Had this thought last night while roasting Caroline at Jackie’s restaurant.

“An arrogant winner is a loser.” – Mazhar Khan 1.13.2007

For those who don’t know, the Wikipedia has this to say about what a “Roast” is:

“A roast, in North American English, is an event in which an individual is subject to publicly bearing insults, praise, outlandish true and untrue stories, and heartwarming tributes.

It is seen as a great honor to be roasted, as the individual is surrounded by friends, fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well during the course of the evening.

The party and presentation itself are both referred to as a roast. The host of the event is called the roastmaster. It is also known as a burn, as one is insulted (usually a skew on what said person spoke), various peers will call “Burn!”. In short, it is both the opposite and the same as a “toast” [citation needed].”

I’d like people to know that, there is a fine line between cracking a joke at someone and getting them to laugh with you and not knowing when to shut up. Ending up pushing the limits and offending someone.

If you’ve ever been hurt by my burns or comedy, chances are you deserved it. Probably left you laughing at yourself.

For the rest of y’all. Thanks for bearing with the randomness and scrutiny. You know I love you all.

Laugh a little.

You don’t have to be retarded to be retarded.
