If being repelled is wrong, I don't wanna be right  
I was already sure that I wasn't interested in the BBC America programme "Little Britain" when Tim Goodman put it this way:

Is this country ready for "Little Britain"? Only if we could stand an unanimated version of Fox's "Family Guy," which we probably couldn't.

Since I can't stand the animated version of "Family Guy", that pretty much settled the question of whether I would be checking this show out.

But Goodman likes the show, and as proof it's good, he posits this:

Shouldn't a man dressed up as an elderly woman [...] who projectile-vomits on people when she feels her racism boil up be funny on both sides of the pond? Well, yeah, it should be.

Um, no. No, it TOTALLY SHOULDN'T.

"Humor" like this is why I haven't watched comedies, television or theater, in years. If that makes me dull or judgmental or humorless ... then fine. I'd rather own that than watch people vomiting for my "entertainment".

[Shudder.]

It is scary what people will watch! I had a button made up a while ago that says "Culturally illiterate in an illiterate culture"... :-)
