That's the problem. What some see as funny others can see as bad taste.

Take the movie Borat for example. I borrowed the DVD from the library and started to watch it. I got about 1/2 way through and stopped it because I thought it was awful. My wife also did not like it. But a lot of people did find it funny. So is it funny or is it in bad taste?
All I needed was to see clips of that movie on TV to judge (in my opinion) that it was awful, not funny and stupid.

But that's just me.

I also don't think practical jokes, at another person's expense, that can possibly cause embarrassment or humiliation, are the least bit funny. Just one reason I don't like Howie Mandel, for one.

Once again . . . just me.
