humorless?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 09, 2008

My guess is that Slovakian broadcast regulators. are probably "not the best experts" on discerning what constitutes humor. But let the record show that Uncle Di does not live or work in that country-- where, apparently, Vatican advice on driving is taken with the same seriousness as defined dogma.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Parody is dangerous since it is intended to offend, And when it succeeds . . .it is regarded as dangerous. Where is Fr. Brown now that we need him?

    All we need in the U.S. is to have Congress re-impose the so-called "fairness doctrine" on broadcasters, and this kind of nonsense will once again visit our shores.

    I regard myself as a Catholic, too, or at least as somebody who tries to be one, but I thought the wisecrack was funny. And true. And it won't keep me away from Communion.
