Let’s catch up on some forum chatter, yeah?
All comedians have made offensive jokes and everyone has been offended by a joke at some point in their lives. It’s hard not to offend at least one person every time you tell a joke. But how far is too far? Should certain topics be completely off-limits to comedians? I used to say no. Personally, I think that as long as a joke is well-written and well-executed, no topic is off limits. In most cases. I’m not saying that Daniel Tosh’s rape jokes were funny. Edgy and shocking is kind of his style though. I just know that my jaw drops several times throughout each episode of Tosh.0, but I’m never offended.
I was extremely offended, however, by Dane Cook’s recent joke about the Aurora, CO shooting. It was a poorly written, poorly executed joke and obviously, in very poor taste. It’s hard to imagine any comedian doing a better job delivering it. Or trying to make light of that terrible tragedy so soon after. So perhaps timing is also crucial in joke-telling when you are incorporating a sensitive subject.

I have a shampoo obsession. I buy new kinds, brands from my childhood that stir up memories by scent, cheap kinds, expensive kinds and everything in between. Finding a shampoo that works for your hair is not easy, so you have to “kiss a lot of frogs” so to speak. Do you have a favorite shampoo? Is there a certain brand you love to splurge on?
