Eat Rotten Fruit from a Shitty Tree

Ultimate Peep Show, 2007

Come on. I'm already so sick of what white people It would be a different story if it were even remotely funny but it's just like that Simpsons, or that King of the Hill, or that Chappelle show, or whatever. "It's funny 'cause it's true!" Haven't we evolved enough to where race jokes aren't the only thing that's funny anymore? Can't we transcend this level of, why yes in fact, British people DO have bad teeth, white people CAN'T dance, black people DO like cornbread, etc. etc. I mean inherently racist humor has it's proper place in understanding radical change and the evolution of society, but this kind of inherently racist humor isn't even that funny and that's the most offensive aspect about it. And everyone knows I love a funny joke, no matter how terrible it may be, off the cuff, offensive, in fact, the more the better (cheap shots excluded). Good humor is allowed to be offensive if it's supposed to make people think, as in just simply use their brain. What white people like is just another knee jerk response to Seinfeld being off the air. It's about as funny as "what's with airplanes and peanuts!" Come on, Jerry wasn't funny either. It's really no wonder you have to scratch your head sideways when watching something great like Tim and Eric's Awesome Show Great Job! or Mr Show. To actually be groundbreaking, I think you have to push limits of what makes people uncomfortable and is, ultimately, funny. Or at least have some intelligence about it. I'm just so sick of lame-brain easy humor. It's easy to laugh at a blog like what makes white people even if you haven't had a hard day because those kind of laughs are cheap. But not in a good tawdy way. Just in a bad, slacker way. And that's just not good enough for me.
