Removed this:

Hoosiers
  • (What Indiana residents call themselves) are made fun of all the time in 13. The Only Sane Man is actually from New York City.

If someone can find a place to insert, please fee free to do so. Also, that link looks orphaned.

Just gotta throw this out there but from the main Acceptable Targets page:

"Political correctness is usually stringently observed on television; crossing the wrong (i.e. powerful or popular) minority group can result in anything up to cancellation. But while a show will be very cautious not to offend powerful and/or popular groups: (non-effeminate) homosexuals, blacks, Jews and the (non-mentally) disabled, there are some groups which have no such standards of protection: namely the powerless and/or un-popularó ironically, the groups to whom political correctness should most reasonably apply. "

From this page:

"The Wealthy"

Blacks and gay people are politically powerful and popular, but rich people aren't? Even allowing for "popular" carrying a whooooole lot of water here, then there's that bit at the end about these being the groups "to whom political correctness should most reasonably apply," which pitches the entire thing into absurdism.
