    Anything can be insulting. In my opinion absolutely nothing is offensive. People who are offended by things can make the choice to be offended or not. If I am refered to as oriental with no malace intended I will not make an unneccessary fuss over it and if someone is intentionally rasict, then that person will be dismissed in my mind as someone who lacks awareness and intelligence and therefore has not got the tools to offend me. It is silly being offended by such buffoons.

    Yes well I have often wondered about salad tossing around open fire and hope that one shoals of Pirhanas will descend the moon. Does Buddy Holly know my name.

    I am also glad that I didn't recieve the fatuous little comment I was expecting and recieved instead a thoughtful answer that shows that you DO read what has been said and that are open to the views of others without diminishing what they have said and the thought that they put into it with a line of petulance. 29 year olds ARE the future, may my laurels rest with them and their ready wit.

    quiznos is good, but I like subway more.

    quiznos is fattening, and Im usually not the person to complain about fatty foods, but there is just something about their subs that makes your stomach sink.....

    things and people. if you dont know the person's exact location, like chinese, korean, vietnamese, or japanese.... its easier to say "oriental" and not get insulted for calling them something they are not. you know, alot of koreans get upset if you call them chinese.

    Quizno's subs commercials are evil, who knows who the fuck they are targeting, likely not humans.

    wel, in defense of menthos...people often take those who look that northern European as nazis.

    i have an extremely "nazi looking" cousin who is actually a really nice, down to earth person....many of my friends can't get over how nazi he looks, but he's really a rich young guy who is likely top be seen bullshitting with homeless people on the streets of manhattan.

    Just something about the look, you are wating for him to say something racist, but it never happens.

    my brothers JB and DL have the same problem. they look like hitler followers, but they're not. but i'm not just referring to the creepy, toothy, eerily happy faces of the mentos commercials. there's something wrong with their clothing, the production values, the lighting, the music, the "plots." SOMETHING is wrong with those commercials. where's fox mulder when you need him? i'd settle for the lone gunmen.

    agreed, they are unsettling, subversive in their toothy glaze.

    it's like they've got a guy that's been in a coma for 30 years writing, casting and directing the commercials, but he's trying to be hip.
