Actress Julianne Hough caused an uproar last year when she went to a Halloween party in blackface. She was actually dressed as a character from the Netflix show "Orange is the New Black", but that brought her no reprieve. Robert Downey Junior donned blackface for his character in the movie 'Tropic Thunder' and no one cared. No one cared when Billy Crystal routinely donned blackface during his SNL days when he parodied Sammy Davis Junior. Shawn and Marlon Wayans wore whiteface for their stunningly terrible movie "White Chicks". Well now, Nick Cannon, whipped husband of Mariah Carey, has a new album coming out called "White People Party Music", and to promote it, he's created a character named Connor Smallnut... which is just Nick in whiteface. As you might imagine, some people have a problem with this. And then there's former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. It's no secret that he's no fan of our current President... just part of the typical partisan whining sh*t, but in a diatribe last night about Obama's mishandling of Afghanistan, Rummy stated that "a trained ape" could have done a better job. He had no racial intent, but you know it unfolded anyway. It's easy to offend people these days. Hell, people, as best I can tell, LOVE to be offended. It's the new thing. Anyway, we're sure you've offended someone, but we're wondering if you meant to. LAST TIME YOU OFFENDED SOMEONE, WAS IT INTENTIONAL OR NOT?
Works in pest control; a client asked how he managed to situate himself in a certain part of the house. He responded with, "because I'm skinny." The homeowner was fat and took it wrong.

Asked a dude with one leg what his handicap was... he was talking about golf
Told a Jewish joke to a woman who'd just married a Jewish guy
Waiting for a car to back out of a parking space. Accidentally hit his horn, the other driver thought he was being a d*ck and things got wee bit dicey
Bought a Chihuahua but hadn't registered the dog yet, so he made the joke that the dog was an illegal alien... the Hispanic woman he was talking to didn't think it was funny
A woman asked if he would get something for him; he said, "you have legs". She didn't. She leg. Just one.
Some old dude wanted to fight him because his ears are gauged
SIT AND SPIN
As we do every Tuesday, we invited Jolene in for another episode of Sit and Spin. On today's episode we covered the seven surprising musicians who sang in commercials. I was particularly surprised by Paul Stanley, but that's just me. Here's a link:
OK bitches, sh*t to do so I'm outtie.
Until tomorrow, snuff the rooster and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
