Toure and The Great Skittle Swindle of 2012

Toure is not what you'd call, what's the word, at average or near-average intelligence level.

He's dumb. Extremely dumb.

Update: Many people are asking "Who the eff is 'Toure'?"

Good question. Honestly, he's nobody. He appears on MSNBC and stuff as an Expert on Being Black. He's an idiot. I've goofed on him before.

Back to post:


Because some people chose to buy Skittles as some sort of dumb tribute to Trayvon Martin, Toure is now agitating that The Community or whatever should get a share of their profits.

This is obviously not the central issue but Skittles' profiteering thanks to us buying it bc of Trayvon obviates some financial donation.

Obviates?

He means "suggests" or "demands" -- that this situation necessitates that Skittles pay The Community or whatever some blood money.

Obviates means the exact opposite of that. "Z obviates Y" means that x makes y unnecessary or forestalls it or prevents it.

Dictionaries, how do they work?

Obligates? A commenter suggests that's what he meant, but suggests that "auto-correct' made the change.

Is "obviates" really high in a computer dictionary's list of active vocabulary words?

Skillets? Trayvon was armed with skillets?

You could ring someone's bell with a skillet. If you have a whole bunch of skillets, you could throw them like, um, Throwing Skillets.


Thanks to lacyunderalls.
