Cataholic: LasersHurt: Brostorm: Murder jokes OK, anything referencing a woman is literally Hitler.

Off color jokes about historically put upon groups are only okay if it's obvious that you're laughing "with" them and not "at" them. This man has not earned that credibility.

In other words, "it's OK when we do it."


No, it's the difference between inclusive and exclusive comedy. Just because you don't understand the difference doesn't mean it's hypocrisy.

We've all told tasteless jokes. If you're dumb enough to be a legislator and post one on your Facebook Page, you shouldn't be trusted with any office higher than dogcatcher.

Danger Mouse: FirstNationalBastard: Danger Mouse: I donate a lot of money to the Tempura House.

It's a shelter for lightly battered women.

Goddamnit, I wanted to post the Carlin joke!

But, you got here first.

it's an oldie, but still gets a chuckle, but I don't think it's George Carlin.


I believe the album was "Playin With Your Head".

He was mentioning the charities he works for, and one of them was Tempura House, a shelter for lightly battered women.

Now, whether he came up with the joke or not is anyone's guess, that's just where I heard it first.

I think the jokes is hilarious.  But I'm not going to share it tonight with my class full of college kids.  You see, when you grow up, us adults have to learn there are appropriate times, places and audiences for these sorts of jokes.  The basis of these jokes is that abusing women can be funny.  So when I crack these jokes, I crack them only with a private audience that I know damn well also would find them humorous.

You SHOULD be outraged that this guy apparently thinks abused women is such a non-issue that publicly joking about it is acceptable and funny.

He likes to give oral sex to women after he beats them is the implication. Your inability to fully comprehend it does not make it acceptable.

No. The joke (regardless who tells it) isn't that someone beats a woman before oral sex. The joke is funny because the teller mistakes battered for being fried. It's silly, It's sexy, and plays on  teller being a bit ignorant.  It's offensive because we're not supposed to laugh at anything involving domestic abuse and implies the teller may be indifferent to such a reprhensable act.. The joke doesn't imply  the teller actually prefers to beat woman.

/jokes suck when you have to explain why they are funny.


I'm still trying to understand why "plain" is the opposite of "battered".

No, the part about the women being battered (as in fish) is a play on words. The graphic illustrates exactly what the joker intended. There are two ways to eat a woman. He was talking R. Kelly, not Jeffery Dahmer.


There is nothing wrong with the joke in and of itself...its a joke hahaha.  what is wrong is this douche posting it on his politics blog in his capacity as a legislator.  He can tell these jokes to friends in private and *no problem*.  Doing something like this on a public facing site is irresponsible, crude, immature and makes him look insensitive to his female constituents.  For all we know he despises people who batter women but this makes him appear as a giant misogynist.  The fake outrage industry orgasms over things like this.  *throws over plate of donuts* This is how we get ants!

You know, my dad slapped my mom around when I was younger and she was lucky to have a family support system strong enough to throw his ass out and raise my sister and I without him...

I have no problem with dark or off color humor. I enjoy it, in fact.

But maybe, just maybe, assholes like this, who belong to a political party that has recently tried to force women to have children against their wishes, mandated needless ultrasounds for women seeking abortions, made completely ridiculous and offensive statements (in seriousness) about rape and domestic abuse, and a host of other misogynistic comments and laws, should lay off this type of humor.

But, of course, the wont.... Because their clueless and shameless.

I went to high school with this asshat. He was an asshat then, he's an asshat now. He had no friends - by choice. People didn't bully him or anything, he just was plain rude and mean to anyone who spoke to him. He comes from money and was of the opinion that everyone was beneath him.

He also used to give ladies weed in exchange for sexual favors/makeouts. He's a real charmer. I bet his wife is super proud of him.

play the victim/cry a little more... look,  if you are a conservative your policies and past rhetoric make it plausible that you actually are fine with beating women so when you make jokes about it that past comes back to haunt you.

There are key developmental stages most of us reach. Like, learning that when you close your eyes, Mommy or Daddy don't disappear. Learning that if you hit someone it hurts them because they are a person just like you. And learning that you don't tell off-color jokes unless you are with a group of close friends who can recognize your tone and intent. Neckbeard guy appears to have missed this last one.

Here's the thing that some people are having to understand:
It's a stupid joke, regardless of who made it.
It's a stupid joke to MAKE for a politician period.
It's an especially stupid joke to make for a politician in a party that's been under heavy fire on woman's issues for years now.

Bloody William: It's a generally inappropriate play on words that, when worded and delivered correctly, can be amusing outside of mixed company, but when you're a lawmaker who has to deal with that very problem, half of your constituents are women, and you're calling attention to the fact that the number of abused women in your state is three times larger than the population of my hometown, It is grossly inappropriate. It's like how some "dead baby" jokes can be stupid but amusing, but you don't farking tell them to anyone who actually lost a baby, and you don't tell them when making policy on prenatal care availability.
