If you can't enjoy it, you have a lack of humor

A fantastic episode. It's great when we can laugh at the stereotypes of ourselves and others. Just as there is a difference between a white and red lie, there is also a difference in laughing at stereotype and bigotry. The Irish love their booze, the italians are metrosexual or dumb mobsters, the french are pompus, the brits have bad teeth, african americans must always be cool, these are silly stereotypes. When done with a wink and a nod it is fantastic. I am reminded of the Family Guy episode where a young woman with down syndrome played a like-part and people were offended. The young woman was annoyed so many were offended on her behalf when she found the episode funny and not at all offensive (because again, it was done in an absurd mediaum and with a a wink and a nod). Conclusion: Again, a great episode. We should lighten up.

Of course the Wall isn't that low, and of course Homer isn't a good role model...that's the point, it's supposed to be absurd! That's why it hilarious!!!
