FINAL THOUGHT ABOUT PERSONAL NAMES IN JOKES:

I don't see the harm in replacing charactor names with know friends names in jokes to kid each other, the only draw back is that MANY of us who don't know you guys that well yet can be left in the dust and I can see how some people may see it as one member slamming another.

Any joke which needs a disclaimer or an explanation generally has a small audience, I like to think and hope that all jokes here are funny to everyone, not just a select few.

May I suggest the original post in HUMOR forum and PMing the doctored version to your friends it was aimed at. That way, everyone gets the joke, not just the 3 or 4 people involved.

Just trying to make everyone happy here, I'm still confused about the POLL by IDDEE though, he states in the poll:

I quit reading the jokes on another forum when they all were posted using members names as the characters in the jokes. I see that it has now spilled into this forum. Am I the exception, or do others dislike this procedure?

Followed by post 7 by Iddee:

I am not offended, nor do I think it is meant to be harmful. I just think it takes away from the original joke and distracts me from the joke's real meaning. I know most of the posters and the names used. All are great guys, just poking fun at each other. I just think the joke means more if my little one track mind only has to follow one subject.    rolleyes

Of course, as I said in the OP, it may just be my senile, old, grumpy ways. That's why I wanted more opinions.

There just seems to be a discrepency there. Both statements to me contradict each other a bit, so I wonder WHY the poll?

I hope we can all enjoy the joke WITHOUT years of background on WHY one member play this part in a joke and another member plays another. I hope (just for the rest of the members) you guys can keep an original version here in Humor and share any modified versions in private - it will surely cut out any confusion and feedback - thanks.

If one has never seen the joke before then one would not know the original name that belongs in the joke.

And think of all those jokes that get redirected because of who and where you are. For instance, around here we have Aggie jokes. That could be changed to redneck, hillbilly, Pollock, etc, etc.

Or the state jokes.... just depends on what state you're from.

The chocolates move because of the hidden roaches.... But really I don't see them moving.

Because my compliant is in the mode of writing, not the contents or intentions.

 Is is lite reeding postes with many wirds mispeled.

You have to think about what each word was meant to be, then go back and read the post for it's meaning. With the jokes, I am concentrating on the people, rather than the story, and it just makes it harder to read.

Maybe it's just my dumbness.

I know the guys and know it is all in fun, but it distracts from the readability of the joke. I was not trying to say it was derogatory toward the other person. I know it wasn't.

Brian, I have known BB on different forums for a long time. I have never seen him post an "offensive" post about anyone other than an idiot killing bees for the fun of it.

Your honor I plead guilty of this horrible act on the other forum.  Smiley However I can shed some light on this one. The picking on each other substituting names of other members came about when one of the mods on the other forum didnt want us picking on blondes and wanted us to raise the caliber of our jokes. To my knowlege no one was ever offended except for a few turtle lovers that didnt like Bullseye Bill's pet racing turtle thrown across the bar to out run the dog. grin Everyone used in the jokes was and still are friends. I dont specifically know of anyone using names of someone on the board that they was unfamiliar with in any joke.  I have refrained from posting any jokes here on beemaster until I get familiar with the members and they get familiar with myself. Then look out let the redneck humor fly.   evil Anyhow Iddee Speaking one redneck to another Glad to see ya here and if I ever offend you drop me a PM letting me know I ovestepped my bounds. WE can always agree to disagree and still walk away friends Wink

Iddee already knows this as I have posted it over there at BeeLiberal, but for those that don't know it, there is no beekeeper that I respect more than Iddee.  rainbow sunflower That's no joke. (Your up there too Bjorn)  Honestly Iddee, if substituting "A lady' with 'OKiequeenbee' made you loose the humor in the parrot joke you might need to adjust your diet.  My gut feeling is you are suffering from a bee venom withdrawal.  bee

And for Rat, my little redneck buddy, That was YOUR turtle joke! not mine!  I bet she still thinks I'm a turtle pitcher.  Smiley Long live PETA!

Feeling's mutual, BB, and you may just be 100% right. That's why I asked it in the first place. I wanted to know if it was just me.

It's not the only problem old age has brought on.   rolleyes

I just want you all to know that I love all of you   Kiss  and I find it kinda flattering to be included in your joke telling circle.  And if I was ever to find one of your jokes offensive, you would know (red headed thing).   whip
Iddee, I like the changing of names in the jokes, it makes it a new joke to me, lets my imagination run wild.   grin
Anyway, I hope no one gets offended cause I really need my daily fix of  lau lau lau

Dont worry no turtles was actually abused in the making of this joke. Bills pet turtle is just fine. He lost a little duct tape. Once that is replaced he will be ready to go again

I stand by my original comments.  I find the substituting of names disrespectful and rude.  I don't treat my friends that way.  I don't even like Pat and Mike jokes because of the names.  Titles like Rabbi, Priest, Lawyer, Farmer, Farmer's Daughter, etc, are impersonal and still gets the gist of the joke across.  But when names are used it becomes personal and that makes it unacceptable.

I personally believe we can enjoy the jokes more by leaving them impersonal and avoid the risk of offending somebody.

I actually found them to be even funnier because they were personalized. We usually poke fun at those we feel warm towards.
