Who are you, Canines?

I don't mean the forum names you're under. I mean: Who are you?

How can sometimes you make perfect sense and then other times you're so retarded? It can't ALL be from drinking, can it? Are you bi-polar?

And then not take the blame back when he flip-flopped again?

Fuck him. She's a shithead. (I said 'she.' See how progressive I am?)


When I made jokes about Casey Kasem, I wasn't picking on all DJs. I was picking on Casey. When I make jokes about Don/Dawn, I'm not picking on all transgenders. I'm picking on this freak.
Definitely agree with you on the asshole front. Throwing your wife under the bus because you're feeling shitty is no excuse.

I think the thing that got to me was more that there is already a fairly prevalent stereotype that transgender people are confused and flip-flop on their identity, to push a story like this reinforces that. Unlike racism or even sexual identity, people are so unfamiliar with trans* issues, that simple, singular stories like this do a lot more damage than other 'oh what a fucking idiot example of X' stories that are also on the show.

Totally agreed. Not to sound like a lunatic but this is part of the agenda to discredit all that is not straight. I'm actually surprised they couldn't find a black guy to flip flop and make it a full house. But again, not to be a conspiracy theorist.
*why is there a red dot on my chest?*

So I have to ignore the whole story so no one gets confused?

Or between sentences of the story do I need to Myq Kaplan it with, "but this is rare and doesn't represent all transgenders. Also one should say 'transgender' not a 'transgendered person.' Also a rug can be oriental, but a person can't be oriental..."

I gotta live, baby.

Keith's impression of the boss changing from Don to Dawn reminds me of when Mr. Garrison became Ms. Garrison on Southpark season 9
(Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina). The whole episode is available to watch online on the southpark site , but here's a clip for a taste of it:

It was mentioned briefly at the beginning, but based on Dante's appearance on KATG, I started listening, and it's a pretty good show, would be cool if the KATG Network could pick them up...but what do I know about business stuff...

Anyway, the Beige Phillip Show with Dan and Kelly F was fantastic, almost as fantastic as this episode!

Chemda "I would sooner jerk some weirdo off than make out with him" - this sounds like a Wishmaster Choice!

Yeah nobody can't be politically correct all the time but would it really kill the flow of the show to sneak in a sentence on 'wow this whackadoo is really making it harder for transgender people to be taken serious all around' and then continue the jokes?

Also let's not pretend that there weren't jokes flying everywhere when the guy first was mentioned on the show before he got up on all the crazy amnesia shenanigans.

Soccer is ''gay'', boring, and for poor people? Guess I can't like now. Shame, I was really enjoying this World Cup.
