KILLING RETARDS
“Big whup,” you say. “They made a joke and it became real.” “Wow.” “I’m so scared.” “Woooooh.” “I’m shaking in my boots.” “What is this Halloween?” Etc. Well, try this, what if the boys made a joke about a retard being executed and then that happened? Scared yet?

KILLING RETARDS
“Big whup,” you say. “They made a joke and it became real.” “Wow.” “I’m so scared.” “Woooooh.” “I’m shaking in my boots.” “What is this Halloween?” Etc. Well, try this, what if the boys made a joke about a retard being executed and then that happened? Scared yet? When Mr. Show reunited to do a live tour in 2002, they did a skit wherein a guy is too retarded to be executed so scientists and doctors work around the clock to get his IQ high enough to enable a death sentence. It works. The accused gets so smart he realizes what he did was wrong and actually becomes a pretty likable guy. Then they kill him. Sorry but that was the deal.
Three years later Daryl R Atkins made the front page of The New York Times because learning about his trial had raised his IQ from 59 (11 below retard) to about 75 (5 above retard). Though he began his trial too retarded to die he ended it so un-retarded he died. Fans of Mr. Show may have enjoyed the hilarity of making people smart enough to kill, but fans of Mr. Atkins weren’t so impressed.
Mr. Show: 1 Reality: 1
