It's not that degree of importance to the story. Just a small moment

Well now I have more incentive to avoid it, since a very similar joke was done in Malibu's Most Wanted

I still have faith in your idea. Shit, so many times we come up with original ideas just to find out it's been done before. It really is poosible more than one person can have the same idea and the first to it should not always be the victor.

There's also a less important reason; I want to try to get this one into film festivals and I'm not sure if most festivals have policies against profanity (especially the most vile word ever)

I looked into it and at least SOME do.


So it's also sort of a producer decision for me

That jokes been done to death.

I like it when the joke is reversed. In Cabin Fever an old southern man says it, and you immediately think that he is an old racist bastard. The people who are offended are all white. The white people dwell on how racist the old man is. We're left to believe he intends to use a gun on black people. Which, would be terrible.

at the end of the movie it is set up and it turns out he's actually cool, he just uses offensive language. The black people seem indifferent as he shows them great hospitality. In fact the relationship of the old man is actually subservient. He talks about how he polished the phallic object for them.



It is almost like the origination of the "almost politically correct Redneck" meme.

Though any type of joke involving race is something to be careful about, and not careless about.

Well, it's not even a joke about race, it's a joke about a dude embarrassing himself.

I ended up finding something better to write though.
