Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus found after 10 years and Charles Ramsey gives the interview of 2013

by Jon Henseler


First of all let me just say that this Amanda Berry/Gina DeJesus story is flat out bananas. 10 years kidnapped and finally freed. Can't imagine what they or their families are feeling today. Absolutely unreal. You can only hope they get to live as normal of a life as they can after what they went through.

There. Now that we did that little 'I have a heart' smokescreen, let's get on to the guy that everyone is talking about this morning, Charles Ramsey/Spanish from Old School in 40 years. Absolute FIRE interview! Not only did this guy help rescue these girls, he also single handedly launched his own internet fame. From the fact that he 'ate ribs and listened to salsa music' with the kidnapper, to the look on his face when the police sirens hit at 1:07 to 'bro I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man's arm,' to 'either she's homeless or she's got problems' it was all gold Jerry, gold! So Charles Ramsey you've not only become an actual hero, you've joined the likes of Antoine 'Hide yo kids hide yo wife' Dodson and Sweet 'Ain't nobody got time for that' Brown. Use your 15 minutes wisely Charles, if you're smart this could turn into literally hundreds of internet dollars.

PS: It's interviews like this that make me sad that the Chappelle Show is no longer on the air. Just a missed opportunity for comedy. Like when you're listening to a Brewer game on the radio and a home run is hit but it's not in Ueck's inning. You're still happy but you know you're missing something better.
