spinoff thread from: (Not) the management.
« on: February 01, 2011, 01:23:05 PM »
        It seems that almost any joke can find it's way into offending someone, whether it's a little or a lot; because the components for "Joke"usually mean that someone is surprised/duped/shocked - and someone else surprises/wins/shocks. The solution has been in front of us for millennia - Jokes which include human beings are GOING to offend someone to some degree. Given the recently invented "right not to be offended" the solution must be implemented forthwith - post haste - ex post juris nauseam - ad vomitora: All Jokes shall now be required to replace as their characters, BLOCKS OF WOOD and ROCKS. Sincerely - me.

     ...So this chunk of Mexican Ironwood and 2 chunks of Iraqi sandstone are in an Irish bar hitting on some Georgia Peachwood from a trailer park when a flake of San Francisco tiger's eye  rolls in...

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I think if your goal is to sanitize jokes,

You are in polluted purgatory without a proper means of location.

I forgot to include some degree of misdirection as a setup element in most jokes too.  :buttkick:

I did a joke about spiders and it ended up with five pages of bickering  :idunno:

Since there are no longer any Hittites jokes about them should offend no one.   

So there were these two Hittites, Ole and Lena....
