Dave Chappelle teaches us something about the Internet

So I finally found this link to a Dave Chappelle skit from his old show on Comedy Central (R.I.P Chappelle's Show) and I wanna post if on the class blog for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the skit mirrors a point brought up in the NY Times article we had to read recently about what would be considered acceptable in the Social networking/Internet world versus the real world. In the skit Chappelle talks about how "nasty" a lot of the things we accept on the Internet are and how if we looked at it in a real world situation we would get the full scope of how bad it really is. Secondly, the skit is extremely hilarious, as are all things Chappelle. Enjoy the skit.

Here's the link:

The link goes to a German site, but I don't see the video there. This is one of the perils of the internet, and underlines the fact that you need to test things out before you post to make sure they work, or at least after you post.
