A Children’s Treasury of Mocking Mel Gibson
Like a roast, except not good-natured
We may soon be able to hear Mel Gibson tell the mother of his child that he hopes she gets raped by a gang of black-people-who-are-themselves-lower-forms-of-life. Apparently his ex-girlfriend recorded 30 minutes (30 minutes!) of ranting from Mad Mel. Figure a conservative estimate of three racial epithets per minute, and you’re approaching 100 different colorful ways for Gibson to refer to his fellow human beings.
While you await this smorgasbord of hatred, three items are worth your attention:
• Foster Kamer has a truly ingenious Mel Gibson Quoteable Flow Chart. See what Gibson would say to you! [Village Voice]
• If you have made it to this point in your life without seeing South Park’s “The Passion of the Jew,” today is the day to take 20 minutes and, y’know, rectify that. [South Park Studios]

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
