Inside Ursula Hitler's Head 25: U B Illin'
Mr. Meany meets one of his ongoing foes, the idiot Lego rapper Badd Doggy P. There are some funny lines, but now I think the focus of the satire is a little unclear. Who am I really going after, here? Untalented rappers? UC Irvine students named Dylan?
I was really concerned - too concerned, as it turned out - that people would take this as a racist thing. Maybe it sounds silly, but when you've got a name like mine you have to be very careful about this kind of stuff. After including a character like this who is such a broad parody of hip-hop cliches, I kind of feel like all of my future black characters should be neurosurgeons and astronauts.
