I don't think I've logged onto VG in about a million years (maybe like 7 months), but I just logged on to thumbs up this and say that this comment, right here, really made me re-think my initial reaction which was "Uh, this isn't racist." I still don't think it's necessarily racist, and I definitely don't think this is the kind of thing we should use up our outrage over (does anyone remember the incredibly sexist Fiat and Teleflora ads from last year? I do, because they were so incredibly sexist) but this comment really, really made me think and so I appreciate your contribution.

February 1, 2013 on A Friendly Chat With Gabe And Kelly: VW’s Racist Super Bowl Commercial
True story: One time (in 2003, not 1943) when I was working at a LAW FIRM, another LAWYER was telling me about an experience he had with a dancer at a strip club (!!!!!) and explained that "She was pretty. You know, she was a colored girl, but had a great body." Then I got mad at him and ended the conversation.

November 3, 2011 on Ann Coulter Should Have Rested Her Garbage Case About Black People!
I had to google neg (oldladygum). I'm not sure what Aubry Plaza and Ryan Gosling would have to say about National Emergency Grants, so I can't contribute to this game. As you were.

October 28, 2011 on Best New Party Game 59: How Did Aubrey Plaza “Neg” Ryan Gosling?
All the upvotes in the world for this. Tell the story, Mike. Don't be part of it. I absolutely loved Sicko (by "loved" I mean "was repulsed by the facts portrayed in"). Until he took people down to Cuba and got them medicine and put on that weird sanctimonious-grandma face that he does sometimes that makes me want to make my dad proud and become a Republican. (Kidding of course, but the point remains. I hate that weird face he makes when he's getting all righteously indignant.)

There's a joke about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNcZHDopFb8 Somewhere, but I'm not as funny as you guys, so go ahead and make it for me (all of us, really.)

October 25, 2011 on “Pizza Party” Is The Last Song, We Don’t Need Any More Songs, Thanks!
Absolutely! Sorry if it did come across as me taking it personally. I engaged in this discussion with others elsewhere and was similarly misunderstood, and my rudely-worded response to what you said was probably residual angst. Sorry. OMG I'm going to stare at this for hours, Everything already feels better.

Also, dude, like I said, my analogy wasn't well-articulated. Perhaps, dude, if this wasn't an internet commentary space, you might understand what I was trying to say, dude. But dude, since I did a poor job of articulating myself, and my attempts to clarify have only been met with more ire, I think I'll just let it go, dude.

Apparently not, since I got downvoted 13 times. Which makes me a REALLY sad puppy. Who has some kitten .gifs they wanna post?

I guess I was just trying to say this was really gross and anyone who would try to defend the applause should think about how gross they would think it would be if the shoe was on another issue's foot. And with that horrible mixed metaphor, I will take my leave of this discussion because it's making me a sad puppy.

Really? You don't see the analogy that I'm trying to make? Hm. I'll have to go back to the drawing board on that one. I suppose it would make more sense if I said "I wonder what the reaction would be if a crowd of Democrats applauded when a Democrat governor of a state where abortion was legal said how many procedures had been performed in her state." By the way: I'M NOT GOING TO BE IGNORED DAN.

I think that the Speaker of the House cum Minority Leader showing her approval of what the president (who is a member of her own party) has to say is a *little* different than a crowd applauding the death of 234 people. But that's just me.

I just wonder what the reaction would be if a crowd of pro-choice advocates applauded when a doctor that performs abortions said how many proceedures she had performed.

Nope, lots of F trains are the shiny blue well-lit cars. If this is the F, it's just one more reason for me to hate it. Ick, you guys, I'm worried about the F.

January 14, 2011 on Top Chef: All-Stars S01E06: We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Shark Bag
I am probably an Angelo apologist even on my worst days (huh?) but I am definitely with him on this, my love for his ROM aside. I am terrified - TERRIFIED - of swimming where I can't see my feet because I am sure that a shark or some other water-dwelling predator (alligator, snake, large mouth bass) is going to eat my toes and the rest of me. I don't care if it's a totally landlocked lake in the Midwest where I am much more likely to catch chlamydia than I am to encounter anything with a combination of scales and teeth (I'm not going to name names, Lake of the Ozarks), you will not catch me swimming there evah. Nope, no way no how.

Seriously. I signed in on my work computer which is Amish and slow just to upvote this. I too am tired of all this shade of purple.

I did the same thing (although mine was more of a prolonged "UGHHHHH" and pulling my t-shirt over my face so I didn't have to see it) and my mom's reaction was the same.

December 22, 2010 on The Videogum Pets Of 2010 Photo/Video Round-Up
I get what you're all saying, and I agree in theory. I'm just saying, when you're a parent (which I am NOT), it would be horrifying to be judged on the job you're doing on your kid based on 47 seconds of footage taken on Christmas morning. Which is a stressful time and might cause even the best parent to have a momentary lapse of judgment and scream "WELL FINE HEIDI, IF YOU CAN'T BEHAVE, JUST HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS GOD DAMMIT!" from the top of the stairs when her youngest daughter was fighting with her brother instead of coming to dinner. I'm just saying. That kind of stuff COULD happen, even to the best mom in the WORLD.

I'd agree that you're probably taking the not-even-a-minute-long-video too seriously but then again, I've made 3 comments on it now, so who am I to judge. For the record, I don't have kids, but I do know that it's really difficult to raise them and parenting involves all kinds of challenges, so judging what kind of parents these folks are based on 47 seconds of their child's life is probably REALLY unfair.

EXACTLY - You're TWENTY ONE. He's THREE. I think comparing the way an adult comports herself to the way a TODDLER does is a bit unfair, isn't it? Downvote away, and I swear I'm not trying to get into the whole Sanctimony-gum-gate again, but come on, people. RELAX.
