I wonder....

All the people who were chortling at all the gorilla memes are just appalled at the alligator memes? Why? Because one child was black and lower class and one was white and upper class? One's parents were uneducated with criminal backgrounds and the other's were highly educated professionals? One escaped alive and the other didn't, but both were equal in their possible tragic outcomes?

Would you have been as appalled if the little black boy had been ripped to shreds by the gorilla? Or would you have still giggled at the memes? I'm willing to bet most of you would have still found the humor.

Get real people. Black humor matters.

Meanwhile, British boffins have announced that inappropriate humor is a sign of mental illness. Oh, well.

Yes but, smartass has 'ass' in it, which creates the first syllable in the word 'asshole'.
I know this because I is one of each as I am regularly reminded.

I'm good with it, too.

Schadenfreude. Embrace it. Let it become you. Touch your inner (Pre-Unification) German.

Yes.

No - laughing at dead kids isn't something people with self respect usually do.

Nice way to play the race card.

Black humor is like food, not everyone gets it.

A lot of times, when certain people get under my skin, I just tell them to fuck off. And after they fuck off, continue fucking off. Keep fucking off until you get back here again...then fuck off some more.

Listen, schaeden is the only freude we're getting these days so of course we should enjoy it.


I wouldn't say everything is funny, I would say that humor can make the worst things a little less horrible.

In one instance the kid survived, in the other a little boy died horribly.
Kind of like seeing a person slip on the ice and fall, it's funny if they get up rubbing their sore spot, not so funny if they can't get up and get carried away on a stretcher.
Personally, I'd shoot the gorilla and any gator anywhere near where kids are. I have no problem killing an animal to protect a human, no matter how stupid the human behaved.

MISS LISA, LASS YOUR ASS HAS NO ASS.

For those of you who can't handle dark humor, take my advice. Stay away from First Responders, ER personnel, and reporters. When you wade up to your ankles in gore, you develop a very dark sense of humor to keep from going insane.

Lisa Lane said...

MISS....YOU ARE CRASS, AND CORRECT ABOUT THIS LASSES ASS HAVING NO ASS!

I have a bad reputation for my dark humor. I stay away from funerals for a reason that has naught to do with aversion to death. Well, maybe my own death.
Simple fact, 100% of us will die.
Is getting eaten by a gator a horrible way to go? Try cancer, months of agony, some times years. Children as well as adults die that way. Talk to some one with terminal cancer, once they accept it, they have a ton of bad jokes to share with you.
All that said, Angel, I'm ashamed of you. You posted near on a dozen gorilla jokes but only one gator meme.

Lisa, when a guy has no ass, its usually because he worked it off. The other option is he doesn't work, and its broke. That would not apply to Kenny.

humor, in all forms, is one of the better ways to deal with life...keep it up, Wise Angel One....

and, Miss Lisa, is your Ass's ass deficiency entirely the product of hard work, or is it also the result of your dental devouring??

Nah, she'd chewed it. I'm pretty lazy.
