I don’t think I’ve logged onto VG in about a million years (maybe like 7 months), but I just logged on to thumbs up this and say that this comment, right here, really made me re-think my initial reaction which was “Uh, this isn’t racist.” I still don’t think it’s necessarily racist, and I definitely don’t think this is the kind of thing we should use up our outrage over (does anyone remember the incredibly sexist Fiat and Teleflora ads from last year? I do, because they were so incredibly sexist) but this comment really, really made me think and so I appreciate your contribution.

True story: One time (in 2003, not 1943) when I was working at a LAW FIRM, another LAWYER was telling me about an experience he had with a dancer at a strip club (!!!!!) and explained that “She was pretty. You know, she was a colored girl, but had a great body.”

Then I got mad at him and ended the conversation.

I had to google neg (oldladygum). I’m not sure what Aubry Plaza and Ryan Gosling would have to say about National Emergency Grants, so I can’t contribute to this game. As you were.

All the upvotes in the world for this. Tell the story, Mike. Don’t be part of it. I absolutely loved Sicko (by “loved” I mean “was repulsed by the facts portrayed in”). Until he took people down to Cuba and got them medicine and put on that weird sanctimonious-grandma face that he does sometimes that makes me want to make my dad proud and become a Republican. (Kidding of course, but the point remains. I hate that weird face he makes when he’s getting all righteously indignant.)

There’s a joke about this:

Somewhere, but I’m not as funny as you guys, so go ahead and make it for me (all of us, really.)

Absolutely! Sorry if it did come across as me taking it personally. I engaged in this discussion with others elsewhere and was similarly misunderstood, and my rudely-worded response to what you said was probably residual angst. Sorry.

OMG I’m going to stare at this for hours, Everything already feels better.

Also, dude, like I said, my analogy wasn’t well-articulated. Perhaps, dude, if this wasn’t an internet commentary space, you might understand what I was trying to say, dude. But dude, since I did a poor job of articulating myself, and my attempts to clarify have only been met with more ire, I think I’ll just let it go, dude.

 +2Posted on Sep 9th, 2011 | re: Rick Perry Killed 234 People (APPLAUSE BREAK) (172 comments)

Apparently not, since I got downvoted 13 times. Which makes me a REALLY sad puppy. Who has some kitten .gifs they wanna post?

 +7Posted on Sep 8th, 2011 | re: Rick Perry Killed 234 People (APPLAUSE BREAK) (172 comments)

I guess I was just trying to say this was really gross and anyone who would try to defend the applause should think about how gross they would think it would be if the shoe was on another issue’s foot. And with that horrible mixed metaphor, I will take my leave of this discussion because it’s making me a sad puppy.

 -2Posted on Sep 8th, 2011 | re: Rick Perry Killed 234 People (APPLAUSE BREAK) (172 comments)

Really? You don’t see the analogy that I’m trying to make? Hm. I’ll have to go back to the drawing board on that one.

I suppose it would make more sense if I said “I wonder what the reaction would be if a crowd of Democrats applauded when a Democrat governor of a state where abortion was legal said how many procedures had been performed in her state.”

By the way: I’M NOT GOING TO BE IGNORED DAN.

(By the way, for all of you that think that only pinko liberal commies read Videogum, behold the downvoting on the comment above.)

 +28Posted on Sep 8th, 2011 | re: Rick Perry Killed 234 People (APPLAUSE BREAK) (172 comments)

I think that the Speaker of the House cum Minority Leader showing her approval of what the president (who is a member of her own party) has to say is a *little* different than a crowd applauding the death of 234 people. But that’s just me.

 -12Posted on Sep 8th, 2011 | re: Rick Perry Killed 234 People (APPLAUSE BREAK) (172 comments)

I just wonder what the reaction would be if a crowd of pro-choice advocates applauded when a doctor that performs abortions said how many proceedures she had performed.

I just upvoted you to bring you back up to zero. Dogs who like pretty men on bad TV shows unite.

And there’s so much math in it. If a then b, what?

Nope, lots of F trains are the shiny blue well-lit cars. If this is the F, it’s just one more reason for me to hate it. Ick, you guys, I’m worried about the F.

As you can probably guess from my tale above, you get all my upvotes in the world for this, brother/sister.

 +1Posted on Jan 14th, 2011 | re: Top Chef: All-Stars S01E06: We're Gonna Need A Bigger Shark Bag (36 comments)

I am probably an Angelo apologist even on my worst days (huh?) but I am definitely with him on this, my love for his ROM aside. I am terrified – TERRIFIED – of swimming where I can’t see my feet because I am sure that a shark or some other water-dwelling predator (alligator, snake, large mouth bass) is going to eat my toes and the rest of me. I don’t care if it’s a totally landlocked lake in the Midwest where I am much more likely to catch chlamydia than I am to encounter anything with a combination of scales and teeth (I’m not going to name names, Lake of the Ozarks), you will not catch me swimming there evah. Nope, no way no how.

Seriously. I signed in on my work computer which is Amish and slow just to upvote this. I too am tired of all this shade of purple.

How long have you been waiting for someone to bring up ceilings so you can post that?

 +8Posted on Jan 6th, 2011 | re: Duh Aficionado Magazine: Gwyneth Paltrow Does Not Worry Too Much (58 comments)

I did the same thing (although mine was more of a prolonged “UGHHHHH” and pulling my t-shirt over my face so I didn’t have to see it) and my mom’s reaction was the same.

Wait, what? I assume that this is a personal vendetta because I cannot believe there are three people who like Easy A so much that they would downvote me.

 -6Posted on Jan 4th, 2011 | re: The Hunt For The Worst Movie Of All Time: Sisyphus Turns 2011 (558 comments)

Easy A. It’s horrible. There’s not enough weed or alcohol in the world to make that movie even remotely watchable. Trust me.

It is the bane of my existence that I don’t know how to post a photo of my dog in a post here because you would all LOVE Pork Chop.
