Embarrassed, Ashamed, and Pissed Off

RECEIVED Wed., June 20, 2012

Dear Editor,
    I drove home from the Paramount on Tuesday night in silence, feeling embarrassed, ashamed, and quite pissed off [following the Dave Chappelle performance].
    The vague questions and severely outdated movie quotes were almost as disrespectful (and annoying) as the shouts comprised of unambiguous words like the current year, a city, his name, and the college you clearly didn’t learn any manners at while attending.
    As an audience member, I would like to formally apologize to Mr. Chappelle. Sorry we wasted your time. Sorry we claim to love you, but have not figured out what that means. Sorry we transformed the area beyond the stage into a room full of drunken idiots at a UT pep rally, circa 1998.
    And, to those I described in paragraph two: I have never wanted to see a stand-up comedian more than I wanted to see Dave Chappelle, and will likely never get to again. Thanks, dipshit.
