Its more like,when did people become little ******* and cant take a joke?

Best Answer

After a start like that, I would have a hard time laughing.

Best Answer

If all jokes started like that...I wouldn't ever laugh again.

If I hear someone prefacing a joke with, "I mean no disrespect" or saying afterwards, "I'm just kidding!" it's likely that the 'joke' is just a passive-aggressive way to insult someone else. If it's really a joke and the person telling a joke around friends, there's no need to clarify.

I mean more something like...if I said this Joke to you:
"If my mom’s arms were dinosaurs, they’d be tricepaflops... "
And you turn around and say "wow, you really shouldn't speak about your mom that way...Having loose skin under your arms at her age is normal, you might cause her to develop an eating disorder. Really, my word, I think you should apologize to your mom asap"
Know what I mean? Sometimes people are so wound up, they lose a little bit of laughter they could have enjoyed because everyone is so worried about offending each other.
Sometimes, it's good to laugh at ourselves and each other without causing or taking offense.

That is the most benign joke, aside from the interrupting cow joke... which does not translate well into text. :)

I've noticed that people tend to freak out small things when the big things in their life are falling apart.
For example, I have friends that have experienced great loss (mom and dad died on the same night, siblings, husband, child, etc) who have told me that they became irrationally angry when they saw others going about their daily lives as if nothing had happened. It's common for those going through the grieving process to want the loss they are feeling to be felt by EVERYONE.
You are essentially saying the same thing from the opposite point of view: you consider those who do not appreciate your humor to be thin-skinned idiots and creeps. You, essentially, want EVERYONE to find something funny when you do.
My advice to everyone: have some patience, have some compassion, and understand that people react to things not logically but emotionally. Even the nicest person is likely to snap on a bad day.

Since everyone decided it was COOL to be a victim.<br />

I'm gay, transgender, hearing impaired, and autistic. <br />
<br />
I'm disappointed when people don't joke at all the material I give them. <br />
<br />
And you know what, because I have a sense of humor about who and what I am, people don't tend to bother me, and if they do, I tend to have a sense of humor about THEM too. ;)

LOL well look first of all I dont think effective jokes jokes come in politically correct version :).<br />
<br />
That being said, yes there is such a thing as being sensitive to your respective audience.<br />
For example, a Black / African American person is permitted to use the word n****r to folk of same ethnic background (ask Oprah or Chris Rock :).<br />
Now, if a Caucasian/White person would dare utter this, it would be a great insult and affront. <br />
We know this. <br />
This has to do with the historic connotations of the word and how it was used THEN and by whom. <br />
<br />
So yes, there has to be a modicum of common sense/political corectness when dispensing jokes.<br />
<br />
*I think the best jokes must be catered to the audience; with enough bite and sufficent tact. <br />
If we are all laughing at each other and our selves, its a win win :D*

Best Answer

Sad, isn't it?

Best Answer

It's certainly NOT Funny, that people are so uptight. that's for sure. Provided it's a funny that comes from a lighthearted place, I think it's a great way to create a smile.
