    That’s the linchpin of the whole thing. Stuff White People Like is really just Stuff NPR Listeners Like.

    Speaking as a member of a “younger generation,” (22) I would say that Stuff White People Like is just not funny. It is not only a really familiar joke already, it is also totally uninspired. Maybe I’m already beyond getting anything out of it, maybe if I were more pimply I’d get it. Compare to Eddie Murphy’s 1970s SNL skits. The posts could almost be put together by manatees: “white people like bangs”?

    Some people take their humor way too seriously.
