Lip Plates

There is nothing wrong with it, I mean it's not harming me and it doesn't bother them, but this is just my personal feelings on Lip plates. I might be African American, but at times, I'm just too American and not enough African. =)

Also, no disrespect to any Africans or people with Lip Plates, just opinion and feelings.

AS an African America, I held pride towards
my ancestral Continent of Africa, though
this specific bit of my ancestors culture has
always freaked me out, by just it bit.

It's supposed to symbolize hub caps and rap CD's.

as the son of a woman who grew up with people who did this I had the chance to ask one "Have you ever thought of using it to hold you soup bowl?"

If I had a lip Plate, I would use it to attack people who try to debate with me. They would never expect me to just suddenly swing my head and smack them with the plate in my lip.

"no disrespect to any Africans or people with Lip Plates"

I can't imagine there are too many Africans with lip plates browsing FJ, OP, but your kindness is acknowledged

Bro you gotta think of the utility!

Imagine you were trying to play a game with a serious ******* hard boss,
but you start to get hungry. You could pause the game, and drop a couple of cheetos or cereal on your lip-bowl and use it to supply you a constant amount of food
while playing like a champ!

And guess what? You could eat a bowl of nachos off your lip without getting your controller/mouse/keyboard greasy.

Hell, you could even use your lip bowl like a mouse pad if you can't find a rigid enough surface.

But wait, there's more! If you want to come over a friend's house and wanna bring your games, you could use your lip bowl like a case for your games, and wrap some tape around it so that the discs stay in place.

THIS IS EVOLUTION PEOPLE, **** YEAH!

I think that those lip plates are retarded as hell. Just like those metal thingies that some put on the neck to make it look like their necks are giraffe kinda long.
User avatar #5 to #3 - supersonicman (11/15/2013) [-]
I think it's an odd practice too though it comes from an old African tradition as a sign of wealth and status. At the moment, it seems like a dumb thing though like scarification or that weird giraffe ring thing, there was a reason that is unique to them. What I do hate is when people who have no reason other then too look crazy or 'cool' get them (Like someone who just wants a bunch of piercings) It just looks off to me.
