Or humor can be just like anything else- something that divides people. Back in the old days when I was watching unmoderated threads (and probably to this day though I can't tell you for sure), and even on moderated threads, people would say things they thought were "funny"- but it was at the expense of one political side or the other. I don't think it was particularly good for "society". It just pissed people off.
