1. Going through the possibilities...

Don't, wear black people!
Don't wear, black people!
Don't wear black, people!

7. reaction:

Don't, wear black people!
Hopelessly racist. You should be tombstoned for typing that.


Don't wear, black people!
Not a nudist myself, but I admire your commitment to integration.


Don't wear black, people!
So now you hate emos too?

2. I can't wear black people anyway. They're as heavy as any other race of people. I'm not that strong.

3. If they're very young ...

... they're not as heavy. You can balance one on your shoulders.

4. Well, I used to be able to. I have trouble with a cat on my shoulders now.

 

Hell, I used to be able to lift my wife over my head. She hasn't gotten any heavier. My back has gotten, well, crushed if you will. Fortunately, the disks are still okay, but the vertebrae are shattered. I lost 4" in height in two years. That's way better than losing the disks, but it does restrict what you can do. She won't even let me on a step stool anymore. On the plus side, I can still screw.

5. Time to eat grandma!

 

One comma could have spared our family from the horrors of accidental cannibalism.

We'll never get her back.

And though delicious, that proved to be a small conciliation as we are almost out leftovers.

9. Don't feel too badly...

I mean, what else could you do with her after she got run over by that reindeer walking home from your house Christmas Eve?

10. It's what she would have wanted

 

I mean, she said "stop please no don't do this, you're monsters", but I could tell in her heart of hearts she was proud of us.

6. I gotta say, even without the comma it's good advice.

I mean, you shouldn't make clothes out of anybody of any race, of course, but the statement by itself really is a policy I can't argue against.

8. Not so much

grammar as proper punctuation, maybe.

as in, "Let's eat, Grandma!"

as opposed to "Let's eat Grandma!"

although Grandma just might be finger lickin' good...
