Humour is an interesting subject because it means very different things to many people, some like toilet humour, fart jokes, etc, some like sarcasm
and dry wit, some like clean only stuff, some like pure filth, other like sex based and some do indeed like bad taste...
That's life (or not in some jokes), I myself like a wide variety of humour especially dry wit but you can run a fart joke by me happily and I'll laugh
like a drain. Does that make me strange, no, it makes me human.
People, especially Americans and Muslims must learn that humour is a very needed part of our being, humour keeps us from going mad, humour peps up our
spirits when we are down, humour can brighten up even the darkest situation when we are mentally drained or disturbed. You cannot claim to have off
topic subjects based on your feelings, you cannot impose your will on others or ban items, its human nature, deal with it.
Bad taste stuff will annoy but just let it be like water off a ducks back, if its not your cup of tea then ignore it, sometimes bad taste humour is
simply a way of dealing with something so unimaginable that the brain does not comprehend it, I doubt very much anyone finds the deaths of those
innocents funny, I don't but try sitting there and work out how it managed to happen and it will destroy you, sometimes the humour helps break that
Are there subjects that are taboo, probably not but timing is a key, people should be able to grieve, the saying "too soon?" is apt.
Before anyone jumps down my throat for mentioning Americans and Muslims directly let me explain, I chose those two because both exude a deep seated
belief of being the best of the best, radicals Muslims believe their religion is the ultimate one and must be forced upon people, righteous Americans
proclaims themselves the most powerful people on the planet and that the American way of life is as good as it gets, neither of these two like jokes
about them or their lifestyles but both ridicule others.
Sorry but the jokes actually on both of you, Radical Muslims are not following their religion, they are following a bastardised man made version, the
actual Koran tells its followers to EMBRACE other religions in a way of learning, it does not say to force yours on others, it simply says you should
teach people about it and if they like then they join, if not then you have done your part and move on.
The joke being there is that the radicals are following men who actually break every rule in that religion.
The same thing is happening in America, your leaders destroy your economy and kill your own with a sickening regularity, you are proud people and
rightly so but your so called leaders are anything but that.
So yes, both sides deserve some jokes about them, relax and let it happen, ignore what you don't like but if we ban humour it will be the start of
As long as you do the right thing based on decency, honour and respect then you have every right to hold your head high..
