Like, I saw this one Freddy vs. Jason.

Do you guys know that one?

[scattered cheers]

It's pretty awesome.

The director is here.

Just sit there--Freddy's sitting there.

"It's good."

'Cause he's got--

But it's, you know, it's Freddyfrom Nightmare on Elm Street

versus Jasonfrom Friday the 13th, like fi--

Why'd it take us so longto put them in the same room?

They're not gonna get along.

Alpha males,there's gonna be a battle.

It's not like they'replaying Uno, you know?

'Cause Freddycan't hold cards.

And Jason cheats at Monopoly.

He's just a monster,you know?

But it's a fun movie,but there's a part in it

where Freddy has to choosebetween killing a white girl

and killing a black girl,

and Freddy goes,"How sweet, dark meat."

Yeah.

Then he goesafter the black girl,

which is not surprising,given what he's just said.

But there was, like,a groan from the audience

in the theaterwhen I watched it.

Like, people were disappointedin Freddy Krueger.

Like, "We're finewith you murdering children

"with your needle gloves.

"But racism?

"Not up in here.

Uh-uh!"
