LEAST SENSITIVE TO THE DELICIOUS TEARS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE  
I'm sorry, but a Harry Potter RPG called "Kristallnacht" has to be the fucking funniest thing I've heard all week.

[ETA: OH SHIT AND IT'S MAY 4th SO GUESS WHAT ELSE I'M BEING INSENSITIVE ABOUT!]

I miss the days when metafandom was metafandom, and not metawank. -_-

Well, now that Fandom Wank has dropped the ball, god knows we need a list of like ten posts that all express the same exact moral outrage.

As a Jew, I'm not, like...offended. She uses WWII analogues in the series all the time anyway, it's basically a logical extension of that.

Ooooh, did someone set up an RP with the National Guard gunning down protesting Hogwarts students?

I FUCKING NEED THIS RPG, HOLY SHIT. A WHOLE FUCKING WALL OF AVADA KEDAVRAS WASTING COLLEGE STUDENTS.

I don't know, I just don't fucking care and don't get why people would. I think, if anything, this world needs more Hitler jokes. And May 4th is always funny, of course.

Thought: actually, how is any of this all that different from all that "they saved Hitler's brain!" shit from the 60s or whatever?

I'm seriously tempted to write some bizarre Harry Potter Vietnam War thing now. Drugs! Rock 'n' roll! Wizard napalm! (first person to think up a goofy JKR name for napalm wins five points for Gryffindor)

Humor and metaphor and satire are a perfectly good way to reclaim and heal and all that shit anyway. I mean, hell...Hogan's Heroes, Rollin Hand playing a Nazi, even that Charlie Chaplin movie about Hitler. Haven't seen the episode with Hitler's brain, but fuck me do I want to. IDK, maybe the 1960s get a free pass along with the objectification and racism in the same way that old people are allowed to say horrible things about "them coloreds" and nobody gives a crap.

god damn, stop me before I write a thesis in your journal on the use of satire as a way to deal with immediate tragedy. Humor is supposed to be tragedy plus time, but it usually seems like the funniest shit comes out right around the time the tragedy actually happens, and then later everyone starts lighting candles and glaring at anyone who doesn't cry all the time.

I will say something more intelligent later, but for now

and then later everyone starts lighting candles and glaring at anyone who doesn't cry all the time.
