    My Gawd, that face! What a fucking mutant. No wonder he never got laid in high school.

    No wait...that's not the 'story' anymore.....

    My Gawd, that face! What a fucking heartbreaker. No wonder he banged every girl in summer camp.

    I have read some place that Howard was only at Roosevelt High for like one year. He makes it sounds like he spent three and a half years in Roosevelt during high school.

    The timeline is the neighborhood went black over night and wiggy spent one year, I thnk it was 8th grade. So he lived in Roosevelt when it was white for about 13 years, then lived there for 1 year when it was black, then moved to a white neighborhood. Would you consider that growing up in a black neighborhood? Everyone at HSS has to protect all these lies at all costs. When they are found out they go to the old " That's a character I play on the radio" excuse. But they all relize that it's not lying if you are making marbles.

    According to his Wikipedia page. he moved to Roosevelt in 1955. He moved to Rockville Center in 1969 and graduated from high school in 1972. So the timeline fits. And he only spent his freshman year in Roosevelt.
