Today in epic douchebaggery.

Well, okay, last month. For some reason, I've been slow to respond to Jay Leno's epic fail of an interview with Chris Rock wherein they decry the harshness of Michael Vick's "punishment." Video is widely available, but here's the gist:

Jay Leno: "It's amazing to me that you mistreat a dog and you lose your career and go to jail for two years."

Chris Rock: "What the hell did Michael Vick do, man? A dog, a pit bull ain't even a real dog. A pit bull, that's the white stuff. Dogs are white man's best friend—dogs have never been good to black people."

I don't even know where to begin, so I'll just let this staggering insensitivity speak for itself.

Other people have addressed this far more eloquently than I have. Go read them.

Oh, Chris Rock. You're so fucking funny I just threw up a little.
