Mad Hungarian Learns of Another Protected Group

His antics (combined with first class talent) made Al Hrabosky, a.k.a. the Mad Hungarian, fun to watch as a relief pitcher back in the 1970s. He is still an entertaining guy, thanks to his sense of humor. But his fellow sports analysts are not amused:

During the postgame show on Wednesday night, Hrabosky offered up a “suggestion” for St. Louis’ broadcast team which was to change their hotel room to the bottom floor because they “might jump” if they’re staying on a higher floor.

The 9–16 St Louis Cardinals are not doing as well as when Hrabosky was on the team during his heyday.

The co-host handled the horrendous, unfunny joke in stride, but you could tell she was definitely annoyed by Hrabosky’s remarks.

Apparently suicides are yet another protected group. Why not? Protected status is awarded on the basis of being perceived as defective, and wanting to kill yourself is certainly a defect.

The Outkick story scolds Hrabosky for whole paragraphs and then ends with this:

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling or messaging 988.

Behold the Mad Hungarian’s thought crime:

Let’s hope his broadcast career survives.

This is why comedy usually isn’t funny anymore. You can have moonbattery or you can have a sense of humor; you can’t have both.

On a tip from Wiggins.
