Sisqó Finally Explains The Real Meaning Of 'Dumps Like A Truck'

The year was 2000. My cousins and I had just been dropped off at the mall, a sick $20 bill in tow. After waving goodbye to our parents chauffeurs, we bolted to the nearest Wet Seal, where we proceeded to select matching pairs of thong underwear, each adorned with a rhinestoned butterfly. We giggled almost to the point of hyperventilation fantasizing about how hot we’d look with the glittery insects perched oh-so-maturely above our low-rise jeans. 

For this heinously inappropriate fashion misstep, I have one man to blame: Mark Althavean Andrews, better known as Sisqó.

Hey, Girl, The History Of The Word ‘Girl’ Is Actually Crazy

There’s “gal,” there’s “lady,” and now, there’s “kween” (comma, “yas”).

The ways modern girls evade calling each other “girls” are myriad, but most of them take on the same semi-ironic tone, mocking the days when femininity, monolithic as it was, could be neatly contained within the parameters of a word.

As much as those old-timey words smack of condescension ― “ladies” seems at home in the mouth of a suited courter, verbally italicized ― they can also generate feelings of solidarity among women, and so we use them, half-seriously. “Lady” has a disparaging air; it implies that a woman behaves as she “should.” “Gal” isn’t as bad, but it harkens back to a time when women had fewer rights. When we use these words on our own terms, we’re giving them a new life.

Usain Bolt Is Just Too Flippin' Quick For This Flipbook Artist

Even flipbook artists struggle to keep up with Olympic champion Usain Bolt.

Ben Zurawski ― aka The Flippist ― paid tribute to the fastest man on the planet this week by illustrating an amusing hand-drawn booklet (see above).

But instead of drawing one of the Jamaican track star’s historic gold medal runs at Rio 2016, the cartoonist opted to show just how far the sprinter was ahead of his rivals.

Dang he’s fast!” Zurwaski commented on the YouTube video, which shows him flipping through the book. “Get that gold Bolt!”
