Blondes, and any blonde character for that matter, deserve any blonde jokes directed at them.

Jews, and any Jewish character for that matter, deserve any Jew jokes directed at them.

Blacks, and any black character for that matter, deserve any black joke directed at them.

How far do you want to take this?

We can't make fat or blonde jokes anymore? This world is getting lamer.

Can we at least still make jokes about old people?

I hope so.

Old is something that happens to all people, barring catastrophic illness or accident.

Not to Pippi Longstocking or Peter Pan. They mock us without fear.

Which is why we should also be making fun of young people. And Nazis. And people that give their babies firearms.

And that kid that had a lightsaber battle with himself that got posted on YouTube. And people that bring 20 items into the 10 items or less line. And fat people.

And blondes.

Mine usually involve the Punisher and Garth Ennis.
I agree and some of the worst offenders are people who are intelligent and able to figure out other's bullshit.

Regarding Bendis, it's hard for me to take criticism of him serious due to how he became famous and successful. He started off doing crime stories and then became the writer of Daredevil. After that, Avengers: Disassembled where he killed off three promenient Avengers with the culprit being another. Then, the killer became more powerful and went crazy which lead into the next major event that Bendis wrote himself. I'm not saying he's a great writer who should never be criticized but what I am saying is that there will always be people who will hate him for stuff he did in comics and it will have nothing to do with the quality of his work.

New Avengers is a strong series as well though at the moment not Brian's strongest work.

Gail's wonder woman has been very hit or miss but has picked up lately.

These are all opinions and not facts mind you. 8)


Why do you always call creators by their first names? Do you know them? Serious question.

Anyway, I liked Siege. It set things up nicely.

Only problem I had was not that Thor was taken out, but by who. But that is just a minor gripe. Good issue.

Solid 8.

Obesity is not an ethnicity, its an unhealthy lifestyle. I'll take it as far as reason goes. It's your decision if you want to be reasonable or not.

I agree. While most people are never going to be as skinny as Hollywood people are, there's no excuse for not excerising and eating properly.
