Want to hear a joke guaranteed to make a lot of people mad?

When I was a boy, JFK would not have had a change of heart and embraced gay marriage.

Why not?

The Pope would have excommunicated him.

That wouldn't happen today.


The Muslims don't have a Pope.

Don't quit your day job, OP.

I'm only mad because I actually spent 20 seconds wondering if I was missing something.

Don't get it.

by Anonymousreply 504/10/2013

OP - are you insinuating that Obama is a Muslim and therefore because Muslim's have no Pope, as the Catholics do and Kennedy was a Catholic, there would be no outfall these days?

It's not funny and I don't think it's going to make anyone mad either.

Epic fail.

r6 Nails it for those who didn't get it. That was a long way to go for little payoff.

Any time a joke starts off with "Want to hear a joke about..?" it's a guarantee that it will be awkwardly told and unfunny.

Also, r8, the joke is dependent on audience participation not just once but twice. After they ask "why?" they then have to go along and ask, "Why not?'. I'm sorry but I am not getting that invested in your joke, you are here to entertain me and I shouldn't have to work that hard. Make it a snappy one liner and call it a day.

You're not funny, OP. That doesn't mean anyone is angry at you. It means that you're not clever.

by Anonymousreply 1004/10/2013

The "joke" is stupid on so many levels, not the least of which is that Muslims tend to be far less accepting of gay marriage than Catholics.

Because JFK is dead.

Too dumb to make anyone angry.

Q: How is the pope like a christmas tree?

A: The balls are for decoration.

R16 Now THAT is funny!

Did OP curl up into a ball and start crying?

In other words: Excuse me, miss, but I have jokes of my own.

by Anonymousreply 2004/10/2013

I was totally confused until I read through and understood that OP was calling Obama a Muslim. I hadn't got the joke because Muslims have nothing to do with Obama.

OP. What a weirdo. Pull your head out of your ass and read more. Perhaps not at backwards freeper sites.

No R18. Just waiting for a R21. Which is why I did it in the first place.

Leaving this one now to go and become better read.

What do Gwyneth Paltrow and a tampon have in common?

They're both stuck up cunts.

Now, that's funny.

That joke does make me mad! JFK would have had no business letting his religion dictate his positions on important social issues!

by Anonymousreply 2404/11/2013

Not angry, just shaking my head at the stupidity.

by Anonymousreply 2504/11/2013

Not only is Obama not a Muslim, he's not even Catholic. Sheesh, talk about a joke that makes no sense whatsoever.

Often when we say a joke isn't funny we mean it's offensive.

But when I say that joke isn't funny, I mean it's not funny.

by Anonymousreply 2804/11/2013

Wow. Jokes tend to follow a particular model or rhythm, and as others pointed out, this one requires the listener to ask "why/why not" twice. This would never work as a spoken joke.

It is also a really stupid joke.

The "joke" not only assumes that the listener believes Obama is a Muslim, but that JFK (like any Catholic President) would allow the Vatican to make policy decisions.

This is like tea party humor circa 1960.

that's a joke? nice try, freeper.

by Anonymousreply 3004/11/2013

I'm not mad, OP. I'm just disappointed.

r31 isn't mad at you, she's mad at the dirt (y joke you should have told).

Yawning is not a sign of anger.
