    Wow, I didn't realize I was a racist dirtbag! Having re-read my naughty post I think some people are confusing ethnic stereotyping with sexual inuendo. Trust me, my post had exactly ZERO to do with skin color. Like it or not racism exists. One of the best ways to expose it for the sickness it is, - is thru humor. My apologies for my poor attempt at doing so.

    That said, some of you might try to lighten up a bit.

    For whatever it’s worth Silverfly, I picked up on it. You know when people are hypersensitive and defensive over homosexuality.....................? ;)

    I looked back at my pictures and most of the time I'm wearing a T-shirt so I guess I'm not colared, but when it rains I wish I was.

    For me, it was the typical humor that was heard in the 1970s when racism was "louder" in our society. I can understand if you were trying to make a joke about stepping back in time by posting on this thread, but you needed to understand that your post wasn't going to be taken that way by everybody. Sure, some took it that way, but for me I didn't and if one other person felt the same way then that is one too many. Some of us are more sensitive too some issues than others. If I am a wound too tight, so be it.

    SilverFly, after your reply I looked up Colonel Angus and it is hilarious. I still disagree with your content, but whatever that's my opinion.

    I didn't know voicing my opinions meant I was "hypersensitive". Next time I'll add some racial content and sexual innuendos to lighten things up.

    Stupid topic that needs a bit of clarification. A mix of equally stupid responses from some, but some good humor from others. Had a few calls to get it taken down. It probably should be but I'll let it run for now. Hopefully it'll fade soon, as it should.

    Yeah, had I perceived a post that way, I would have been equally outraged and not nearly so nice.

    OK people, move along, nothing to see here.

    Wow, this is some of the best entertainment I have witnessed on here. SilverFly: That is one of the funniest SNL skits EVER! Those of you who took offense need to laugh a little more often, especially at yourselves. Yes you Worm, 'cause I am laughing real hard over your post. Oh man, I need to fish!!
