Have you seen this bit from D. L. Hughley? http://www.comedycentral.com/video-clips/bid40t/stand-up-d-l-hughley--slow-kids After a few jokes about how stupid children are these days, he talks about how kids die in hot cars. He explains that when he was a kid, he would have been smart enough to get out of a hot car. I heard it (audio only) a few days ago while only half listening. First, I was horrified. Second, I thought that maybe I was being oversensitive. Maybe the joke was at his own expense, parodying the whole "kids these days" cliche. are these days. Babies dying in hot cars are the ultimate innocent victims, so actually suggesting that they are at fault is therefore something only someone who is completely oblivious and self-centered could say. Then I found the video and listened and watched again, and I had no doubt that this is the most offensive and least funny comedy routine I have ever seen. The most painful part is the cut to the laughing audience. Am I missing anything?
Okay, so. We are going to have a poll right now, about this standup routine, which IS safe for work. (The curse words are bleeped.) Ready? And then afterwards I will tell you what I think. And that will be today's update because this is pretty heavy.
