Tiger Funk

Back when we we're soliciting writers for the funk issue, I talked to Tayari Jones on her blog about Funk and she gave me some names and asked about who was and wasn't funky. I said that Tiger can be funky at times, despite himself. Well, Tiger was definitely funky at the US Open today.
Tiger had knee surgery recently, but it obviously hasn't kept him from handing out a beatdown. The only difference now is that he's got a harder pimpstroll than Goldie.

haha, i was just thinking about the other day how it used to be standard practice to "pimp stroll" back in the early nineties (at my school, at least).

Question: Has Obama proved his funkiness yet?

Pimpstrolling used to be the shnit!

Now that he's got the nomination, it seems like he's funkier than ever. Fist bumping with Michelle, Pimp slapping Lieberman on the Senate floor, measuring the Whitehouse lawn for a basketball court (damn the Lincoln bedroom, that hoop is the new main attraction). Obama seems to be able to turn it on and off. Michelle, on the other hand, is always so damn funky.
