Lymph Nodes, Detoxing and Lancing the Boil of Institutionalized Racism: The Daily Nooner (EST)!

Awesome Video Of The Day Shirley Q. Liquor Goes To K-Mark WARNING: Today's video IS not FUNNY in any way, shape or form. It portrays hurtful racist stereotypes, and although it does so in an entertaining voice I can assure that it IS not FUNNY. I can't speak for my fellow bloggers (I'm pretty sure that Swaim is a card-carrying Klan member), but I can tell you that I personally DOn't THINK THIS VIDEO IS FUNNY. Okay? Okay.

Shirley Q. Liquor is a character that was created by Chuck Knipp, a drag comedian who is also an ordained chaplain, registered nurse, and active member of the ACLU and Libertarian Party. On top of all this, he somehow manages to find the time to caricature southern black women and put it up on YouTube. Impressive! His live performances have been protested several times, apparently, but I can't figure out why. Maybe they're picketed by people who hate the ACLU, or people who really hate drag comedians.

Target Demographic: Morons who don't feel good Why It Sucks: So let me get this straight - you put these pads on your feet, go to sleep, the pads get dirty, and the dirty stuff is toxins, right? Well why, might I ask, do the toxins come out of your feet? And why only at night? When my socks get dirty throughout the course of the day, is it from the toxins seeping out of my soles, and if so, shouldn't I be wearing some Detox Pads to prevent it? If I'm really ambitious about detoxing (and lord knows I am), shouldn't I be wearing them all over my body 24 hours a day? I want to believe in this system, but I'm pretty sure I have too many toxins in my body for it to work for me in its present state. Which is too bad, really. I feel terrible pretty much all the time.
