I Declare This One Not Racist

Though I admit it's pretty suspicious without the context. Al Sharpton insists that the Monkey = Obama.

Grasping at straws, Al. New York was abuzz with the weird tabloid story of a real monkey that had run amok in the city and which had to be put down by cops. Clearly, this is that monkey. In fact, given the context, even though I disagree with the premise (crazy monkey = congressional Democrats) the joke is funny.

I have spoken.

I agree with you about the racism angle... but I still don't get why it's funny.

Matter of taste, I guess. By the way, my beef with the cartoonist is that he's too heavily influenced by Sergio Aragones of Mad Magazine. Uno Sergio is enough!

LOL. You know, I think you may be right on that one!
