Gabe: hey kelly
Kelly: hey Gabe
Gabe: how’s HUMP DAY?
Gabe: you got the email, right?
Gabe: the all staff email?
Kelly: About “hump day”?
Gabe: that provides a calendar of the all the official office holidays of the year?
Gabe: and then each wednesday is officially Hump Day?
Gabe: you get that? in your hotmail?
Kelly: Huh I did get it, but I guess I didn’t read down far enough.
Kelly: So today’s hump day then?
Gabe: sounds like you didn’t read it at all
Kelly: Well, no, I didn’t.
Gabe: lucky for you, i definitely don’t have an on-going list that is becoming incredibly extensive
Gabe: of all of your fireable offenses
Gabe: phew for you
Kelly: Oh thank goodness
Kelly: I’m glad they haven’t been documented anywhere
Gabe: what’s not so good for you
Gabe: is the news
Gabe: that Jay Leno is being sued for a joke he made about Mitt Romney
Gabe: YOUR POOR PAL, JAY LENO!
Kelly: NOT MY JAY LENO!
Kelly: That’s horrible! Horrible news.
Kelly: And on HUMP DAY OF ALL DAYS
Gabe: tough stuff
Kelly: Why is he getting sued?
Kelly: The joke was too good
Kelly: 2 good 4 TV
Kelly: And he’s getting sued
Kelly: By all other comedians
Kelly: Who don’t think it’s fair?
Gabe: yeah, i think the joke was too funny
Gabe: he made a joke about Mitt Romney having a summer home
Gabe: and then he showed a photo of
Kelly: oh there’s more
Kelly: go on
Gabe: the Sikh holy shrine Golden Temple in Amritsar, India
Gabe: so now India is mad
Kelly: Just Jay bein’ Jay.
Gabe: i mean, it was probably worth it because of what a funny joke that sounds like
Gabe: Jay Leno is OUR generation’s Lenny Bruce
Gabe: it’s his JOB to push envelopes
Gabe: and that’s what he does day in and day out
Gabe: on his hit TV show, The Jay leno Show
Kelly: Right. We’ve all come to expect Jay to be the one to really GO there
Kelly: Not his prob that India doesn’t appreciate his edgy style
Gabe: i mean, truth be told
Gabe: i did not know that India could sue you
Gabe: for making a joke about their church
Gabe: and i also feel like it’s a much stronger case
Gabe: to argue that jay leno is terrible and unfunny
Gabe: that case is airtight
Kelly: “How dare you use our holy shrine in such a TERRIBLE JOKE.”
Gabe: that being said, his joke IS weird and definitely kind of racist?
Kelly: I don’t know
Kelly: I’m sure someone just google imaged “gold place”
Kelly: NOT to sound racist myself
Gabe: actually, you know what, hold on a second
Gabe: hey andrew
Gabe: what’s up
Gabe: welcome to our chat
Kelly: Hi Andrew
Andrew Ti: thank you for having me, hello kelly
Gabe: NOW, ANDREW
Gabe: you run the website
Andrew Ti: oh boy
Gabe: yo is this racist
Gabe: tell the jury?
Andrew Ti: I sure do
Gabe: so, as an expert
Gabe: yo, is this racist?
Gabe: not the lawsuit
Gabe: the terrible jay leno joke
Andrew Ti: hahahahaha
Andrew Ti: oh good, I thought I was going to have to do a shitload of wikipedia research really fast just to come up with something
Andrew Ti: ok, here’s the thing
Andrew Ti: I think that whoever pulled that image obviously doesn’t give a shit about the sikh holy shrine
Andrew Ti: and is probably kind of racist in that they were just looking for the most “exotic” fancy-pants thing they could find
Andrew Ti: like, they wouldn’t have dared to, for instance, use Vatican City
Andrew Ti: even though that’s the same opulent kind of shit
Gabe: so we are saying unintentionally racist due to mild inherent racism?
Gabe: if it please the Race Court?
Andrew Ti: am I the judge or the jury in this case?
Gabe: i don’t know
Gabe: is andrew the judge or jury
Kelly: I think Andrew is both of them
Gabe: i feel like you’re the expert witness
Andrew Ti: oh shit
Andrew Ti: yeah
Andrew Ti: guilty!
Gabe: JUSTICE GAVEL!
Andrew Ti: (all I know about the law is 15 minutes of ally mcbeal)
Gabe: yo, thanks andrew
Gabe: your shit is always on point
Kelly: Thanks, Andrew!
Andrew Ti: yo, thanks guys
Andrew Ti: no doubt
Gabe: bye andrew!
Andrew Ti: peace
Gabe: bye andrew!
Kelly: BYE ANDREW
Andrew Ti: haha
Andrew Ti: oh boy
Gabe: ANDREW SIGNED OFF
Andrew Ti: “peace” means the same as goodbye
Gabe: ANDREW HAS SIGNED OFF
Gabe: in the end i think that we all agree
Gabe: that Jay Leno is terrible and SHOULD be taken to court
Gabe: this is kind of like how they ended up putting Al Capone
Gabe: in jail for tax evasion
Kelly: Yes very good comparison
Gabe: sure, a mildly xenophobic joke about a shrine to make fun of a repbulican presidential candidate is probably not that big of a deal
Gabe: but you can’t slip up, jay leno
Gabe: because when you do
Gabe: we will be there
Gabe: with our Tumblrs
Gabe: calling you racist
