The Origins Of The Kanye Shrug

There are only four universal truths around the TSS e-office:

1) Aquemini shits on everyone.
2) The Wire shits on everyone.
3) *Kanye shrug* is a great form of communication.
4) Dave Chappelle is master-class comedy.

And we hold these truths to be self-evident.

If you’ve been hanging out the office long enough, you know how deep-seeded my/our love for Chappelle is (the offer still stands, Dave). Suffice it to say, I was watching a Chappelle’s Show rerun last night and realized that Dave, once again, was ahead of his time. In his pilot episode in 2004, before his flagship sketch depicting the life of a Black White Supremacist, Chappelle let fly one of the most well-timed Kanye Shrugs ever documented.

00:22 mark. Then enjoy the rest, and wallow in sadness that the man is off the airwaves.
