So how far is too far?

Did you find the above comic to be offensive? Tasteless? Dumb? Or just fucking hilarious?

Next post will be a rather long one dedicated to discussing animations and other media that push boundaries. Do they mock censorship and cause a ruckus for a laugh? Or is there a more political or philosophical dimension to it?
I was already planning on making a post about this with reference to animations and shows such as South Park, Wonder Showzen and the more extreme offerings from Adult Swim, shows that go above and beyond the call of duty to push buttons and even offend. Of course, I knew that this was something I had to do after seeing Four Lions by Chris Morris, a hilarious screwball comedy about a group of bungling Muslim terrorists. It's the kind of comedy that leaves you clutching your stomach with laughter and feeling quite guilty for doing so.

The spambots are conspicuously absent when I expect them

Just wait, I'll replace the post about the Chinese spambots with this one and this post will get bombarded in a day. Anyway.

Announcing a small haitus as I am about to move in two days. Which means I'll be busy packing for those days and once we've moved, I don't know how long it will be until we get internet up and running at the new place.

Once we do, however, there are some movies and TV series I would like to discuss! Perhaps expect a new post in a week or two.
