Funny, though I doubt whether Austin will think so. :)

I am actually curious to first learn 1) if Suxy found this funny and 2) why is it funny?
And since Foxy posted first, Foxy, why did you find this funny?
Simple question to both of you. What was it about this sketch that you found amusing?

Deconstructing humour can be challenging. I hope you will give it a shot.

#2. Uppity nigger with colossal chip on shoulder loses his rag with white honky boss man over appropriation issue. It made me smile. There. That's the best I can do Austin.

Tbh Austin. I don't 'do' humour deconstruction. If something amuses me, I laugh. It really is that straightforward. I don't pause and look around timidly to determine whether I might be about to commit some terrifying politically incorrect faux pas with my impending chuckle.

Now it's your turn. As you say, deconstructing humour can be challenging, but I am certain this is a challenge you will rise to in explaining why this video doesn't tickle your funny bone.

So in 5,000 words or less, go for it. :)

#3 ‘5000 words or less’??!??! That’s just mean.

I doubt Austin will even bother replying as he can’t work under these conditions...

It's funny because Chappelle is mocking the bad aspects of US black culture, rather than just taking the easy route for a black comic, which is to mock aspects of various white cultures.

I think this is funny. Addressing issues like stereotypes, attitudes and several other things in an easy manner. And not everything needs to be a serious debate all the time. Loosen up people, high five ;) And yes, Austin can write short stories too...

Funny as hell, combination of white corporate America, and black chip on shoulder....not sure which is worse.
