  1. Similarly; decades after hearing Eddie Murphy in Raw, I was floored to find out baba ghanoush is an actual food. That it was not just a funny name he made up for the stage.

  2. The article linked doesn’t actually say that anywhere, it just says that it’s in his catchphrase. I’m not saying he didn’t, just that the link provided doesn’t include that info.

  3. it’s in the lyrics of an older popular song, I always got a kick out of hearing it. Groove is in the heart.

    The chills that you spill up my back keep me filled

    With satisfaction when we’re done

    Satisfaction of what’s to come

    I couldn’t ask for another

    No, I couldn’t ask for another (you know that’s right)

    Your groove, I do deeply dig

    No walls, only the bridge

    My supper dish, my succotash wish (sing it, baby)
