I've often wondered about this, whether there are subjects that are somehow beyond humour and that we don't want to make jokes about for fear of offence to people of groups. I'm not talking about bad jokes, or intentionally inflammatory jokes, but light hearted fun meant to show something doesn't have to be taken so seriously. And as an Australian, I feel it's my right to "take the piss" to lighten situations. A little humour can help stop arguments. Also, if we can't laugh at ourselves then I think we're a rather sorry lot as humans. Laughter and humour is a way of connecting us in a universal way. Do you think that there are some things that cannot be made fun of? Why or why not? I have heard jokes, or satire, about Muslims, the KKK, Nazis and Jews, all in a completely non-derogatory way. (If anyone would care to hear them, I'll oblige). I'm understand that such things can be taken to far, but in not he right context and words, I think you could laugh at almost anything.
