A Bit of Humor in Real Life

A dear friend sent me this entertaining commercial for a furniture store in North Carolina.

The Red House commercial began life as a simple, local production. Through the magic of the internet, it has become a global sensation (related article). It's a blessing to have friends who appreciate and share your sense of humor especially when they cheer you up from foreign soil. She's been in Ireland with Emerging Artists Theatre because a couple of EAT plays were in The Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival. I'm proud and excited for them and a little bit green with envy. It's only appropriate to be green. It's Ireland, after all.

Ha ha ha...evidently things have changed in N.C. The last time I was in North Carolina, I was passing through on the interstate (20 years or so ago). When I hit the NC state line the first billboard I saw announced, "This is Klan Kountry", with a hooded Klansman on a rearing stead. I decided to drive on through...and I am white.

Even crackers and negroes can get along.

Now that you mention it, Comrade, that's the exact pedigree of my dad's side of the family. Big Daddy split the property evenly between the white side and the black side (which he'd fathered), but the whites got the mineral rights all in the middle of NoFuckingWhere, East Texas.
