A little immature snicker

News out of San Francisco: San Francisco shed a vestige of its free-spirited past as local lawmakers narrowly approved a citywide ban on public nudity. Casting aside complaints that forcing people to cover up would undermine San Francisco’s reputation as a city without inhibitions, the Board of Supervisors voted 6-5 on Tuesday in favour of an …

Movie Friday: W. Kamau Bell (again)

If I were a stand-up comedian, I would be quickly out of a job because everyone would say “you’re just a less-funny version of W. Kamau Bell”: There’s really not much more to say than that. Like this article? Follow me on Twitter!

How is a black man like a parking space?

Okay, I actually DON’T ‘get’ this one

Binder

I talked earlier about people who criticize those who don’t respond positively to cruel and dehumanizing humour as not ‘getting it’. What’s the matter? You don’t think that this is funny?

The comedian was talking about babysitting his nephew (who is of Chinese descent) and hearing his wife sing to the toddler the kid’s song “I’ve been working on the railroad“, and expressing his comical shock and …
