Phil Wasn't The First

Rather than getting all pompous and righteous about the Phil Robertson flap, I'd rather laugh at the whole thing, starting with a couple of jokes from a recent Mark Steyn article.
Bob Hope, touring the world in the year or so after the passage of the 1975 Consenting Adult Sex Bill:
“I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.”
Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra kept this one in the act for a quarter-century. On stage, Dino used to have a bit of business where he’d refill his tumbler and ask Frank, “How do you make a fruit cordial?” And Sinatra would respond, “I dunno. How do you make a fruit cordial?” And Dean would say, “Be nice to him.”
Can you imagine the brouhaha that would ensue today if some entertainer told those jokes?

Speaking of Phil Robertson and homosexuals...

Now to offend other special interest groups:
There was a four car accident yesterday in Mexico - 87 died.

School is like a boner. It’s long and hard… unless you’re Asian.

Make the little things count. Teach midgets math.

If women ruled the world there would be no wars. Just a bunch of jealous countries not talking to each other.
A dyslexic walks into a bra...

An Irishman walks out of a bar...
Did I leave anyone out...?

Let me fix that oversight. Wouldn't want the Italians to get offended by being left out.

Q. What do you get when you cross an Italian and a Pollack?

A. A guy who makes you an offer you can t understand.

Figured I'd throw in my ethnic group (Polish) while I'm at it...
