I wonder what Jeff Tiedrich will do with all his free time now.

Here's hoping the whole wretched hive goes down as well

I'm assuming the writers for the late night shows and SNL are going to have to work harder with Trump out of ofice.

Or rather there is less easy comedic material

Half of the comedy world is now sitting in a cab like Vaughn Meader after Kennedy was killed.

I always found him a bit annoying, but this was funny:

We still have Jeff Bergman. He's way better anyway.

I feel like if you're just gonna lie about your ethnicity go big or not at all. Maybe go the Spider-Man route and claim that you were bitten by a radioactive Spanish person. But something about an upper-middle class woman that does yoga lying to make herself more interesting just feels like a trope.

Okay?

I mean, the guy's an asshole in the general sense, but this is like... a basic common-sense thing that any adult would do.  I find this forum/party/social environment unpleasant, I'm under no particular obligation to engage with it at the moment so...bye.

That's... just how any given adult generally would and probably should react to a situation they find uncomfortable, especially if remaining could make it even less so.

I mean... she didn't really.

All she's even being accused of is basically "cultural appropriation", which is at it's most extreme end of offensiveness is about as mildly douchey as having frosted tips in your hairdo.  And usually... isn't offensive at all, in any way.

Even if you wanted to try to take it in a racist direction... Spanish people are straight-up white.  Both explicitly in the classic definition of what a "race" is, and in that Spain was literally the first of the colonial powers to do the colonialism shiat that resulted in race ever existing as a social construct in the first place, and they were very definitively on the 'villain' side of that power dynamic, possibly even more unambiguously than the British or Portuguese.

Oh, no, a white chick is acting like... a white chick.  The horrible, horrible implications.  I'm just sick to my core that someone as important as a... social media influencer, oh come the fark on.

This is more than just "a white chick acting like a white chick". This is a woman who was born in Boston, who attended a prestigious whitey-white boarding school in Weston, claiming not to know the English word for "cucumber". This is Rachel Dolezal-level craziness.

gunther_bumpass: Half of the comedy world is now sitting in a cab like Vaughn Meader after Kennedy was killed.


gunther is alluding to one of the worstbest "too soon" jokes of all time;  Lenny Bruce took the stage in New York City friday night, 11/22/63, and solemnly said, "...........well....there went Vaughn Meader's career."

to what by some tellings, was a sea of groans or a sea of much needed laughter.

and Hilaria or whatever should be dragged. Not for cultural appropriation (which is a stupid farking concept, full stop) but for being an idiot.  what was she looking to acquire from this act?  how many cool points did she get?  my sister, when she was about 25 or so, told us she was gonna start going by her middle name, in what we all assumed was a sort of reboot of her life (???)  now, 20 years on, she's like, "yeah.....that was a very confused me. kind of a dumb thing to do in retrospect."

yeah.  rebooting yourself as a new race or whatever, that's just farking dumb.  dee you emm dumb.  drag her.  idiot.

I've seen careers amongst authors take total nosedive if they were accused of cultural appropriation. Considering that the manuscripts published by the Big 5 go through considerable scrutiny, the fault can't lie with the author alone yet the author takes the stain on their name and in some cases won't get projects again.
