Just a thought.
Potato tomato

Comedy works because it is ahead of the curve. They push the envelope, talk about taboo topics in a way that gets them out in the open and allows people to address things they are thinking but uncomfortable verbalizing in public. To try and put it into a box, worry about someones "feels" ruins it. It is like flag football. It represents football, follows the same basic rules and concepts but is clearly a shell of the original.

Sure there is a place and an audience for G stand up but to try and sensor the entire art would be like to have told renaissance artists tgat nudes were offensive and no longer acceptable.

As I've said before - I like Sarah Silverman. Her humor is very adult, very politically incorrect, very nasty and very smart. I like it.

Using slurs is not included.

If you can't be funny without saying nigger, spic, kike or faggot, you're not very funny and need to find a new line of work.

However, in this instance, Silverman was using it to make a point that using it - even with the word 'love' - was offensive.
The biggest fault with the joke was that it wasn't funny.

I don't find Dave Chappelle funny - I don't find Eddie Murphy funny - I didn't find Don Rickles funny - I don't find ridiculing and demeaning and degrading people funny.

I'm just funny that way.
Call me funny that way!
