At least one way of measuring the freedom of any society is the amount of comedy that is permitted, and clearly a healthy society permits more satirical comment than a repressive, so that if comedy is to function in some way as a safety release then it must obviously deal with these taboo areas. This is part of the responsibility we accord our licensed jesters, that nothing be excused the searching light of comedy. If anything can survive the probe of humour it is clearly of value, and conversely all groups who claim immunity from laughter are claiming special privileges which should not be granted.

Know any groups at which the PC police keep you from laughing? Yeah, me too. Makes you wonder what they're trying to get away with. With this observation in mind, it's easy to see why leftist of all stripes (and especially you folks at the SPLC) have no sense of humor and are just no fun at all.

Live well . . . and laugh.
