That's only politically incorrect by today's comedy standards. In the late eighties/early nineties (can't remember when the original Sam & Max game came out), that was perfectly tolerable zany humor. It's only recently that the human race as a whole completely lost its ability to laugh at itself and took any reference to existing cultures or belief systems as offensive. I agree with the Telltale guys when they said in the Season One commentaries that Sam & Max are "emotionally stuck in the eighties" and that it's a good thing. *laughs*
