Samuel L. Jackson Has a New Message for Kids: Stay the F**k At Home

The famously foul-mouthed actor read a new poem by the author of 'Go the F--- to Sleep' on last night's Kimmel.

Last night, a quarantined Jimmy Kimmel interviewed a (separately) quarantined Samuel L. Jackson via satellite. The two spent the first part of the interview catching up the same way you and your friends do at the beginning of your Zoom calls.

Then, we get to the raison d’etre of this interview: the premiere reading of a sequel to Go the F— to Sleep, a coronavirus quarantine-themed poem entitled Stay the F— at Home.

Written by Adam Mansbach, the same dude who wrote the original children’s book, which went viral (no pun intended) after it was infamously read by Jackson, Stay the F— at Home actually has some pretty useful advice not just for kids but for everyone.

“The ‘rona is spreading. This s— is no joke. It’s no time to work or roam,” it begins. “The way you can fight it is simple, my friends. Just stay the f— at home.”

Jackson goes on to point out that he’s not a doctor, but he’s still Sam f—‘in Jackson, which means motherf—ers listen when he reads a poem. After urging folks to wash their hands and, again stay the f— at home, he reads a stanza built around a pun.

“MF it’s no time to gamble, look around you’re not at a casino. Just stay at home as if your name was Quentin Quarnatino.”

Jackson has, of course, appeared in several Tarantino films, cursing about a billion times overall, so it’s appropriate that he makes it into this vulgar work.

The poem ends with a thank you and a call back to Jackson and Mansbach’s original collaboration.

“Thank you for doing your part to flatten the curve, because that shit is steep. And now that you’re home, please feel free to go the f— to sleep.”
