I vaguely remember that book when I was a kid.  I think one of my Jr High teachers had it.

Isn't the term "politically correct" just a cover that assholes use to be unbearable assholes while pretending that they are brave and persecuted?  As in "look, I know this isn't politically correct, but the gays really are depraved child molesting perverts and I for one think they should be kicked out of the country"?

Yep, pretty much.

So an updated version of "No offense, but . . ."

No.  It's more like a generalized version of "I'm sorry if this sounds racist..."

Couldn't help looking it up myself. It's from a series called "The Hero Yoshihiko and The Demon King’s Castle". It's a Japanese show that you can find subtitled episodes here.

UPDATE: Just watched the first episode. It's filled with goofy stuff like this picture and JRPG tropes. Even throws in a nod to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. So far, I think it's great.

Oh goody I might have a new show, one that's a bit Monkey-like.  :)

I'm liking it so far. Kinda like a live-action anime.  :)

Try  to check out the show I linked to at some point, if you've seen The Forbidden Kingdom, it's the show playing on the TV right at the beginning of the movie. :)

I watched the first episode and I love the bathetic elements to it, it's a show I might want to dub so so my nephews and god son can enjoy it (little kids, except in some rare cases, aren't all that fond of reading subtitles).

Thanks MSTJedi! I'll have to give that a whirl. The posted scene reminded me of something out of one of the Gamers movies.

A dub sounds great. My kids like anime and such, but aren't much for reading subs, either. Let us know if anything happens with that.
