Isn't that pretty much how Beech Bend does it?

Now press a lot of stinky, sweaty human bodies together in a compact space, and that's about right.

I like the sound of that! ;)

I do too if it's the right kind of bodies, but when it's a lot of different kinds of bodies, both sexes, all ages, all nationalities, and all walks of life, it starts to not sound very appealing. lol

(Referring to the posts above the...last two.)

Thanks, guys. That's not offensive...or stereotypical. ;)

Heh. :)

It is kinda funny how Raptor Jo's "Jose" comment got flack, but the mullet thing is totally acceptable.

I'm allowed to make fun. I am ethnically Appalachian-American. ;)

Funny "ha ha" or funny "peculiar"?

Peculiar with a hint of ha-ha.

Guess I don't understand why one stereotype is offensive and the other isn't.

(for the record, I have no horse in the race - I think we're too sensitive to such things in general)

Stereotypes exist because there are people who fit them. I think it's worse to pretend they doesn't exist than to be able to laugh at it all.

Agreed.

Stereotyping one subset of a racial demographic and stereotyping the entire race or nationality are two very different cases. Don't pretend that you don't know the difference.

Not sure if you're referring to me or Gonch but as a member of a group that often gets stereotyped in many ways, mostly negative, believe me I'm well aware of the difference.

If my "mullets" comment is offensive please delete it.

I stereotype you as awesome, Moosh! :)

I see no difference between quipping that Knott's probably has a lot of employees named Jose and snickering at the idea that the folks in central Kentucky employ lots of mullets. They're both broad generalizations of a people. If anything the mullet comment is probably more derogatory in nature and intent.

With that said, I don't find either particularly offensive. But I certainly don't see how one is fine and the other isn't.

Inadvertantly insulting someone seems to be par for the course for me tonight. Somehow I said something to piss off my partner and I'm banished to sleep on the couch tonight, despite attempting an apology. Oh well...tomorrow he'll have calmed down. At least I have a TV to watch tonight :)

See...all the drama of being married without the ability to legally marry. Ain't life grand?

You can always sleep here, Moosh. :)
