Dark humor comedy about current events really isn’t deemed appropriate for most people. Said individuals will try to get to a moral high ground above you by pointing out how “Wow1!! I can’t believe u would say such a thing, u should loose all that money(job) you’ve made for being offensive to my beliefs”. It satisfies the masses to rally against someone and point them out as villains. Social media becoming mainstream is definitely thinning the view of what we can say and joke about online and real life(can’t show sarcasm in plain text either, so that’s confusing).
I honestly enjoy dark humor since it makes me laugh at the imminent doom we’re all destined to go to (death) and the complete absurdity of how we proclaim to be the smartest being on the planet but we let mentally unstable and irrational teenagers easily purchase guns at 18, while not being able to get drunk until they’re 21(depends, I know) “Woops I can’t show myself holding this beer but this kill switch looks dope on my lanky hands I use to jack off daily”
But to a degree I agree that there have to better ways to tell jokes rather than just using the shock value and calling it “dark humor”. That’s just lazy.
Joke about how kids are dumb for taking bullying to serious? that’s Inappropriate not everyone agrees with that, nobody should be the victim of a bully So let me tell you what to do:
It’s 2018 man, if you get hit by this said bully (I’m picturing a stereotypical jock from the 80s named Slab), give out the LOUDEST, LARGEST, DISTINGUISHABLE PLEASURE MOAN YOU CAN. Pretend you enjoy the naming, and physical abuse while calling him daddy, Nothing’s better than a jock being scared away by their own questionable sexuality. I mean jock straps scream ‘I’m kinky’
But if that fails(it probably will), you’ll either make him leave you alone out of fear of what they don’t understand or you’ll get a new gay boyfriend… But what if you aren’t gay you say? Just tell him you are saving yourself for marriage and break up with him after a while. Break his heart like he broke your bones. That’ll show him!
Giving funny solutions to how to stop the bullying? Better.
I might have been even more risky in that bit counting that I included bullying and the LGBTQ+ community in a sense… but for me this was better than just saying somethin that’s completely out of touch like “Worst news since they’re parents told them to get a summer job” Tweet , Kids died Dinesh stfu.
There are ways to do jokes that cross the pc line without offending people, you just have to be smart about it. Not that I think I’m funny or anything this are just my thoughts.
