One for the homies, two for the homelies.

Perhaps another for the homilies.

The act of "pouring one for your homies" is when someone will pour part or all of a bottle of liquour out on the ground signifying respect for friends that have died. This seems to have originated from gang culture, and the friend in question is usually one who died in relation to the gang's activities. Or so is my understanding.

When visiting public restrooms there are inevitably going to be pieces of toilet paper on the ground. Is the same principle at work?

So, would that be an homage to someone who died while urinating?

Only if they're a girl. In my experience, which is limited I grant you, boys need to wipe only when defecating. I pity the gangsta who buys the farm when he's dropping the Cosbys off at the pool.

Also, I forgot to mention earlier, your title on this one sent me into fits of laughter and the follow up "another for the homilies" made it even better. I give it 2 stars on the patented 2 star rating system.

Don't forget to pour one for Honah Lee. It was never the same after Puff vanished.
