True pimp niggaz spend no dough on the booty
"I learned it by watching you dad..." First the guy gets Reebok, among others, to sponsor his post-MTV awards bash. But that wasn't good enough. For his recent 30th birthday party, Puffy P. Diddy turned towards the King of Marrakech -- who forked over $1 million for the event. From MSNBC.com:

"P. Diddy’s birthday bash in Marrakech coincided with the start of Ramadan, when the sale of liquor is limited — so crates were shipped in ahead of time. But the fact that King Mohammed paid for the $1 million bash didn’t please some advocates of the poor in a country where so many go hungry. The King said the party will help promote tourism. . . ."

And I just thought my marketing strategy was good! But quick question... When you're thinking "big birthday bash", how in the hell does Marrakech pop into your brain?

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

"I learned it by watching you dad..."
Can I just tell you how much that PSA makes me laugh everytime I see it. I was just telling a friend the other day about how I thought it was the funniest one.
And yeah Marrakech doesn't come to mind when thinking birthday bash.

For some reason, when I think Marrakech, I think Hookah pipe. Perhaps that's how P.Diddy came up with the idea?

(also, for some reason, Marrakech makes me think of the Cheshire cat from Alice in wonderland. Must be the Hookah.)

I also think Hookah pipe...and couscous...and lots of pillows on a big plump cushion and gauzy fabrics hanging from the ceiling and warm weather. Sounds like a party to me.

When I bite into a York peppermint patty, I get this strange sensation...

Puffy is the PT Barnaum of our age. It's hard to argue with success, even if you aren't buying what he's selling.

How the h--- will it help tourism? Are there actually hordes of people willing to travel overseas to places P. Diddy has graced with his presence? "Oooh... just think, P. Diddy was in this same city just last year! Honey, his poop went through the same sewage system ours did!"
