That's what made me post it as well. I just really hate how stupid Reddit is, it's everything wrong with the left I'm starting to realize.
The meme that everyone got triggered by the WORDS instead of seeing the humor in it.
I'm not sure if I'm juvenile/still racist/or just have a fucking sense of humor. My wife and I were dying over this post and of course Reddit melted down. Reddit, THEY, were fighting over the usage of they. Not the hard R, but pronouns are the catchall for such a small vocal minority. It's a common fucking phrase when referring to someone you don't know. "Pat just traveled from Thailand." Did THEY have a good time?
"Old English had a single third-person pronoun hē, which had both singular and plural forms, and they wasn't among them. In or about the start of the 13th century, they was imported from a Scandinavian source (Old Norse þeir, Old Danish, Old Swedish þer, þair), where it was a masculine plural demonstrative pronoun. It comes from Proto-Germanic *thai, nominative plural pronoun, from PIE *to-, demonstrative pronoun."
Grapes of Wraith
“Carloads of oranges dumped on the ground. The people come for miles to take the fruit, but this could not be. How would they buy oranges if they could drive out and pick them up? And men with hoses squirt kerosene on the oranges… A million people hungry, needing the fSruit – and kerosene sprayed over the golden mountains.
And the smell of rot fills the country.
Burn coffee for fuel in the ships… Dump potatoes in the rivers and place guards along the banks to keep the hungry people from fishing them out [with nets]. Slaughter the pigs and bury them…
And children dying of pellagra must die because a profit cannot be taken from an orange. And coroners must fill in the certificates – died of malnutrition – because the food must be forced to rot.”
