    Thank you. I'll make sure to put that in my application for the SJ '06 Awards. ;)

    Oh, and the word you neglected to spell there is "fucking." Try it sometime. You might be able to laugh more, too.

    Actually Revenge, I am a lot of fun to be around. I enjoy looking at the positive aspects of life, I am able to laugh at myself and others, and I have a cheerful disposition.

    If you think I'm pompous because I find black humour distasteful, then I guess I'm pompous....and I'm proud of it.

    Like you, I have lost a child - my first son died when he was four weeks old. He suffered a great deal during his life, and I defy anybody on this board to make a joke or witty remark about his death that could be funny or humorous.

    Human suffering is sad...it is not funny.

    I hope you have a good day.

    I'm sorry about your son, nobody should have to go through anything like that.
    But the only reason I responded was to let you know i had nothing more to say to you, that I didn't want to get dragged down into a quagmire like can happen on this board sometimes.
    I think you're boring and pompous, you think I'm crass. Can't go much farther from there.
    Enjoy yourself.

    Is it too soon to joke about these historical examples of the word "fuck" where human suffering was involved?

    "What the fuck was that?"
    - Mayor of Hiroshima

    "Where the fuck is all this water coming from?"
    - Captain of the Titanic

    "That's not a real fucking gun."
    - John Lennon

    "I don't suppose its gonna fucking rain?"
    - Joan of Arc

    "Scattered fucking showers my ass."
    - Noah

    "I need this parade like I need a fucking hole in my head."
    - John F. Kennedy

    "Where the fuck did all these Indians come from?"
    - Gen. Custer

    Stretch.... sorry to read about your son. One of my good friends had a son who died at four days old and I attended the funeral.

    Some people deal with the pain of a tragedy that doesn't directly effect them through humor rather than being empathetic to the pain. Others deal with personal pain through humor. I was making a joke about my father's death the day he died after a six month battle with cancer. He died the same day Bush was being inaugurated for his first term. I cracked the joke "I knew my dad didn't want to see Bush as president, but I didn't think he'd go to this extreme to do it." Am I cruel or insensitive for making jokes like that or is it permissible because it was dealing with/coping with pain through humor?
