Al Sharpton-Tiger Woods Joke: Site Runs Fake Sharpton-Woods Story
The Rev. Al Sharpton has chimed in on the Tiger Woods controversy, at least according to a humor website. The site CelebJihad published an Onion-style news story entitled Al Sharpton Blasts Tiger Woods for Lack of Mistress Diversity. In the piece, Al Sharpton criticizes Tiger Woods for not cheating on wife Elin Nordegren with an African-American woman.
“Why is it that a man who calls himself black can’t bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?” said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem. “What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over? Shame on you, Tiger Woods. What would your daddy say?”
The Al Sharpton-Tiger Woods joke pokes fun Tiger Woods' taste in women, but it really targets Sharpton's penchant for horning in on the major news stories, especially those regarding African-Americans.
In fact, many who first heard about the Al Sharpton-Tiger Woods story thought it might be real since Sharpton seems to feel the need to inject his commentary on every subject under the sun.
The Al Sharpton-Tiger Woods joke is also reminiscent of a joke Tina Fey made during SNL's Weekend Update.
Tonight, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner will celebrate his 75th birthday. At Hefner's side will be his seven girlfriends - Stephanie, Tiffany, Regina, Cathy, Kimberly, Buffy and, of course, Tina. Because wherever two or more whores are gathered, there's always a Tina. Now, when I first saw these women, I thought the same thing we all did - what has happened to affirmative action in this country? Hefner's dating seven blonde, white women - not a blonde pubic hair among them, might I add. Not a pubic hair among them. Come on, though - seven blondes? There's not a hot Asian woman you can throw in there? A light-skinned black woman? A deaf brunette? Something? Where's the diversity? When are we going to have a Hefner harem that looks like America?
