Re: do you care

Yes but very few would remember the joke, but everyone remembers the slap, The joke in fact demonstrates the limits of language. I mean there are some people who I know who would see the funny side if it were applied to them, but to try it when you do not know the couple would seem to be a quick way to get off their Christmas list.

What Will Smith did isn't important. The real importance of the entire episode is that it reflects how our culture has declined. First, a comedian even believing such jokes are appropriate in mainstream culture shows its decline. Will Smith's reaction shows the decline in another way. Neither the joke nor the response would be acceptable in a healthy culture.

Today on the National news the big story was that Wil Smith apologized to Chris Rock for slapping him during the Oscars a few months ago. My first thought was who cares. Anyone else think the same way or is it just me?
