ICYMI: Samuel L. Jackson Performing A Slam Poem About “Boy Meets World”

April 2, 2014 / Posted by:

Because nothing precious from your youth is considered sacred anymore (I myself keep a crisis hotline on speed-dial in the event a Step by Step re-boot is announced) Laurence Fishburne Samuel L. Jackson stopped by The Tonight Show last night to perform a spoken word poem about the 90s TV show Boy Meets World. Generally, nothing gives me the art chills as intensely as the words ‘slam poem’, but I didn’t hate this. I think It’s because I truly believed Samuel L. Jackson was feeling it, man. Then again, I think it’s scientifically impossible not to get filled with emotion when speaking about national treasure Mr. Feeny (I believe the proper name is TGIF’s Theorem of The Feels)

Except he missed one thing: MINKUS!! You can’t talk about Boy Meets World without addressing the most important nerd character of the TGIF lineup next to Steve Urkel. Or maybe there’s just too much to say about Stuart Minkus, and casually throwing his name in between Topanga and Eric Matthews wouldn’t be giving him the respect he deserves. Same goes for the character of Jack Hunter. Forget one slam poem on The Tonight Show; Matthew Lawrence’s beautiful 90s boy bander hair deserves an anthology of poems.
