Hmmm, maybe because it's not the first time you've said stuff like that about TN and other southern states...and I really REALLY don't think you are joking....I think you really believe that, but whatev.

You're not alone...I found the comment to be in poor taste as well...

But I've come to not expect anything solid from him anyway...

Sad,really...he's a smart guy...but he obviously finds its funny to take pot shots at every social stereotype he can come up with...

Sometimes its funny....most of the time, I graze over his comments, because I find little of value...again..kind of sad..

Yeah, I LIVE in Mississippi, and consider this, do you think the stereotype exists because NO ONE got married too young or married a relative in those states? Nope. A stereotype exists specifically BECAUSE it has occured.

And yes, they DO get married to young here in Mississippi.

So what other stereotypes are you okay with, do you laugh about stereotypes about gays, blacks, illegals, mexicans... those all exist because they have occurred as well. Oops, almost forgot the one about the violent muslims. Here's a funny one for ya, how about the stereotype about lazy government employees, or how about the one about drunk natives, or the one about male nurses being gay and effeminate.

"So what other stereotypes are you okay with, do you laugh about stereotypes about gays, blacks, illegals, mexicans... those all exist because they have occurred as well."

Sorry, where did I say I was okay with them? I said they ONLY exist because at SOME point, there was an element of truth to them. I mean you don't hear BLONDE jokes about them being SMART. What not? Because there was never a time when there was an element of truth.

"Here's a funny one for ya, how about the stereotype about lazy government employees, or how about the one about drunk natives, or the one about male nurses being gay and effeminate."

Again, each had an element of truth to it. Humor is only "funny" when it comes with an element of truth.

Then your comment to the posters who criticized spinner's stereotype pot shots was... agreement with them?

"Again, each had an element of truth to it. Humor is only "funny" when it comes with an element of truth. "
So was spinner's funny, did you take it as a joke?

Stereotypes about women with multiple kids by multiple baby daddies must just have you in stitches then.
