Timberlake Gets Advice from the Father of Our Country
(Justin Timberlake and George Washington are getting coffee at Starbucks.)
JT: I just don’t know man. Ever since I brought sexy back I’ve been blowing up with the teen crowd. But I want to focus on my film career. I want to be known as more than just the hottest, most talented member of N’Sync. More than just Britney Spears’ ex-boyfriend. I want to be the All-Around King of Entertainment. We’ve never had one of those before.
GW: You must be careful Justin. Too much power can be a dangerous thing. When the American people asked me to be their king, I knew that that was too high an honor.
JT: But why man? You could have been like the supreme ruler of everything.
GW: I was talented, I am not saying the honor wasn’t due to me. I was not only a strong military man but I was also an excellent farmer and I was, as I still am, quite a handsome man.
JT: So why didn’t you do it dude?
GW: Well, son, I didn’t think it was prudent to appear as powerful as God.
JT: But I brought sexy BACK! Do you know how long that shit has been gone? And I brought it back. That’s major man. I could definitely be the King of Entertainment. I could handle the power.
GW: Many men have said the same foolish thing.
(GW sits silently for a moment and thinks about what he has said while JT texts someone on his Sidekick. While they are still doing this, the KID comes in and walks up to their table. )
KID: Bust a rhyme for a dollar?
(GW looks confused.)
JT: A RHYME? A DOLLAR? Who do you think you are talking to my friend? I am Justin Timberlake, the KING of rhymes and dollars.
(JT gets up from his chair and gets in the KID’s face and starts to sing.)
JT: I’m bringing sexy back
Them other boys don’t know how to act
I think you’re special what’s behind your back
So turn around and I’ll pick up the slack.
Take ’em to the bridge
