I have a Master's degree in Trolling and graduated with the highest honors possible at Trollerville. They even nicknamed me the 'Trollerblader'.


But that was my old life.


I would say a master trollbater

I don't mind satrical jokes at horrible situations.

I thought Gilbert Godfrieds joke right after 9-11 was hilarious.

For me, humor is how I deal with a lot of terrible situations, and many people feel the same way.

So I have no problem whatsoever with this magazine cover on a morality front (but also have no problem with people that do take offense).

However, as a joke, I feel it is lacking.

First, satire works best when there is a kernel of truth in it. Although Texas did vote for Trump, the area most hit by Harvey voted Hillary. Also, I do not believe that area is a nazi stronghold, and the trope of Trump voters being nazis is old and played out.

I also don't find the joke to be that funny. Nothing to do with it being offensive, but it just seemed dumb.

Charlie Hebdo, is satire and can do what ever they want. It was you who tried to politicize it with your commentary!


Read this Chuckles and just how funny was your post?

"Je suis Texan"



Hebdo may have the right, and I'll even defend that right, but it doesn't mean I won't take a jab of my own.

Doesn't quite work like that in other states though lol. I think Conservative Blacks and Latinos are what makes Texas great.

Texas is OK, it's just so damn small and overcrowded.



97 people per sq/mi instead of the 1 per sq/mi a really great State has. How do they get to the outhouse without stepping on each other.

Ya know, this really is a silly topic to worry about.

Isn't this what they do though?

It's a piss people off mag.

Either ignore it or see it for what it is.

Yeah there was a Charlie Hedbo Massacre or something.



On 7 January 2015 at about 11:30 local time, two brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Armed with rifles and other weapons, they killed 12 people and injured 11 others. The gunmen identified themselves as belonging to the Islamist terrorist group Al-Qaeda's branch in Yemen, which took responsibility for the attack.

Okay, thanks for the clarification.

I wasn't sure as the OP made no mention of it. Is the OP even aware of that tragedy?

yes, i'm familiar with the history. i assumed it was common enough knowledge to not warrant a full recap in the OP.

Sending the Conservatives away is a great idea, but I was thinking Mars.

My reaction? Poor taste and political ignorance.

Moving on.

no? i thought my OP was pretty straight-forward. #ty 'satirical' magazine that often trolls islam while conservatives nod approvingly is now trolling american conservatives. shoe's on the other foot, how does it feel?

nothing trolly about that. unless you think all the threads posted on the internet are not looking for reactions?

if i was claiming an inflammatory position i don't hold in order to generate outrage, THAT would be trolling.
