The Genius of “Stuff White People Like”

True work of genius: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/
I think that this website explains one major problem with the turing test thought experiment.

The Turing test is a proposal for a test of a machine‘s ability to demonstrate intelligence. It proceeds as follows: a human judge engages in a natural language conversation with one human and one machine, each of which tries to appear human. All participants are placed in isolated locations. If the judge cannot reliably tell the machine from the human, the machine is said to have passed the test.

I think that if a computer was programmed with the lessons and responses taught in this blog, the computer would not even pass the turing test, but would probably be considered more interesting than the real human being.  That frightens me quite dearly.
