Do you award me no points and may God have mercy on my soul?

I recommend using words like 'dumber' or something less harsh than your choice of words for future reference. Some people take offense to your choice, though not myself.

Well he did say "we" and "more retarded", so that suggests we are all a little retarded already (including himself).

How can someone be mad about that? O:-)


Lol. :-b :-b :-b

I take no offense to using "retarded" in everyday speech as derogatory. Madison brought up a good point that we're all retarded to some degree; it's all about to which degree. I would assume that anyone retarded enough to take offense to such a distinction would probably be disabled enough to not even understrand the nature of being offended. If the offense comes from a family member or loved one being labeled "retarded" then that's simply a reflection on the derogatory nature of labels than actual disability.

Also, get used to it; my girlfriend is a middle school librarian and being "retarded" and/or "gay" is a bona fide insult, not so much to degrade those who fit those categories, but rather a childish and juvinile way of affirming one's own perceived superiority. We've clearly come a long way in the last 50 years, so Madison, an avid pro gun/death penalty advocate surely would understand the distinction.

8-o

I was just trying to lighten up the situation a little.....you know, make a dumb joke? :-o

I mean, Bill Cosby says all parents have "brain damage" due to their kids, and I have a kid, so I have "brain damage" according to the logic. Kinda the same thing here. Lol. :-b

I didn't consider myself 'retarded' before seeing that and reading this thread, but after this, I'm asking my wife for a second opinion...

...confirmed. :-B
