    Please explain the humor, and maybe I'll try again. It struck me as childish nonsense.

    And bigotry is bigotry. Look it up, you may not understand its meaning.

    You recently referred to this thread as "bigoted".

    You might want to look the word up. You seem to have trouble employing it.

    By parodying Rebel Without a Cause, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, the Twilight Zone and McCarthyism, it's taking a poke at late 1950's sensibilities. What do you associate with the late 50's but a lot of angst movies, film noir, Leave it to Beaver type families, lots of method acting; goofy horror movies; the omnipresent witch hunt for communists and PSAs moralizing about one thing or another?

    It makes fun of the communist scare. Perhaps the Canadian context and accents made it confusing for you. Can you tell me what was bigoted about it?

    "The great masses of the people will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one. If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it. By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise." Hitler’s Control of the Masses, Mein Kampf
    I made it thru about four and a half minutes before coming to the same conclusion.
