Subject: Socially irresponsible humor
[It's hard to find a group that you can base jokes on these days and still be
socially responsible. I thought that maybe picking the most easygoing group
would work, but nobody understood my Unitarian jokes... Of course the usual
rule is that it's okay to tell jokes about your own group, which I guess must
be White Anglo-Saxon Protestants for me... Now if only these jokes weren't so
