Q: Do you like Kipling?

A: I don't know. I've never been kippled.

Cracks me up every time.

Mr. Kipling kind of came to grips with the Empire's racism in his poem "Gunga Din".

Kind of.

Below is my, ala Kipling, offering to another Deen.

My apologies to Rudyard.

WARNING: Inappropriate language

You may talk of okra and lard
When you are safe inside your yard
And your friends are comfortable with your way of talkin’
Your colloquial Southern Charm
Was never meant to harm
Those thin skinned darkies who would like to see ya walkin’

Now, your use of the word nigger
Was never meant to trigger bad feelings,
It was only for the love of things long past
Like slaves in livery and a rope in every tree
Where you could hang ‘em if you didn’t like their sass.

Deen, Deen, Deen , where the mischief  have you been?
Stuck on the plantation?
Mourning your defeated Southern Nation?
You pasty faced old racist, Paula Deen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
