This character in Spike Lee's hit movie, Do The Right Thing was about the funniest thing I had seen in a long time back in the late 1989. With his pals ML and Coconut Sid, Willy spends his days sitting in a lawn chair on a sidewalk in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Together, they drink beer and talk trash about each other and everyone that walks by.
Sweet Dick Willy was played by the late stand-up comic, Robin Harris, who also appeared in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka. Unfortunately for afficianados of his style of vulgar humor, he had a massive heart attack and died in 1990.
Here are some notable Sweet Dick Willy quotes:
"Never too hot, never too cold for
fucking. Why, I had my best piece of woman on a humid day."
"Fool, you're thirty cents away from
a quarter. How you gonna get a boat?"
"You're raggedy as a roach. You eat
the holes out of donuts."
"I bet I see her naked come payday."
"ML, hold this for me." (while urinating)
