Is it racist...

to say that the word "honky" cracks me the hell up?

Some kid called me that the other day and I just busted out laughing. It could very well be the silliest, least insulting racial epithet I've ever heard.

What say you, honkies?

I guess it would depend on what color skin the kid who called you that had if it were racist or not; how old was this kid? It could be something he heard from a family member or comedian and was just repeating. Funny tho, I think I woulda laffed!

It was a black kid walking behind me in the halls who thought I was moving too slow... he said "Move faster, honky!" and that was it for me.

Oh, I laffed Carek, and I laffed hard.

A black guy told me today, "White boy, you're gonna die."

Is that racist?

I just cannot get over how awesome that word is. And like any other word, it sounds better when you say it in the Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder voice.

Arguably one of my 5 favorite SNL sketches. Great stuff.

Say hi to your mother for me.

So, you either go to school with a kid from a 70's blaxploitation movie, or George Jefferson. Which is it?
