A classic line from The Simpsons:
“There’s no need to murmur, ma’am. Here at Itchy and Scratchy Land we’re just as concerned about violence as you are. That’s why we’re always careful to show the consequences of deadly mayhem, so that we may educate as well as horrify.”
I don't see enough Muslim memes. This was a phrase I used to hear all the time as a kid:
My pal Jen sent me the following story:
"A father said to his daughter “You graduated with honors, here is a car I acquired many years ago. It is several years old, but before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you. The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because it looks very worn out.”
My favorite is accidental racism or things that aren't racist in their home cultures, but are racist in the US:
Judge Lynn Toler from Divorce Court said the following to a guy who claimed he liked to make it rain at the strip club:
At $7.25 an hour, how much precipitation can you cause?
This is unsettling.
As the self-proclaimed Drama King, this meme is accurate:
I'm fascinated by trolls, mainly because a former friend became one. It's interesting to read about the darkness that resides within these people.
...the data exposed a quite different reality: internet tossers are just tossers, whether online or in real life.
In other words: the internet isn’t making people rotten, it’s just handing the rotten people a bigger microphone.
From the book Dynastic, Bombastic, Fantastic: Reggie, Rollie, Catfish, and Charlie Finley's Swingin' A's, this great story about outfielder Billy North:
greg dusts off his perry mason costume to say, “aha! that means you believed him, which means he isn’t lying and you’re here on behalf of a thief!” what was that sound? oh yeah, that was my bottom jaw s h a t t e r i n g against the floor. what a thrilling and hilarious trap!!!!! i really do be forgetting sometimes that greg is a real live trained lawyer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
