    Default joke explanation

    Maybe its not an idiom or saying but it's bothering me for some time now .

    Anyway, there is pretty popular american joke:

    Why does snoop dog wear an umbrella ?
    -Fo' drizzle.

    Now, why that's supposed to be funny ? My best guess it has to do something with ebonics but still don't get it :( Any help ?
