Conan vs. Quebec

Reading over this story about Canadians who are upset about Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's bit in Quebec, I was struck by a few thoughts. First, it was damned funny, and when Triumph did the same thing to Star Wars fans, no one got their Yoda-patterned undies in a knot. Secondly, last time I checked, the French-Canadians are not a separate race, which would seem to be a requirement before they could label Triumph's comments as "racist". Thirdly, it's a friggin' puppet! And last, but not least, the irony of Francophones being upset at the rude behavior of an American is not lost on me.
