There seems to be a lot of Sikh attacks lately, confusing them for Muslims. It's hilarious and awful.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I know you don't mean to come across that way but hilarious just does not apply here.

Have we discussed the survey which showed that 30% of Republicans want us to bomb Agrabah, the land from "Aladdin?"

Oh, good. I'm glad this place didn't fall apart while I was gone for a week. I was gone for a week, you know.

Did we also talk about the fact that 19% of Democrats also wanted to bomb Agrabah?

And 36% oppose bombing it, which could be interpreted that they, too, believe it a real place. Neither chunk of voters especially comes out smelling like unicorn farts in all that.

Yeah, the better interpretation of this survey is "a terrifying number of people are really, really ignorant; an even more terrifying subset are belligerently so."

I just meant that sometimes things are so bad, they become comical. With of course some emotional and personal detachment.
