    Saw this GIF posted in a thread titled "Funny Images" on the Forums at Dragon Cave:

    {IMAGE REDACTED}*

    *Image showed Prince or some "pop star" "dancing" on the top of a collapsing World Trade Center Tower.


    I quoted the poster and said something like "Yeah. Terrorism and murder are frakking hilarious."


    Did I over react?!?!? Has it been long enough that the murder of ~3000 is funny now?!?!?

    Probably will be locked, even though I did NOT post it because I funny. But rather because it was offensive and I wanted to complain. I'll remove the image.

    Thing of it is...............


    It is funny to some folks. Those who seem to feel we deserved it, brought it on ourselves, needed it, or that our own govt did it are always going to find some reason to rejoice.

    If you could look at the images of people jumping to their deaths from the fires in the towers and laugh you need to be executed.

    Some things are never funny, no matter how much time that has past. Have you ever heard a joke about Hiroshima?

    I still get a very sick feeling in the pit of my stomach everytime I see the pictures of the twin towers.

    I find humor in some of the most ridiculous or disgusting or inappropriate things. I laugh at people getting maimed and murdered in movies where it was never meant to be funny at all. And even I do NOT find any jokes about 9/11 funny.

    No. It is a good thing you are an EMT and that I am a former EMT and a current Police chaplain because we would be praying, not for him or with him but OVER him.:steamed:

    It is disgusting that any American would think that is funny.

    Yes, I'd say you're too sensitive.

    Images and words only carry the weight you lend them. Just because you don't find it funny or even if you find it offensive is no reason too get your panties all twisted about whatever it is we're discussing.

    I remember, vividly, the Challenger space shuttle detonating in mid launch. I also remember the months and dozens of "jokes" that followed the event.

    Not once did I think "wow, I should punch that guy in the throat."

    Not apples to apples because the Challenger disaster wasn't an intentional act but, the underlying semntiment holds true. Tasteless "humor" abounds in a world full of different people.

    Just let it go. Anyone who finds the destruction of the WTC funny isn't going to be shamed by your admonishment anyway. Why get bent about it?

    It's dark humor and I like dark humor at times -- depends on what it's about and the mood I'm in. To like dark humor you have to have a little bit of a warped sense of humor to begin with. There's humor in all things -- good and bad. Some of it you just don't express it because it may offend someone who doesn't share your sense of humor. And some of it just isn't funny at all.
