Racist

Stuck in Sacramento last night, my co-worker and I decided to go to The Punchline. A comedy club located on the upper level of a strip mall. The only thing to note really is that the headliner told a few jokes. I think I might have seen him on TV somewhere doing the same jokes, because I remember hearing almost exactly the same lines. I don't recall when, where or who though. Anyway, the noteworthy part of this set of jokes went something like this:

I got harassed by airport security. blah blah blah. I'm irish. Why hassle an irishman? Last time I checked, most of these terrorists came from the middle east. While I'm getting anally explored, Achmed is bouncing into the plane with a bomb. I don't call it racial profiling. I call it "good police work."

It wasn't funny. And I was offended. No matter how funny his jokes were after that, I couldn't find them humorous. Ruined my night.

Yeah, I may be a bit uptight and PC on that one, but for some reason it feels personal to me.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…
