Only the merest attenuated connection to the post (good works), but: LB, you're being paged.
i was telling someone at the meetup that i remembered from the internets that mutombo was a major charitable force in the congo. i love it when random factual assertions turn out to be true. we should all sex mutombo tonight.
From Unfogged, maybe? It's come up before.
2: "I'm a tool. A tool, tool, tool, with no college loans. Hatin' on the JFK, though. Tool."
Maybe "sexing Mutombo" should be the new slang for "doing good works." So, for example, when ac wonders if she ends up paying less attention to worthy charities in her private life because she's doing good works as her work, she's asking whether she pays less attention to charity because she sexes Mutombo at the office all day, every day.
What's weird about the link in 7, given one of today's other big stories, is the chosen metaphor of setting his computer on fire.
I'd actually kind of forgotten that, but that might be why ac sprang to mind for the example.
Alternate title: Who Wants To Emulate Mutombo?
Wait, was "Who Wants to Sex Motumbo" supposed to be a proposal for a quiz show? I had never gotten that bit -- thot it was just a catch-phrase.
Just in general, or as regards a specific issue?
"Mutombo is attributed with coining the phrase, 'Who wants to sex Mutombo?', which he allegedly developed as a pick-up line during his Georgetown days. The phrase has achieved cult status among basketball fans of both genders, though there is no evidence he ever said it and it is likely an urban legend."
To 12? Did I miss the point of your q?
That's so weird -- when I clicked on your "Illumination" before I was spirited away to some blog about "Grammar Police" -- presumably maintained by Ben or somebody -- now it is pointing to a Wikipædia article with an answer to my question. Thanks, and sorry for the misunderstanding.
"Presumably maintained by Ben or somebody," heh.
15: I thought the phrase "Who wants to sex Mutombo?" was supposedly made public during that court case in which a bunch of NBA players testified about their doings at that Atlanta strip club.
The claim is that he came into a NW DC bar, right after a big Georgetown win, spread his arms wide, and asked, "Who wants to sex Mutombo?"
I heard that he would regularly make entrances at bars and parties by opening his arms and asking "Who will fuck Dikembe?". It is, in fact, a great way to enter a party.
Friend of mine from law school who attended G'Town with Mutombo said he witnessed it at a party, only it was "Who wants to sex Dikembe?"
