Let me get this straight: Rapper 50 Cent doesn't know what a grapefruit is? That's what comedian Aziz Ansari says. In his hysterical comedy special, Dangerously Delicious, Aziz tells about the time he overheard 50 Cent order grapefruit soda at a restaurant.
Now let's stop here for a moment to clear something up: YES, grapefruit soda is a thing. It's delicious. Grapefruit was trending like crazy last year and now we have ourselves some tasty pink sodas and even Perrier is in on that action. Now let's get to the part where Aziz's story gets really weird.
Lolz, "Why isn't this purple?" Okay, now here's what I think really happened. 50 Cent misread the menu and thought he was ordering grape soda. Who doesn't love grape soda? It's so purple. And then it comes out all pink instead and he realizes he's about to drink something that looks incredibly girly. So he gets into it with the waiter.
Aziz is evesdropping because it's 50 Cent and he needs to hear every word he says. Aziz catches "Why isn't this purple" and then the restaurant gets noisy and he can't hear the rest of the conversation very clearly. The rest is shiny, gold comic made-up bullshit.
Because, come on. 50 Cent knows what a grapefruit is, right? HE HAS TO! How do you go through life in America without ever learning about them? So what I'm wondering now is, what is 50 Cent going to do to Aziz the next time they find each other in the same room? I think Aziz is going to run.
Are there any common foods you didn't learn about until you were an adult?
