Some might bash me, but I honestly wish there were more "madeas" around. The community is sorely missing them and some don't even apprehend it. Perry's Madea is one of the funniest, most enjoining, in your face characters I have had the "shake my head" of witnessing since navigating around a select few of the commanding "Sunday morning go to meeting" elders of my Georgia Baptist childhood who have mostly moved on up a little higher. Y'all know the ones. With the hungry hawk eyes; ears that could tell you when a tree fell in Timbuktu; vocal cords strong as Patti LaBelle's; and the long, skinny, stinging switches that they wielded expertly enough to battle Zorro. The ones who would embarass you in public places when you forgot one of the "to do or not to do rules." The sames ones that would send a little "bad behind young-un" running for dear life, shouting after him to come back, if he dared, and bring his ma (or worse). If you had Madea living next door, you might call her a bane. But, she might just be the best remedy there is for down in the dumps, for more respect, and for more caring. And Tyler "ain't" bad! Isn't he the cutest thing? Madea might just try to "drop it like it's hot!"
(For the English buffs, it was not a mistake. I meant to use it. If this doesn't make sense to you, it wasn't meant for you and just have a nice day!)
