seanferd: Tacos aren't traditional Mexican food anyway, dumbass. I think they meant "how to catch a fat drunk at 3am"


Actually Tacos are a traditional Mexican food. However they are generally made with a corn tortilla and not a flour one. Also the tortilla is NOT fried or "hardshell".

Some 'Splainin' To Do: big pig peaches: Lighten up.

It's no worse than the jokes on nearly every episode of "Family Guy" and farkers quote that show like gospel.

Ricky Gervais has been helpful enough to explain the difference.

When you tell an offensive joke it can be funny if the teller and the audience both realize that it's offensive and are laughing at the offensiveness, and he demonstrates it by telling an (actually funny) joke about child molestation that utilizes that sense of absurd shock.

When either the teller or the listener doesn't get that and laughs because they think that the  content of the joke is the funny part (e.g., "because [ethnic group] is so danged stupid!"), it's no longer a joke  about offensiveness, it's just an offensive joke.

There's no meta-humor in a shirt like this. We're not supposed to be laughing at the stupidity of the idea of setting up traps for immigrants, we are supposed to be laughing at the actual people because they're a bunch of stupid beaners who can't resist tacos or figure their way out of a box.

Now do you get it?


So they truly believe that you can catch a mexican using a taco as bait?

In that case they should have used a taco on a bear trap. That crate is too small except for maybe a midget mexican.

Snelgrove also quoted as saying, "Look, I'm not racist. I farking love ILLEGAL immigrants because ILLEGAL immigrants farking love tacos. Making tacos might as well be printing money as long as they are around."

Tacos dorados do require frying, but they're corn. And north of Mexico, it's not odd to eat flour tortillas. Hell, the typical tortillas in my state are made of flour, but they're slightly big.

It might not be very tasteful or funny, but I don't see it as wrong. The business establishment is not denying the business of a certain people or have a hiring practice that is discriminatory. If their shirts are offensive and they lose customers because of it, well then they can change it. If they garner a following of rednecks who think it's cool, great. If everyone would lighten the fark up things would be much better. You can't have any sort of discussion now as it relates to any sort of cultural issue or one involving people without being called a racist. Do people not see that modern "racism" for the most part is just a diversion that afford politicians a false platform and garner votes with, or more importantly employ to discredit their opponent / confuse the situation?

How exactly is this hurting anything other than potentially the business of CId's? As some other users have pointed out, had this instead been "How to catch a Redneck" and depicts a White Male with a Wife Beater, Toothless with say Natural Lite Beer under a crate, this would be a non issue. Had this depicted an Italian with Pizza, a Chinese man with Rice, etc. the backlash would be arguably way less. Why is that? Is it not a fact that the majority of Illegal Immigrants are from south of the border? Are tacos somehow not a popular Tex-Mex item? Is Taco Bell racist? Seriously, get over stereotypes they exist for a reason. You want to make the world a better place, how about you go after true hate groups perpetuating violence against ethnic groups or help educate those very people you find "racist".

That's pretty much my definition of conservative humor. It typically degrades or demonizes some group or person, is mean and hurtful, and oh yeah not funny. "Mexicans are lazy, smell bad, and only eat tacos. Hey man, don't get mad at me because you can't take a joke!"


You really need to spend some time over in the Politics tab. I think you'd be very suprised on how your fellow liberal farkers post there. They are far from the accepting, enlightened and party of tolerance your party leaders put forth.

*whistle*

Just put this here ..

Below are a few facts about immigration in the United States:

- The number of illegal immigrants in the United States was estimated at 11.5 million in 2011, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

- The illegal immigrant population grew by 27% between 2000 and 2009, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

- Sixty-three percent of the illegal immigrant population (approximately 6.8 million) entered the United States before 2000. (DHS)

- Fifty-eight percent of the illegal immigrant population is from Mexico. (Pew)

- Twenty-four percent of illegal immigrants reside in California; 16% reside in Texas. (DHS)


What else is there? OH. Hard shell tacos are awful. I won't touch them.

You want to fix the 'illegal' problem from Mexico? Help Mexico be a better place to live. Yes, their issues are ours. Moreso than Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and other places on the other side of the world.

The best tacos I ever had were in Rocky Point on the 'Mexican' side of the beach. Up the beach, down a road, past the place with the huge hat and mustache on the building and to a 3 walled 'building' where a family makes the best tacos in the world. They also bring out amazing fixings to go with it- Cucumbers, pineapple, and on and on and on all on corn tortillas (the way it ought to be) with some shrimp.

What else is there? Oh, Mexico has a rich history and has a lot to offer the US. The northern part of Mexico is different than the central/southern part.

Molotov'shiat Me is an awesome song.

This. (But don't swap in another slur; that would be racist.)

Nice use of the semicolon there.

I was homeschooled!

It shows. Net time use an em-dash (i.e. "--") for sentence fragments that follow on an idea.


You might have done well to try a little homeschooling yourself, if you think that an em-dash is properly represented by a double hyphen. Even if one is forced to use standard keyboard characters in place of the actual em-dash character (Alt 0151), it is still incorrect, as a double hyphen is used in pace of an en-dash --- the character used to separate items in a range of values (e.g. "for ages 3-5").

An em-dash, if unavailable, should be represented by a triple hyphen (i.e. "---").

Proportional disparity between the size of that woman's chest and her breasts aside, those look like they could be real. Somewhere, someone gets to feel those every day and that person probably doesn't have nearly the rage required to argue on the internet.

Just looking at her picture has the same effect on me.

sp: Incorrect. The Charleston City Market was, and is, simply a public market. People started incorrectly calling it the slave market and the name stuck.

You are correct about The Old Slave Mart.


Some further research is called for on my part. What I read earlier was inconclusive on the topic of City Market.

Whites have had it so tough being the minority! First they were slaves, then the job discrimination thing, then the education thing. I'm so impressed that they have retained their kindness and civility through their long period of oppression.

The injustice!

I've been to that trolled-out hell hole. However, "tolerance" of flat-earth-level ignorance isn't what "tolerance" is about. Tolerating differences in culture that are no threat to your own is one thing, expecting others to tolerate one version of culture that is being shoe-horned into law to deny others' rights is another. I'm sorry if you've been misled.

The analogous stance in the other direction plays out in gun control threads, where the liberal farkers are all about squelching rights.

If we, as a country, could cease our unquenchable appetite for their cocaine, meth, and weed I think that would solve all sorts of their problems. I'm doing my part... nothing but Afghani black-tar stuff for me!
