Sean Tejaratchi’s genius for absurdity (and absurd language) is goddamn fantastic. It always reminds me of Chris Onstad’s command of dialog at the peak of Achewood.

Long live Apple Cabin Foods.

To be fair, humorless people who lack self-awareness and act like caricatures are fun to laugh at. It’s not an indictment of “social justice,” it’s making fun of doofuses who happen to cloak themselves in its trappings while being insufferable.

What does the word social add to the phrase? At the risk of sounding like I stutter, isn’t justice just justice?

I think that social justice is a purpose-built term used by those who don’t like the idea of mocking “not being an asshole.”

Because it’s there.

Anything held too precious or serious to satirize is exactly what needs it.

Would you enjoy mocking Fred Rodgers? Mother Teresa? Gandhi?

Is the burden of putting up with people expending their energy trying to make things better for those less fortunate so difficult to tolerate?

(or it could be that strong ideas can tolerate some mockery and/or discussion of their validity…)
((Or… as others have said above, that it’s not so much mocking the drive to improve things for others as it is mocking insufferable a-holes who cloak their behavioral disorders in the trappings of “social justice” and would simply find some other way to be burdensome if they didn’t have that to hide behind))

If it’s a good joke, then yes. Enormously and unashamedly.

Did you know Elton John’s original draft of his tribute song for Princess Diana was first earmarked for Mother Teresa; it didn’t sell, but perhaps he made a mistake in calling it “Sandals In The Bin.”

I don’t know any Gandhi or Mr Rogers jokes.
