Which part of "The History of White People in America" is the funniest? I don't know, but a real hoot is when the teacher asks the students about their family history: the non-white students have entire stories to tell, while the white suburban boy says "Uh, first we lived on this street, then on that street." So yes, Martin Mull's mockumentary is part jab at air-head Caucasoids, part jab at self-righteous studies of certain ethnic groups. But no matter how you look at it, this is one of the funniest mockumentaries that I've ever seen. It truly does help us understand what European-Americans have contributed to our country (if we took the approach that we take to blacks, Hispanics, etc). Really hilarious.
Yeah, that yarmulke/Yamaha is something else.
