HBD Humor: Thinking about the Imus fiasco, I'm upset that a guy could lose his job for a joke, albeit an unfunny and gratuitous one. Over the years, all this race hysteria has made a contrarian like me want to speak louder when others get shut up. So I decided this evening to fight back with what I call HBD Humor. Anytime I hear that about someone getting punished for a joke, I'm going to make up another. Since Imus' joke was about black women, so is my first one:

Question: What's the difference between a black chick's ass and a Union Pacific caboose?

Answer: I mentioned the black chick's ass first.

Gah. At least you could pick out a funny joke.

The sort of joke that you need is one that comes at the expense of the sanctimonious status-seekers who enabled the firing of Imus - a ripe target.

Q: How many sanctimonious status-seekers does it take to fire a shock-jock?

A: That's not funny!

Mr. Guhname, I've got plenty more, but you'd probably delete the post.

Sadly, none of the jokes are remotely funny.

Thar's what's known as Freakonomics humor.

Oh, we can go further.

Did you hear about the Jewish guy who got an erection, walked into a wall, and broke his nose?

Why did the Hebrews wander in the desert for 40 years? Someone dropped a quarter.

What's the difference between a black man and an extra large cheese pizza from Dominos?

The pizza can feed a family of five!

(Y'all may have heard that one before, but it bears repeating)

Hey, I said I'd write a joke. I didn't say I'd write a funny one. It's not like a get paid to do this, and for good reason.

Yeah, Imus got hired to say shocking things.

And then got fired for doing his job.
