Often times there is a fine line between funny and offensive. Personally, it takes a hell of a lot to offend me. I’m too busy living my life to take the time to be offended by something that I don’t necessarily agree with. Anywhoos, below are some examples of very similar things with very different LOL levels:
AIDS: Not funny at all.
The first AIDS monkey: Really funny. Why is the first AIDS monkey funny? Because all monkeys are hilarious-regardless of their sexual promiscuity. They eat bananas and bugs off their besties. Totally 100% badass. Plus also, we got AIDS from a monkey.
9/11: Absolutely not funny.
Osama bin Laden living in a cave: Supremely funny. He lives in a cave. He orchestrated the largest terror attack in American history from a cave. He still lives in a cave. We have the ability to clone our god damn house pets but we can’t find a man who lives in a cave. Everything about that is funny.
People dying in car accidents: There is nothing funny about that.
Sticking accelerators: Funny. I think if I were designing a car one of the first questions I would ask is how do I make it move and how do I make it stop? Seems pretty fucking basic to me, but shit what do I know? I’m just a girl with a blog who thinks the first AIDS monkeys is funny.
When I fall down: Negative funny.
Watching other people fall down: So funny it’s really one of my favorite things about being alive.
