The Boondocks: A Date With A Health Inspector

If you missed tonight's episode of Aaron McGruder’s The Boondocks you'll be sorry, but you can probably catch it on a repeat (it's on the Cartoon Channel).

I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but it included a couple of thugs one of which was described by voice-over as a drunken psychopath and he wears a large W on his chest. His partner is Rummi who is rather button-down in a suit and who wears a red, white and blue headband.

"W"drinks from a bottle labeled "Black Gold" while they look for a killer but instead of finding the real killer, Rummi and "W" decide to rob a convenience store owned by "Hussein".

The robbery is delayed until they can convince a cop that Hussein has a weapon, but Hussein protests, "I don't have a weapon! You're thinking of the Korean guy down the street!"

Rummi and "W" instigate a shock and awe experience in the store before Hussein and friends fight back and Rummi says with surprise, "Who could have known they'd shoot back at us?"

There's more, much more. It's hilarious. You have to see it for yourself.

Update: Here's a blog with screen shots of "W" and "Rummi".
