Mean to Paula Dean

Mean to Paula Dean

Why should we be mean to Paula Dean
To us in America is the cooking queen,
Who used a word which was a no no
I had heard from Sunny Bono and Ono.

Just because it happened to be her,
To your big brain did it ever occur
She had been referring to a Brazil nut
Found in South America often in a hut.

So instead we need to go to Nigeria;
While there did catch a case of diphtheria,
But still that certain word will not use
Or I'll be accused of English abuse.

Colloquial, word has been called by some;
This is what you say when you are dumb;
I have never been known as a perfect saint;
Worst word I ever used was one called ain't.

    One expects more from public figures making millions on pushing deadly recipes. And throwing parties to give the feeling that it's o k to enjoy those good old days of whites being masters over blacks.This woman is Rich enough to live in her fantasy of the old South, but I don't have to like it God love she really is A Southern Bell..And sees nothing wrong with that.
