Quite frankly, no, I don't find it particularly funny. Racist and
demeaning to native culture comes immediately to mind. And I don't think
it was up to Sick Puppy's previous standards of humor.
I don't intend this to be a personal rebuke to Joerg, however, but just
wish to make the statement that humor based on racial or ethnic
stereotyping really doesn't belong on a professional discussion list.
Techno-culture, of course, is fair game. :-)
