It needs more funny, and less make-me-angry.
Di: Ahhmmm, this is a murder scene.
: I though you were doing a CSI: Miami
riff. You know, with the pun. And the glasses.
: That still wouldnít make it okay.
Did somebody just boo me because I implied Heath Ledger

You've gone entirely too far! Comedy is comedy, but this, this is... Monstrous!
Freedom does not mean license.
Once, in a break, I told him I'd thought of a funny line about someone but I was afraid it might be too sharp. He drummed on his desk with a long pencil and frowned: 'If you ever have the slightest doubt about a line don't
say it.' The best advice.
For every Asian and every human being
, we apologize
for that scene.
It's nice to know I went too far and there's a room full of people saying, 'Yes, you did.'
Wow. Thatís offensive and
unfunny. Itís like a female Jeff Dunham
While on television, A Town Called Mercy. It is easy to find fault with this story. This does not, however, make it any less worth doing. First and most simply is, of course, Susan, the trans mare
. This marks the second time Toby Whithouse has completely fucked up trans representation (the first being his gobsmackingly transphobic bit of dialogue for Jack in Greeks Bearing Gifts
over on Torchwood
)...One might argue that the intent was good, although I think you run aground pretty quickly when you realize that thus far all trans representation on Doctor Who has been for the purpose of jokes
, which is actually pretty much the opposite of good intentions no matter how much you state it.
This is why a lot of people didn't like Andy Kaufman
— he was often way too committed
to the bit. Once people can't tell if it's a joke or serious, then they have to ponder whether they're actually about to get murdered, and I can assure you, if you've never feared for your own life before, it's barely chuckleworthy.
I had read before about Scott Adams
í various comments that had got him in hot water over the past few years and had people calling him a misogynist... Itís all sort of the Orson Scott Card
school of saying something horrible, and then going, What? Why are people being mean to me? Adams explains that people have low reading comprehension
and just donít understand what it was that he said. Except, he said exactly what it is that people think he said, they just donít appreciate what a hilarious genius he is
At the 2014 Hall of Fame induction, Jake
spoke about finally conquering decades of addiction...In retrospect, youíre probably thinking, there would have been only one thing worse than having his 'gimmick' be that of a new, sober man only for him to relapse into addiction in real life, and that would have been for the WWF to book him into an angle ridiculing him for his struggles.
Which brings me to todayís induction...Lawler
also connected Jake The Snake to Tupac Shakur
, saying the rapper had even more 'shots' in him than Jake Roberts. Really, the fact that Tupac would die a few days later from those same gunshot wounds couldnít make this angle any more tasteless than it already was.
Apparently, he was turned into gatorbags. Isn't. That. Hilarious? No. No it's not. It's sick and wrong, you fucking morons.
