I'm probably going to regret replying to this, but no, no it's not. Humor is about catharsis. The underlying emotion used to create tension doesn't really matter. Anger can be compelling for building tension, but hate does not work.

Also: please don't necro shitty threads to make shitty posts.

First off: yeah, SOME HUMOR may ALSO be passive-aggressive expressions of hate, but saying that is the basis is easily disproven:

Why was 6 afraid?
Because 789
(read it out loud if you don't get it)

Pretty sure there's no passive-aggressive expression of hate.

Read up on benign violation for something that at least works as a universal model. In short people ar going to have one or more of these reactions: they are going to not laugh, they are going to laugh, or they are going to be offended (in some cases it's easy to see how someone could laugh and still be offended).

Lastly, what Arc said: Don't necro shitty threads

But I am offended! You clearly hate numbers and their vibrational alignment! You haven't even quoted the bible here because you ignore the revolution that has come and gone and your secular ignorance blinds you.
Poverty and math are one of many things changed by it. Your rights have ended where the feelings of others have begun because of this revolution.
Tat jokes about it, but the feminist movement succeeded in destroying what America once was. Why is thread-necromancy a bigger crime than numerical genocide? As we speak, there are nations out there that have already successfully done away with small single unit labels of currency. The penny? Why I hardly even knew her! Sure, it's on life-support in America as a thin disk of zinc but there once was a time where the penny was a wonderful item of barter that could prevent starvation. I love food.

It was my "privilege".

According to this test below, I score +70 privileged. Not once did I consider that there could be others worse off than me because I am unemployed and can't afford rent.

At least I can take some small amount of comfort in knowing that I am not suffering like a Saudi Prince (-600, Middle East, -50, Muslim, +100 Rich).
or a
Blind, Institutionalized disfigured black intersex gay transgendered short Black-Jewish scientist from Africa who can't add scientific calculations to support her family. (-1915)

That really makes me think.

*GASP!* I forgot to check it! I'm a monster! I must verily "check-ity check" my "wrecked self". I forget that math is of the greatest sins to your cultural heritage. Yet here I am spewing numbers as if they weren't rare and precious.
Forgive me, please. I will avoid eating in hopes that is cleanses me of my sins.

It irritates me to no end that the yellow portion is 0 to -100 instead of -100 to 0 which would make sense with the rest of the scale.

I am "Above Average".

That's a pretty poorly designed test.


I get somewhere between -100 and 100. Dunno where.

Scored a 95. Better check myself.

In all seriousness, why the dick is Bisexual a +10? They not only have to put up with shit for being 'gay', but sometimes aren't even accepted by the gay community because they are 'straight'.

Any person that isn't okay with someone being homosexual isn't going to magically be okay with someone being bisexual.

And why do Jews get +25 and Christians get +5? In the US that would be reversed. And why are scientists -10? In what way are scientists systemically underprivileged?

Anyway, I got to +85, but I skipped one. I'm not sure if I get +25 for being able-bodied, -50 for being diabetic (disease!), or average them to -25 for being both.

Edit: does 4am on Friday count as "doing this on friday night?" It doesn't, right?

Ok, CIS means straight right?

This is a serious question. Or do straight people just get +0 and aren't on the scale.
