is it still offensive if makes no fucking sense whatever?

Hey, how can we top that horrible New Yorker cover? I know, let’s compare the nation’s first African American President to a monkey that’s been gunned down by white policemen!

I know the New York Post is claiming that it’s a “satire” of the chimp that had to be shot in Connecticut earlier this week after it attacked its owner. But what the hell does that have to do with the economy? You can’t just take 2 random, totally unrelated news items, shove them together, and go “Haw haw, it’s SATIRE!” Humor doesn’t work that way.

But this is the Post, which is notoriusly stupid and purposely offensive, so maybe we should cut them some slack. It’s like getting mad at The National Enquirer for having low fact-checking standards when they put a 72-point headline about how Nostradamus predicted that Paris Hilton is really an organ-harvesting alien from Planet Reticulon-7 on the cover.
