Where's the Scooby gang when you need 'em?

I came across this bit of news recently. Just . . . read it.

Somehow I wonder if this can be turned into some sort of moneymaking venture. It's not like pinning crimes on non-existent Black dudes is anything new.

ETA: Nevermind.

Paul Mooney beat me to it back when I was too young to listen to him.


  1. Oh. My. God.

    What a horror.

  2. Josh,

    It would be nice if you didn't go out of your way to take shots at me every time you comment here. I certainly don't do the same to you.

  3. RVC,

    I think it's pretty clear that josh was being serious, or at least, there's no evidence that he wasn't.

  4. Oh no! Sorry for the misunderstanding. No shots taken! I didn't mean for that comment to seem like sarcasm.

    I genuinely find this item incredibly disturbing. That was all I meant.

  5. Josh,

    OK. Sorry about that. We're good. :D

    (Is it just me, or is it both amusing and very disturbing how easily real-life authorities are put off by shit that a 70s cartoon could figure out on half an hour?)

  6. Also, it's not like Lucasfilms made that mask or something. Couldn't they seem pink skin through the eye holes?

  7. Inorite! It's not even a good mask! It's not prosthetics - it's just a rubber thing that goes over the head.
