Don't Choke On The Joke!

In the land of PC the joke has become an obscurity. You can't say a damn thing without being prejudice against something or another. People act like you just shot their mother. So for the a to z we look at the joke at my sea.

A joke is had.
Some get mad.
Some get glad.
Some even by a tad.

Joke's on you,
A time or two.
Joker is up.
Bit of a hiccup.

Joke about all.
Oops offended a hall.
It happened to one.
So should be said to none.

Step on a toe,
And away you go.
Get the yank.
You walked the plank.

They want your head.
Meaning want you dead.
Blows up on Twitter.
Your joke made all bitter.

You can pick on Google,
People will oogle.
You can pick on Obamo or Harper or ...endless list,
Most won't get pissed.

But say something about life,
You'll piss off a house wife.
Then come the PTA,
Wanting you to retract what you say.

When who did you hurt?
Did any blood spurt?
Was it directed at a a certain man, woman, child?
Was it waay more vulgar than mild?

Most times the answer is no.
But can the PC police let it go?
Nope, it was just oh so bad.
You shot down that latest fad.

You made fun of the truth.
Can't have that at any booth.
So give a joke a poke,
And get stabbed by a bloke.

Ever get offended by something just out there is space? They said something that made your heart race. But it wasn't directed at you and wasn't hateful, down right mean or something super vulgar that made you stew? Why get upset? Just for fun was a safe bet. Damn PC police need to take a hike or get run over by a bike. All just need to give a whoopdi friggin doo. A joke is a joke whether about a politician or the loo. Those two things go hand and hand in the same social class. Look, it can be done by my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  4. I love a joke which is in good taste of course, some jokes are not so nice when it's done through malice.

    So true we can't say a duck
    When my neighbor's stick gets stuck
    Do you know what I mean
    Sensitive is the buzzword at their scene
    Walking on egg shells is their thing
    Easy to step on their ding-a-ling
    A casualty? You mean he was butchered, you mutt
    Why don't you and stare at your butt
    The PC brigade loves to keep things clear
    Meanwhile thinking of a sexy deer
    On bunnies on some island... oh my!
    Say heck when you mean hell and go cry
    Beep beep your life away
    It sounds okay

      Might be holey now at my zoo

      Deer lovers can be found anywhere
      I suspect my old neighbor "did" his share

  19. It's all gotten so out of control. People get offended at the smallest thing. I worked in an office and we were sent to "workplace harassment" training. They said we had to be careful about any joke we told, even if it was to someone we knew wouldn't be offended, because if someone overheard it and was offended, they could file a complaint.

  25. If you can't take a joke, you might as well croak. I heard a good one the other day. It starts "Did you hear that You Tube, Twitter and Facebook are merging? Seriously, I just read about it."
    Then someone's like, really? or no way? or whatever. And the punch line is:
    "Yeah, they are going to call it You Twit Face."
    It may offend, but that is the end.
