Viscous racism: a form of sticky gelatinous racism.  Hence the childhood
phrase, "I'm rubber, you're glue.  Whatever you say bounces off me and
sticks to you."

Jimmy Jung refers to "some of the Christians" in a MV production as
"viscous racists." Is this condition caused by exposure to paste-ies?

I have just been to see the Bell Shakespeare Company's production of
'The Merchant of Venice' at the Athenaeum Theatre here in Melbourne,
Australia. I won't post the full review here in order to save space, but
you're welcome to have a look at it at
