GRAB YA AUNTIES
The best description of the Fantastic Voyage: It’s the Spring Break for grown folks. So you will see someone’s aunties, mommas, daddies, granddaddies and even great-grands, out here partying. I picture some of y’all telling your family that you’re going on the Fantastic Voyage and them thinking you’re sitting on a beach chair under a towel reading your Daily Devotion.
Let me be the first to tell you – your momma, auntie, grandaddy and grandmomma were likely partying to Snoop Dogg and possibly, although I can’t be sure it was your mama, even getting their twerk on. But here’s the thing – there is a pact aboard ship that you can’t tell the kids or grandkids how much fun you’re having.
You’ve got to keep the mystique alive so that us grown folks can continue to have a good time without you. Because if you knew, how much of a good time was being had, some of you young folks might get jealous or judgy and we don’t that.
Also, we must discuss a few things – there are a bunch of Dallas Cowboys fans in the world. I mean a whole lot. And there are a bunch of vendors who apparently sell or make shirts that allow you to represent every city, HBCU, fraternity, neighborhood, couple status, and regional area that you can imagine. Where do some of you go for these items? We’d like to know.
Also, please note, if you are a single woman or man, this ship is full of sexy grown people looking to mingle. Yes, plenty of couples do come together, but there is more than just food on the buffet at the Fantastic Voyage. There are a whole lot of tasty choices outside of it as well.
TOM JOYNER REALLY IS THE HARDEST WORKING MAN IN RADIO
We believe Tom has tapped into a vibranium source that allows him to get energy from his microphone or something, because whether you see him taking pictures with everyone around the ship and never losing patience or kindness, or partying along with the crowd during a concert, or doing a daily morning show from the ship, or hosting numerous events, or just being able to sustain this amazing event 19 years in a row, you realize that he more than lives up to his reputation as THWMIR.
