Lit is not necessarily true, but it contains human truth which is truth enough for an internet discussion. I mean, you're copying text and replacing two words, for heaven's sake.

Not a creationist but the idea isn't bad. Also, Mein Kampf is fiction. How did that turn out?

Fiction is not at all true; however, it can contain some semblance of truth yet also many falsehoods which can be appealing to our cognitive bias.

Mein Kampf didn't hit the New York Times Top 10 Bestseller's List, if that's what you mean. Fiction is a means through which the power of ideas can be magnified. This can be great or terrible, but fiction has its constraints, which some fail to identify. Just sayin'.

Its taken a while to come up with a reply here, and I finally came up with a response. Colbert could do it.

Now, I dont mean to suggest he would be making fun of the holocaust, its victims or its survivors of course, but as a parody, would be making fun of those who would. Family Guy does the same thing, but sometimes trade the parody for a quick laugh...which, is what comedy is, but at the very least they'd probably get censored before they went down that route. I can only imagine a few fell on the cutting floor, that were beyond what anyone would ever want to say in any other setting than with a bunch of irreverent comedians.

Humor does make us think, on a deeper level than we otherwise would, so theoretically, its possible such a joke is possible, but Im not entirely sure if that's what BBS meant.

Honestly, he seems to be avoiding the whole "what kind of jokes about the holocaust are funny" questions, but there is that one loophole, that he could have meant, and therefore not have been as offensive as it really does from that one statement. Its also possible it was written without too much thought, and if you need any previous examples of him doing that...just click on "Search BBS posts"

One thing for sure, its dangerous business, and probably best to be avoided at all costs.

Hitler jokes on the other hand, tell those things all day long: They dont even have to be good, like this one:

Why did Hitler cross the road?

So he could shoot himself in the head. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!

That's another valid aspect of comedy worth highlighting.

You can't even come up with one example lol.

You can't even come up with one example lol.

BBS just turned five years old. You're on the ropes BBS, throw in the towel and just admit it, you regret the shit out of ever having said the holocaust could be funny!

When you go to a funeral, do you pull down your pants and take a shit in the middle of the room? With jokes, context matters. I imagine that in Sweden there is no humor and only cold titties--an unfortunate place.
If it is your funeral, then yes!

You just made a huge blunder. You compared joking about the holocaust to crapping in a funeral, that was just the point I was trying to make. You just don't do that shit!

I think making a pun about shit at the end of this was disrespectful to dead people.

Oh, and I didn't read the novel The Wave but I did watch the film and it while I thought it was a good movie and could work as an allegory but I hardly think it would accurately represent what would happen in a real world classroom.

Hmm, you may be right tgd and if so, touche.
In my defense, I was reading fitz's post which included only gillipig's one quote and fitz's response combined with his emote. Fitz, what's the verdict here? Is my funny bone broken or is tgd's joke-o-meter FUBAR?
