Oh you definitely need to give the show a try! As you’ll see from the comments, everyone has an episode that clicks. For me, it was the intervention episode. Do yourself a favor, go pick any episode between season 3-6, then once you’re hooked start the series from the beginning

Lmao so you started with the very last season? Community starts dipping down in quality as the seasons go on but there is a solid spike at the end when yahoo picked it up for one season.

I always thought it would be funnier to embellish it.

"THE FOURTH REICH CLAIMS THIS FILTHY PUBLIC RESTROOM! Today, this toilet, tomorrow...ANOTHER TOILET! A thousand year scheißenreich!"

Same here I just don’t like people that destroy gas stations, Throw fits at McDonald’s like children and jump over the counter, Run into stores in mass to ruin the lives of small business owners or hypocritical pricks that hold you to a standard on racism then are blatantly racist themselves.

Except that’s mostly likely not a Nazi swastika; as far as I know, Nazis prefer to turn theirs on the diagonal. And no way would they put those short arms on it. So no racist worth their salt would style it like that.

Due to its orientation, this looks more like the Chinese character/word wan (meaning “immortality/infinity;” also, when appended to other auspicious characters, means “times 10,000”). Or perhaps the solar (clockwise) version from several flavors of Hinduism.

Come to think of it, it looks VERY much like the fylfot or “hammer of Thor” symbol with those shorter arms.

In any case, this person in their ignorance of history probably defaced a religious symbol.

It is not a proper Nazi symbol since it is not rotated 45 degrees. It is just a swastika. You can see the symbol in Hindu temples which mean good fortune.

Also, 99% isopropyl alcohol will get almost any marker off.

Someone near me spraypainted "GAY PEOPLE R NOT COOL" on a bridge so I just brought out my can of red spraypaint, crossed out the NOT and wrote SUPER above it.
