well is the way i see thing.

you can talk about someone and make fun of them all you want as long as you bless there heart. heres a example:

say you know someone who is 1 sandwich short of a picknic (puttin it nicely) and they often make stupid comments. you can call them dingy, and stupid behind their backs as long as you say bless there heart.

i know some wont agree but hey it gets the job done and you wont feel bad about it later.

If you can't say it to a man or womans face... don't bother. Otherwise it's nothing more than concealed cowardice.

But that's coming from a man w/ a poor sense of humor who has been on the receiving end of jokes many a time.  Laughing at someones pain or humiliation is not what I would consider respectable.

If someone dealt w/ you in that way how would you react? That is the question I ask of anyone. Where I mod I have often told people to preview their post before they post it and ask themselves if someone talked to them that way would they be offended. Doesn't usually work, but it's an attempt.

Any joke can be taken too far; especially if the intent isn't to make the receipiant laugh but to injure.

For me it stems from a childhood where I was bullied and the butt of many a mean joke, one incident taught me that I could beat the tar out of the bullies and from that point on I did repeatedly. Oddly the jokes stopped, I still despised the people who had made them. I came to the realization that many jokes were made on my account because people thought there would be no repurcussions. When I proved them wrong, violently, it was of course my fault.

Going after someone behind there back is one thing, but putting them in the joke and including them in the laughter is something else; we all need to be able to laugh at ourselves and never take ourselves too seriously.

Have heard about this bit of Dixie charm. When a southern "lady" says "bless his/her heart," you know what's coming.

I'm overweight, so one might think that fat jokes bother me. They don't. I'm bald, so one might think that bald jokes bother me. They don't. However, if I was black, Polish, Italian, Jewish or whatever, and someone tells a joke that features a characteristic that someone has no control over, that crosses the line. I grew up in a time (and town) where such humor was not only accepted but celebrated. Of course, there were no blacks and very few Jews in my hometown.

Some might think that it's harmless to tell such jokes because, after all, they're just words. But behind those words lie stereotypes and prejudices that can wound tremendously. In spite of my non-religiosity, I believe the Golden Rule definitely applies here. Sometimes political correctness goes too far. Other times it hits the nail on the head.

Pulling His Cheney

George W. Bush ran into Colin Powell`s office exclaiming, "Dick Cheney hanged himself in his bathroom!"
Colin Powell says "Oh, No! Did you cut him down?"

"Cut him down?" asks George W. "How could I cut him down? He wasn`t dead yet!"

Bush's Favor

George W. Bush is sitting in a hotel lobby, planning his speech to a group of businessmen, when a little man walks up to him. "Excuse me, Mr. Bush, but my name is Steve Case, and I'm here with an extremely important client tonight. We're going to see your speech tonight, and it would be a great help to me if, when we walk by, you could impress him by saying, 'Hello, Steve'."
Bush readily agrees, and fifteen minutes later, the little man walks by, deep in conversation with his client.

Bush came up and said, "Hello, Steve."

The little man says, "Buzz off, Bush! I'm in a meeting," and keeps walking.

Genie and the Taliban

Three guys: a Canadian, Osama bin Laden, and Uncle Sam are out walking together one day. They come across a lantern and a genie pops out of it.
"I will give each of you each one wish. That's three wishes total," says the genie.

The Canadian says, "I'm a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada."

With a blink of the genie's eye, *POOF* the land in Canada was forever made fertile for farming.

Bin Laden was amazed, so he said, "I want a wall around Afghanistan, so that no infidels, Jews, or Americans can come into our precious state."

Again, with a blink of the genie's eye, *POOF* there was a huge wall around Afghanistan.

"Uncle Sam" (A former civil engineer), asks, "I'm very curious. Please tell me more about this wall."

The Genie explains, "Well, it's about 15,000 feet high, 500 feet thick, and completely surrounds the country; nothing can get in or out - it's virtually impenetrable."

Uncle Sam says, "Fill it with water."

I would just like to tell the young Americans that you can just say no to drugs. Just say no. Drugs are bad. Drugs are very bad. That is all. Of course, if I could tell them my side of the story, I would tell them that drugs are very refreshing. I was an addict when I was younger, and it attracts the ladies. I'm not just talking ladies either. I was popular after I smoked. I was cool. It was the one time in my life when I felt accepted.... oh... what? We're still on the air? Oh? Is that what that red glowing light means? Uh... WE ARE NOW EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES
