by

It is often difficult to become outraged at the outrage in a province where, it often seems, everyone delights in being a victim at least once in their lives. So, after digesting the news that an outfit named ‘The Canadian Italian Business and Professional Association” [ed’s note: churlish, leg-breaking mafia-related joke redacted] has taken grave offense to the above skit from seasoned baby-boomer comedy troupe Rock et Belles Oreilles, and has launched a complaint with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission alleging all sorts of nasty, greasy-haired stereotypes, let us instead end on a truly tasteless joke exploiting another cherished Italian stereotype.

Q. Who really killed John F. Kennedy?

A. Two hundred Italian sharpshooters.
