    A woman walks into the downtown welfare office, trailed by 15 kids...

    WOW," the social worker exclaims,"are they ALL YOURS"

    "Yep they are all mine," the flustered momma sighs, having heard that
    question a thousand times before. She says, "Sit down Leroy."

    All the children rush to find seats.

    "Well," says the social worker, "then you must be here to sign up. I'll
    need all your children's names."

    "This one's my oldest - he is Leroy." "OK, and who's next?"

    "Well, this one he is Leroy, also."

    The social worker raises an eyebrow but continues. One by one, through the
    oldest four, all boys, all named Leroy. Then she is introduced to the
    eldest girl, named Leighroy!

    "All right," says the caseworker. "I'm seeing a pattern here. Are they ALL
    named Leroy?"

    Their Momma replied,! "Well, yes-it makes it easier. When it is time to get
    them out of bed and ready for school, I yell, 'Leroy!'

    An' when it's time for dinner, I just yell 'Leroy!' an' they all comes
    arunnin.'

    An' if I need to stop the kid who's running into the street, I just yell
    'Leroy' and all of them stop. It's the smartest idea I ever had, namin'
    them all Leroy."

    The social worker thinks this over for a bit, then wrinkles her forehead
    and says tentatively, "But what if you just want ONE kid to come, and not
    the whole bunch?"

    "I call them by their last names."

    Put your hood back on, your elite whiteness is blinding everyone. I heard a good one about, "why are black people always on welfare and the only ones overpopulating this planet, why don't they just go back to..." Oh yeah this is a carnivorous plants forum not the Grand Brotherhood of the Old South convention!

    Its obvious that the joke was about black chicks. 15 kids? All named Leroy? On welfare? It's a pretty racist joke.
    My life sucks

    i didn't think it was racist, leroy isn't a black name and any woman can have 15 kids. i know alot of white people on welfare (well not personally, but they are out there).

    This's a matter of the messenger being shot. I don't think Josh considered the fact that it could be construed as racist.

    Then again, we could just as easily turn around and call people who find it racists racists themselves for even thinking along those lines- See how futile the whole matter is?

    Let it go, folks. Offense was not the intent. I stand by my original Goofy.

    Thank you Est and Clint. Had I known it would have been taken in offense I wouldn't have posted it. Because a matter of fact my wife just watched a show on discovery where this Mormon couple was pregnant with number 14 or 15. So I wasn't even thinking along those lines of it being a black or white thing. There are big families of every color,and I choose not to even entertain the idea of the stereo type. If everyone forgot about it the stereotype would not exist.

    Can I take my hood back off and put it away now? It's not a very good image. Also why would I want to wear all white? I wouldn't want to look like a giant marsh mellow.

    Oh and the fact that you considered Leroy a black name. It may be a stereotypical black name, but the fact of the matter is the only Leroy I know personally is an Ortho Doc I work with and he is an Older white guy.
