If you are easily offended and/or have a limited sense of humor, please do not read the content on this blog.
My humor is meant to slightly offend. It’s a fairly transparent (or, so I thought, but a very small number of readers continue to surprise me…) combination of outmoded stereotypes, satire, sarcasm, and pure idiocy.
For example, I don’t actually think my intelligent, career-driven wife has nothing better to do than make me food. I don’t actually think women are bad drivers and shouldn’t be allowed to vote. I don’t think all my Swedish friends rape and pillage. I don’t think Canadians should be put to death for defending Celine Dion. I don’t think most Americans believe Africa is a country. I don’t actually think Native American “Indians” are the real masters at yoga. I don’t think Spaniards bleed red wine and ham. Etc. Etc. By the way, I changed my mind about Canadians…?
And, so you know, I haven’t even written (yet) the things I just mentioned above in my blog. But, if I ever do, who cares? As I just said, I don’t actually believe those things. Remember, satire means making fun of certain people by imitating them in ways that expose their stupidity or flaws (in the examples provided above, I’m making fun of the backwards, middle-America, hillbilly, stuck-in-the-past people out there…think Ralph Kramden or Archie Bunker if you’re old enough). And sarcasm is insincere speech often saying the exact opposite of what you believe, want, know, or mean (ask my wife how much I say the opposite of what I mean each day…it’s infuriating, I’ll admit, to those who just meet me. By the way, if my wife is reading this, LOVE YOU HONEY!).
So, I suppose what I’m saying is, you shouldn’t be waiting to troll me here, when you have all of Twitter to patrol all day, every damn day. You have a million evil people out there who actually believe all the evil things they say. Go after them. Good luck and godspeed!
