Not a song, but still another entry in our fine old catalog of comedy that nowadays would have the PC-minded bearing down on you faster than a truck full of tortillas on Cinco de Mayo.

Stereotypes and Cliches
The guy was pretty funny back when one could do skits and jokes without the bleeding heart, tree hugging, pinko, uberPC watchdogs climbing all up in your butt.
Wow! Surprising little on YouTube for Jose (Bill Dana). I expected to find a whole raft of stuff as he did have his own TV sitcom for a while.

Speaking of politically incorrect humor, try out this old Jack Benny/Mel Blanc dialogue:

I remember Dana completely differently. To each his own.
When I was a kid, I found his schtick unbearable (How many times can you leave them rolling in the aisles by repeating "My name Jose Jimenez"?). I thought he was an actual Mexican playing to a stereotype, pandering to white audiences (or maybe is was just to a laugh track). I later found out he wasn't Hispanic at all, which just made his routine that much more questionable.
Apparently he wrote for Don Adams and Get Smart, so he was obviously able to produce stuff I liked. Go figure.

Shame on you Ms Patty! You should express yourself better. Maybe you should try something much less offensive like,
"The PC police have a natural tendency to exert a negative air pressure on the engorged organ of an equus hemionus."
Much more acceptable in all circles.

Well that is exactly what I said Expat!
