  • "Michael Jackson....Is a Puerto Rican!!!"

    9.6
    This is one of the reasons I watch the Wayans Bros. This episode is hilarious in a very ironic way, and is funny from beginning to end. It starts off with Dee showing the brothers that the new issue for the magazine "Drama Fo' Yo' Mama" is out, which includes ridiculous sob stories on life. Shawn and Marlon make fun of it like nobody's business, but Dee swears that the stories in the magazine are true. Shawn and Marlon write a fake story to "Drama Fo' Yo' Mama" which is ends up winning Dee's mother a chair, but they elaborated so much on an already false story that they need to work and rehearse a LOT when the magazine editors come to visit their house and confirm their story. In the scene where they act out as the family they depicted, it's HILARIOUS! Dee is dressed up so it looks like she weighs 400 pounds, Pops is crazy and shouts out random things ("Michael Jackson is a Puerto Rican!") and Marlon…Well you just have to see it. A classic, without a doubt in my mind.
