Well I did it again. If I just talk long enough I manage to offend everybody. From now on I'll stick to knock-knock jokes.

It's a gift Jude.
I do it all the time. Never satisfied with putting one foot in my mouth, always seems I try to see if I can fit both of them in. blush

I don't know what to say Jude. My response was genuine but I certainly don't think you meant offense. My "gift" (as Sentry puts it) is that I have a hard time knowing how to express myself in ways that doesn't shut everyone else down.

Humor seems like it should be light and easy, but its a deceptively complex issue. Humor is guided by our sense of what is normal vs, strange, accepted vs. outcast, and appropriate vs. taboo. All of those things can be linked to some pretty serious questions about reality and society. I personally think that having a joke forum is just asking for these kind of issues to pop up, maybe even more than if we just flat out had a "philosophy and politics" forum (I'm not suggesting that anyone start that, I'm saying even that would be safer than a humor forum because people would go into it knowing they were going to be butting up against very different perspectives rather than having it blind-side them). So if I see so much danger in the very concept of a humor forum maybe it was my mistake for not just ignoring this page completely. I certainly don't want you to feel I have anything against you, Jude.
