You posted a good joke of mine a few days ago on rec.humor.funny, yet several people protested that my message was not funny at all. My joke went like this: > ... > We will start at the entrance of City Hall, and proceed down Main Street, > until we reach the 7-11 where my brother Bill works. We'll loot the store > while clubbing Bill to death. Then we will proceed to my appartment building > and set it on fire. Finally you'll get to see me batter my wife and abuse my > children. > ... > This ought to teach the police not to victimize innocent people. Complainers sent me letters like these: "I have been a battered wife for three years and I assure you, it's not funny!" "I have been abused all through my childhood and I assure you, it's not funny!" "I have been called Bill ever since I was born and I assure you, it's not funny!"
