I'm fine with dark humor and get a laugh out of it sometimes, but when it's taken to far it's not cool.
If you were to make a joke about mass shooting after it happened, that's a bit much. However if you let everything cool down first then make the joke, it wouldn't be as bad. It's all about timing and whose around you when you're making the joke.

I like only death related ones. the rest i don't see why you'd share it with me, i try to avoid any talk that is not looking for a standard response so if it's awkward and they mostly are to me, i'd find it unnecessary and you unneeded as like the joke.

I like dark humor in general, but it all depends on the tone and reason behind the joke. If you're racist and telling racist jokes, it's sickening, but just telling a joke for the sake of comedy is never a bad thing. I even laugh at jokes that make fun of my religion, or even me specifically, as long as the intention isn't a bad one.

Incidentally, I'm extremely against prejudice of all types, so you'd think I'd hate jokes like that, but like I said, it's all about the intention. Case in point, bullying usually involves name calling and though this can be funny to some people, I find it cruel.

Jokes are alright.... The crap that I hear from co-workers and relative sometimes is absolutely abominable. They aren't making jokes they are running people down.

Dark humor is better than no humor, and sometimes its the best humor... hmm, depends on the situation

Depends on the nature of the joke. After the Challenger blew up the people I knew in and around the aviation community were making a lot of jokes. But a lot of it was due to the 'but for the grace of God that could have been me' humour. Not saying they were astronauts, but military pilots, etc.

It's humor so it shouldn't matter. I don't mind when people make jokes at my expense as long as they expect it in return. I can't stand hypocrites who make jokes about others but who are offended or hurt when people make jokes about them.

The funniest comedians are those who take it above the regular dull subjects comedians usually talk about. Take George Carlin, for example, an absolute legend in comedy. He would make offensive jokes and I'm sure some people got offended and thought he went too far, but he's one of the most well remembered comedians, so the people he offended must have been okay with it, for the most part.

i think sometimes I make people uncomfortable with my humour lol

I have a disability and I have learned if you learn to laugh and make fun of yourself it helps you cope.

my friend made a joke about my using what I refer to as the cripple card (when you get special treatment, discounts, help, get to queue jump ect... because you are disabled) and how she gets to enjoy the joys of queuing

I said loudly you also get to enjoy the joys of two perfectly working legs, just saying.....

and so the woman behind us in the queue looked uncomfortable....

my friends know its ok to make cripple jokes about me and I join in but it seems many people shocked by it lol like in a shoe shop I joked I probably would have been better off amputating my leg then have to by two different shoe sizes the sales woman looked horrified....

Not only does it help one quote, but if you make fun of yourself it nobody should be mad. I'd rather make fun of myself than make fun of somebody else. Besides if you have a choice of laughing or crying; I'd take laughing any day.

I can handle all jokes if they don't go too far. I make fun of myself too :p I find most things funny but I know when not to laugh if the joke is too offensive.
Posted 9/29/14
Sure, too many people are bland and really not funny so I appreciate any kind of sense of humour.

I make a whole lot of Chris Benoit jokes. Quite a lot of pro wrestling fans do.
