Why the Bruno Mars/Red Hot Chili Peppers Super Bowl Halftime Show Was Painful to Watch

For all of those fortunate enough to catch the Keyboard Cat playing Bruno Mars during the halftime of the Puppy Bowl on Sunday, I envy you.

It was just so unbelievably politically correct that it hurt to watch.
