I was getting pretty fed-up during the late Calif. recall with all the Gary Coleman coverage, all of which seemed to consist of short jokes. I expected it of Comedy Central (though, really, one expects The Daily Show to eschew the obvious jokes), but even The NY Times had an extensive interview with him: after Coleman complained about all the short jokes, the reporter went on to talk about his clothes from the childrens’ shop and how his cute little feet didn’t reach the floor from his chair. Now there’s Knee-High P.I., with the admittedly funny tagline, “Sometimes the best dick is a small one.”
I’m not a dwarf or a midget, and I don’t even know any dwarves or midgets, but jeez, I feel sorry for them! I mean, it’s not something you can hide. I’m not going to claim they’re the “last group it’s permissable to laugh at,” because it’s still open season on fat people and the transgendered, too.
Jesus–can you imagine being a fat, transgendered midget? I’d kill myself as soon as I was old enough to get the pills.
