Good. Give it more publicity. First time watching the trailer and it looks highlarious

"Violently offended." Like Jesus.
 
2014-07-25 07:18:31 AM  
Dammit. All the right people are angry with this show. Now I pretty much have to watch at least a few episodes.

Show sounds like nothing I'd ever watch, but if you're pissing off One Million Moms, you can't be all bad.
 
2014-07-25 07:50:25 AM  
Well I'll be DVRing this, now that I know it exists.  Also, that comment section is...interesting.

I suspect that "violently offended" isn't a metaphor.

Relatively Obscure: Show sounds like nothing I'd ever watch, but if you're pissing off One Million Moms, you can't be all bad.


Pretty much how I feel. Hell I may even give it a one episode chance now.

I love the Boondocks. Pissing off "one million moms" is a bonus.

Paging Barbra Streisand to the courtesy phone.

Don't offend us violently. You wouldn't like us when we're violent.

// couldn't that be interpreted as a threat?

Apparently minorities still don't know their place.  Jesus is hispanic, not black.

Dammit I wish they'd just make more Black Dynamite. Like extra long season

I've been looking forward to this show - I know Mike Clattenburg (the creator of Trailer Park Boys) is involved as a writer and director, so it should be funny
 
2014-07-25 12:37:52 PM  
So Adult Swim can join the ever growing ranks of companies such as JcPenney's, Archie Comics, Walt Disney, and others that have all told One Million Moms to go fark themselves,

Soon, there will be more of them than there will be actual members of One Million Moms.

White, Ridiculously Rich, Republican Jesus frowns upon your shenanigans.

Jesus better get busy with the pecans, I want pie.
 
2014-07-25 12:39:16 PM  
I hope Punk Rock Jesus makes a cameo.

White Moses?

A black man can steal your stereo, but he can't be your savior.

/at least that's how it goes from memory

Yeah, he looks like he has indigestion.
Probably farts a lot.

Whew! I was starting to think I was the only person watching that.

K3rmy is right!   how could a poor migrant become a poor migrant Messiah?

Well yeah, he's been dead for awhile, probably is kinda ripe.

Saw the commercial the other day and got a few laughs out of me. Probalby going to watch and knowing it pisses off the moms group is a bonus.

Everybody knows that Jesus was a white guy born in Ohio.

Dr Dreidel: Don't offend us violently. You wouldn't like us when we're violent.

// couldn't that be interpreted as a threat?


It could be, but in the way that you can interpret it any way you want.  "Violent" doesn't necessarily mean physical, it may just mean furious or vehement.
 
2014-07-25 01:00:52 PM  
Is it an outrage?
 
2014-07-25 01:01:46 PM  
I hope Obama apologizes to them before they storm an embassy or blow up something.
 
2014-07-25 01:04:28 PM  
Slightly off topic, but I can't wait until this Christmas to hear conservative groups complain: "Why did they have to make Annie black? If they can have a black Annie, why can't we have a white Dreamgirls?"
 
2014-07-25 01:08:01 PM  
"I'm Jesus, not Superman! That shiat hurts!"
 
2014-07-25 01:08:49 PM  
The commercial I saw for it made it look absolutely terrible.

But pissing of "One Million Moms" is at least one good thing to come from it.

I'm offended, just because it's another farking live-action program on the CARTOON NETWORK

Tax Boy: I'm offended, just because it's another farking live-action program on the CARTOON NETWORK


Just change the channel TLC, The History Channel, or MTV and every thing will be fine.
 
2014-07-25 01:14:18 PM  
I think the real issue here is that no one seems to have a problem with the jews putting a black man to death on a cross.

Tax Boy: I'm offended, just because it's another farking live-action program on the CARTOON NETWORK


But it's technically not Cartoon Network; it's Adult Swim. Same channel, different format.
 
2014-07-25 01:22:09 PM  
I've never even heard of this, and thanks to these people, it is getting some pretty damn good free advertising. Made even more so by handing out literature about it to "every church in America".
 
2014-07-25 01:24:54 PM  
Fark just more lefty fapping.

I'm more interested to see Mike Tyson's Mysteries.
 
2014-07-25 01:24:56 PM  
People filled with God's love sure do seem to be angry.

I guess these moms missed all those wholesome little gems like "Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil" and "Xavier".  Ah, Adult Swim, I miss you more than any of the other cable channels I used to get.

Pretty much this.

Isn't that pretty much what the Spice Girls movie was?
