Dave Chappelle is talking

It seems something new breaks everyday about the Dave Chappelle meltdown. Friday the LA Times ran a story that said Chappelle quit his Comedy Central show and then went into hiding in South Africa, which makes a lot more sense than the original reports that the network put the show on hiatus and then Dave went nuts, even checking into a mental-health facility. Now, in an article due to hit newsstands tomorrow, Time Magazine is reporting that Dave is not in an institution at all, but staying with a friend in an attempt to find a quiet place. “Let me tell you the things I can do here which I can’t at home: think, eat, sleep, laugh,” said Chapelle. “I’m an introspective dude. I enjoy my own thoughts sometimes. And I’ve been doing a lot of thinking here.” Keep in mind that Dave lives on a farm in Ohio, so things must be bad if being a black guy in South Africa is more relaxing than rolling around on your piles of money in Ohio with only sheep and ducks to judge you. And before anyone in South Africa gets upset at my awesome level of nationalism, hey man, that’s just how I bring it.
