Introducing Kanye West, pre-eminent comedian and light, frilly jokemaker

Meet the new face of “poking fun”.
The noted socially-responsible, orphan-adopting, AIDS-research financing, poverty-reducing, and Chilli-fucking R&B musician Usher on Kanye West’s “outburst” last week:

“And the R+B star, who will be among performers appearing on an MTV telethon tonight (10SEP05), states, ‘I wasn’t mad at Kanye’s statement – that’s his opinion – but it’s obviously not the opportunity or the time to poke fun or appoint blame.'”

Emphasis added, because, of course, you can’t speak in boldface. Well, you can, but then you’d be a liar, as opposed to an idiot.
