So I was just listening to the NEWS the other day, and I thought finally a major star involved in some hardcore action. No more of these crappy mild, "leaked," sex vids. Alas my hopes were not met. Turns out it was nothing of the Phallic sort that attacked Mrs. Fawcetts posterior. It
I've been pondering this for a while. Just where is the line between humour and depravity. In my eyes the two over lap. Or maybe I just wallow in depravity. Lately though some people have taken to some of my views on being crippled, dying, in pain or what have you. Why just the other day I was making a joke aboot cancer, and was told it wasn't funny. I found this to be quite pretentious as humour is based in a large part on the person. Things I find funny someone else may not. Where is the limit though, and is it a good idea to set such a limit when there will always be someone who is out to go beyond it?
So there I was watching TV. I merely heard the words Farah Fawcett and Anal. Right away I assumed the worst. Or best depending on who you are. I thought it was at least some juicy gossip. At best maybe a steamy sex tape. Alas, reality was having none of it. Farah had ineed got it in the ass, but this was something that was some anal action that would in fact be not of the recreational variety. Although it is the first time I had ever heard of, " anal cancer," usually the names are more scientific. Such as colon and such. This time not.
I did at first feel a little guilty for snickering a little. I was suddenly flashed to the Scott Tenormen episode in which the band Radiohead hears of a troubled fans battle with cancer. This was not just any cancer though as the band members stated. It was as they said with a significant pause, "Cancer....of the ASS."
Somehow this cancer seemed more dire than the other cancers. Even ball cancer didn't sound as striking. Now of course it's not cancer itself that was humourous but the delivery, and other factors. Cancer merely becomes one aspect of the story. Maybe it's the incongruity between the two that adds to the humour. I don't know.
A few days ago though someone got angry at me for making a minor joke aboot a deadly illness. In this case I guess it is the position that made all the difference. This person was after all dying of just such an illness. If it was me though I would have made all the more jokes due it. I mean, hell. It's like being Jewish. Once you convert you have free reign over the jokes. It's like my desire to date all the minorities I can. I mean past the obvious sexual part. Also don't even get me started on the time I was getting set up with a breast cancer survivor who was minus a boob. My friend put a stop to that one when she walked in on an ill-timed joke.
Where exactly is this line though? I mean people make fun off addictions, criminals, and Jews. So why not have some fun with cancer. Are we HIV-Positive that we want to put terminal illness off our list of sociably acceptable humour? With me sometimes it's not even that I'm trying to be offensive. I just don't like to think things that I don't say. Sometimes this can cause some people to get Hurt.....In the ASS!!!
So have I been insensitive all this time? Or have I in fact been fighting for freedom. After all they say laughter is the best medicine so why not give your terminal illness some medicine?
Okay bitches. So now lets hear you all cry and insult me like the homos you are. Also to all the other people writing. Write something proper. Not just some dribble aboot how you got banned from IRC for being a little bitch.
