You have a point. I started wrapping all my ethnic jokes in LotR
references. This is because most people who take exception to them and
then lash out at you are pharasaical hypocrites who don't know their
shit. Someone who actually knows what he's talking about (i.e., not
them) will recognize the humor for what it is and have a good chuckle.
So when I say that Variags are lazy, hedonistic battle rappers, I don't
get in trouble:
Mor lam sampled into rap, and the only time I've ever heard 'represent'
(intransitive rapper 'represent') rhymed with 'elephant'...
