That's right anything goes, EXCEPT POLITICAL JOKES, but let's be honest, it has to be funny...

Funny does not mean vicious or malicious mockery and it does not mean attacking other posters...

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE:


I'M VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE WISDOM OF SI HAS MOVED THIS FORUM TO THE POLITICAL CATEGORY, THIS IS VERY GOOD NEWS FOR THIS FORUM... THEREFORE, ALL POLITICAL JOKES AND HUMOR ARE NOW WELCOME AND WILL BE ALLOWED WITH ONLY ONE EXCEPTION, ABSOLUTELY NO JOKES OR ATTACKS OR NEGATIVE COMMENTS AT OR AGAINST THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WILL BE TOLERATED... ANY VIOLATION WHATSOEVER OF THIS REQUEST WILL BE ADDRESSED RAPIDLY AND WITHOUT MERCY...


IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT THE PRESIDENT, THEN KINDLY SHARE IT, BUT IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY THEN IT'S BEST TO KEEP IT TO YOURSELF OR RISK BEING DEPORTED... did I just say deported??? Yes, I did... hey, lighten up, it's a joke thread... LOL!!!

No lewd content: The posting of images that are sexually offensive is forbidden and is a violation of SI's terms of use.

WHAT IS HUMOR?

There are probably many ways to define that elusive human phenomenon we call humor but I will try here...

Humor is a narrative that allows everyone to share a common memory, and then the punch line take us in a different direction and exposes the underbelly weakness of all human folly...

Slapstick is almost always funny in film or on stage, but most slapstick in real life is not funny...

As human beings, all of us already are hardwired to recognize humor, it really doesn't need to be defined although what we do find as truly and honestly humorous and comical typically fits the above definition of what humor really is...

So, share with us something comical but please be intellectually honest about it that it is funny...

Sure even political humor can be very funny, and self effacing humor is funny, we so often see politicians make fun of themselves during those annual dinner roasts or annual dinner gatherings, but their humor is always clean and honest and not vicious or malicious...

So, post anything you think is funny but please be sure it's honest and respectful and not just slinging crap, if you read this far into this introduction then you're certainly smart enough to know what this means so please comply...

Also, if you have another good definition of what humor really is, then let me know and I will add it to this header with you SI nick name attached to it...

THE MODERATOR

As moderator I will do my best to ensure we can enjoy legitimate humor, this includes ANY topic you want to present, honest humor reaches into all human activity, there are no exceptions, so have some fun...

EVERY POSTER HERE IS ALSO A MODERATOR, HERE'S HOW:

If I receive two or more private messages addressing a post which is thought to be inappropriate, then I will post a Humor Poll which will run for about 2 days and every poster can then vote whether or not that joke was legitimately offensive...

If that joke is deemed offensive by popular vote, then that poster will be advised my me via private message to remind him/her that a specific joke was not considered funny...

This is an experiment in equal voices and right of expression in order to moderate this forum into a successful endeavor...

Of course, stay within the SI TOU Rules, that really goes without saying...

Oh, also, kindly don't insult the moderator, it's never funny...

HAVE FUN!!!
