Lighten up

Mike Kelly | Thursday, November 19, 2009

 As a longtime fan of both humor and Mobile Party (not synonymous, but darn close) I fully support the Nov. 13 installment. Considering aforementioned observation that Mobile Party is approximately equal to humor, I am in favor of their work. From what I gather, Mobile Party makes fun of anything and everything that most Notre Dame students consider humorous (or highly offensive). Given this standard, I find it equivalently humorous that someone would choose the unfortunate ginger issue to take a stand on (“Ginger Pride,” Nov. 16). 

When Mobile Party makes fun of tools, do you stand up and complain? No. When Mobile Party makes fun of that one chick in the North Face, do you picket? Doubt it (unless that chick is actually you). The point is that these jokes appear in a comic strip intended for your entertainment. Not for you to get your panties in a bind thus dangerously stoking the fire on the carpet up to the already matching drapes into a blazing ging-ferno. Lighten up. And by lighten up I mean go ahead and continue dying your hair to some less offensive color, red really gets my ire up. Long live Mobile humor.
