I'd say a punch to the face and everything's even. I love physical comedy.

Let us bring back the good ol' Hang, Draw, and Quarter. That always seems to work well, and it isn't expensive either!

As long as the joke is used for comedy and not for insult, I'd say it's alright.

"As long as the joke is used for comedy and not for insult, I'd say it's alright." I'm not against racist jokes, but this just makes no sense. Part of the joke is that one person is insulted, as it directly applies to that person or a group they belong to. Being the butt of a joke is unavoidable unless you segregate your audiences and only tailor jokes to people you know wont be there to get offended. They are still having insults thrown at their lifestyles ... They just arent around to hear about it. So basically youre saying that all jokes are well and good so long as discretion is used and someone who might get offended is not around. Tell them only behind their backs?
