Emails? What emails?

{ABE}Faith's source, BTW, and she's pointed out the misattribution.

Please suspend me. I can't stand this place. You're all insane.

Now that was funny.

It could be arranged.

Wow, that was really tasteless.

Quick point
I don't know if the jokes are legit or not, I haven't done the research. But I just wanted to point out that none of those guys write ANY jokes at all, they don't even sit in the monologue writers meeting. They have head writters that make the decision of which jokes will end up on the prompter. Also, the jokes for the late shows usually (not always) come through e-mails from about 1000 comics throughout the nation (both conservative and liberal). It used to be by fax but as the list grew it changed to e-mail.

So jokes like those can and do slip through, even though some of those guys aren't pro-right - except for Leno, who is pro-right btw. In fact, I rememeber one night both Kimmel and Wanda Sykes (who was a guest on Letterman that night) did the exact same joke, verbatum. She has paid writers too.

So, while I have no clue for the source of Faith's jokes, it is quite possible for them to have said it since monologue jokes can come from any where.

Such things are highly subjective. One good thing that can be said about you, CS, is that, although you describe yourself by your religion, you certainly couldn't normally be accused of being sanctimonious. Please keep it that way.

If someone arrives (or returns to) a discussion board, and can be abrasive, and calls people names, then I would describe that person as one of the group in which I'd include myself (and you) who is bound to get into the occasional "brawl", and should be able to take some flak in return. We don't need protection.

This is the year 2010, not 1810, and there are still people around who believe that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. When such a person describes others as insane, then, IMO, there's certainly no need to pull punches. Such people are delusional, without question, so I'm happy to teach them what insanity really is, and to do so on their own level of politeness.

An Epistemological Nightmare
I don't care what you claim. YOu think like a leftie. Most lefties today don't know they are lefties.

Indeed, since we've established that you can have political opinions that you are unaware of, you might be a "leftie" yourself. Or a Nazi. Or a communist. Or an anarcho-syndicalist.

One thing puzzles me. Since mere introspection can't tell you what your political opinions are --- is there any method of finding out which way you lean?

I also wonder if this applies equally to religion. You think that you're a Christian, but perhaps you're a Zoroastrian without knowing it. I mean, how would you know what your opinions are?

Or alternatively - The moral of the story is that people in glass houses should masturbate in the basement.

For their sake and everyone elses.

Sh*t my dad says
"Sh*t my dad says" which is a funny, funny book, has a Twitter.

I'm not saying to follow it, lets not be assholes, but you can read some of the posts. They're hilarious. It truly is shit that comes out of the mouth of a 74 year old dude.

Sh*t my dad says

I'll quote some:

quote:
"Don't ask for my opinion then. I said congrats on the car, just saying nobody's panties are getting wet from a fucking Honda Accord."

"A parent's only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed."

"Universe is 14 billion years old. Seems silly to celebrate one year. Be like having a fucking parade every time i take a piss."

"No. Tell 'em we're not doing Christmas dinner at a casino... Don't be an ass about it, but tell them why it's a fucking stupid idea."


- Oni

Surely you mean the moral of the story is "a cock in the hand is worth two in the bush"?

Going to close this version down
Too much bickering and not enough humor (or humour). Or something like that.

Someone can start a fresh topic called Humor V.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Message 150
