Sorry, but not sorry!

My grandmother sometimes lamented that much of the entertainment, movies, music, cartoon characters she enjoyed were taken away/erased. I assume that must have happened during the civil rights movement. She always emphasized that it was utter nonsense and hysteria.

I'm afraid I can't remember specifics, but I know she had a "golliwog" doll that she thought was adorable. And she mentioned the Frito Bandito being taken away. That happened before I was born, but she didn't seem to realize that.

But I know how she feels now. She said nobody was offended at the time about these things. And yeah, I grew up with Apu and I never heard a peep about him being offensive. Not one article in any of the left-wing rags. Not one post on Usenet. Nobody had a problem with it until that one asshole made it a problem.
I'm sure she misses this program, it was my dad's favorite.

Makes you want to go back to the days when she had a crush on "Corey".

You just know they'll make a 'Morrissey is right wing now' joke that resets the status quo. Plus with Cumbertwat doing the voice, it'll be a posh Londoner rather than a working class Mancunian with no references to Salford in the episode at all.

I may actually hatestream this for you lot's entertainment. Appreciate it.

Aurora borealius?
At this time of Day?

Funny you should say that...
Okay this shit is creepy. Did the writers finally find the ultimate self-insert with which to manifest their feelings for Lisa within the show? And don't fucking tell me the writers don't have a creepy pedo boner for Lisa with how much they idolize her and make her into their ideal woman.
I was thinking of Woody Allen, personally.
Pretty fitting comparison I'd say.

Ah yes, back when the writers still treated her like a kid until season 5 started slowly rearing her into the Lisa we know today.
