"He Will Rape Them With His Mouth!"

It's hard to defend David Letterman's "A-Rod knocked up Sarah Palin's daughter" joke, mainly because it wasn't funny. And the reason it wasn't funny didn't have anything to do with shock or good taste or some hysterical reaction about alleged pedophila. It just wasn't funny.

But this...THIS is funny (After the ad):

There are some crazy-ass people out there. Sheesh.

How many of those folks in the clip do you figure are actors auditioning? New Yorkers can't be that deranged for real, can they?

It's funny and sad at the same time. I read elsewhere that the organizer jumped in a cab and got out of there when only forty people showed up.

JD Rhoades said...

Rob: Some ugly-ass people, too.

Peter: Have you ever BEEN to New York? :-)

Randy: that's the thing about these protests. Only a few show up, but they're so batshit crazy they get a lot of attention.

I have, but I guess I also had some misplaced hope for my fellow humans. You picked a good headline for your post, probably the craziest remark from that clip.

This was funny. Jesus on a Vespa (to borrow a Dave phrase).

I think the whackjob who was snapping his fingers rides the staten island ferry annoying the shit out of readers by preaching the good word "you're all sinners and until you accept jesus christ as your lord and savior, you'll be condemned to the flames of hell."

Like that.

Funny stuff ... and just what the GOP needs, more stupid shit to bury them a little deeper.

Even I can't bring up Democratic issues with this one. It's just funny.

And now I see that Olive Garden has pulled their advertising from the Letterman program. Oh well, I never liked that chain much anyway.

JD Rhoades said...

Truth be told, I never cared for Letterman either. He's always come off as a smug asshole, and Paul Shaffer's "Mr. Showbiz" act got real old real quick. But if he's made enemies like these, I might have to reconsider my position.

OMG! And these people think they're better than David Letterman? Yeah, the comment he made wasn't funny, but for cryin' out loud, Sarah Palin made it so much more than it should have been with her big mouth. A simple moue of disgust with her lips (which she did many times before) with a shake of the head in contempt, was all that was needed to just get over it already.
