The "Is It Wrong If I Am LMFAO About This ?" thread reminded me of this. Do you ever find yourself the only on hitting the laugh reaction on Facebook posts and wonder if your sense of humor is inappropriate, at least among civilians?

What got me thinking it was this post from Heavy.com

So I'm laughing out loud, (literally, not internetically) and I hit the "Haha" reaction but notice there are no other Hahas and mostly there are the one with the little tear or the shocked face one, neither of which I have ever used in 10 years on Facebook. Nearly all of my Facebook friends are either in the military or law enforcement or both and they'd all laugh at it.

Anyhow, still seems like a hilarious story to me and with the part about his burrito and the comment at the end, right before he got wacked in a San Francisco drive-by, it looks like it was written as comedy. It's so obviously comedy, IMO, that I wonder if it's even a real story, but heavy.com doesn't joke much.

Anybody else find yourself using "Haha" in a manner different than the civilian populace, or what?

Title edited: "Fecebook" was just a typeo, but maybe it will catch on. It has been 3 or 4 days and I still LOL when I look at that post.:rofl:

Also, I checked out Courtney's Twitter account.

His famous last words:

Technically, he actually posted a crying emoji about the SanFrancisco Pride Parade being cancelled after that, which makes me think even more that the author was going for comedy when he mentioned the burrito post.

Is “burrito” a metaphor? It is San Francisco after all.

Meh, he thinks differently than I do about a lot of things, but he's still somebody else's kid, and I hate to think about what they're going through.

It sucks, but it's life. If it was satire, which I can see how you would think it is, it would be funny, but it's not satire and an innocent person is dead, so I won't laugh.

I won't lose sleep over it either, but you know what I'm saying.

My sense of humor is a little skewed so yeah i found it humorous as well. The irony is amusing. Yup, things were alright till it weren’t, shoulda waited a bit to post an “all is well”.

It's sad, drive-bys are not suppose to happen to white young gay hipsters especially in SF. Now If he OD'd on heroin or a rusting lamp post (from constantly being peed on) fell on him, we would not be so surprised.

Probably be listed as a WuFlu death. If he had just stayed home...

It's the flip side of the coin. If it was a friend, you would think it's tragic as he was having a good day and got killed while getting a burrito.

Nah, I've got a dark sense of humor but that just seems sad. He seemed like a happy productive member of society minding his own business.

2/10, might chuckle at prior post but feel kinda bad

The rusting lampost comment got me laughing, but for the members who don't know, it is very true:

I laughed my ass off at that. Of course, not everyone will get it...
