Passed humour a long time ago on the road and continued right on into offensive and juvenile.

A certain theory of humor is that it is based on the need to distance yourself from the suffering of others, and therefore ALL jokes contain someone who is the butt of the joke. Don't believe it? Think up a joke which DOESN'T feature someone getting hurt, embarassed, or suffering some misfortune. This doesn't include puns, because with puns everyone shares equally in the pain
In other words, if it weren't offensive, it wouldn't be funny.

There's distancing yourself from a situation, and then there is offensive. I guess maybe you think starving children are funny (Ethiopia). I tell alot of jokes and most of them aren't clean, I agree, but to be honest, with this as a military forum, I would think these are jokes that might get told in the army, or some such place. So if I stumble upon this site, see these jokes with an American flag beside them, what am I going to think. There are plenty of ignorant American jokes out there (besides making fun of John Wayne), but I wouldn't post them here, because there are lots of Americans that might not like them.

And as for it being spring time, I didn't notice up here in Canada, stuck in my igloo, without any money, cause I'm not American. But I do have universal health care, and for the most part people are either neutral towards us or slightly positive, so I'll take that.

"It is no virtue to lack the strength of will to do evil." I think Robert A. Heinlein said this. I just like the sound of it! 8)
