I didn't post the jokes becuase I knew most people wouldn't like them. Had I known I would be yelled at for simply posting a link, I would have.

Get off your high horse. (Really!!!!)

Are we so insensitive to other people's feelings that we will make jokes about tragedies merely for a cheap laugh? I wonder what the opinion would be of the families whose members died in 9/11.

I personally find jokes about the holocaust offensive.

Time is the great healer, maybe in another fifty years time jokes can be made
about today's tragedies, but it is still too raw in a great many peoples minds to make light of it. It says more about the people who enjoy such humour than it does about the victims.
