Marion Barry Turns 77, Says He Looks Much Younger

Happy birthday to former mayor-for-life and current Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry, who turns 77 today.

"I look like I'm about 55 or 60. I don't look 77." Barry tells LL.

Asked what his plans are today, Barry says he's going to grab some freshly fallen snow, mix in some sugar and vanilla, and enjoy "snow ice cream."

    Shit, who lied to Marion Barry by saying he looks 55 or 60? Marion Barry looks like he has one foot in the grave and the Angel of Death is waiting outside his door. LOL

    Barry looks old and he can barely walk. He wabbles when he walks and soon he will need a cane or a walker.

    If you watch Mr. Barry walk, he looks all of his 77 years. Glad he's made it this far. He's led an interesting life.

    Back in his "heydey," had Barry said he was going to enjoy some "snow ice cream," it might have had a very different connotation.

    About 6 years ago one day at midnight in the middle of the week I happened to be in line at 7-11 behind Marion Barry. I was buying a pack of smokes as I had been studying for a law exam all night long. Mr. Barry had apparently been out partying all night and was not about to stop. His purchases? A gallon of orange juice, 2 packs of Newports, a bic lighter, and two cans of whip cream.
    so my consensus was that Barry still parties like a rockstar. 2 cans of whip cream? really? so he's either doing whip-its or putting whip cream on some chicks body... I shudder to think of who that might have been.
