Nice to see something like this on Fark. RIP Uncle Lionel.

At an outdoor concert a few years back I spotted Uncle Lionel, looking slicker than the back seat of Shaft's El Dorado, coming towards me through the crowd. I announce to the people around me : Uncle Lionel's in the House ! Hide the women and the liquor ! Uncle Lionel stops and thinks of a second and says "Well hide the liquor anyway!"

My hero forever.

Subby here. I never met Uncle Lionel but I danced my ass off to his beat on many occasions. I don't think I have ever missed New Orleans as badly as I did last night when I started seeing posts on Facebook and Twitter about the second-line on Frenchmen.
