It is difficult to tell a good punch-line, when we’re preoccupied with pulling our punches.
I’m all for you protecting my feelings, but I’m feeling it’s time for some good jokes.
Nothing breaks the ice better than a good laugh at oneself, won’t someone please tell me some good micro-aggressions? The kind that tear the veneer off our false proprieties, and let us enjoy a good belly laugh, a chortle, or a chuckle together.
I’m Irish, so make fun of the Irish. I’m white, so tell me an off-color joke. Offend me, please!
Just let me know were alive still, were free still, and we can enjoy a little fun at each other’s expense still! These things can be told without malice; jabs can be taken in a spirit of friendship. But it’s hard to be friends when we’re always pulling our punches. Someone, please tell me a good punch-line!
