@Venture Free I'm a bit ashamed of that first sentence. I think it's stupid to say "X is never funny," but I don't think that means you're stupid. It's an important difference.

I'm normally not this blunt, but anyone who says "X is never funny," is just plain stupid. It's stupid when you say it about the holocaust about which many a funny joke has been written, and it stupid when you say it about rape. I'm not saying that pronouncements like "You should be raped," are the least bit funny, because they're not. But that's a far cry from saying that rape jokes can't possibly be funny. George Carlin covered this explicitly years ago in a fucking hilarious bit specifically addressing this little corner of the stupidity universe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FsfLPohZ_c Listen to that and tell me you didn't laugh because rape jokes are NEVER funny. NEVER!!!
