    Domestic violence and violence against women is not a topic for humour. This comes the day after the Baden Clay appeal was upheld and only a few days after Victoria Police members were exposed for preying on domestic violence victims they were meant to be assisting. Australia is finally moving towards giving this issue the serious attention it deserves.

    from Whiteribbon.org.au

    "Violence against women is a serious problem in Australia where:
    Research indicates that:
    But there is hope, because research also shows that:
    As a community of mainly men on Green and Gold Rugby I think it is imperative that when we see something that is not right, we call it out and set a standard that says no to violence against women.

    Stoff, from the nation that gifted us "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", you should hang your head in shame.

    Who the FUCK said anything about defending Domestic Violence? It's obviously indefensible! The since-deleted pisstake article was about Wife KILLING! Get your facts right before you righteously gallop in to the rescue aboard that sanctimonious high horse, Mr Rogers.
    Completely disagree.

    ANYTHING is fair game, the challenge being to tweak it like so to turn it on itself.

    Once shit is deemed "off-limits" for piss-taking then hello Houston we are now fucked, Welcome to, 1984.

    ps I just had my first awesome thought for the day: naming a sports franchise "Hour"

    for example, "The Auckland Hour". "The Tokyo Hour". "The New York Hour".

    You cannot deny the epic feel of it.

    Way more epic than say "The New Orleans Pelicans". The what? Wft has a fuckin pelican got to do with athleticism? May as well name your team "The New Orleans Gullet-Faced Gimps of The Seaside."

    No, the Hour is the Future.

    Just think of the merchandising opportunities.

    "What time is it? HOUR TIME"

    for an NBA team? "Hour Glass. Hour House."

    Plus, of course, every time the ball goes out of play, everyone, regardless of which side they are on, will be reduced to yelling "hour ball, ref."

    WTF you just say. I'm sending Anthony Davis around to your house to stare at you with his brow for an hour, so you can bask in its glaring dissaproval.

    With regards to edgy humour

    Have a watch of this



    Some people would say it's offensive - that it's making fun of deaf people.

    I would say that it lampoons the idiot who doesn't respect deaf people by showing him doing something that no right minded individual would think is ok. This is where the outrageous humour comes from.

    So, when seeing humour that tackles the 'untacklable', my personal opinion is we should think twice before we condemn it as offensive out of hand. It might be making the right point.

    (this isn't carte blanche to Dismal though. When it comes to the untacklable, he applies Kiwi breakdown interpretations)

    I agree.

    If you laugh, it's funny.

    That's it for me.

    Ricky Gervais tried a similar gambit with "Derek" and it exploded all over his cock because, ihomo, he didnt go far enough. Unlike the maniac in the clip above.
    Got it.

    So, come in from the rear, touch up everyone's balls, leave sexy ball-less corpses strewn all over the turf, then fuck off home a winner. Business as usual then.

    Alas gents we live in the age of outrage, where the morally superior search every nook and cranny for something at which to take offence. Then follows a competition to see who can be the most outraged and thus ascend to the highest point of the moral high ground. (So as to look down on the rest of us)

    Do you think Gervais was trying to do something similar to above with Derek? I didn't get that vibe at all. I think Gervais revels in uncomfortable humour and was going to use Derek as the vehicle to create those uncomfortable situations, but quickly realised it fell off that cliff and turned it into something more considered and sweet.

    But edgy humour is subjective. If the above clip came out in 1993 as a Mr Bean episode it would have been laughed at by every family in the country without a second thought. It's only subjective now because how much the goal posts have moved in 22 years. But that shit above could 100% be a Mr Bean episode.

    I think Gervais is braver than most. By going after Caitlin Jenner he went somewhere even Anthony Jeselnik points out its not safe to go. That's from a bloke who's main shtick is dead baby jokes.

    oops I only saw the first episode and had flagged it before it ended. My take is that first you need to establish a normality template to take the brain out of the equation. Then, with that pesky "thinking" process removed, you have a base from where you can introduce incongruity that's aimed at the gut, not at the brain. At least thats what I try to do with my fuckhead go-nowhere bollox "pictorial essays" anyway. Establish the baseline narrative, let people think they know where they stand, then pull the rug out and throw them off the cliff.

    That first episode, with the bottom lip stuck out, failed at that iHomo because it had the brain engaged with wft, where is he going with this, there's gonna be a backlash, fahhk where's the funny, (so much thinking i forgot to laugh) this sux, ok I'm out
