The New Yorker is NOT funny.
 
2013-07-12 10:07:14 AM  
That was stupid.
 
2013-07-12 10:07:40 AM  
That was bad and the author should feel bad.

Dafuq?  I didn't know the New Yorker did satire.   Still not entirely sure.

No women, huh? Bet it won't take them long to get over the whole homosexuality thing.
 
2013-07-12 10:08:58 AM  
Dammit, it's satire and it STILL pisses me off.

/stupid texas...

I will offer political asylum for the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. At my house.

You do know that Texas is a cattle raising state. And there are quite a few sheep, mostly around A&M, Rick Perry's alma mater.
 
2013-07-12 10:10:45 AM  
Great, now they're giving them ideas.
 
2013-07-12 10:11:01 AM  
Oooh, how clever and edgy!

This article is proof that liberals do not have any lock on being funny.
 
2013-07-12 10:11:47 AM  
If your articles were as funny as those from The Onion, you'd have a job at The Onion. Everyone else, just stop. It's painful.

Lots of mad and this is better than most onion posts. Haha texas, I already told you I don't care if my favorite band is doing their last your on earth ever and yours is the last place they play I don't even want to see a vidya of it. Same goes for Kuwait, Iraq and the like.

Cheerleading was listed as an exception, if you made it that far into the article without saying "this is stupid" and closing the window. (I barely did)
 
2013-07-12 10:13:51 AM  
How come it's always men who write these articles, and never the women?

Because most women know just how un-funny the actual situation is.
 
2013-07-12 10:17:41 AM  
That's probably the best thing I've ever read in The New Yorker.

Which is really pitiful.

Women don't write a lot of satire.

This kind of crap gets posted but the story about us tapping the undersea data cables doesn't? Whomever selects links to greenlight sucks at doing so.

I'm OK with this if they pay relocation costs.

I love the New Yorker, but rarely is their satire not cringeworthy.

No shiat. Out of staters walk around with their jaws hanging down looking at all the pretty women here. Texas is known for having the prettiest women in the USA.

2013-07-12 10:28:46 AM  
I'd like to offer my pants as an asylum location for all attractive Texas women.

Don't worry I can keep Perry away, all I have to do is start suggesting I can see a bald spot in his perfect hair

I do this of course as a public service

You're in Austin and you STILL don't like the state?  Me thinks the problem is with you, and not the state nor its populace.

That article was dumb and totally unrealistic. It's already been proved that tall fences don't work.

Well, I don't stick my dick into woodchippers either, but I still know such a thing would be awful. Same thing about stepping foot into Texass.

I though we agreed that an Andy article, if it must be greened, at least be labeled satire....

Archae hippy: Dafuq?  I didn't know the New Yorker did satire.   Still not entirely sure.


The New Yorker doesn't do satire. The New Yorker does things that are the intellectual equivalent of a "joke" invented by a drunken fratboy who is living of Mummy and Daddy's money. All his lapdog fratboy buddies think it's funny, so he doesn't understand why the real world just finds it juvenile and offensive.

Let's see, there are a lot of people on welfare in NYC. Therefore, we should believe that NYC consists entirely of "welfare queens" and write "satire" accordingly. Of course, smug, ivory-tower types won't understand the parallel.

Untrue, this line caused a new yorker yankee style chuckle in me.

To a Texan, I'm sure those mutants look lovely.


Of course, to a Texan, a chicken also looks lovely.
