It's either brilliant or a brick

Demonstrating once again that satire is in the eye of the beholder, witness the new Cartoon Network offering Minoriteam. From their site:

"Minoriteam is a group of superheroes that uses the overwhelming power of racial stereotypes to defeat their most sinister and racist enemy, the evilest villain of them all...the White Shadow."

Your heroes are lead by "Dr. Wang," the wheelchair-bound math wizard with a gigantic head (to hold his gigantic brain, natch), and your villains include "Standardized Test" and "Corporate Ladder." couldn't get more on the nose if you were a block of cartilage.

Full disclosure: haven't watched it myself yet. Check that link above for the next broadcast date.

Satire pervades the web, seeping into mailboxes and mainstream news like a spilled cup of coffee. It stains and it won't go away.
