holy misworded sentence.. I imagine you weren't trying to do anything ulterior here, but reread that and come back to class and tell everyone why it isn't funny..

Geez, does it really have to be explained? Hidden genes can still affect future generations. If a pale skinned halfy marries a person that isn't black and then they have a baby, you would except from looking at the parents, the baby won't be black. So if the baby does turn out black, it's unexpected and such a thought can be funny.

However, I still think the funniest situation would be for a caucasian to marry an east asian, adopt a black child, and name it Ackmed (purposely misspelled). Imagine the look on the teacher's face the first time he/she is introduced to the parents of the child.

By funny you mean cruel, right?

Just for the record, Bolivians (in general) aren't black.

i fail to find the humor. and I don't need an explanation of genes and how they are affected by intermarriage.

this thread needs to just get a nice shiney new lock and stay out of the light of day..

Where does it say that Bolivians are black? No one said that. I said that my friend is half Caucasian/Bolivian.

I have a somewhat sadistic sense of humor. I even find it funny when bad things hapen to me. If you ever watched Hale nochi Guu, then maybe you understand what I mean when I say Guu is my role model. I'm a horrible horrible person.

That wasn't aimed at you. It was aimed at this:

Which I thought was a response to your post. It wasn't? :|

Hm, I didn't even think that was about my post. I was confused about what Mr. Hensha was talking about.

I was only referring to the fact that we don't know what race the OP is. If she is black, then the joke doesn't even exist.

If you people didn't all have such short fuses you'd understand Hensha's pondering much better.

The situation posited:

A woman, mixed White and Hispanic
A male, Asian

So we have three groups represented there. What other major group is not present? So what group would it be most surprising to find represented in the child?

Did you answer those two questions the same? Congratulations.

Please reset your knee-jerk triggers and enjoy the rest of the flight.

Hhmm...I have a friend who's part Japanese, part Hatian and part Polish. I always say that she's oreo-nese :D. Anyway, I wonder how she would be treated in Japanese schools (if she could speak Japanese that is, I'm always trying to make her learn).
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)
