    I suspect they know their market and these sorts of ads probably hit their target.

    No apology necessary but cheers...
    I was trying to make the comment obviously absurd. Which is how I see a lot of political turmoil these days.
    Satire being the only retreat.
    Oh no I just got texted a joke that no doubt could be offensive. Off to the joke thread now.

    Yeah, I was going to put a qualifying comment that I wasn't sure if you were being sarcastic/satirical, but left it more as a semi-independent rant

    You just need to work harder on your satire. Don't blame the climate. Make your jokes better.

    Everything can be funny but the more boundaries it crosses, the harder you need to work.

    Harder? is an understatement. In this day and age of this cultural conditioning to be delicate, fragile, and easily offended its barely worth the attempt considering the possibility of being grossly misunderstood then lynched etc.
    Were is simple strength of character? Killed, dead. Freedom of speech? Dead. Free thinking? dead.

    Bollocks. Just overly sensitive rednecks crying they can't call their slave 'nigger' anymore without someone calling them a hurtful ephitet like 'racist'. Say what you want, understand the context, own it and move on.

    When has the threat of being lynched been more than a metaphor for you?

    Are you are judging me to be in the racist red neck category?
    If so than you may have a point about my attempted humor when I may have felt I was mocking the category.

    I interpreted Danscraftbeer's comment as tongue in cheek the moment I read it.

    Maybe I need to go looking for offensiveness in things a bit harder.

    I'm not judging you to be in any category.

    I'm making a comment about satire, free speech and accepting responsibility for words used. We actually have more freedom of speech, thought and expression today than any time in history, I reckon. Someone else being upset by what you say or write doesn't equate to book burning, torture, imprisonment or any real form of persecution.

    Tongue in cheek yes, satire no. As for offensiveness - that's never been a crime in my book and not really something I care about. Offend. Be offensive. Be offended. Nothing happens.

    Racists get offended when they get called racists. Oversensitivity is bipartisan which was one point.

    My other point was that good satire is clever; the more 'taboo' the subject, the cleverer it needs to be to work. No subject for me is untouchable but you need to do more than say 'poo bum child porn coon' in order to be considered amusing.

    Tongue in cheek , satire, fuck, surely there's a bit of crossover, but anyway he made it pretty clear in his response to Technobabble that he was making his comment deliberately absurd and that's what came across to me.

    Good. I get what you mean and am not really looking for an argument with you.

    If it was a joke (which he's made clear and I accept), then I thought it was a shit joke. I made some other points.
