It’s been a long, stressful year. The world lost David Bowie, Prince, and Muhammad Ali. Hillary Clinton lost the election to President-elect Donald Trump, despite “winning” by over 2.5 million votes (and counting). Between the Dakota Access Pipeline, the seemingly daily mass shootings, Zika, and Brexit, 2017 can’t get here soon enough. The new year probably won’t change things, but at least it will put an end to an especially sh*tty 365 days.
Or should I say sheeeeeeeeeit-y 365 days?
Isiah Whitlock Jr.’s had himself a fine career, appearing in everything from Enchanted to Chappelle’s Show to Veep, but he’ll always be defined by one role — Senator Clay Davis on The Wire — and one word: “sheeeeeeeeeit.” Granted, there are worst things than being associated with one of the greatest TV shows of all-time, but unlike, say, Matt LeBlanc, who will probably punch the next stranger who asks him, “How you doin’?” Whitlock has leaned into his catchphrase, even going so far as to teach people how to say it correctly.
With the end of the year in sight, bobblehead tycoon Whitlock took to Twitter to propose an official slogan for 2016. Try to guess what it is.
I would have also accepted, “The f*ck did I do?”
