They're just Will-Libs. Racist was not a *great* word for that blank line, but, heck it's an adjective, and an adjective it had to be. Done! Next?

Well, if you're commenting on noses, usually that's what it means.

One of my grandfathers got blackballed from a country club, because they thought he might be Jewish (amusing, since he was Scottish), due to his nose.

Hey, I know, let's have a SLOG post about dwarf tossing ... (sounds like your speed)

Does everyone in the office laugh extra hard whenever the Publisher tells a joke?

@1/5: What are you on about? Come back when you've learned to appreciate simple booger jokes, or don't come back at all!

Will in Seattle thinks a booger joke is an anti semite joke? not shocked!

It's a size reference ...

Kind of like the forced laughter at a Miss America pageant over USAmericans.

Oh, for chrissake, keep going, Will, keep going.

Please, Will, do tell us more about your Scottish grandfather and his supposedly Jewish-looking nose. I'm waiting.

I'd like to hear more on the Bonny Size of Laughter.

@15 - no, that was the whole story. Now go pick your dainty nose and laugh at how America is not racist, and Obama has 70 percent of the vote ...

Which race is the one that has dainty noses, Will?

Posted by Lloyd Clydesdale | August 22, 2008 3:49 PM

The Wee People. Their noses are very dainty. Impossible to pick except with special tiny spoons, made of quicksilver.

Will's ancestor's noses can be easily removed and put back on again, as he is descended from Mr. Potato Head.

Will, are you really retarded or do you pretend to be in many a failed attempt to be funny?
