Where do you personally, draw the line between what is a joke or what is an insult?
Personally I find everything, even dark jokes to be considered humorish, but where do you stand?

I think racism and homophobia is going a little too far, but everything else is okay.

It depends on the humor. For example the violent tsundere beating up the mc type of humor gets really old if done a trillion times in a show for any and all reasons. Now if its stuff like GinTama, Monty Python, ect nonsense humor i can watch it and never get tired of it.

Is up to the individual and nobody else.
I consider this a dark joke.

It's rather subjective, it depends on the audience what's funny and what's not. To some people theres a line, to others nothing is off limits.And when I come back to something I once found offensive, sometimes I cannot help but smile and laugh at myself and see it from the 3rd person's perspective. Not having a sense of humor is something I had a problem with, I took everything much too seriously. If you're not careful, taking things too seriously can run you into the ground.

it depends on who views the joke, but for me i kinda laugh at every kind of joke,

i really don't have a line the more shocking a joke the funnier it usually is.but i guess to some there is a thin line between a joke and an insult i think they just need to laugh more and worry less

I just don't like it when someone insults people I love to an extreme or people with disabilities. It depends on the tone of voice really. Or someone saying something offensive to me that's meant to be an insult.

Like most people are sensitive or try to hide they like dark jokes. I can take them very well though. Depends on how open-minded you are too, I guess.

I think a lot of it depends on the intent behind the joke. Two people can tell the same joke but have different intentions with it making one funny and one more offensive.
Posted 3/17/15
I think everything has the potential to be funny in the right light and with the right audience. Time, place, and inflection are key.

It depends. Since I haven't heard every existing joke out there. Sometimes I do find dark jokes amusing but then I feel guilty about it later.

There's always a limit. Most of the time, I draw it based on context and phrasing...

There are no limits to what can be said,

However, common decency would allow you to pick your jokes depending on your crowd and surroundings.

No it doesn't, I believe it's okay to joke about anything and everything. But you still have to be aware of other peoples feelings if you're not a complete dick. So, basically, don't make black jokes with a black man next to you. But hey, go ahead and make all the jokes you want as long as people know they are jokes.
