Homo-Phones: Joe reads from a list of British gay slang words and I attempt to correctly define them… Also we both have to speak in English accents. (I apologize in advance…)
Right. Cultural Appropriation. There appears to be some confusion among Tumblrites as to what it is and isn’t.
If you wished to know what it is, the above video is a perfect example!
I don’t know what those accents are, but they were actually causing me physical pain, which is why I couldn’t actually watch all of it.
And the terms used… out of the ones I managed to stay put for, they’re a combination of made up, went out of fashion with glam rock, and at least one was actually a homophobic slur. Were you actually to visit the UK queer scene and use any of these, the reaction would be a) confusion, b) laughter, c) pity, d) all of the above or e) you get asked to leave.
And if you say ANYTHING in that accent, it won’t matter anyway, everyone will be too busy fleeing. On a scale of 0 - 10 where 0 is Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins and 10 is the Queen, it’s actually in the negative numbers. If it were any poorer, it would be selling a kidney.
Let this video be an example of comedy lead, and then let it never be spoken of again. Let its very URL be lost to the web forever, and let time bury it with the recognition it deserves. Amen.
Right. Comedy Appropriation. There appears to be some confusion among Tumblrites as to what it is and isn’t.

Comedy appropriation is instituted and governed by an uncalled-for committee of seemingly never ending self-appointed officials who have inexplicably taken it upon themselves to cross examine all available content and declare irrefutably whether such works warrant laughter.
These laugh-fascists, who operate solely from their home-offices which collectively constitute the department of humor, assume total control over matters of comedy despite their apparent inability to understand or recognize it in even it’s most primitive of forms, such as a “fart.”
It has been shown a large majority of these ill-ected officials frown upon the use of such involuntary bodily functions as a source of laughter. An unfounded opinion they argue vehemently even in the face of science which has categorically and definitively proven that butt-trumpets make any situation or conversation exponentially more humorous.
However this bitter behavior (insert fart noise) would seem to make sense when one studies the anatomy of a laugh-fascist. The swiftness and degree of ease to which these individuals are butt hurt comes from their evolutionary impediment, an incredibly tight asshole. An anus so sour and tense it is puckered nearly into evaporation. These assholes are so incredibly tight that they have never had the joy of experiencing a fart of their own.
This comedy constipation propels them on a never ending assault of vindictive verbal diarrhea in a desperate attempt to deny everyone around them the joys of laughter that so evidently escape them.
Please I urge you, resign from your self-righteous pulpit of choir-less churches! No one cares for your stodgy sermons or comedy-crippling commandments!
I BEG OF YOU!!!! OPEN YOUR BROWN EYE AND BE ENLIGHTENED TO LAUGHTER!!! LET THE POWERFUL PUNCHLINES OF MY PREACHING FIST THE PARCHED POLYPS OF YOUR UNTICKLED ENTRAILS AND BURST THROUGH THE BLOCKAGE OF BICKERING THAT DAMS YOUR ASSHOLE!!! BE FREE TO LAUGH!!!! Gaymen.
