Yeah they really tend to do things to death. I can't believe people still think lolcats is funny. That was like 3 years ago.

I sometimes think that some racist, sexist, or homophobic jokes could be funny, but I tend to not make them because they perpetuate negative stereotypes.  I sometimes make them when I'm around close friends who are aware that I'm not that way and I know they're not that way though.

Well with humor, I find any subject matter has potential to spawn good comedy if the comedian tackles it the right way. South Park, classic Simpsons, and George Carlin have played around with racism/homophobia, but they do it in a way where they're making fun of the stereotypes, not reinforcing them.

Dave Chapelle on the otherhand was simply regurgitating racism in his later seasons, he even quit his own show cause he realized it. I also do know one guy that thinks he comedy gold just cause he likes to throw around the word "chink' and "gook" on every asian person he knows and does black people impersonations.  It's so lame and dimwitted and honestly I'm convinced he is just a racist disguising it as his "sense of humor". I've known the guy since middle school. Back then everyone used to think he was funny, but now it's just stupid.

Now Seth Putnam, I think a lot of people here will dismiss him as dimwitted and immature but I think he's so over the top with the most blunt delivery of racism and homophobia imaginable that it's just so ridiculous and thus funny, which matches the ridiculous sound/noise of Anal Cunt. You also gotta take into consideration he's in a genre of music plagued with the most generic politically correct bands around so what he did was revolutionary.

I think there is definately a time and place for offensive humor... But I totally see your point.

I'm pretty damn sick of anything 4chan related and pretty much all internet memes.  If it's brought up in real conversation, it's as if it's an inside joke between anti-social people...used to make conversation less awkward.

Wow this is a very good way to put it.  I agree.

I just have a friend who bases his sense of humor around them and it's rather embarrasing.
