Jackie Robinson? Really?

This is a truly brilliant little piece, from the Daily Show.

It starts out lame enough, just give some dope a chance to make a fool of himself. He actually tries to trade mark the phrase "pull my finger." If anyone owns this phrase, it is Mr. Perko, my Scoutmaster from Windermere, Florida. It was certainly his favorite joke.

But....then.....the interview goes over into something else, pure comedy gold. The Jackie Robinson comparison, and the interviewer's response. I had to go outside for a few minutes.

now, I realize the irony in comparing one atrocious comparison to another, however...

Here in DC, we've got some bus shelter ads (always a place for 'public service' type spots) that say:

Aids: it's DC's Katrina

and I thought...nope.
