See if you hate people in general, or particular groups of people, or just one person ... you are just like a dictator ... what varies is the level of ambition ;-(

One of the best jokes I read years ago!!!

And I love jokes.  But have you ever noticed that ALL jokes depend on someone being an idiot or looking stupid?  I tried to think of one that wasn't, and failed.

Ooo.  Now you have me thinking.  I can think of one or two that require specialized knowledge to 'get' it, but those are mostly science and math jokes that resolve into puns, like knowing the indegral of d(cabin)/cabin is ln(cabin) (pronounced 'log cabin') or "What do you do with a dead chemist?  Barium."

The other non-stupidity side of jokes is schadenfreude, of course, or as Mel Brooks puts it: "Tragedy is what happens to me, comedy is what happens to you."

Can you give an example?  Even if the comedian is the butt of a joke, that still makes him/her look bad.

I once made up a joke about Monica Lewinski, that she'd moved to Cuba because Castro had bigger cigars. But who even remembers her, now?

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, they won't be able to hear you from that far away. Plus, you'll have their shoes.

And that was insulting her sexual diminishment by Bill Clinton about the cigars.

Try again to find a joke that doesn't humiliate someone...  ;)

Would you include limericks as jokes? I know some of those that don't humiliate anyone.

For example:

There was a young lady named Bright
 Whose speed was far faster than light;
 She set out one day
 In a relative way
 And returned on the previous night.
