Woke like a tree full of bees

Two bumperstickers I saw recently:




Do with it what you will.

Happy first day of school for some of you . . .

yeah. Thank you kanye, for furthering the stereotype that african americans are ignorant. thank you so much for speaking for your fellow african americans that are sitting at home feeling sorry for themselves, those who aren't aware of the true state of things. Thank you for reenforcing the easy way out. Thank you for reenforcing that non productive cop-out attitude. Most of all, thank you for making Mike Myers feel very awkward. way to represent, dog.

Hmm...
"thank you so much for speaking for your fellow african americans that are sitting at home feeling sorry for themselves"

And it was Kanye West who was furthering stereotypes?

yes. because i explicitly said that all african americans are like that.... dont put words in my mouth. i simply meant that he was speaking for those who DO sit and feel sorry for themselves. a conservative cant speak about another race without being accused of being racist. annoying.

See, Tom -- the English teacher in me kicks in: In your first post, you used sarcasm in the first sentence ("Thank you Kanye") and your last sentence ("Way to represent dog").

But we are apparently supposed to take your second sentence literally, contrary to all syntactical or contextual sense. So I was not putting words in your mouth -- I was reading what you wrote.

I apologize for misreading your intentions, though.

No prob. It's part of the fun of nonverbal communication. By the way, I like your occupation (scarf) in your profile. Well met.
