Garfield [Almost] Weighs in on the Lil Wayne Lasagnagate
The Hairpin: Garfield, as a lasagna fan, have you heard about “Lasagnagate”?
H: Lil Wayne has a lyric in his new song 6’7″ that goes “Real Gs move in silence like lasagna,” meaning real Gs are silent like how the G in lasagna is silent — except is the G in lasagna silent? It’s pronounced with the N. Does that make it a stupid line? Or is it still clever?
G: YOU’re stupid.
H: No I’m not!
G: Yes you are, leave me alone.
H: Garfield, please talk to me.
H: I’ll give you $45.
G: Now or later?
H: … Later. But like literally as soon as we finish talking.
G: Orrr just give it to me now.
H: OK, I can’t actually give it to you now, but —
G: No. [Walks to his bed.]
H: [Following] Garfield, Questlove of The Roots doesn’t seem to like the line. Do you like Questlove?
G: I said leave me alone.
H: Garfield, you’re not even doing anything!
G: I don’t have to talk to you if I don’t want.
H: Garfield! I used to read you every day for like 10 years!
H: [Too loudly] YOU’RE WELCOME!
H: Sorry, I guess … ughhhhh I don’t even know. Anyway, this is the song. You probably won’t even like it.
