    I am sorry if you believe it to be a person attack. However, do you want a comedian like Tracy Morgan to tell knock knock jokes? Would you propose we write about a list of things he is allowed to try out when he makes jokes?

    Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

    I bet this is a publicity stunt. No one that high profile makes the same stupid mistake twice by accident.

    Well... I suppose I don't know for sure. Okay, he is either incredibly smart, or incredibly stupid. Now I've covered the bases.

    I'm sorry, but this is ****ing stupid. Who cares? If you are offended by what he says, don't watch his comedy. We shouldn't be trying to censor and essentially castrate comedy because some people are offended by what is said. Some find offensive comedy to be hilarious, myself included. People all have different senses of humor. When we start getting into the realm of censoring people, it skirts dangerously close to violating their rights to free speech. People find different things offensive, and many who get offended forget that all important difference between satire and seriousness.

    Not only that, but there are tons of comedians who make fun of mentally disabled people. Tons. The only reason this group is going after Tracy Morgan is because he's on a national tv show and they saw how much traction the previous group got when they were offended over his previous standup. I'm sorry, but who gives a ****? If you don't like it, don't watch it. Not everyone is as sensitive as you are, and they are able to laugh about it. It's really as simple as that.

    Kali, he's using it for shock effect. It was beyond stupid, but it's also not any funny the way he used it.

    To you and some others it may not have been funny. I'm willing to bet some did find it funny.

    People also laugh at Larry the Cable Guy and Gallagher. I don't mind when people use the word 'retard'. I grew up with people who were, I work with families with children who have mental retardation, but I don't get offended by it. It's just especially bad comedy. He used it cheaply to get headlines. Maybe you should stop being so sensitive about your taste in humor.

    Exactly. To each their own. Everyone has a different sense of humor. While I don't find either of those comedians funny, I realize that others do.

    The joke wasn't funny.

    What was funny was that, apparantly, people take it seriously enough to get all offended.

    thats ****ing HILARIOUS! Kali made my day!

    Tracy Morgan is comedian and he under a microscope now because he went after Gays, he can't help but screw up.

    After all his mental sagacity is in question, and he's clearly slow on the uptake.

    I wouldn't pay a dime to see most of today's comedians because they are mostly really stupid not funny and ar nasty and classless.

    But Gallagher WAS funny. I loved watching "sledge-o-matic". Great satire.
