In terms of Humor, if you can laugh at one group of people, but get offended by someone laughing at your group.. you're a hypocrite.
Nothing is off limits when it comes to Comedy. If you're offended, then so be it, but don't laugh at something that may offend someone else but not yourself. I laugh at anything I find funny, even things that "should" offend me.

For example, when the Benoit tragedy happened in 2007 (Chris Benoit, wrestler, killed his wife, son and himself), I took it hard because I have met Chris Benoit before and have admired his work since I was a kid; however, I laughed at jokes about the tragedy. Does that make me a bad person? Maybe, but hey.. if I'm going to Hell, I'm going to enjoy the ride there.

That's why I enjoy the Comedy Central Roast's so much - nothing is off limits there. Hell, Amy Schumur made a joke at Steve-O that involved Ryan Dunn, who just passed away. I laughed my ass off at it, and it wasn't even a jab at Dunn.

Comedy ftw. Butthurt people can g-t-f-o.

Insensitivity isn't funny, or cool, for that matter, but as far as humour goes, anything can count, I guess. I think a lot of potentially offensive jokes are funny, but I know that in order to laugh at other people, I have to be prepared to be laughed at myself. Holocaust jokes can be horrible, and I feel terrible terrible for laughing at them, but nothing is off limits. It depends on who you tell your jokes to. 9/11 jokes won't be hilarious to a victim's family, but to other people, it can be funny. It all depends on what floats your boat and what you've been through, I think. Other factors are involved too, obviously, and all things have to be said in good taste.

I know, then I realised I'd lost touch with a lot of people online, so I came back so I can feel less anti-social and possibly make new friends. I used to be in love with this place, and I guess I still am; it's only of the only forums I've ever felt at home at. Hi again, Alyssa :)

How is that not a compliment? Maybe it's a bit extreme to call every Asian vagina "loose". Maybe I'm wrong, how many here can fit a Rubik's cube in the vagina?

lol yeah hold on let me go find out
