But what really got my attention was the use of _youse_  in place of
_you-all, y'all_, followed by the fact that the "star" is a funny - if
you think that there's anything funny about pimping - pimp, a
from-up-yonder-in-the-holler-down-to-the-trailer-park yokel, of
course. But, nevertheless,  a stone-cold pimp with the real pimp
'tude, living off whoring out his own brother's *pregnant* girlfriend
literally for beer and cigarettes. According to him - and *I* have no
reason not to believe him - he charges the brother to ball his own
girlfriend. Apparently, no coercion is involved - she implies that she
truly enjoys getting down with random men. Again, I'm no profiler, but
I believe her, too.

On the show, "pimp out" is used, but, IMO, it should be "whore out." A
man whose *game* it is to live off a woman who *willingly* takes care
of him because she "loves" him is pimping her out.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
