Yup, 'cept Michelle Wolf nailed it.


Without comedy these days we'd never get real news.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I've got some political ones too but usually that is a line that is not crossed here.

I try never to take life too seriously but this statement is somewhat paradoxical. Are you saying it's OK to offend women and minorities but not to offend religious or politic orientation? Not looking for a fight but that does seem a little patriarchal. Personally I think all should be fair game and everyone should be a target, but that's just how I am, I have learnt to laugh at myself harder than I laugh at others.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I can understand a64's comment as a member who happens to also be a moderator.

Politics and Religion lead the pack in the millions killed in their name.

Feelings run very deep in those two "beliefs" so it is wise advice to avoid stirring those bloody pots.

Just think of the fate of Charlie Hedbo.
If you are inciting riots thru your satire, is it still funny?

Yep, you can't go around offending the majorities, it ain't cricket...

(it's a joke)




No, really it is!

Since 4 of the 10 most active moderators are women I would have to say it's not so much patriarchal as parental. You should be more careful about what pejoratives you try to sling at folks.

Settle petal, it was directed at an individual, not a policy or group.

Re: The New Joke Thread

So you were trying to insult a specific member with that pejorative rather than just using the term carelessly?

Re: The New Joke Thread

Take it easy, No Ties, patriarchal and parental are both merely descriptive, although wife beating is more common in patriarchal than matriarchal societies.

Re: The New Joke Thread

We once had a pig named Petal....

She was very active, and difficult to settle, and had an unfortunate habit of rolling on and crushing her newborn piglets.

Whenever I see the phrase, "settle, petal", I am reminded of her for some reason.

Apropos of nothing at all.....

Whatever, don't let comprehension and context get in the way of bludgeoning me. Anybody that reads an insult into what I wrote needs to get their feet back on the ground.

Umm... what pejorative? I can't see much of an attack of any sort in No Ties post.

And really, if someone finds these jokes offensive, they can read some other threads. Of course, some of those other threads have been declared offensive by the catamaran folks, and the spade rudder folks, and the Rocna folks, and the anti-firearms folks, and the ketch folks, and...

Offense, like beauty, lies in the eye of the offended!

Re: The New Joke Thread

Politics and religion are generally held to be analogous with the patriarchy but some chicks are just too dumb to see it.

Sounds good Jim, but does that mean we should simply turn a blind eye to every critical statement crafted in the name of humor?

I think not, as it would quickly break down social constructs of compassion and protection of the identity and feelings of individuals

We have this concept of "restraint" formulated on the idea that nothing good comes from an excessive beating down of others. (even when done with a feather)
