  1. Whoo hoo hoo – Tracy Morgan apologies to a Californian bin bag company for making insulting comments regarding sexuality and for threatening violence *sigh*

    I guess that episode doesn’t actually say have Jordan saying the same hateful and ignorant jokes like Morgan said in real life. Has anyone seen the episode?

    … and what are “ill-considered gay comments”, anyway? “Honey, that shirt does NOT go with your colouring” ??

    I think I’m tired of 30 Rock now.

  2. It’s 2012 and any random loon can post here. PN you need to use disqus

    1. Disqus is a great idea, PN why not ?

    2. Any random loon can sign up for one of the various login methods Disqus supports too. And they certainly do. I much prefer login-free systems like this, it’s a lot less arsing about.

  3. Ah I see an internet troll is trying to bait people into getting upset and replying ;) Bad effort my friend. D- must try harder ;)

    1. I’m so going to use “strugglous” in a sentence today :D

        I’m going to try and find it in a dictionary.

    He is just one unfunny comedian no matter what they do to try to “improve” his image.

    Yawn – try harder troll, this is just too obvious.

    I thought the joke by Morgan was funny and timely. That is if you are to assume that Tracy Morgan has a mind! That the concept has a point. That maybe the framing of the joke was a little too obvious and daring.

    If you don’t get the joke that is okay. If you fail to understand the concept that is okay.
    What isn’t okay is this idea that he must apologise for making a joke and even when he takes steps to rectify the outrage it isn’t enough.

  7. Ribs? Would sack not be more appropriate? Definite culpability on the part of the production team of 30Rock there whilst trying to have their cake and eat it by appearing to remonstrate with Tracy (!?) behaving like a performing dog to keep his job and his wage packet. Hmm. Anyways…Tracy(?!) I think I understand now.

    A tiresome show that revels in its own cuteness and cleverness, and which is made even more unbearable by the inconsistently placed character ‘played’ by Tracy Morgan.
