It's still weird to me that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog isn't 100% associated with Conan. Did NBC win him in the divorce? Anyway here he is skewering a bunch of college kids who are WAY too politically correct.
I'm not one of those people that decries political correctness as if it were an attack my very soul but I do think it can go overboard sometimes. For instance, over the last few years I've tried to break the habit of calling things I don't like gay or retarded. I totally get how language like that is hurtful and what's the point really? I can use plenty of other words. Where I draw the line is when you're asked to refrain from language that accurately describes someone or something.
Does that make any sense? It feels like some of these language crusaders have become so afraid of possible conflict that they're almost making the situation worse. Conflict can be a good thing, often times conflict is the only way a solid resolution can be found. Don't ban the word poor, ban the people that think someone isn't worth their time because they're poor.
Whatever, I'm just hear for the poop jokes.
