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

    I've always found the moral of that story difficult to divine. After all, the wrongness of persistence is entirely dependent on perspective, cause, and execution; the story is derisive of persistence in general.

    You are truly an insufferable bore.

    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 was with you until this. You didn't earn shit, I don't think you survived the Holocaust, did you?

    May I ask what camp you fall into, one-drop or otherwise?

    Have you filed your forms in Geneva for reparations for all the atrocities your people have suffered yet?

    [​IMG] people like you make me sick. I helped my grandparents file forms. I'm only alive because of what they went through and survived. As a Jew, I've earned my keep simply by being a Jew.

    Not even remotely Jewish. I may have spoken with a Jew once. However, +1.

    There are people that actually think anything MetroStyles posts is even remotely funny?
    No I don't think so - not even himself if I had to guess.

    I often enjoy Metrostyles' posts. I would like to start a petition. Don't ban MS for this (single) transgression.

    I'll assume every post below this one a signature.

    At least not until he finishes the next issue of The Homosexualist. That was funny and some of us contributed material to the next edition!!!

    Good job so quickly comparing the plight of your grandparents (and many other people) during The Holocaust and WWII at large to the metaphorical suffering you endured by filling out forms. I'm not making you sick, you are the sick one. The Holocaust is and will forever be, much like 9/11, unfunny, I don't care if you are a Jew or in the latter case, a New Yorker. Entitlement is for douchebags.

    Should we remand Mafoofan to a psychiatrist's care because he continues to post on StyleForum? If we really loved him, we would.

    Those of you who did not grow up with Holocaust survivors need to STFU re Moo's remarks. You have no idea what you are talking about.

    Gotta love it, eh? A bunch of redneck non-Jews running their mouths about something their pappy probably told them was a lie.

    WTF? Yeah, my parents sure told me that (and the fact that three of my four grandparents being involved in WWII is surely made up). If you lack the reading comprehension to understand something so simple as what I said prior, then don't bother responding. Point was, no one has a right to joke about things like the Holocaust (even if I were to have had no knowledge of the Holocaust, my remarks are still valid, human suffering and loss of life really isn't funny). It would seem i'm giving more respect to those who actually suffered, no? I suppose i'm just a dumb redneck though. Can I insert my own ad hominem? Moo, you are a piece of shit and one surely wouldn't be out of line to punch you in the face for all the stupid shit you utter/do. Doucheskin bag incident anyone?

    I agree that no one should about the Holocaust, but it is different when Jews do it than when non-Jews do it. Black people can call each other the N word, but when a white guy does it it's "ohhhhhh shit!" time. It's the same principal, I guess.

    As for your ad hominem, bring it, keyboard warrior tough guy.

    this point is absurd, but accepting it more than jews can make jokes about the holocaust since the the shoah though large part of the holocaust it was nto the only part. catholic were killed roma were killed hell communist were killed , waht gives the jews the unique right to joke about holocaust compared ot toehr grousp that suffered it?

    Can everybody agree to only sign this petition once?

    Thank you.
