"Nipplegate: The Exciting Conclusion."

"Huzzah! Facebook reversed the ban on our cartoon!" — writes Robert Mankoff in and of The New Yorker. Facebook censored a cartoon that appeared in The New Yorker. Too much tit! But it's okay now. It was The New Yorker. Come on!

Thank you President Obama for protecting us from the New Theocrats of the GOP.

In America, we don't denigrate female nipple bulges.

Denigrate: "to treat or represent as lacking in value or importance; belittle; disparage."

Especially it's bad to be little.

I think that we need to decide if the cartoon was well done or not, if it passes some artistic test, before we agree it is a free speech candidate.

Because it certainly is offensive to food fetishists. And it's a pretty sad excuse for a drawing, too.

That was a really bad cartoon. Not worth the effort to click through.

I'm sure there's lots worse stuff on Facebook.

Like most of what's there.

"Because it is not me that has been exposed, but you!

For I have seen the nipple on your soul!"
