Oh, and it just ocurred to me that according to Ernst Mayr I must be a different species from Inuits. We’re reproductively isolated by geography and there isn’t a snowball’s chance in south central Texas I’d be attracted to an Inuit woman anyhow even though we’re probably still physically compatible on a hypothetical basis sort of like brown bears and polar bears.
That reminds me of a joke that I heard from a comedian at a comedy club a few weeks ago.
"My boss doesn't think he's racist but he says racist things all the time without realizing it, but he's my boss y'know, so I can't call him on it, I just have to play along. Just about every Tuesday he goes to Hooters and he loves to talk about Hooters all the time, even though no on is interested. But he's my boss, so I suck up to him. Wednesday morning I asked him. 'So! How was Hooters? Was your waitress hot?' He seemed really disappointed. He scoffed and said, 'No, she was black.' So what could I say? 'Jeez, that's terrible. Did you complain to the manager? You know, they really should screen for that sort of thing.'"
