    I think some ppl on gupshup have been wayyyyy pushing its limit.

    the ppl playing the prank should have the brains to realize how far this joke is affecting someone & how upset the person can get...
    .. else it's just simply inconsiderate, and rude. and dense. and idiotic.

      Kohalic is right, Barysh. A joke is not a joke when it offends someone and makes fun of someone's background/religion/nationality etc.

      One needs to be really careful but we often ignore dat to have fun at others' expense

        Limit is when the joke hurts someone.

          Bharysh,

          is there a particular joke that you are referring to? Joke should be light-hearted but if someone's feelings are being hurt or if people are taking offence then obviously it needs to be looked at.

              There are Jokes, and then there are Jokes, but most importantly there are folks who are Jokes. Nothing wrong with Jokes, this too much political correctism is getting on my nerves more so than Xtreme. A best joke is when it is seriously funny and painfully thought-provoking. Sometimes, ethnic jokes go a little too far and they lose the fun that they are intended to create, even then, it is just a joke. Jokes should always be taken as a joke, if they are not, then they are not jokes. What I am saying is that your onion may be someone elseís water lily.

                      Chann Ji. Jokes ki, Tusi sanoo Dozakh (hell) vi bhaij deyo tay asi Khoosh. As long as I have nutcases like you and Rom to talk with, I donít need any jokes-shoks.

                      Pure, Rani is no water lily. She is an Onion that makes you cry.

                          Not me personally. Why get upset when I can just get even?

                          I hope the people this thread IS referring to can take the hint though.

                          ps: A- *hugs*
