Or, y'know, build the buses the same as San Francisco's MUNI was doing twenty years ago, where stepping down in the rear stairwell automatically opens the doors if the bus is at a stop. (And a slap to the handrail, or a good push to the door, will do the same if the sensor's buggered.)

I've been in churches over the years with pastors, priests, vicars, elders and ministers, but never one with a 'coach'.

(And now I'm picturing a bulky guy with a sweatshirt, cap and whistle standing in the pulpit. Which apparently isn't too off the beam for Mars Hill, so nevermind.)

@7: I know only what I see. And what I see is a jerk who reached a bit too far in going for the "Right On!" crowd.

Yeaaah...no. I don't buy various varieties of dimwitted "but I wuz only kiddin'!" bigotry from the plethora of rightwing comics who've managed to step on their dicks in the last decade or so...so why, Mac Daddy, should I buy the same claim from precious progressive you?

Stow the shit, Macklemore. You fucked up bigtime. You went for the cheapshot (with a chorus of "Right On!" from some quarters, no doubt, since Orthodox+ Jews have done some right good oppression overseas)...and you discovered that however liberal (and queer, thenkew) your audience might be, we know ugly stereotypes when we see 'em...and all the fumfuring about "witch noses" is just frantic backpedalling.

You. Fucked. Up.

I don't give a shit what your motivations for that piece of stupidity were, You. Fucked. Up.

Own it, apologize, and do better. Or, alternately, fuck off home.

@2: (insert Beavis & Butthead snickering). Seriously, are you 12 or what?

(Or as one obviously gay man said to his even more obvious partner 30+ years ago on BARNEY MILLER - "Could you, maybe, stop perpetuating the stereotype for at least a minute?!")

Not everything has to be snide, not everything has to be a dig. Can you not take that excellent and heartfelt piece of writing at face value?

@84: The accurate line is "OH, INTERCOURSE THE PENGUIN!" Not bieng pedantic, it's just a lot funnier.

Feb 7, 2014 DonServo commented on "What's a whippet?".
Since the only whippet I know is a racing dog somewhat smaller than a greyhound, "doing a whippet" has some unfortunate connotations.

@39: "Isn't that right, Flopsy?

"Flopsy?!"

*BANG* of revolver shot

Probably "The Spanish Inquisition". My mother was not a huge Python fan, but watching that episode with its recurring bits of "NOBODY EXPECTS..." etc. had her giggling more and more at each iteration...until she literally fell off the couch laughing at the final sting of "NOBODY EXPECTS THE SP...oh, bugger."
