That may be his take on a pretty common, old (which is not to say bad) aphorism. I've heard other versions like, "The proper response to sacrilege is laughter." Of course, sacrilege is not exactly the same as evil.

That's probably because virtually no-one in Japan uses the Emperor's name, but they instead use the title of his period as Emperor. Thus, Hirohito is called Showa Tenno (the Emperor Showa). I have never heard anyone say "Hirohito" in Japan but the vast majority of people would know the Emperor Showa. His son Akihito, the current Emperor, is referred to as Tenno Heika, which simply means "current Emperor".

Even though the current Imperial period is referred to as the Heisei period (it's now the 22nd year of the Heisei period), it would be rude to refer to the current Emperor as "Heisei Tenno" as that is how he will be referred to once he has died. It would also be rude to refer to the current Emperor as "Akihito" as that would be regarded as very familiar and thus very presumptuous.

Metrostyles is a worthless piece of shit who is trying to turn the forum into 4chan, and enough basement-dwellers and shut-in 13 year-olds want to play along to make this a possibility. Please shut down his thread that crosses a line -- and you know which one.

That said, foo is displaying all of his very worst characteristics in that thread and the Pierce Brosnan thread. I don't need to list them here.

Love you too, babe.

Take the Mel Brooks quote Manton mentioned -- I don't think it can be said that Brooks only developed that attitude because the Holocaust had no personal relevance for him.

I think that the difference is that Mel Brooks is Jewish and can do what he wants with the Holocaust. As can any other Jew. I don't mind someone of the Jewish heritage "making fun of" or "dealing" with our history in whatever way they choose. They've earned that right. Anyone else though... not so much. It becomes offensive.

I'd appreciate it if you did, actually.

There are people that actually think anything MetroStyles posts is even remotely funny? I have no problem with really awful jokes, given my proclivity towards dead baby jokes, but the kid is just un-funny. And I always get him and Flambeur mixed up.

RJ, please discipline your children. Thank you.

Have you ever read the Brer Rabbit story about the Tar Baby?
