Bite me, I know it's not exactly current.

Is this society too serious about comedy?

When we were growing up back in the day, we always made ethnic jokes and other jokes about ourselves and society and unless someone meant it with malice, we could laugh at each other. And if they did say it with malice we asked for a sincere apology and if it was made we accepted it and moved on and hoped the person learned their lesson. If not, then it was dealt with accordingly. Now it seems you can't joke about anything without getting fired. People and especially the media are taking comedy too seriously!! If someone crosses the line then fine, let them know and get an apology and discuss it if you want, but sometimes you gotta have thicker skin then what we have now. What Imus said was stupid because of all the ho's that are out there, the Rutgers team was definitely not one of them. And I also saw no nappy hair on any of the girls. It was stupid but not a capital offense. Give him some shit, get the apology, make your point and move on. That is the nature of his show and people that like that stuff listen to him and those that don't, don't. Just like Howard Stern. To let corporations and politicians dictate humor is just as stupid as what Imus said. Comedians make jokes about flaws in society and that's what makes us laugh. White, black,asian and latino comedians make jokes about other races and their own and most of the time it's funny and when it's not it's usually not meant with malice and is just a bad joke. Let it go!!!! You gotta let artists create. Not everything is a gem. Not every song, not every movie, not every TV show, not every painting but you got to let them try and learn from their mistakes. Nobody's perfect nor should they be. I think there are a lot more pressing issues in society than comedy. And that's no joke!!!! And now they're trying to take away your freedom of speech on pay radio( XM with Opie and Anthony). You paid for it. You know what you're getting but others who don't pay for it want to censor what you paid for. Keep your eye on what's going on people before you can only use language and comedy geared to 5 year olds on Sesame street. I love kids but but adults need their playgrounds too and I have yet to see a 5 year old pay for radio or cable. Don't let the USA turn into North Korea or any other place that only wants you to hear what the government or conservatives wants you to hear. This is a place where everybody should be heard and it's OK to disagree but not eliminate. And if you don't like what you're watching or listening to on the airwaves, CHANGE THE CHANNEL ASSHOLE!!!!!!!!!!!

Seeing that one of the porn legends from my high school days is almost 60 makes me feel really fucking old!
