume you mean intelligence. You may be onto something though, because clearly I have to lack a little intelligence, I just responded to a nitwit five times.
Q: Who the hell says nitwit Grandpa? I had to google it to even know what that meant. And btw, **** (<expletive) you! I habe two degree and might as well be called Alex Trabek. I answer lots of jeopardy questions. ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: Habe Lincoln called, he wants his top-hat back. I heard the temperature is going to be two degree warmer tomorrow, so dress accordingly. And “BTW” Alex asks the questions.
Q: SEE, WHY DO YOU THINK YOU’RE FUNNY? I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE. ~Kenny Chunkenloafer, Williamsburg, VA
A: You have inteligenes!
