Guys, keep the anti-Semite jokes on the DL. "They" are going to start charging us $1 per joke. FYI.
This offends me

You're kidding right? I mean, that's absurd. What could you possibly want with them? Scotland is peaceful, we have no weapons you can't possibly--

There. You see, Lord NSW, he can be reasonable. Continue with the operation; you may fire when ready.

Do I think that people finding it funny is surprising? Not at all. But I certainly do not think that people finding this humorous is emblematic of why Western Culture is despised: and even if it is symbolic of that hatred, I'm probably getting pretty tired of worrying all about why people find my culture offensive.

I also am probably getting tired of people losing sleep over things that are "offensive". While I don't think people should have license to offend anyone at any time, I also think that thicker thin might sometimes be required in instances like this. He's a freaking lame comedian with a ventriloquist act for heaven's sake. At the end of the day, why do we care if he's offending anyone? To satisfy our quota of weekly required moral outrage that we're supposed to feel? If I had $1 for every Jew joke I've heard in my life, I'd own my own small island by now, and if I got offended every time I heard one, I'd probably have died of a heart attack by now. Again, that does not make it "right" but I think that to expect to waltz through your life without taking or giving offense now and then is unrealistic and probably boring, too.

Anyway, I will reiterate that I don't find this at all funny, and I question the comedic tastes of anyone that does (I'm looking at you, Lazarus).....but I also think that it's a fairly harmless thing, and in no way, shape or form something to get up in arms about, doubly so when you consider the source of the material (the comedian) as well as the types of people rating the clip.

And, lastly, some of the arrogance in here is stifling.
I agree with the most of this, apart from the idea that when you reach a certain point you should stop becoming offended by things. I hope I'll always be offended by things, and will therefore go about shouting at the ignorant bastards who do/say the offensive things. Else... how will they ever learn?!
I think I only posted this video because I saw it and it upset me that people find it funny. I think that's more of an issue than the video itself, although it isn't really an issue at all... You know what I mean, anyway!

Hell, agreeing with most of what I say is enough for me. Carry on.

And I agree, what bothers me, if anything, is that people laughed. Impy the idiot clown from Austin, TX, home of the Fiesta Bowl-bound Longhorns said as much earlier in the thread.

NSW, I should have recognized your stench.

I said it was "pretty funny", and mostly due to the look of the puppet. So don't think I loved that clip or anything. I only got about 3 minutes into it before I got bored.

BTW, what's the object of a Jewish football game?
