It's like modern kindergarten... oops, I mean pre-school...
where everybody gets a prize for showing up, so everyone,
equally, gets to feel 'speshul'.

To John, which is worse: to have the chip on your
shoulder, perched and ready for any opportunity to
take offense.... or to be on the lookout for any
chance to be offended on behalf of somebody else?

As for the content of the original post, any of
us who are ... um... of a certain age, has seen
a variant of that joke several times over the years.

I might be in the minority here, but I have no
problem with people posting humo[u]r to this list.
But I think the line-in-the-sand should be:

a) if saw it and you think it's funny, post a link

b) if you want to post it directly... author it.
