He said: "You are the worst motherf*****s in the world, you agency guys," referring to advertising bosses in the audience.Members of New Zealand's blogging community seem less concerned. Says Mr Farrar, it was a roast! Says Throng, it is a beat up! Says Danyl Mc, it is all about being in character. Says Fairfacts Media, it is all about being on the Left.
He said: "I want to eat you, but I won't because I don't want to get HIV. Would you roast an HIV person? You'd roast them because they're expendable. Like the Jews. Hitler had a right, you know.
"You've all got f****** Aids, c****!"
The outburst has sparked outrage in New Zealand's Jewish community and among Aids health advocates
The savants of the blogging community, you see, know all about the tradition of the Comedy Roast. These are men who watch Comedy Central, after all. Thus they deride the provincial know-nothings of the MSM for their ignorance of this fine comedic tradition. It was a roast! A roast is meant to be outrageous!
Well, yes. But, and it is a big but, is not the object of the outrageous comedy meant to be the guest of the roast? Is that not the point - that the comedians make jokes about their guest of honour, who takes it all in good humour and shows everyone that he is a mensch? Surely the point is not to make unfunny jokes about other people who could not be there on the night - the six million Jews who died in the Shoah and the thirty-three million people who live with HIV/AIDS? Surely there is enough humour that could be made from the advertising industry without having to bring innocent victims into the room?
Members of the Fascist Community think otherwise, of course. Members of the advertising community might have wondered why they bothered coming out on a winter night to be abused by an unknown celebrity drunk who clearly cannot do standup; they may have wondered how he could stand up (boom boom).
Members of the comedy community might be wondering what is going on in Mr Fane's id. To put it another way:
שלושה דברים אדם ניכר בכוסו בכיסו ובכעסו
