In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, some folks advise others to stay at home politely. Others do so a bit more firmly. Then there’s Samuel Jackson, who has an entire, expletive-filled poem dedicated to telling us to “stay the f**k at home”.
In a video chat with Jimmy Kimmel, who is under quarantine, the actor said that he got a call from Adam Mansbach, the author of Go The F**k To Sleep. “He wrote a new poem, I read it, and we want to present it to the public right now,” Jackson said.
That poem is titled “Stay The F**k At Home”, and it’s filled with great advice and the liberal use of “f**k”. “Stay the f**k at home.” reads Jackson. “Corona is spreading, this shit is no joke. It’s no time to work or roam.”
Later lines include, “Motherf**ker it’s no time to gamble”, “Just stay the f**k at home as if your name was Trenton Quarantino”, and “But unless you just ran out of groceries, please, stay the f**k at home.”
As the situation outside escalates, Jackson’s poem provides some much-needed levity (while simultaneously offering better advice than stuff like talking like Doraemon). At the end of the video, he adds, “Everybody, be safe.”
On a related note, our own Mr Toffee did say the same thing on previous KKP Wrapsody episodes.
