# Yes
and a merry Christmas to their families too.

Okay, I don't mind jokes about tragedies, but please, if you're going to point at dead peop0le do it for a reason beyond 'ooh! dead people'.

# How about
haha, dead people?

# Well,
I don't mind 'haha, a joke about dead babies'.

But I don't like 'haha a real dead person' without a joke.

The calendar on the FP is a good example, or the first rugby joke, they were jokes and that's life - humour is great.

This just says 'I made a shit image, but that's okay because it has a vague reference to some people who have been killed'. It's boring and the only real effect it has is to say 'I don't care' which isn't funny and is probably wrong as some children in Ipswich have no mothers this Christmas.

# Oh yes
I'm not disagreeing. It's just sick to laugh at murder or dead babies anyway isn't it?

Maybe he thought it was funny. Oh well, time for work :(

# There are no subjects which are out of bounds for a joke which relies on those circumstances.
To explain with the use of an obvious example:

A joke which relies on the colour of skin for the joke and is funny - good

A joke which has a punchline along the lines of 'because he's black, the cunt' - idiotic and shit.

A joke which is racist, but funny, but could have worked just as well if it had been aimed at the ginger or any other social group - the worst - casual racism is a terrible thing.

Apply these examples to child killing.
