Humour Interlude: Highbrow and Lowbrow

13 Jun

I was considering doing another FKB linkfest today, and had gathered some links to share, but another of us volunteered to do so, and that should be up later today, I presume – this being Wednesday, the usual day.

But I thought I’d share a couple funny links I’d found, which would have been part of one if I’d prepared one for today.

A humourous piece.

And some funny pictures.

    The pictures are priceless, Will.

    One of the things that Wall Street was known for in the 80s and 90s was a sick sense of humor that propagated quickly in the mostly-male environment. This was where the “Challenger Disaster” humor evolved, with such classics as “What does NASA stand for? Need another seven astronauts.” Given the hit on 9/11, I did not expect to see any jokes about it originating on the Street. (Like the post card with the cancellation of a plane over the twin towers.) Still, I did once find a page of 9/11 humor. The only one I can remember:

    “It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… Holy Shit! It really is a plane!”

    @ EA: Ha!

    It’s too bad people today are hypersensitive about jokes in poor taste. Remember Jeffrey Dahmer? I haven’t heard anywhere near as many jokes about Luka Magnotta today as people made back then about Jeffrey Dahmer. And the possibilities are endless; one could joke about an Italian preferring take-out Chinese food, for starters… 😉

    That reminds me of the old joke:

    Q. What’s a queer’s favourite Chinese food?
    A. Cream of sum yung guy.

    We do need more 9/11 jokes and humour. And not just the cathartic, healing kind blah blah blah; I mean the honest-to-goodness, pointless, truly tasteless ones. Just because. Shit, it’s been over a decade. Let’s get on with it. Like these two, the first of which was released ‘too early’, but it’s hilarious, IMO:

    “I have a flight to California,” Gilbert Gottfried ­announced at a Friars Club roast of Hugh Hefner just weeks after 9/11. “I can’t get a direct flight—they said they have to stop at the Empire State Building first.”

    The second image would work better it there was an “It’s Horrible” at the top, and then a few lines lower had the image and the line. That, amigo, is truly in poor taste!

    Which reminds me: for the next joke thread, we need a series of offensive religious jokes. Just the other day at work, I was talking with two colleagues when I looked up and started: “A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew are standing around a cubicle…” Sadly, no humor ensued.

    And if you’re going to start with the gay jokes…
    What’s the first symptom of AIDS?
    A severe pounding in the rectum.

    Oh yeah, for sure, we do have to do that! As long as they’re not overly sacrilegious against our faith; I don’t give a toss about the others. 🙂

    Good AIDS joke, BTW; not enough of them any more.

    Q. How did AIDS get to North America?
    A. Bummed a ride.

    @ EA: BTW, re: the other half of my post, did you read the Sacramone piece? That guy’s funny. He used to have a blog called Luther at the Movies, in which he yes, reviewed movies, as though it were Martin Luther reviewing them. It was hilarious.

    I see some people have found this place through looking for Luka Magnotta jokes. 🙂

    So, I heard that British singer Adele is pregnant.

    What I’m wondering, is, how can anyone tell? 😉

      I mean, right now, she looks like this:

      But she used to look like this:

      And I predict that after a kid or two, she’ll end up looking back like that. 🙂

    Re: the subject of the first humour link in the post:

    He is one crazy ass. But I think he’d make an excellent dinner companion, for amusement. 🙂
