"Anime is a prime example of why two nukes just wasn't enough."
-- New Hampshire State Rep. Nick Levasseur on Facebook
Levasseur has already begun the process of groveling for forgiveness, saying, "I would like to deeply apologize for the insensitivity of this post. It was a poorly thought out comment, posted in jest on my private Facebook page." Meanwhile the sonic blast of outrage and righteous indignation was almost instantaneous; just check out some of the comments over at HuffPo calling for this poor doof's head.
Of course it was a really dumb thing to say, given that the guy's a state representative and all. But you know something -- it was also damn funny.
Christ, lighten up, people. It's not hate speech. It's a freaking joke.
