OK so what have we learned here?

Homosexuals have just claimed speed walking as their own. Now all speed walkers are gay, thanks to gay people. Don't make fun of speed walkers anymore.

Shooting snickers at people is not a good idea, because you will make other more easily influenced people want to kill people. Don't even aim a snickers at someone.

Is that right?

JC Penny's unaired ad:

http://clicked.msnbc.msn.com/archive...0/1175629.aspx

Quote:
The folks online are calling it the viral ad JC Penny doesn't want you to see, which sounded suspicious to me since of course if it's an ad they want you to see it. But now I see it's being forced off of YouTube so maybe they really don't want you to see it. Luckily, AdAge has it on their own server and since they've written about the story they can probably argue some kind of fair use. NOTE: I think this is work safe but be advised, the plot of the video is two teens practicing speed dressing from underwear to fully clothed. So at a few points in the clip, as they practice, you see these two teens in their underwear. But not sexpot underwear and not really long lingering looks. The controversy here is not teens in underwear but the overall impression that the teens are doing this speed dressing so they can avoid getting caught kanoodling in the basement later on.

That must be it.
If your reaction to a male speedwalker is "gay guy" then that's your own damn fault and I shouldn't be deprived of funny just because of your perception.

Too many people take life way too seriously. I wish I could sell people a sense of humor.

says the guy who is trying to make a serious argument that he is being deprived of a commercial that he has obviously watched, linked to, and can watch in a contimuous loop until teh internet melts down.

If you don't get that, my joke fee schedule is pretty reasonable.

I see what you did there olllllo, clever! I was making more of a generalization about "funny" but I get it.

And sure this one made it to the internet, but how many times haven't they made it... how many times?

wait... what was offensive? the fact that Mr.T says, "Get some NUTS!" and then takes a huge bite from a snickers and says, "Mmmmm".
