Ginger Kids

A comment last week from a coach to a reporter has put the spotlight on red-heads, aka gingers.  "Has there ever been a red-headed quarterback in the NFL who’s really done well?" he reportedly asked.

Having produced my very own ginger, I found myself actually listening to the sports talk radio conversation about the subject.  While their discussion about how people would feel if the coach had asked a similar question about African Americans or any other group of people was certainly interesting, I was mostly intrigued by the clips from South Park playing as random soundbytes. 

Although I can't claim to have never watched South Park, I'm not a regular viewer, and I definitely missed this episode which includes the following statements:

"Ginger kids are born with a disease which causes very light skin, red hair, and freckles.  This disease is called 'Gingervitis' and it occurs because ginger kids have no souls.  Kids with gingervitis cannot be cured."

"Because their skin is so light, ginger kids must avoid the sun, not unlike vampires."

Watch it here if you don't mind the language.  (Only two swears if you're counting...)

  Well I have to say I thought it was HILARIOUS!

But, I do have to disagree, because I think my little batman-cape-wearing, stool-pushing ginger is absolutely adorable.
