Haha. WHAT A SCANDAL! “It’s so weird that a racist joke would be printed in a newspaper that operates out of what looks like an adult bookstore,” said no one. “I threw my iPad across the room in disgust!” no one added. Get it? Because of how people don’t read newspapers anymore? But it’s funny because you don’t really think of lower-middle-class white people in what is clearly an industrially ravaged Midwestern town using iPads? Snore. Seriously, though, this is my favorite non-issue in awhile. Some stupid piece of shit racist living in a tiny racist town publishing a racist joke in a garbage newspaper with a circulation of 400 is the reverse Ground Zero Mosque. It’s times like these that we’re all so sad that Air America died, I’m sure. (Thanks for the tip, Baby Friday.)

  6. “Well then, let’s paint the robots white!”

    “We already tried that.”

    “What happened?”

    “They all sat around kind of apologizing for a racist joke without admitting it was a racist joke and saying that things had been taken too far, if there was really anything to take in the first place, and we all joke like that so why should we get one guy in trouble just because he wrote it down in the newspaper, and please get that camera out of my face, liberal media.”


  7. “Everyone has their own opinion when it comes to which races are superior to others.”

    In the town’s defense, they did show a surprising degree of alacrity in organizing a search party to find said persons of color.

  25. Unsubscribe.

  26. “And one of them think’s he’s the president of the United States.” Obviously this editor is at the top of his game.

  27. I got really nervous at first because he looks exactly like my grandfather. Is it racist that I now think all grandfathers look alike?

  31. They should have painted the robots a shade of green that matched the golf course. That way they wouldn’t be distracting to golfers or receive new programming from the magic black paint.
