The Grand Bastardo makes a return to announce a new upcoming season. You've been warned.
Possibly NSFW if you have one of those workplaces that's all uptight about things like swearing. If this applies to your workplace you might want to keep the volume down, watch the video outside work hours, or maybe look for work in a place where the bosses don't have quite as large a stick up their collective ass.

you have a lot of strengths. Political correctness ain't one of them. ;-)

I think that we all have that part of our personality that has these kinds of thoughts.

And no sense in keeping them all bottled up inside - will just eat you up after a while

I agree. I'm about to go down the same politically incorrect road. Still trying to figure out how to do it without alienating half my friends and family.

When I meet someone and they want to hang out, I bring it up right away. So far, they think like me and it works out.

When I decided to start up The Grand Bastardo (and eventually open a second YouTube channel just for those videos) I just accepted that there would be a lot of people who will either ignore, downvote, or message me about it to give me grief. I pretty much decided that these videos would be to amuse me first and foremost, and if anyone else liked them, it would be a bonus.

That said, I do have "rules" that I follow to not give anyone ammunition against me.


- Mocking stereotypes is on the table. Flagrant racism, and homophobia are not.
- The joke has to be at least slightly more funny than it is horrible. Of you can get to or past the 50.1% funny/49.9% horrible ratio, the joke is viable. Run with it, and do not back down from the punchline.
- The more serious or profound your setup sounds, the harder the twist of the joke should be.
- Public figures have put themselves out there to be noticed and talked about, so jokes about them are never off limits.

In my case, I think it also helps that the main character is a robot. You can get away with more if the main character isn't meant to represent a real person, and especially not the writer. I actually did eventually make a character that looks about as close as I'll get to looking like me.

For example, something like this wouldn't be nearly as easy to get away with if I used my avatar character to deliver the punchline.
