Light and fluffy

Most of the humour going around on this subject is boorish and heavy with hatred. Most of it is essentially racist and prejudiced and full of brutality. I find most of it rather sickening because there has never been anything funny about kicking people when they're down. Even hated people.
But you elevate the subject to a point where the humour itself is actually appealling and the laughter comes from more than a cultural reflex to scorn and mock our enemies. Ultimately of course it isn't 'them' we are laughing at, but our own foibles set in this most absurd of realities.
A very healthy entry. Well written. Well executed. Excellent.
