Not All Jokes Are Funny
By Overflowing Brain on February 17, 2012
What is funny to one person, may be offensive or hurtful to another. On occasion, misdirected jokes can even cause lasting damage:
"I’m always going to find jokes about anyone’s weight, celebrity or not, offensive. I just don’t think there’s any need for that. I’ve had my weight mocked multiple times in my life. I’m sure the kids who made fun of me in elementary school thought they were making jokes too. And I wonder how funny they would find them if they knew that I’ve fought an eating disorder for a decade now, largely because of their jokes."
