    If I had a nickel for every dumb blonde joke I'm supposed to be offended by, I'd be rich. I wonder if any of these folks who were outraged by this have ever watched Dave Chappelle or Key and Peele. Biting satire and funny to boot.

    There's a place for outrage, and it most likely isn't within the confines of a comedy show. Try being outraged at real-life issues, like poverty and environmental decay.

      Nothing offends me or, at least, very little does. Humor is either funny or it is not -- the only criteria I go by. I admit I'm fucked up and think there is humor to be found in everything. I may not always voice that I find something funny but it doesn't change the fact that I just might.

      The Lone Apple tends to be a decent if snarky fellow. Some of my other personae (none on this site...just saying) have zero filter. It's an outlet.

      And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home with needles, needles and pins.
