A+ Paint skills.
I am ready for the ensuing title of butthurt, but I just wanted to say this. Also, note I'm not saying it's impossible people will laugh at your content, just that it's going to have to be incredibly funny for them to do so. (That's when it becomes a "see you all in hell" kind of laugh).
Also, bring me all the read thumbs you want, I'm building a garden retaining wall and there's nothing quite so solid as a good stack of red thumbs.
Just kidding, I use them sexually.

We seen enough posts about the Boston marathon asking
too soon?" that I feel compelled to answer the question:
in When is it too seen to make jokes about a tragedy?
N Technically, never. But only technically.
In keeping with the ideal of free speech, no time or subject for
a joke is out of bounds. That gees for terrorism, murder, rape,
suicide, etc. So yes, you can do this:
Hey guys, did yeu hear-
eheut' the Easter: '
fwd I was a reel . t! Tallk
Unfortunately for you, your joke is going to have to be so
funny it will cause people to forget their horror at the subject.
The greater the seriousness of the topic, the
funnier the joke haste be to overcome this effect.

So unless your joke is unbelievably funny that it will
physically cause people' s lungs to burst from their ribcages
like a nascent alien, yearning for fresh air -
then you probably shouldn' t expect your joke to get this -
instead of this:

Seth: DDL did a great job getting into Lincoln's head... but you know who to this day did the best job of it? John Wilkes Booth.   
   
Crowd: ooooooooooh.

are you saying poop is not funny
User avatar #38 to #36 - delphine (04/17/2013) [-]
No, I think they're saying poop is ALWAYS funny, hence the joke doesn't have to be very good for people to laugh at it....

...poop. hehehe.

frontpage says otherwise

As to the graph.. "Hehe, poop". That should about do it.

It was the red thumb "doink" that made me laugh. Because I laughed, you get a thumb. Well done.

I spent half a minute looking at it trying to figure out in what many ways it was wrong. There were a lot of ways.

your graph is terrible..mufasa's death is never funny
User avatar #23 - spearpwi (04/16/2013) [-]
The problem with some twats is that they are so worried about legal and illegal that they never stop to think about whether it is right or wrong.
So many ass holes are constantly trying to shock the world with their freedom to say stupid, infantile and, above all, offensive **** and they never stop to think about how it affects other people.

I think it's the other way round. The kids trying to look all edgy by laughing at the Boston jokes will outweigh the white knights by far, resulting in a ******* of thumbs for every Boston joke.

(I don't really care either way)

You don't get it.

We aren't TRYING to make people laugh.

We're trying to get overly sensitive people on the internet to get angry when they witness something that is an absolute certainty and inevitability. People mocking tragedy on the internet. If you're offended, then we won. If you're not, oh ******* well.
#13 to #12 - mrfistsalad (04/16/2013) [-]
Understandable. That actually makes perfect sense then. You're right, the jokes are in no way funny. Not that I'm offended, they're just... bland. Bad puns and whatnot.

And yeah, my heart legit goes out to the victims.
