bouchdogg: This link deserves a "Sappy" tag. The dead horse known as 9/11 has been officially beaten to a pulp.

/Nothing more to see here, people, move along.

AMIRITE?!?!

There is a third level of truth if you understand.


I remember sailors with their "purchased company" crying on the pier on the last day of liberty in Thailand. Good stuff.

Hopefully the USS New York will provide some measure of remembrance and an equal measure of justice FOR the victims of Muslim extremism on September 11, 2001.

Ahhhh don't sweat it dude....it was the thought that counted.

You mean the steel that was recycled before it could be tested for an investigation?

xlbrooklyn: crunchyfist: It's been almost 7 years, how long do we have to wait to start making jokes?

Well, it's been 65 years since Pearl Harbor, and I still don't hear anybody cracking any jokes about it.


I wish a certain group of people would get over slavery, that was 143 years ago. When can I make jokes about it?
 
2008-03-01 11:10:21 PM
Jokes tend to work better if they contain some sort of humor.

There are so many things wrong with what you said. You've earned this.

So that's why the US government knocked down the towers. They needed steel for the ships! Ah so.

Christening? How do they know what religion the ship is?

ParliamentFunkadelic: I would crack a joke but "dem good red-blooded americans" think its too soon for civil war jokes let alone this.

Making fun of the event in which a few thousand people lost their lives for no good reason? Go for it. I'm sure there are folks out there ghoulish enough to find it funny.

Making fun of a floating piece of propaganda? Another thing entirely. For example - I wonder if any of the steel was recycled for other purposes? Or in general, for that matter? Somewhere, is there a spring-coil mattress or a Coke can itching to fight terrorism?

The depressing part is that the best thing we could come up with using steel from the WTC tragedy is...a floating taxi?

Fair thee well, ship built out of crime scene evidence!
Best of luck to you in waters where you can't possibly shed light on what really happened!

And what luck, the evidence of the crime used to justify murdering those pesky dark-skinned people has been rebuilt into one of the instruments soon to be used to murder those same people!

I've been told this by people who were there, but apparently the USS New York smells like thermite.

Jokes about slavery are par for American discourse and have been since Reconstruction. El Rushbo still calls black people "chocolate-chip cookies" for pete's sake and he's the most listened to commentator on American radio.

wow - no one has a sense of humor around here. It's been almost 7 years, how long do we have to wait to start making jokes?

Considering some of the stuff that has been said on this website over the years, I'm surprised people are reacting the way they are.

There's also something to be said for delivery though. This type of gallows humour should be delivered rather deadpan. Instead of saying "wouldn't in be funny if that ship was sunk by kamikaze pilots?", a better delivery would have been "nobody tell the Japanese about this ship" (though the humour is flawed as they're allies to the US now). "I hope it's got good anti-air defences" would have worked as well. Anyway, I'm no Carlin, so I'll quit now, but it's all about the delivery.

Osama did it...from a cave....in Afganistan...using a bunch of terrorists who magically didn't die in the air planes that crashed...where titanium from the jet engines was incinerated but a passport and bandannas emerged unscathed...etc etc...

People who question that all the facts are accounted for are simply insane paranoid maniacs who spread the evil of doubt across that great and mighty nation of virtuous brave mighty soldiers of democratic sanctity and freedom.

I'm calling BS on this. If I made one crack about slavery I would be sent to diversity training or fired outright. It is the same way in every big company.

Hush! It is not internet acceptable to question 9/11. Don't make us dig out the "lol Truther" pictures, because so help us we will!

Suggesting the government doesn't love and treasure all of us like the precious snowflakes we are is just nonsense.

There was an entire thread on this very website devoted to lampooning and demonizing an obscure Republican senator from Wyoming mere hours after he died in agonizing slow pain from leukemia in front of his family and before the man's blood was even cold. (new window). What makes you think people on this website would treat group tragedies so differently?

for the record, rape can be funny too. Just imagine Porky Pig raping Elmer Fudd. No, really--picture it in your mind. It's funny, right? Of course it is, because they are two hilarious cartoon characters from the Looney Tunes series

most free nation on earth, racing toward second place and beyond by policing each other's speech for requisite patriotism! that's why they hate us, right -- our freedom?

Most people aren't stupid enough to do it at work. But there is far more to American discourse than the diversity policies at your particular workplace.

Until 2021. If you use the "South Park" model (the AIDS episode)the time period is 20 years.

The tragedy? Undoubtedly horrible, and poor comedic material.

But that ship? Come the fark on, that's an insult to those that died. Memorials should mean something besides a mere photo op for some useless politician.

Keep killing arabs, that's the way. Real results. But go lower key. The public will forget you are doing it, and go back to focusing on Obillary and McStain.

Hey...here's a good one.

This guy is hanging out the window because of the jet fuel fire in his office. His wife is watching the smoke rise on CNN at home. In a last choice of will, he jumps to his death instead of surrendering to the flames.

Hilarious!


Oh wait, is this one of those things that is beyond the pale for you? It just makes it that much funnier to know that a guy like you is getting his panties in a twist out there somewhere.

capecodcarl: jamspoon: what proportion of the USS New York is made up of human body parts?

I'm going to guess 0.00% unless you had a piece of structural steel as part of your body for some reason.


So absolutely zero human remains got mixed up with or adhered to the steel extracted from the rubble?

I thought that the whole point of using steel from the WTC was so the sailors could feel that some part of the victims were entombed in their ship and this would inspire them to greater acts of bravery on behalf of the nation.
