Best Star Humbug

Columnist Steve Penn

Steve Penn's deadpan take on dated subjects and insignificant issues is hilarious, even though he's serious. In the past year, Penn has bemoaned the "new" hip-hop trend of sagging pants; labeled trees the city's "number one priority"; devoted a column to why black men need to eat their "veggies and fruits"; and, best of all, criticized contemporary black comedians while lauding time-warped pudding-pop-pusher Bill Cosby and my-pants-double-as-a-parachute relic Sinbad. Don't even get Penn started about Precious Doe. Even his photo, a straightfaced, "I'm watching you watch me" head shot, is worthy of a second glance.
