Glass of OJ Simpson
…now we’re talking. Earl takes his happy morning and starts to nudge it in his usual direction
OJ = Orange Juice
The addition of “Simpson” to “OJ” shocks us out of the politeness of the verse’s intro and gives us some foreshadowing of the future. OJ Simpson is a former NFL player who was famously acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife
The above-pictured Juice is no longer on the loose, having been incarcerated for armed robbery in 2008.
This line preludes what’s about to happen to Earl: get away with murder, but get arrested for a lesser crime.
O.J Simpson was also nicknamed “The Juice” during his NFL career. This is also why Earl uses “OJ Simpson” instead of “Orange Juice.”
