Shoot me out the cannon

from Das Racist – Chicken and Meat Lyrics on Rap Genius


A reference to the Human Cannonball stunt.

The first human cannonball, in 1877 at the Royal Aquarium in London, was a 14 year-old girl called “Zazel”, whose real name was Rossa Matilda Richter. She was launched by a spring-style cannon invented by Canadian William Leonard Hunt (“The Great Farini”). She later toured with the P.T. Barnum Circus.
