How about some news to lighten up your day?
In shithole African country #12 (Sierra Leone, if it matters to you), people are dying and they have no access to drugs or medicines, as The New York Times reports.
A poor woman has contracted breast cancer and is slowly kicking the bucket. In fact, she is suffering to death. The article describes that the tumor had burst through her skin, looking like a putrid head of cauliflower weeping small amounts of blood at its edges.
Here is a photo of a cauliflower to assist you in imagining what her cancer-ridden breasts looks like.
So far, so boring.
Author of the article, Donald G. McNeil Jr, asks the woman how she feels about her unfortunate situation:
"It bone! It booonnnne lie de fi-yuh!"
Sorry, could you please repeat that?
"IT BONE! IT BOOOONNNNE LIE DE FI-YUH!"
Hats off to you, Donald, for the lulz. You're on FI-YUH!

Youre a real fucker. Me and my brother and sister spent our childhood years in Sierra Leone, among others in Africa, when our parents were acting as medical missionaries. They built hospitals and schools and ran them, free, to help people. What was amazing was that the people trusted us more than they did the state sponsored Christian hospitals. Yes, we are Muslims.
Youve clearly never seen real pain and misery otherwise you wouldnt be making fun of her. Disgusting

This guy's clearly a poe. I say this, not only because of his site name and this post, but because his profile avatar is also a picture of Seung-Hi Cho(AKA: The VA shooter.)
Update: Yep, definite poe. He claims to like killing U.S. soldiers, Humanitarians, and cute puppies, says he lives in Iraq and his town was carpet-bombed by the U.S., says his two favorite books are the Bible and The God Delusion, and to top it all off, his profile name is actually Allahweh Godwin. No joke.

You are unfunny.

Yeah, that humour of yours isn't actually funny, Poe guy. What kind of lame idiot goes to all that effort anyway?
Oh, yeah, teenagers.

Attention Whores Say The Darndest Things too sometimes.

This isn't necessarily a poe or parody.
This guy may be an asshole who genuinely thinks this sort of thing is funny which would indicate racism.
If a person tells a racist joke it's not definitive proof that they are racist but racists do love to tell racist jokes and the lower the quality of the humor the more likely that they're doing it for the racism and not for the humor. There's a fine line between distasteful-yet-funny and offensive-stereotypes-inflate-my-racist-ego.

what the fuck.

I wonder why it seems like our species will never reach any higher level of maturity. Is it because of people like you? Maybe.

Kid, you are not the Landover Baptist of racism.
8/25/2009 8:59:27 AM
Kid, with your trolling, you're trying too hard.

Poor woman's dying of cancer, and all you can do is make fun of her accent? What an asshole!
8/25/2009 8:37:10 PM
Wait until you've got a cancer and, thanks to Obama, you'll have the chance to have free assistance.

Saying that a poor, dying woman, FROM AN NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRY is saying something as she dies and you don't understand it is, somehow funny?
You are the worst person ever. I hope you die painfuly and alone

*Beep* Ooooh I'm sorry, wrong answer.
You see, Sierra Leone's official language is actually English, technically he's being intolerant to their dialect in relation to his, not their inability to speak english.
A large amount of people make this poor assumption about African countires. In fact, it was only the other day on the bus that one rather feral chap was swearing at some African people speaking in their language. He thought they were speaking some kind of hoodoo tribal language, when in fact, they were speaking french like most Northern African people.

SHE'S ON FIRE FIRE FIRE FIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

It took me a moment to work out what the poe was saying; I'm pretty sure it's 'It burn! It burn like the fire!'.
So yeah, poe or not, making fun of her for her accent, in light of everything, isn't funny.
