Unlike Most of His Contemporaries Who Use Humor to Address Difficult Subject Matter (usually to appallingly offensive outcomes), Chris Rock uses Something Else

...WIT.


from THE WARP

Many people would say it's impossible for anyone to come up with a good joke about the recent mass shootings. Dane Cook and Jeff Ross have taken heat for trying. But Chris Rock demonstrated on "CBS This Morning" Thursday that it's possible.
"We got to figure out guns," Rock said. "We got to figure out how to stop this gun stuff. We do. Whenever people try to defend their guns, they always say, “I'm protecting my property. I'm protecting my property.” Every time there's a mass shooting, it's a guy who lives with his mother. He owns no property."

WELL DONE, MR. ROCK, WELL DONE
