The Last Laugh is a special feature on loldarian.com by one of my favorite journalists and biggest supporters Mr. Ryan Lee. Ryan is a senior reporter for Southern Voice and a contributor to David Atlanta Magazine. I'd planned on writing about this subject this week but Ryan said everything I wanted to say and more.

The Last Laugh
by Ryan Lee

A FORTUNATE TWIST of my childhood was my family getting cable TV shortly after I discovered masturbation.

One of my favorite networks was a channel we didn’t even subscribe to. I sometimes still worry about suffering permanent eye damage from all of the hours I spent “watching” the scrambled Spice Channel, the picture distorted by rolling horizontal lines that blurred into a rainbow.

Of course, I tried to squint between the rainbow lines, but the real stimulation came from setting the volume low, placing my ear against the TV and listening to the wooden dialogue and wailing moans of pay-per-view porn.

I also used to become more familiar with myself while watching the “Emmanuel” soft-core movies on Showtime, and the early installments of “Real Sex” and “Hookers at the Point.” But the definitive peepshow during my puberty years was “Dream On,” an HBO series that started in 1990.

My favorite character was Eddie Charles, who became one of my first TV crushes by appearing naked almost every week while being a manwhore. Eddie was played by Dorien Wilson, an actor who went on to appear in “The Steve Harvey Show” and “Sister, Sister,” and star as Professor Obie in “The Parkers.”

Imagine spending your entire life making other people laugh, only to have your life become the punch line in another comedian’s joke.

I recently Googled “Professor Obie” and found this one-line description on WikiAnswers: “Dorien Wilson, a closeted homosexual according to comedian Katt Williams.”

KATT WILLIAMS IS A COMIC genius who brazenly outs Wilson while talking about gay people he’s seen at “mansion parties” in Hollywood.

“Is that two n----- kissing?” Williams says in his 2006 HBO special “Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1.” “Is one of them n------ Professor Obie?”

How is Katt Williams a "comic genius". He uses the "n" word so much it's distracting.

I am all for "outing" homophobic public figures, especially preachers and politicians. But Obie is neither a preacher or politician.

Obie is a public figure because he's a fairly well known actor but I am not aware that he's said or done anything homophobic.

Think about this. What was Katt's point in outing Obie other than to laugh with the audience at the idea of "two niggers" kissing?
It was Katt's way of telling a "fag" joke.

Ask yourself how homophobic is Katt Williams? Why are you promoting a man who uses the "n" word the way he does.

It is so sad to see in this day in time that a Black Comedian,Katt Williams could stoop so low to get a laugh. Never the less, this comic did not give any consideration to how his downgrading comments would effected Obie's family or children, all fora laugh. I'm wondering who died and made Katt Williams king. At what point did, do we say enought with destroying others at the expenise of a laugh.Your not that funny, and more than likely, Williams you have something to prove or hide!
