Thank-you to Mods: Splitting the Jokes Thread

I hope it's OK to comment on this. I didn't want to pollute the joke threads, and I know bad-mouthing the mods is unwelcome here. I hope it's OK to thank them though. If not, I won't be offended if this thread is deleted.

I appreciate the effort to come to a compromise to save the joke thread. No solution will satisfy everyone, but splitting it into two threads is a reasonable approach which I think can work, if we can all keep our indignation in check.

I thought I would have to totally ignore the political joke thread. I'm looking for a laugh, even if it's at the expense of my own political views. What doesn't work for me is childish name-calling in the guise of humor.

I did find both of those things in the political jokes thread, but I'm mature enough to enjoy the former and skip over the latter. In other words, for me, this new approach is working.

Thank you!!!

It is ALWAYS OK to thanks us.

Some folk like to waltz, others like to Line Dance. It never worked having them on the same dance floor. There are now two avenues and everyone can choose the one that works for them.

While jokes (and dancing ) are not the main business of CF, the joke(s) thread is extremely well visited and we hope you will find a laugh or two in one or the other or both of them.

At the end of the day, it is the members (and the way they post) who make CF work.

Reminds me of a little joke actually.



How the hell do politicians sleep at night?

Well, first they lie on one side. Then they lie on the other side. Then they lie on the first side again, then they…

It's unfortunate that certain other "extremely well visited" but " not the main business of CF" threads that have been closed could not have had such imaginative thinking applied to them, such as the suggestion made in this post.
