Tell A Joke, Don’t Pass Go, Pay $200,000

JokerI just had lunch with Québécois comedian Mike Ward. He didn’t order anything, because he’s been avoiding food after seeing himself on TV a lot these past few weeks. “I realized I was starting to look like a fat lesbian,” he said while strongly resembling an obese K.D. Lang. “So I’m fasting.”

Ward should watch what he says. That kind of insensitive joke has saddled him with more than $100,000 in lawyer’s fees and a potential fine of another $80,000…

    Only fat lesbians want to look like ‘fat lesbian’.
    It’s not a good look for psychologically well-adjusted people.

    “The Ohio Civil Rights Commission decided the Pleasure Inn’s “For Service Speak English” sign was unacceptable in 2005, and demanded they take it down”

    I browsed through my copy of the Constitution and saw no mention of Civil Rights Commissions anywhere. That doesn’t seem to matter when the Thought Police are on the march.

    One of the thousands of so-called humorists churned out by the École de l`humour.
    None of them are funny.
    When I see Ward, I change channel. I`d rather listen to CBC News!

    • David Murrell

      Yes, but the CBC is a miserable alternative.

      • Canadian

        So true!
        But it`s the only local channel without those damned humorists!
        They`re everywhere. Sitcoms, quizzes, commercials, dramas, reality tv stupidities, etc.
