We have been inundated with messages of support from our loyal followers following yesterday’s update on the investigation into the great CJotD joke logbook heist. Thanks to all those that wrote in: it would be no exaggeration to say that you have been the sturdy, Corinthian-order column propping us up throughout this emotionally trying time.
The investigation continues, and so must Crap Joke of the Day™. Onto today’s mirth.
CJotD prides itself on its ethics. We do not publish racist or sexist jokes. And, despite a growing trend in mainstream comedy, we also refuse to use humour as a crowbar to bludgeon people because of the way they look, or the lifestyle choices they have made. We believe we are world leaders in this regard.
Saying all of that however, sometimes – indeed often – a joke needs to include reference to a certain stereotype. Without it, it runs the risk of becoming comedically redundant. Far from poking fun or marginalising people who ‘belong’ to that stereotype however, the CJotD equality team like to remind people that these jokes are actually celebrations of the things we humans share, and the ways that we differ.
What’s are the key learnings here? Well, firstly that CJotD is essentially a festival of diversity. And, secondly, if you’re a goth, don’t assume today’s joke is judging you. It isn’t – and you can join in with the laughter. In fact, why not ‘like’ us on our Facebook page to become a real part of the CJotD fraternity?
I was walking through town today and saw a group of fat goths. They were morbidly obese.
Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
