Re: Dairy Challenge.
I mean, didn't anyone ever tell you folks that you are not supposed to play with your food?! For God's sake, there are children starving in Niger and you people are going around spilling milk, spewing milk, dribbling milk, splashing and trashing milk. How do you think an emaciated child in the Ivory Coast feels when he boots up his laptop and sees these images of Western gluttony, degradation and waste? And no doubt the Americans are the major offenders. They refuse to share their wealth with the third world, then go and spit milk right in the eyes of those less fortunate. Wise up before it is too late. Cows of the world are already beginning to align with emerging nations. Come the day when they decide to shut off your milk, you won't be able to bomb them into submission. And don't think that you will be able to drill for milk in the ANWR. All they have up there are Frosties and Smoothies.

Come to your senses. Go take a picture of a nude! [/humor off]

This was totally tongue in cheek. It has been amazing to see where this thread led to. You never know where the ripples in the water might lead.

This explains the Jerry Springer show.

I read his post and didn't see anywhere where he actually made fun of starved children. Chill dude. Besides it is in the rant forum. You can turn rants off!

frumoaznicul,
I'm sorry if you were offended by this post. I think that what happened here is that the humor from the english didn't translate well to your native language. I feel just as you do. The post was meant to be totally sarcastic.
Additionally, I'm sure that since you are from Romania, you have seen things in your life that most of us can't imagine. I understand how you misinterpreted my sentiment.

It's like this. At first it whasn't clear for me if this is a joke or it's serious. If it was to be serious I would of told you you are overreacting. But then you said it's a joke, and I really don't feel starved children in Nigeria and in the 3'rd world can be placed in jokes just like that.

Also blacks, chinese, americans, mexicans, etc. shouldn't be placed in jokes so then we have no jokes and the world becomes a more miserable place.

SINGING sometimes I park in handicap spaces, while handicap people make handicaped faces

Quite obviously frumoaznicul can stick up for himself, but, as the originator of this post, I want to put in a word for him too. Given the recent history of his country (Romania) I totally understand how he might feel very visceral about flip references to tragedy. I take his point -
this discussion represents differences in culture and experience.
