    Yeah, a re-boot of the Klan, kind of like Star Wars, but the Emperor is the hero.

    I can see it now, this guy goes to a major Marketing firm asking how to improve their brand:

    "Hey, I'm a Wizard of the Klan, we need a new strategy to boost our Q ratings."

    "Okay, my first suggestion is that you all stop being racist dumbfuck skidmarks, that may help you."

    "That is impossible, being racist dumbfuck skidmarks is our 'raisin disco', so what else may you suggest?"

    "Sorry, I don't speak idiot-ese, what is a 'raisin disco'?

    "Well it's a phrase from the Frogs about why we're around."

    "Oh, raison d'etre, okay, I got you now. Have you considered that maybe most people think your reason for being sucks."

    "We know, but we don't care. Ignoring reality is a key component of being a racist skidmark. Or a Fox News viewer."

    "Well, the Venn Diagram of those two things is basically only one circle, but we'll save that for later."

    "Oh Venn, we love that guy, once we caught the show in Vegas. But I bet Teller drew the diagram as he is the one who built the hydrogen bomb. It's unfair of you not to mention him."

    "Yeah, that's my bad. To be honest, I think that you may be wasting your time, and much more importantly mine. Have a good day."

    "C'mon, there must be one suggestion that you have?"

    "Okay, when you want to have one of your little sheet parties, maybe give the fuckwads who show up a sheet fresh from the dryer, that way they will feel all warm and snuggly. Putting antifreeze in the kegs is a good idea too. It may taste bad, but keep on drinking it. Perhaps you can create some sort of corporate tie-in with the antifreeze company."

    Sorry, I'm not usually too light-hearted when it comes to the Klan, but this is so fucking ridiculous that snark is mandatory. Rebranding the Klan, Jeebus.

      I'm sorry about the Frogs comment, I can't edit it out. I meant no disrespect to the French or those of French descent. I offer anyone offended my sincere apology.

        I think you're correct - the people you're snarking on would use 'Frog'. Ghu knows they'd use derogatory names for every other group.

        (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)
