Lessons in Humor, Entry 1: Wonton Chips & Salsa

Mural of a Chinese landscape populated with panda bears, but sombreros and tacos have been painted over parts of the pandas. [Formatted]

Is this funny?
How can you even ask such a question? It is fuckin’ hilarious!

Isn’t this cultural insensitive?
Yes, the cultural insensitivity here is off the charts.

If it’s so culturally insensitive then why is it okay to laugh?
Because of the inherent absurdity of it all. A great many restaurants in America serving ethnic food—or some facsimile of it—are culturally insensitive simply by existing. (Taco Bell, anyone? “Live Mas” and “Make a Run for the Border”!) Something like this exposes how silly all of us really are, and should also call into question the recent rise in popularity of righteous indignation.

I like being righteously indignant; it makes me feel important. Instead of laughing, shouldn’t I fly off the handle and punish the world for this mural’s existence?
If shaking your head while laughing is not enough then by all means… knock yourself out. Just don’t expect reasonable people to pay you much mind.

Inroads to Many a Man’s Soul

Meme: "Speed Dating; Man: 'Tell me about your interests.' Woman: 'I love baseball...' Man: 'We're done! She's the one!'" [Formatted]

PRO TIP: Make sure that she also has at least some idea how to throw a baseball, and/or keep stats, and/or heckle, and/or keeps a list of favorite players, etc., etc.

Feeding Time for the (Brain) Dead

Humor sometimes comes at a price: the person recording this video went home paperless.


Some enjoyable viewer comments include: “Decades of the internet’s existence have led up to this,” “I accept this as canon over all of Disney Star Wars,” and “Anakin has a better chemistry with Wiseau than he has with Padme.”

Star Wars sucks ass, by the way.
