Pineapple…Punkie Johnson[Starts with Michael Che in his set]
Michael Che: Paul Pierce was fired from his job as an analyst or ESPN after filming a wild party on Instagram live where he was surrounded by strippers. Here with more on that story is one of the strippers, Pineapple.[Pineapple slides in]
Pineapple: Yeah. Hey! What’s going on? Hey, boo. I would prefer my full name Pineapple Penelope Peters, please.
Michael Che: Okay, Pineapple Penelope Peters. So, tell us what happened?
Pineapple: Okay, well, Big Che Mike, that is your name, right? Big Che Mike.
Michael Che: Sure.
Pineapple: Well, I want to know why Paul Pierce got fired for throwing one of the biggest parties of the year. Is it against ESPN policy to love big asses?
Michael Che: I mean, they’re owned by Disney. So, yeah, it kind of is.
Pineapple: Listen, everybody. Paul Pierce is a saint. He gave us, strippers, jobs during a very tough time. Ain’t nobody looking out for us, exotic dances in this pandemic. I haven’t danced at the Golden Cobra in months. I even did a few Zoom, but they didn’t work. You know how hard it is to clap your ass in front the camera while somebody yell, “Ay, you muted!”
Michael Che: I’m sorry to hear that. But didn’t you have a point about Paul Pierce.
Pineapple: Oh, yes. $Michael Che0.
Michael Che: Seriously?
Pineapple: Can a fish walk? Get me my money.
Michael Che: Alright. Luckily, I keep stripper money here. [gives $Michael Che0 to Pineapple] Here you go.
Pineapple: Thank you. Okay, now. I just want to tell everybody three reasons why Paul Pierce should not have been fired. Can I have the desk?
Michael Che: Of course. Please.
Pineapple: Thank you.[music stars playing. Pineapple puts her leg up on the desk and starts shaking her butt.]
Michael Che: Hey! Hey! What are you doing? We’re on TV.
Pineapple: But you said I could have the desk.
Michael Che: I mean just to talk to the people.
Pineapple: Oh, I’m sorry. Stripper brain. Okay. Reason number one. He got us all 4-for-4s from Wendy’s and you know I love my frosty. I put my little fries. You know. Reason number two, we didn’t have to pick up our money off the floor. He had a maid come in and sweep it up off the floor for us and put it in garbage bags. You know, classy. Reason number three, not only did he give us unlimited tequila shots, but he gave us all vaccine shots as well boo. I got the one and done.
Michael Che: Ah! You got the Johnson&Johnson?
Pineapple: No. I got that Jackson and Jackson. See, Tido and Lataya, they got their own line of vaccines going on.
Michael Che: That is not a vaccine, Pineapple.
Pineapple: [looking at Michael Che] Oh, wait a minute. Boy, you look familiar.
Michael Che: What do you mean?
Pineapple: Don’t act like you don’t know. I’ve been to your apartment before. I did that pole split on your cow-printed rug. I was the one saying, “Mooo!”
Michael Che: No. Pineapple, everybody.
