    “Your Orinthology is spot on, but your political correctness leaves something to be desired”.

    Yet more historical evidence that once upon a time in America the people were more relaxed and didn’t have to crap their pants silly trying to remember what the latest term is to be P.C.

    I wonder what would happen if you posted the picture where Batman & Robin and Superman are at an anti-nazi/Japanese booth selling war bonds to the oncoming public. It’s the caption that gets me rolling every time

    RitoruBushi, wait til you see that the midget in question is a Japanese agent named — and no, I am not making this up — “Squat-So”.

    I bet he could even recognize a gorilla by its shadow!

    “Well, of course I knew it was a condor carrying a midget– I just couldn’t tell whether it was South American or not.”

  7. “…and it’s carrying the midget.” LOL “…and wearing flannel trousers and a beanie and singing ‘I’m a super duper pooper.'”

  8. Oh, and if you squint really hard, the moon looks like a Japanese face with angry, furry eyebrows and little squinty slant eyes. Now that’s PC.

    When I saw this, I couldn’t help thinking of “The Gorge of Eternal Peril” bit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

    What is the maximum velocity of a South American condor?

    Bolivian or Colombian?

    I don’t know–Waaaaaah!

    Ah, so that’s where they come from.

    “Mommy, mommy. Did the South American condor bring us a new baby midget?”
