Usually people have this idea that YOU DISHONOUR ME. Or Political toughness. Like these people are so stupid. There is nothing wrong to laugh at oneself. If one wanna joke then its ok. Well not all jokes are good, so i am more questioning the quality of it. But i do think its sad when some take offense at being made fun of. One should shrug it off in my opinion. Or well to put it out frankly, ignore it and do your best. Laugh it off is my way. Although the mocker should also tolerate being made fun off back.

Either way thats my opinion atleast, people who cant take jokes makes me sad. Liberals vs conservatives etc.
For example i thought it was hilarious when Alex Jones from InfoWars interrupted the young turks, seeing the angry reactions from them was the best thing ever XD

I mean Alex Jones is a crazy nut which is why i love him, and tyt is bad in comparison. Which is why i just loved this stuff XD

Totally agree with this. 100%.
In fact, I'd go as far as to say that people who cannot laugh at themselves -- especially if they're someone with a significant amount of influence -- are downright dangerous. If they are in politics, then it might cause them to overreact to things, and if they're someone famous -- like a pop celebrity or something -- then they can potentially spread that kind of attitude to people who look up to them and idolize them.


And if it's a mob... Well, I think the results speak for themselves...

Not being able to laugh at one self and/or shrug off ridicule and insults is, I'd say, one of the biggest problems with mankind in general as far as things that universally affects all kinds of people goes. Not as bad as things like our perpensity towards irrational, emotion driven thinking over rational, objective thinking or our inherent xenophobic tendencies of course, but still pretty bad.

I laugh at myself all the time because I'm just a big joke.
