Oh it's a "Thing" now...
and you're the epicenter of it's origin.

Hahah just kidding.
I know you aren't actually pissed.

I can tell it's a little peeve though.
Which we all have a lot of them depending on who we are and our perceptions.

This world has become a very unfunny place because people can't laugh at themselves.
The PC culture has permeated every aspect of our society.
It sucks.

I've seen all kinds of shirts like that. Maybe some are not as common as others but they're certainly out there.

Ive never seen so many light-hearted, easy going people in one place before.

(Lemme guess, Im the insensitive bad guy?)


Yes you are the bad guy.

I've been laughing because I find racial, cultural, or national stereotypes really funny, so long as people are cool and chill about it.

In fact, at least half of our stand-up comedians focus exclusively on stereotypes because they are so absurd sometimes you cannot help but laugh at em.

Sometimes people take themselves way too seriously.

Especially when it's written. It's hard to get the context of the person who's saying something.

What may seem offensive in writing may come across very different in person.

Things can be said where it's understood as a joke and other times the same thing can be said as an insult. It depends upon the situation.

I don't think anyone here has said anything out of malice however. In fact, I think a sign of not being racist is the ability to joke about it because the overall idea of it has become silly and therefore funny. But depending upon who's listening they may not be there yet.

I figured as much.

This thread reminds me of something:

Remember this?

Paris Magazine Attack


PARIS — Masked gunmen armed with AK-47s and shouting "Allahu Akbar" stormed the offices of a French satirical news magazine Wednesday in a terror attack that left 12 people dead, including the editor and two police officers.


It goes way beyond "PC Culture" and can be found all throughout history.
People get very angry when they are insulted by someone else's jokes, and if they cannot control their anger they sometimes even just murder people in a premeditated murderous rage.

Like one guy above said, religions can be the most touchy subjects of all.
This type of reality makes Internet anonymity very favorable so that people can say whatever they want.

In comparison to the extremist group that was behind the Charlie Hebdo shootings allegedly for cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, the Irish appear to hardly even care at all about people stereotyping and making jokes about them being violent drunks.

Thanks for the heads-up! To celebrate, I just purchased a St. Patrick's day Illinois lottery ticket. I'm hoping to not win more than $600. Illinois is only handing out I.O.U.'s for winnings over $600.

I remember.
But when the Irish start getting pissed off about Irish jokes, things have gone to far.

When is Italian American month? October? Christopher Columbus and all?
Let's all raise a glass of green beer and sing that unicorn song by the Irish rovers.

That's what I'm wondering??? Italian American day!!! We can drink and eat and then eat some more. Then maybe we'll get something to eat too!!

And watch Goodfellas, and Godfather. Wear jogging suits and sing and dance!!! How about May??? Anything going on in may???

Let's not celebrate Columbus though. The guy actually turned out to be a real prick.

The one meal the Irish make that doesn't suck!! I love that stuff. Goes great with beer too. Although too much and things get a bit stinky.

That is pretty funny! May as well have a month for everyone! I'm like 27% Irish or something, do I qualify to benefit from this somehow? LOL.

Of course. You're 100% Irish for the whole month just like everyone else. Then in May you get to be Italian and so on.

What's more unifying than that???

When white people start getting sensitive about jokes about not being able to dance, all is lost.

BTW- Get your teeth off your bottom lip.

So does this mean we are supposed to get sh*tty drunk every day this month instead of just on St. Paddy's???

Alright!!! First good policy by Trump so far. Not sure most of us will even be awake again until June though.


And straight out of the gate with the racist stereotypes of drunken Irish people!
