Let's Celebrate with some Pimpin'

To celebrate my being finished with the reading for the week, here's some pimp Civ Pro as found in U.S. v. Pipkins("Sir Charles") & Moore, Jr.("Batman"), --- F.3d ----, 2004 WL 1717660, 17 Fla. L. Weekly Fed. C 900, 11th Cir.(Ga.), Aug 02, 2004.

Despite the pimps best efforts to subjugate their prostitutes, the rules allowed a prostitute to move from one pimp to another by "choosing." This was accomplished by the prostitute making her intentions known to the new pimp, and then presenting the new pimp with money, a practice known as "breaking bread." The new pimp would then "serve" the former pimp by notifying him that the prostitute had entered his fold.

Wondering where the rules are published? Why, that would be in Pimpin' Rules of Civil Procedure a/k/a Really Really Pimpin' in Da South.

The pimping subculture in Atlanta operated under a set of rules, presented in the video called Really Really Pimpin' in Da South. This videotape was made in Atlanta by Pipkins and Carlos Glover, a business associate. Really Really Pimpin' in Da South featured prominent Atlanta pimps, including Pipkins, explaining the rules of the game. This video, along with its companion piece, Pimps Up Hoes Down, outlined the pimp code of conduct, and was repeatedly shown to new pimps and prostitutes alike to concisely explain what was expected of a prostitute.


This has been printed as a public service to keep musclehead out of trouble in his new home.

Beanie, if only...I'm still at a loss as to proper pimpin' procedure. Discovery is very touch and go under Really Really Pimpin' in da South. Hopefully Snoop Dogg will rule pretty soon so we'll all know how much a pimp needs to surrender during pre-trial.

Thank you for the longest, hardest laugh I've had the whole year.

You are too cool for school.

I just can't stop laughing; this is great!
