Prince, suddenly Twittermaster of the universe, has the blogosphere howling with his use of this image from an old Dave Chappelle skit to link to a few dozen seconds of  his new single with 3rdEyeGirl,  "Breakfast Can Wait." 

Listen here:

In the skit, Chappelle as Prince challenges fellow cast member Charlie Murphy to a game of b-ball and utters lines like  "Why don't you purify yourself in the waters of Lake einnetonka?" and "Game: Blouses."

Watch the video here:

 We can only hope that Chappelle, who is headlining Funny or Die's Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Tour starting next week but not currently scheduled to stop in MInneapolis, can be lured here for a game of hoops, or at least a fashion walk-off, with the real Prince.
