Question for y'all on racist jokes: OK or not? How far is too far? I admit I find a lot of them hilarious.

I don't see why a joke would not be OK.

It's 'too far' when it isn't a joke.

Case by case but the okayness will always be in your favour if you're actually funny and not just attempting to be edgy.

Whether it actually reflects racism is a case within cases by cases within cases type of thing.

I guess it wasn't as funny in retrospect, but it's funny to mention the defooted guy getting mad at a non-disabled-friendly Helen Keller quote.

I guess it depends on how genuinely funny it is. "Paddy Englishman, Paddy Irishman, Paddy Scotchman" jokes usually had a point and you kind of couldn't take offence. Also, the other two who weren't the butt of the joke usually got ribbed too. I never considered them particularly racist, though of course they were. Jokes about black people are probably less nuanced, though I admit I haven't heard a joke I would call really racist in some time. As Frown says, case by case I guess. And it also depends on whether or not it's your race being joked about.

The important question I would ask about jokes seen as racist is: are they used just to be racist or are they used to make a funny (depending on your standpoint of course) point? I mean, nobody ever wants to hear from Bernard Manning again, do they?

Paddy and Murphy are traveling to Australia. Before they leave home, one of their dads gives them both a bit of advice: "You watch them Aussie cab drivers. They'll rob you blind. Don't you go paying them what they ask. You haggle."

At the Sydney airport, the pair catch a cab to their hotel. When they reach their destination, the cabbie says, "That'll be twenty dollars, lads."

"Oh no you don't! My dad warned me about you. You'll only be getting fifteen dollars from me," says Paddy.
"And you'll only be getting fifteen from me too!" adds Murphy.

****ing classic.

Texan walks into an Irish pub, says "Thought you guys had big mountains here? Bah! Why, back home I could stand at the top of one of our mountains and yell MURPHY! and the echo would come back MURPHY MURPHY MURPHy MURPhy MUrphy..."

"Hah! Sure that's nothin'!" says Paddy. "Round here, I can stand at the top of that mountain there and yell MURPHY! And the echo will come back: WHICH MURPHY DO YE WANT???"
