Episode Summary

EDIT
Ethnic Humour
AIRED:
Harold Ramis warns viewers that this show contains ethnic slurs, and all the joks are about the gypsies. From "Gypsy Mythology" on Sunrise Semester to the Hints for Homemakers (a gypsy recommends holding up an Amish fmily and stealing their food), this show is indeed a gypsy rogue.moreless

    • Humanities 196: "Let's briefly look at the creation of man. According to Gypsy Mythology, God baked the first men and women in an oven. Some, however, were kept in the oven too long, and they burned—the black race. The second time, God opened the oven door too soon and the baking was not quite finished—the white race. The third time, the baking was absolutely perfect and out came the gypsies.
      "In the same respect, the destruction of man, according to Gypsy Mythology, will come when one member of every race simultaneously licks the fuzz off an over-ripe peach."
      —Earnest Bruter, Gypsy Mythologist
