    The Sikhs need to grow up, and remember how many nasty comments they have made about Westerners. They also need to immediately learn the definitions of "satire" and "political humor".

      Such as? I'm not being sarcastic, it's just I haven't heard a lot of nasty comments from Sikhs...probably because I don't know many, but still.

        Talk to some old Brits about the reaction of the Sikhs to being incorporated into the British Empire back in the days of the Raj.

        Or about their own insults towards the tribes around them whom they did not get along with.

        I believe as an article of faith that white people are probably the only people on Earth who can take a joke about themselves.

        I took care of a couple of Sikh males in the INS detention facility in Denver, and their comments about the Hispanic detainees were vicious and extremely insulting, and they didn't care that I heard them. One of them informed me that I was "unclean" because I touched the other detainees...so I informed him that he was SOL for medical treatment because I didn't have time to go through some cleansing ceremony just so I could examine his scroty little body, which needed a shower in the first place.

        I can't be completely sure, but I might have hurt his feelings.

            Hmmm. Doesn't sound good. Thanks for sharing, but surely other groups/ethnicities are guilty of nasty comments? I know latinos (probably myself included) can be right mean sometimes...

              Of course they are, and they do...and that's the point. Any group that claims to be offended at humor like that needs to gaze deeply into a mirror first.

                  It might be worth being sued for a joke that was funny, which that one wasn't.

                    True. Very true.

                      Actual humor is not a staple of American comedians any longer. Take a look at guys like Letterman. Mahr, Leary, Miller, Colbert and others.

                      Even Lewis Black now has to use the F-word in almost every punchline in order to get laughs. Americans are jaded and disillusioned.
