Murdering people on film is ok. Raping women on film is ok. But making a joke about leprosy isn't ok? Are we doomed by our own ultra sensitivity?

Seriously? Are there that many lepers around? What are they doing in a theater if so? It's contagious.

lepers are very sensitive about these kind of things. it's like at the zoo - the lions and tigers get all the attention and they usually have the leper pens shoved off in one corner.



Live, love, laugh.

I thought lepers were people who could jump really far.
