I don't know I guess it takes more to insult me nowdays.
I'm generally not - but when respect for others is sacrificed to grab attention...... well, then I guess I am.
However I did find the Dumb and Dumber outtake to be funny. Thanx Nic.
IMHO there's nothing more stupid than taking offense where none was intended, especially if it takes place before taking in all the facts and the context
I took it in context [if you refer to my post]. The context was the header for the thread, which is insulting to this American. And if it had been addressed to Brits or Irishmen or blacks or spaniards, I would have been offended and embarrassed for them too. Maybe not to all Americans, but to this one it was insulting to begin with. No less in bad-taste than if I had titled one 'Stupid [name your race or nationality of choice here].' How is that out of context? Now, a disclaimer would have offset that, and attracted just as much [more favorable] attention. And would have shown class.
Studid Americans [just a joke guys, take a look].
