Scoop: Blacks Can Eat Without Burning Down Restaurant, Says O'Reilly

Guess who's coming to dinner. What? It's Bill O'Reilly? Oh, fuck.

Faltering radio-show host Bill O'Reilly was his usual understated self recently when he made this observation after dining at Harlem's black-owned Slyvia's restaurant:
"There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who [was] screaming,'M-Fer was, I want more iced tea," he told National Public Radio's Juan Williams. "[It] was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn't any kind of craziness at all."
C'mon, Bill! Not one person? Surely there was some sort of krumping contest going on in the coat room? Or maybe a dice game at table four? Next you're going to tell me Rerun isn't their sous chef. Personally, all this blanket stereotyping is making me hungry for a good ole conservative-radio insane "thought experiment."

any truth to the rumor that Senator Joe Biden was there that night and commented that everyone in the restaurant was "clean and articulate"?

Run with this as you wish- but blanket stereotyping cuts on both sides of the aisle.

I've missed you! Where ya been?

Biden's remark has been misinterpreted. By 'clean' he meant unsullied by controversy, not 'pleasant to the sniffer.'

thanks..good to be back, just been very busy at work recently and haven't had to time to spew my Right Wing Hate..

I see what you are saying about the "clean" remark.. I suppose that Biden's "articulate" reply was also misinterpreted, and he actually meant "can understand him because he didn't use a rap song to get his point across"

Funny stuff, Steve. Good to have you back.
