Is it the one with Gary Glitter sittong on a bench with Michael Jackson?
I dont understand how people think these up and how quickly they spread.

now i want to know the joke

Um, I guess your DH should have known his audience better.
Personally I can handle humour about almost anything, it helps to soften the pain of the underlying awful reality.

Am gobsmacked.
Ask DH, how would he feel knowing the person he told the joke to had been abused, or had a LO who had been abused.
Then ask him how he can be sure they haven't.

I have had at least 5 gary glitter jokes sent to me via text.

they are all distastefull, some are just sick.
A couple i can almost see the funny side.

Sort of joke that would have made 'Sorry I haven't a clue'...

Not unreasonable to be disgusted.
Who on earth thinks these "jokes" up

Sorry, just chortled a bit. {blush]
Its horrible but sometimes I can see these things are quite well crafted. There were tons after Diana, 9-11 etc, dont know where i stand on them but dh just roared with laughter.

i dont find those type of jokes funny either

the other day someone sent me a link to a picture of gary glitter walking through duty free carrying a bag, and the head of a child was sticking out

he seemed to think i was having a sense of humour failure when i said i didnt appreciate it

I must defend 'Sorry I haven't a clue' and dear departed Humph. They never made paedophile jokes.

hobnob Tue 26-Aug-08 19:49:06

At least, I'm pretty sure they didn't. Not ones like that.
