That is the perfect picture for the article.

It just looks like a guy named "Triple J" apologizing for joking about the holocaust.

Frankly the holocaust was just the initial push for green energy and after only a few years the Nazis realized the Jews, gypsies, and gays were not a good source of renewable energy as originally believed. But all in the name of progress, amirite?

What was Adolf's favorite song? "If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked a Kike!"

That horrible joke was told to me, by my uncle, in the 60's .

/ Wasn't funny then either.

They were trying to make jokes about Hitler and wind farms...

How could that not end in a holocaust reference?

I believe the Amirites were holocausted by the Jews 3000 years ago. Therefore, you cannot be an Amirite.

Screw the Holocaust joke I'm greatly offended he tried to compare himself with Monty Python, John Cleese, Mel Brooks or Charlie Chaplin.

In a reference to cremations in World War II concentration camps, Ballard suggested fan-forced ovens.

Wind farms REALLY do not work that way.

KingKauff: What's the difference between a pizza and a Jew?


Pizzas don't scream when you put them in the oven.

A Jewish friend of mine told me that one when he thought I was Jewish (my dad is a Jew, so we have a Jewish last name). When he found out I wasn't Jewish he apologized!

I told him, "No need to apologize, but let's be honest. Pizzas don't get stripped of all their valuables before they go in AND Jews never went in all dressed."

His response : "I can tell you're half Jew" and he clapped me on the back.

/the best jokes are the ones that make you wince before you laugh, and then make you wonder if you should have laughed at all
//Dad married a Roma and got disowned by his family

Is the punchline that people actually like pizza? Because that's offensive.

I see a publicity stunt, perpetrated by a trainee A/W who probably calls it 'hype' as 'publicity' has too many letters.

2012-08-10 04:21:08 PM

sure haven't: I'll never understand why people on this website think it's no biggie to make light of the holocaust.

F*cking morons.

//I started lurking almost a decade ago so f*ck off


Well, after nearly 70 years, and with the majority of the people who lived through it now dead, we're reaching the point where the Holocaust is now something akin to the Civil War, or Slavery... yes, it was this big, bad, dark thing, but there's really no one left connecting us emotionally to the event. It's just facts in a history book and we hopefully won't repeat it.

And would you take offense to a joke about the war of Northern Aggression?

I like to replace the intro with "Pat Buchanan isn't all that bad. He lost family in Auschwitz."

I think Civil War and Slavery remain in the "too soon" category indefinitely, because anyone who is black or white and lives in a U.S. state that existed then knows what role they personally would play if those things happened today.
 
2012-08-10 08:35:55 PM
Yawn.

Personally, I believe everyone should stop clinging to the past as a means of self-identification. Yes, maybe your grandfather was a slave, or died at Auschwitz, or whatever. These were horrible things that I, too hope are never repeated.

The thing is - and this is REALLY important - it didn't happen to you. All wearing it publicly does is make you out to be a stifling douche.

Get over it - your grandfather has...

/amidoingitright?

Really, what about states that want the right to legalize things like marijuana and gay marraige? State rights can be a good thing. Maybe if a state could do things like that it would work out better.

Let the federal government worry about things like military, interstate crime, industry regulation, healthcare (sorry states), foreign relations, space program, immigration, ; and let the states worry about whether to teach their kids science, who can get married, varying levels of gun control, etc.

That way at least somewhere is going to have laws you like and be full of like-minded people. In other words: If the idiots all gather in one or two places they will be easier to ignore.

Marshal805: Anybody who calls themselves "Triple J" is a Summer's Eve douche.


The RADIO STATION is called TripleJ. Also, not as big a Jewish population (and therefore less of a cultural influence) in Australia as in America, so it's unlikely he would have thought that much about it at the time - it really doesn't have that much of a care factor over here, and the only reason it gets traction is that the commercial radio stations/TV/newspapers love to take any opportunity to attack the government-paid-for ad-free ABC network (of which TripleJ is part of). Truth is, far more offensive stuff is said regularly and without comment on many commercial radio stations every day - stuff that denigrates anyone who isn't male, white & christian, some of it in "jest" some of it far more seriously.

The ABC is generally better than this: TripleJ's breakfast hosts are usually selected from comedians known to be a bit "edgy"... if they do go over to commercial after their stint on the J's they have to tone things back a bit. You can swear on the J's, for instance.

It wasn't a very funny joke, but you have to be very careful about saying something is "off limits" for comedy. Sometimes you just have to accept that in a free society, some people are occasionally going to make dead baby jokes even if you find them personally offensive.

That much is true. He wishes he was that good; he's a long way off.
 
2012-08-10 11:35:00 PM
Did a representative issue the apology statement for him? Or did he do it himself? If it's the latter, even if the Australian public accepts his apology, he's still a massive douche for referring to himself in the third person.
