A Very Happy Belated 51st Birthday To Darryl Dawkins

And as such, for the 2nd year in a row, we link to No Mas’ 2007 interview with Chocolate Thunder himself.

NM: Where is Lovetron exactly?

DD: Lovetron is a planet that is one million billion light years away. I go there in my mind to, you know, get away from the day-to-day.

NM: Anyone else we might have heard of who’s been to Lovetron?

D: Oh yeah. World B. Free. Artis Gilmore. And lots of beautiful women. That was my whole thing, taking the ladies out there. That’s why, when I go there, I travel in an invisible transporter, so everybody can see all the fine women I travel with. I like to show them off, you know. Back in the day, Lola Folana was often to be seen in my spaceship.

NM: Have you ever been to Krypton?

DD: I’ve flown over it a couple times. I gotta say, I’ve never really been able to understand that whole scene. Superman, people from Krypton, they all get destroyed by Kryptonite! I mean, that doesn’t make any sense. See, I’m Chocolate Thunder, but I don’t get destroyed by chocolate. I like chocolate.

NM: Can anything destroy Chocolate Thunder?

DD: White lightning. In very large quantities.

    Gotta love quotes from Chocolate Thunder. He broke more glass in his heyday than my BB gun did in mine.
