"[Roseanne Barr] nails the Fuehrer’s facial expressions with twisted glee..."

From her blog: "Also, I hate Hitler, because he thought that artists should be censored."

Not because he killed millions?

you should see her rants on Israel

antisemitic sicko bitch

yomamma said...

not getting the humor are we?

Lisa said...

She's not funny

yomamma said...

i guess you would know because you have paid her a lot more attention than i have.

Roseanne is a sharp tongued lady. I am glad to see that she is against the anti-jew Murdering maniac from the 1940s. Now lets see if she is also against the anti-jew murdering maniacs of 2009.

Ever notice that the steps down the cultural ladder get further and further apart?

It has become known for its satire and sardonic approach to reaching Jewish readers of all streams. One phony ad campaign that was designed to make a point was an application for “new United Nations ambassadors”. It was a mail-in test thatdetermined just how anti-Israel the test taker was, and the more against Israel you tested, the better the chance you had of being accepted. Heeb reported that they actually received hundreds of applicants.
this was in wikipedia entry on Heeb Magazine, a SATIRIC magazine of Jewish humor, by and for Jews
If you have laughed at Mel Brooks, you are guilty!

Roseanne: Are you offended yet! I'm dressed like Hitler! I'm so edgy! Are you offended yet???

Middle America: Um, no... comes off more pathetic than offensive really.

Roseanne: Obama damn it! What does it take to offend you people!!

The Crack Emcee said...

Why, Ann, just "why?"

David said...

How original.

Maguro said...

Woulda been better with John Goodman as Eva Braun.

L. E. Lee said...

A Roseanne post? There is definitely an Althouse Hillbilly theme going today.

Marcia said...

It's gotten to the point that when I see a celebrity name in a headline, I expect the name to be immediately followed by "found dead in ..."

EDH said...

Is this Roseanne Barr pitching herself to become Obama's Health Care Czar?

EDH said...

Czar Barr?

Is that so bizarre?

Father Martin Fox said...

Let me get this straight...

I'm out of it if I don't think this is funny; and I'm anti-Jewish if I'm appalled because I think people in ovens, and joking about putting people in ovens makes me want to vomit?

Just want to know how to navigate this...

SteveR said...

Is this the same Rosanne Barr who was funny on Johnny Carson about 25 years ago?

jag said...

I hate Hitler because he made it impossible for photos like this to be even remotely funny.

oh, and because he killed millions.

Ya know what I don't get about the old television show Beverly Hillbillies, now in syndication? I wondered silently while sitting on this here sack of seeds, gnawing a hay straw and whittle'n on a stick and contemplating whether or not I 'ought'a fix that leak in the tin roof and concluding, nah, I'll just put a pot under the drip when it gets tuh rain'n, and then figer'n later on when I get around to it, I could use the lower limb on that oak tree next to the '62 Impala up on cinder blocks, on account of it not got no tires, tuh hook up a pully and yank that engine block. The thing that gets me is Jeb, Granny, and Ellie Mae are purportedly ace shots with rifle shoot'n, picking off the wings of flies on the front gate from from across the driveway from their chairs on the front porch just for fun and for shoot'n practice. But the whole premise of the show is Jeb striking oil while hunting food, which is patently ridiculous to begin with but indicates Jeb isn't all that great of a shot. That is an intolerable inconsistency.

But speaking of white trash ... I was invited to a party with the theme of white trash. This puzzled me greatly because I never heard that term. I heard of white parties, but not white trash parties. I wondered if they intended for us to dress in white plastic kitchen trash bags. Or what? I had no idea. Turns out they meant all no-class things. Hors d oeuvres were Cheeze-It's and pretzels with sour cream dip still in the original containers set up on an ironing board as an ersatz table. Christmas tree decorated with beer cans, garland made of can tabs. Orange and lime Jello mold with shredded carrots. Music played on an 8-track. People dressed head to toe in polyester. Where they got all those clothes is beyond me. Complete with the worst shoes ever.

I'll have to take this article as evidence Rosanne Barr is still alive.

Springtime for Hitler was funny in part because it was so damned audacious but also because it simultaneously ridiculed the Nazis.

This photo-shoot, in contrast, was dull. Where's the rest of it? Ah, jew-cookies. OK. But there's nothing unexpected here. Dull, lifeless.

"Noted psychologist Patricia Keith-Spiegel identified two primary reasons why we laugh.
• We laugh out of surprise.
• We laugh when we feel superior.

Keith-Spiegel identified six additional motivations for laughter, each of which supports the two main reasons, surprise and superiority.
• We laugh out of instinct.
• We laugh at incongruity.
• We laugh out of ambivalence.
• We laugh for release.
• We laugh when we solve a puzzle.
• We laugh to regress.
"

None of those here.
Not even surprise, really.

Not funny.

John Lynch said...

Uh... the comment "Rosanne Barr is still alive" is the best one.

Penny said...

"... truth is the key governing principal to Barr."

So say we all...

rhhardin said...

There's a book of concentration camp jokes somewhere, I take it as a sort of sotto voce remark on the obligation to take everybody seriously.

Methadras said...

People still listen to this dull-witted, clumsy fat cow?

Methadras said...

Hey Pogo, you forgot to add courtesy laughter.

Methadras said...

Oh, and the nerd snort.

To Crack, it's all about the commenters. Sir Archie calls it the "Theater of Topicks". The Althousian Theater is my favorite drinking blog. Well, actually my only drinking blog.

To Father Martin, Jokes about the ovens are over the top. If you have visited Auschwitz you know the horror of it all. But then you know that men are evil but can do goo, do you not. Rosanne claims to be Jewish.
Enough said...

Chip the Gourmet Chef, You had to be raised in The South to understand what white trash really means. Your friends had not a clue.

He was obviously shooting at a rabbit or a squirrel and the bullet passed through to strike the ground.

Penny said...

And HEY! We really liked Jeb!

No one said he needed to be a straight shooter.

rcocean said...

Roseanne Barr - still not funny.

Father Martin Fox said...

RLB:

OK, but part of my point was this:
Does Barr being Jewish somehow mean (a) a joke that's otherwise offensive is okay and (b) those of us who are offended are out of line being offended?

Auschwitz was a crime against many, including the Jewish people.

Penny said...

And maybe her current "truth" is that she doesn't need to present herself as funny. The friggin' WORLD is "funny" now.

Was Roseanne Barr ever on the leading edge? Those who say "Yea", might want to keep up with where she is heading.

I suspect most of us will be pointing and denegrating though.

Deb said...

It was JED Clampett, not JEB. There is an important distinction.

Dogwood said...

Does Barr being Jewish somehow mean (a) a joke that's otherwise offensive is okay and (b) those of us who are offended are out of line being offended?

No and No.

There just isn't anything funny about the systematic slaughter of millions of innocent people.

The Crack Emcee said...

Just for the record:

I'm not offended by this, but it's just not funny, and I'll laugh at anything. I liked Roseanne at the beginning (think Carson) but she's nothing now.

The verdict is in, Ann, now "why?"

TRO said...

Roseanne would sleep with Hitler if it would give her some publicity.
