I’ll explain why when I get back.

To help my niggas clean up some niggas no longer breathing”

I’m always at my job and always bored.

A group of Germans came up to me on 42nd street.
German Dude: Excuse me, where do I find Madam Tousad?
Me: Walk to the middle of this block and look for Morgan Freeman on the other side walk.

The post has since been deleted but someone complained about a pretty tame holocaust drawing on Jewish Comedianne Julia Segal’s blog, which is dedicated to finding the weird/outrageous/funny pictures circulating the interwebz.
When I worked at The Onion there was a wall of hate mail and the biggest reoccurring complaint was “I usually laugh at your jokes, but making fun of _ is too far.” Sure, it’s okay to make fun of anything and everything that doesn’t have to do with me, but hit a subject that is close to heart for me and I AM OFFENDED!!! BLURRAGGH!!! That’s called discrimination.
When Isaac Hayes quit South Park because they insulted Scientology, his own religion, Trey Parker said “[We] never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we [lampooned] Scientology. He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me that is where intolerance and bigotry begin.”
I am also a Jewish comedian (who isn’t these days) and I am also well aware of the stigma of Holocaust jokes. Yes, they are tacky, overdone, and just plain unfunny half the time, but if you don’t go out of your way to stop jokes about other injustices then you aren’t a savior for political correctness, you’re just perusing your own interests. There is no scale for taboo; if you chose to laugh at homophobic jokes and not slavery because it’s more severe in your eyes then you belittle the LBGT community to serve your sense of morality.
Don’t like it? Don’t follow her. I know I’m taking this way too far but I still stand my ground. Pick your battles, don’t censor others, and learn to laugh.
If you could go back in time and work on any tv show what would it be and what would you do?
I’d love to write and do voices on Freakazoid, how about you?
Too drunk to do this right. Who else has been to jail? Be honest.
