White People Jokes

I make ’em, both because I think they’re funny and there is such a thing as white culture (or cultures), other than just being “default” American culture, and the only way to bring that into focus (other than just letting the racists define what white culture is) is to articulate it.

Anyway, go laugh over at Pith. Or don’t laugh if you don’t find it funny. Either way.

  1. It’s funny ’cause it’s true.

    Re: the park: it was designed that way thanks to the efforts of a neighborhood family who had a wheelchair-bound daughter. They raised a lot of money to build an accessible playground. It’s also right behind Harris-Hillman school, which has a lot of children with special needs.

  2. Ahahaha! Perfect! The receptionist at my job is about to have a boy named Aiden. I guess she pulled “A” out of the hat?

  3. There was something I watched on Netflix – as I recall several filmmakers were interviewed and there was this somewhat famous indie filmmaker who is from Nashville. (I have googled him six ways to Sunday to figure out his name & I can’t). Anyway, he related a tale of being a child at that park and some kid died near the dragon. I have always thought about that story when I drive by that park.

  4. Harmony Korine is the filmmaker from Nashville I was trying to think of earlier. He ruined that park for me.

  5. A few years ago it was “ogen” instead of Aiden. My sister–a kindergarten teacher–is a wealth of information on baby name trends. She had a class with two logans, a hogan, an actual, living Brogan (ha) and a Ragen, which is sort of a substitution rule on its own.

  6. I would be willing to bet that “Reagan” (in any form) is the missing link between the “ogen” and the “aiden” names.

  7. I would totally name my kid Raiden. He’s the thunder god in the Mortal Kombat video games, and has some of the goriest moves!


  8. While I’m not sure about the trees, I will attest that missing dragon tiles aren’t so new. Well, maybe more than ever are missing. But as beautiful as that dragon is, close up I’ve always noticed that it could use some TLC. Although considering that it gets some really rough usage, maybe it’s more fair to say that it’s held up rather well over the years.

  9. Petal is an unusual name yet we have plenty of flower names:
    Rose, Daisy, Hyacinth, Violet, Lily, Iris, Aster etc

    Go figure.

  10. I remember back in the late 80s/early 90s when dragon park at night was *the* place for all the goth / punk / misfit / weirdo teenagers to hang out. Ceramic dragon + lsd = good times.

  11. Yeah, but you youngsters are such wimps! Dragon statues? Back in my day it was LSD and no props except album covers. We had to trip uphill both ways, with no shoes.
