    Default In bad taste?

    I was going to post this joke that I thought of on Facebook, but my very intelligent daughter advised me that while it may not be offensive or in bad taste, people may take it that way. What do you think?

    Not like my opinion on a matter like this would matter to anyone, but I don't personally see it as offensive at all, but some could; what is offensive is in the eye of the beholder or the recipient of the comment or action.

    Maybe this is a time for what I learned from someone regarding a "controversial" email: if you are hesitating at all about hitting the "send" button, don't send it. That principle works for me like a charm, and I've never regretted not sending it.

    Ban, your opinion always matters to me, and it was just about the same as what my daughter told me.

    Not offensive IMO, but definitely not funny either...if you are going to risk a joke that could offend some people at least make it a good one!

    I don't think I'll take that to work with me. However - contrary to ODH - I did find it amusing.
