    Because its the media. Why is there any kind of uproar? Because the media contols it and most people are too stupid to think for themselves.

    I've heard it said that attorneys live on the bank account side of real life tragedy.

    My girlfriend works with children with serious behavioral issues, many caused by sexual assault. I made a joke after penn state scored last night and their fans were cheering. I said that they must have seen another pedophile get off scot free. She was pretty ****ed.

    Unless they were in the Holocaust yes they are. We Jews tell them all the time.

    One of the better ones I have heard, and this was from a survivor of the camps:
    I want to be cremated. Yeah, I know that's against the Jewish religion, but that's what I want, so I can be scattered in the sea, just like my parents were in WWII.


    Yep.

    Yes, indeed. If one tells a joke like that...it has to make the audience laugh their butt off AND cringe. Not just the latter. The guilty "ohhhhhhh, dammmmmmm" sorta reaction.

    I hope so because it was real amateurish. It's like something you'd hear on Rush or Michael Savage -- just stupid and mean.

    It would fascinate me to see a documentary that followed a comic developing her set, from the scrawls on napkins all the way through the finished, polished show. I'd love to see the craft side of the profession.

    I love "laugh and you're going to hell" jokes. I laugh. A lot.

    Ditto. The other day, someone handed me a handbasket and said, "Have a nice trip." Not sure what they meant by that; I don't have any PTO coming up....

    I think the power of the Awful Joke is the agreement among everyone who gets it that people who actually think that way are monsters. It's an acknowledgement that there really are terrible people in this world, and we're all in the fight against them together. It's like the gallows humor of barracks and fox holes. It's where people come face to face with the fact that the moral standards we have are never going to save a kid or stop a hate crime, that is completely up to us. It's what Sartre was saying in Existenialism is a Humanism: there is no good but what we will into the world so we had better not blanche at the hell and the pain of this world, we had better understand it, and above all we had better not sit back on our haunches and wait for authority or law or god to protect us from evil, because it's just you and me, friend. Now drink your shot and let's go over the top.

    There are very few moments of authentic being. Laughter is the last thing untouched by hypocrisy.

    You might not think the joke is funny but there is nothing wrong with the content. George Carlin said way worse...

    If CK hadnt torpedoed his career by being a disgusting creep 3/4 of the people offended by this home wouldn't even care.
    Truth, but I'm still going to call you out for "bothsides-ing" the issue.

    When I was young and dumb, I used to get a kick out of this "edgy" joke. Given the current state of events, I no longer do.
