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.

And on a related note, this is a fantastic example of why so many people hate computers—myself included.

Last week, the city of San Francisco passed a resolution icon-external-link-12x12 that was more or less a declaration of intent to maintain its position as the most forward-thinking and progressive community in the world, despite the impending presidency of reality TV star Donald Trump.

In other news, the sky is blue, there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and yuppies like drinking lattes.
