Women (And Men) Be Shoppin!

The "women be shoppin" joke has been alllll over TV and the internet, but it always brings me back to the first movie I had on VHS tape to go with my TV/VCR combo I got for Christmas in 1997. That movie was The Nutty Professor. This post isn't about the Nutty Professor (disappointing, I know!), but do yourself a favor and reminisce the Dave Chappelle comic spoof here that started it all.
