There are so many other ways we can offend each other without going to those two.

Just remember: There's no such thing as a victimless joke.
I beg to differ. Victimless joke in three acts.

Act I:


Duck walks into a bar, Asks the bartender, "you got any grapes?"

Bartender says, "no, we don't have grapes"

Duck leaves.

Act II

Duck comes back next day. Asks the barternder, "You got any grapes?"

Bartender says, "no, this is a bar, not a grocery store, we don't have grapes."

Duck leaves,

Act III

Duck returns the next day.

Waddles up to the bartender and asks " You got any grapes?"

Bartender says, "Look you little freak, we don't have grapes today, we didn't have them yesterday and we won't have them tommorow. If you ask me again, I'm going to nail your little webbed feet to the bar."

Duck leaves.

Duck returns next day. Duck pokes head nervously into bar, looks around and then waddles up along the bar, ahops up onto a bar stool. Bartender turns around. Duck asks........

"You got any nails?"

Bartender says "No, we don't have nails." Duck says, "Well, in that case, how about some grapes?"

Default another victimless joke

A broom turns to the other broom in the broom closet and says, "I think I'm pregnant." The other broom says, "How can that be? We haven't even swept together!"

So anyway, I think you all got the point....when the jokes turn to personal traits, someone is going to end up offended. I don't think the avatar we're talking about is ducks or brooms.

Thanks all.

I love this forum and the folks here. So... I am happy to know that most of us are irreverent smart @$$es like myself. But I hadn't even imagined that anyone wouldn't spit paleo approved prune juice at the screen when viewing it.

In light of that... I'm off to find another photo.

I am a Christian (seriously), and I think it is damn funny.


Wait!. . . did I say "Damn"? well I meant it as a structure used to hold back fluids, not the way it is used biblically.

Jeremy,

How ironic. You are a Christian and yet you run a place with the Devil's name in it (Diablo). You should check your priorities.

(kidding, of course)

My High schools mascot was the Diablo and back in the day there was a big to-do coming from Christians in the community who wanted the mascot changed because it glorified the devil. Talk about overly sensitive.
