I have noticed a lot of weird topics on this forum so I thought I'd make one myself. 
 
My question is, do you sometimes laugh at things, in your own company, that would be considered poor taste? 
 
Here is a 'light' example of something not nice that I recently found humour in: 
Hour long goat attack puts man in hospital. 
 
I have laughed at worse things but I don't want to be flamed so I'll leave it to that one example. 
 
So, do you?

Do racist and holocaust jokes count? Sarah Silverman<3

#3 Posted by darkdragonmage99 (741 posts) -

NO because I laugh at this kinda stuff all the time 

#4 Posted by Dimsey (964 posts) -

I'm pretty fond of dead baby jokes, so I guess.

#5 Posted by VergilMayCry (17 posts) -

Very rarely. I generally  laugh at cynicism (black humour).

I laugh after someone falls a good distance and then hits the ground with a thunk. Just something about people falling and getting hurt amuse me sometimes :/.

It's the only way you'll get me to watch the news.  Unless it's some kind of natural disaster or tragedy.  That would be in bad taste. Unless it's a hilarious national disaster, in which case.. yes.

Cool, guess I'm not the only one ;)

#9 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

It's called schadenfreude i think.

#10 Posted by eroticfishcake (7787 posts) -

Very rarely. But having said that I do like black humour a lot. Reminds me of a story I heard where a man was cutting the grass in his front garden using those manual powered lawn mowers. He was wearing open toed sandals and he managed to cut his big toe off. Sounds nasty alright.  
 
But then the toe flew up and took his eye out. Hehe.

What about when you deliberately hurt someone?...
#17 Posted by EvilMuffin (133 posts) -

No. I'm a pretty empathetic person. =/
I do like fictional black humor though.

#18 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

I laugh in the face of danger. So... yes.

If it's funny it's funny. The only Taboo that I have is to consider something Taboo.

Make the corresponding topic and find out ;)

@TaliciaDragonsong: N-no. That's fine....I think I rather not know. Some things are better left alone after all.

#27 Posted by angryphil (84 posts) -

Hahaha I started laughing at the headline, but when I found out it was an 88 year old man it made it a little less funny.

#28 Posted by zepp (230 posts) -

Yea, I pretty much laugh at anything.

#33 Posted by sodiumCyclops (2644 posts) -

Of course. It's always better to look on the bright side of life in any situation or story.

Now that I think about it, I do occasionally find some of the things my grandmother (who has Alzheimer's) says. 
 
And I laugh at some really bad sexual stuff; I'm a terrible person!!!
#35 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6309 posts) -

Yes.

#36 Posted by Faint (833 posts) -

it would depend on your definition of bad

#37 Posted by mano521 (1231 posts) -

#38 Posted by Dantekiller (206 posts) -

#39 Posted by TwilitEnd656 (617 posts) -

I'll laugh at FICTIONAL stuff.

#40 Posted by ProfessorK (825 posts) -

I mean funny is funny, no matter what it is. Case in point if you hear some guy fell out a window and died you might not laugh. But if said guy was standing in the window masturbating while peeping on his neighbor and fell, then you might think that's hilarious.

#41 Posted by FlyingRat (1446 posts) -

Maybe the odd fat guy falling over here and there, but not often, no.

#42 Posted by Labbo94 (155 posts) -

I definitely get into the mood to laugh at some potentially morbid shit now and then. I have a pretty off-kilter sense of humor at times.

#43 Posted by Yummylee (22272 posts) -

Sure, Dark Humour is what agrees with my funny bone the most these days.

#44 Posted by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

Yes, I do. For some reason I find "Meet the Spartans" very funny...

I feel bad about it, but meh.

@afrofools: I don't think you can call yourself a human if you don't laugh at bad stuff sometimes.

That would be hilarious.

At first I was like, "That's not even funny dude, what the hell." But then I laughed my ass off, you smug bastard.
 
Edit: One time, I couldn't stop laughing at this video of a deaf guy in a sign language class. I felt so bad for doing it, but I couldn't help myself.
