What this situation requires, is a TRULY, stupid and futile gesture be done on somebodies part.

And I know just the 6 friends to do it.

I do wonder what it's like to go through life constantly ready to be offended.  It must be difficult.

They've started the children early, they should be adequately trained to accept this by now.

This has to be satire, right?

Yeah, this will surely reduce the number of people pointing out their derpiness.

And lo Wapanese was considered offensive. And lo the great Moot smote the term from all of /b/

And so the Weeaboo was born, and with the Weeaboo, Moot realized his folly.

people will just find some other term.

On the radio this morning I heard we're not supposed to use the word "bossy."  Now I find out I'm not supposed to say "derp," "crazy," or "you guys."  Can I get an app that will keep me abreast of all words that might hurt the feelings of some liberal arts major somewhere, so I can reduce my vocabulary accordingly?

///I got used to "you guys" being non-gender specific a couple of decades ago when it was constantly used in classes where the students (and instructors) were nearly all female.  But I guess that's been overruled.

It sounds like the world's source for news from VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE about VERY IMPORTANT THINGS.  They also proudly state that they've been featured on The Drudge Report.

I'm getting a "common clay of the New West" vibe going here.

It's simple.  Stop talking.  It's the only way to be sure, because I'm sure these people are probably pretty big in the nuke-protesting world too.

No wonder she wants Derp banned. She made the derp face too much as a child and it stuck that way.

She sounds like quite the Tumblrina Social Justice Warrior.

That's interesting because I've been wondering what it's like to go through life expecting the entire world to give you a pass for not thinking about what you say and how you say it.

I guess it is only a matter of time before Transylvania University bans the word "Trannie".

How do I know that there is a Transylvania University and that it is is Lexington, Kentucky, of all places?

By coincidence, I was working on the Watkins line in my family tree today and discovered that the first great grandson of my tenth great grandfather Henry Watkins is Henry Clay, a famous Kentuckian and member of  of Transylvanian University's Board of Trustees.

Clay was a famous Southerner. Abraham Lincoln thought very highly of him. He founded the Whig Party and ran for President three times, and even more remarkably was voted one of the top five members of the US Senate of all time by fellow congress critters.

Top five, bubba!

A weird looking old bird, wasn't he?

But he was quite handsome as a young man back at  Good Old Transylvannia U.

First West of the Alleghenies


Yes, the man was a Southerner, a lawyer and a politician, but I am proud to welcome him to the family. If Lincoln liked him, that's good enough for me. Lincoln was a good judge of character and the usefulness of men it seems to me.

TheGreatGazoo: Do they have handicapable parking spots?


What's the problem with the word "handicapped," exactly?  It's the word they came up with to get people to stop saying "crippled," and to expand the concept of accomodation for disabilities to include more than people who have mobility problems.
