It’s a tragic day in Paisley Park, but perhaps this will help you laugh-cry some of the pain away. Remember Charlie Murphy’s story about the time he and his brother Eddie Murphy got schooled in a game of basketball by Prince and the Revolution? Of course you do: Prince and his crew didn’t even bother to change, and afterward, Prince served the losers some pancakes. This great celebrity anecdote became memorialized on Chappelle’s Show with Dave Chappelle as the inimitable artist himself. Of course, Prince himself got in on the joke when he made a photo of Chappelle-as-Prince the cover of his single, “Breakfast Can Wait.”
It’s time for some pancakes everyone.
