AUSTIN, Texas (CBS Houston/AP) — A Green Bay Packers running back has taken up a second job as a DJ, sometimes performing at a strip club, while on injured reserve.
According to Deadspin, Cedric Benson, who goes by DJ World Peace, performed at Austin strip club Yellow Rose earlier this month.
“Everything is clear to me! The world is full of energy! I’m making my way to be apart (sic) of history! So let’s all get together and dance the night away!!” Benson wrote on his Facebookpage.
Hey what's the old saying folks? You miss 100% of shots you don't take. Well I don't think that applies more to a situation than this one. I mean how are we supposed to know that DJ-ing at a strip club isn't adequate rehab for a Lisfranc injury if no one tries it right? Hell Benson is like a pioneer. Lewis and Clark style. Except instead of risking life and limb on a perilous journey to discover half of America, Benson is spinning Get Low* while a bunch of lonely guys get a couple of seconds of motorboat serenity before picking glitter off of their face and returning to the daily grind. Slight differences if you're a 'details' guy. Plus you can't argue with that post on his Facebook wall. Nothing will make things clear to you faster than dim lighting, Lil' Jon and half naked women! At least that's what I've heard.
*I was in college when this song came out and have heard it approx. 23234543 times. 23234540 of those were in a dirty basement with a plastic cup of Natty Ice. Actually that and Usher's Yeah! were the only songs I listened to from 2002-2004. Couldn't argue with the results though, chicks flat out went CRAZY when those songs went on. To the point where I almost went over and talked to one. Almost**.
**Typical night for 19 year old college bro's at a house party
Bro #1: Man there's so many hot chicks here!
Bro #2: For sure bro! Man I can't wait to take someone back to the dorms!
Bro #1: Haha, (Lil' Jon Chappelle voice ) YEEAAAAAHHHHH
Bro #2: Hey let's get some beers first, little liquid courage am I right?!
Bro #1: Right on man, get a couple of brews and maybe some shots of Pucker!
(4 hours of awkward semi circle bro dancing passes)
Bro #2: Wanna just go back to the dorms and order Topper's?
Bro #1: Yeah those chicks were ugly anyway.
PS: Another plus for Cedric is that stripper's give great life advice. Like kinky therapists.
