Snoop says: How my hair look?

March 4, 2008 |  6:54 am

Spoiler Alert for any fools who didn't set aside Sunday night for "The Wire" and have yet to watch the next-to-last episode. Stop reading now. 142856__snoop_lWhen Felicia "Snoop" Pearson uttered her last incoherent jumble of words on "TheInspiring_snooppearson2 Wire" on Sunday, it was perhaps the most poignant send-off ever. A woman who was never seen wearing a swath of lip gloss or a high heel or even a tee shirt that wasn't tent-sized smoothed her braids and said:
"How my hair look, Mike?"
A moment later, Snoop was dead from a shot to the back of the head. But not before her executor Mike responded, "You look good, girl."

Could any exchange have been more tender and right on? Check out Pearson on the right, looking decidedly more approachable off-screen. Snoop in pink? Love it.
