“I think Robin Williams should go and spend a little time in Alabama before he frames comments about people being particularly redneck,” said Mr Rudd.”

Huh?

Alabama...? Well if that isn’t a British redneck thing to say! or maybe just an Australian jackass thing.

Y’know...I used to LIKE Robin Williams.

Now he’s gone and stepped on his crank with the old golf shoes with this one.

Maybe a bunch of us could be rednecks there. It’s for sure, none of us can throw rocks. All I need is a single link to one ancestor who was sent to Austrailia instead of the Colonies. I’d apply for an extended Visa.

Redneck is a compliment

There are good people in both Alabama and Australia, and there are rich and famous people who are, in reality, festering pustules of rancid vomit.

Hmm, he’s saying that if Robin goes to Alabama he’ll see that the ‘rednecks’ there are far inferior to the people of Australia. You Sir, owe Alabama an apology. You snob!

I think Kevin Rudd just stuck his foot in his mouth.

Few are laughing in Australia following Robin Williams' joke that its people are "basically English rednecks". His remarks, made on The Late Show with David Letterman...
Too late to boycott Letterman, and Robin Williams hasn't been funny in over twenty years.

According to Miss Manners, (Judith Martin in the WP), the only people who can make jokes about a certain group are members of that group. Hence, you have Eddie Murphy making jokes about blacks, Jeff Foxworthy making jokes about rednecks, etc.. What is taboo, is to make jokes about a group to which you don’t belong.

Williams is just making a harmless joke. Rudd should have said, “Sounds like a harmless joke to me. I’d like to invite Robin to come visit us here down under for a bit of fun. THEN he can joke about us, ha ha!”

But that would require class and poise.

Can you imagine an American politician, in Rudd’s shoes, taking a shot at Tasmania? It’s rude and foolish and, above all, just unnecessary.

I hope Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will remember that a Southern man don’t need him around anyhow.

The Aussies that I know here in Shanghai think it’s kind of funny and true! Australia started out as a penal colony for cryin out loud - they’re not Lords and Ladies down there!
