Is 65 years enough time?
I hope so, because I've got a joke for today and if 65 years is NOT enough time for us to deal with a tragic even before we joke about it, then this blog just might become a hotbed of controversy and I might finally start to receive the 15 Minutes of Fame that Andy Warhol promised me when I blew him in the mid-80's.
Perhaps some angry citizens will post a comment on my blog demanding that I apologize for my poor judgement in making a joke out of a possibly hurtful subject. There's a lot of apologizing going on these days. Remember when Americans had a sense of humor? Remember when we there were just three television channels? Remember when Joey Lawrence had hair... you know, pre-steroids... "Woah!"
Anyway, here's the joke that I have to tell on this day of infamy:
"I have a friend who is half Black and half Japanese.
Oh come on, that's some funny stuff right there. And I know from funny!
For you zygotes born during or after the Reagan Administration, Dinah Shore was a great singer with a terrific talk show... this was long before her name become synonymous with lesbian golf tournaments.
