FTA -- "Only once the show had aired were the producers made aware that Coddington is suffering from brain cancer and as a result has a partially-shaved head."

Yes, they had to shave (most) of his hair to operate on the tumor itself. He kept the top, and has styled it as such with the top grown in, and the sides still shaved from surgery/for future surgery.

Isn't it great that we can get instantaneous feedback from the Outrage Machine?

Political Correctness is killing comedy. I take it from this thread that Samantha Bee is yet another leftist mouthpiece, but maybe we should try looking at this from a different angle.
Cancer is one of the top four or five things you can throw back at people to shame them, and no one in their right mind would attempt to defend their position in the face of "HE'S GOT STAGE 4 BRAIN CANCER!!"

Look at how Ms. Bee responded- bending over backwards to show that she did somthing HORRIBLE!! Roll Eyes

For God's sake, we're heading toward a condition in this society where the Outrage Machine can provide instantaneous condemnation of the offender, and declare them a non-person.

Comedians

Comedy

Comedy is sarcasm

Comedy is aggression

Political Correctness kills "funny". Kills it. PC sucks the color out of this life. Are we OK with the Outrage Machine as long as it serves our purposes? Is this really what we want?

The joke this woman made- was it really that horrible? Come on. Really?

Is it in any way reasonable to expect a comedian, riffing on people in photographs, to know of the persons' personal plight? Come on.

I saw the guy's haircut. If I'd seen it without knowing the backstory, I might have said "WTF is with the Kim Jong Un 'do?"

OH, but they donated 1k for his medical expenses!! Roll Eyes

That'll take a chunk out of their lunch budget.

Selogic has it right, para. It's not this one isolated incident that defines this tick-turd as a twatwafle. It's her whole line of Lib-tard bullshit that is so anti-ANYTHING Conservative ('cuz afterall, she's a blowhard Canadian SOCIALIST) that makes her the total ass-clown selogic eluded to. It might be an"act", but whoever chose her to be the mouthpiece for said "act" blew it.

She ain't funny and she ain't comedic. I even loathe her body language in her delivery.

Para's point is nonetheless valid.

PC is a cancer of intellect and thought, and translates to speach and behavior.

It is insideous.




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Humor always generates laughs at the expense of someone. I agree PC is a cancer.

BTW, I love how the shaming involves the specific stage of cancer, as if the previous stages of the disease would give a pass to the comedian.
This is not merely someone defending a family member with what should in and of itself be sufficient- the Truth: "My brother is very ill. He has brain cancer."

But, this is insufficient. We have to use scary language that few non-physicians can understand the implications of.

And who is it that decides just who gets a pass and who gets condemned? Maybe next time, the Outrage Machine will turn on you.

Popular speech doesn't need protection. Be careful about playing "Fuck that guy" with the Bill of Rights, 'cause next time, that guy might be you.

The whole point of comedy is "someone has to lose". If that's not part of the equation, there is no comedy.

Yet another example:

http://www.foxnews.com/enterta...ead-babies-joke.html

Is it reasonable to expect a comedian to ensure that their jokes offend no one in their audience? Don't tell me that jokes about dead babies are offensive. That's obvious.
