I don't understand, perhaps you can clarify something.<br><br>You say that the stamp, which "depict an exaggerated black cartoon character known as Memin Pinguin", is so insensitive that you love it?<br><br><br><br>I'm going to show this stamp to my co-worker, who is black, to see if he thinks it's funny. He's got a real good sense of humor, but I'm thinking that this may not pass as too funny. At least I don't think it is.<br><br>Of course, everyone knows I'm perfect* so then I must be right, eh? <br><br><br><br><br>*according to you that is.<br><br>
If the US issued stamps with cartoon characters dating back to the '40s, we'd have some winners too that aren't exactly PC. <br><br><br><br>If we issued a stamp today, say, Pepe Le Pew, it would likely start a war.<br><br>
LOL!!!<br><br>Go ahead John. Perhaps your coworker isn't as thin-skinned as you are!<br><br>Ethnic humor is what it is, ethnic humor. It's no different than Speedy Gonzales was in the Warner Brothers cartoons. It's why Amos and Andy is still funny. <br><br>There's nothing racist about it!<br><br>
It's not being thin-skinned at all. <br><br>I think what's kinda funny is how on one hand you make fun of 'necks and NASCAR people yet this type of cartoon is exactly what I associate with rednecks.<br><br>
